I lost 40 pounds and gained it all back. That’s the story. Well, not the entire story and certainly not the end of the story. There’s no way that I can tell this story in a single post. Stay tuned for this multi-series posts.
I appeared on ABC’s ‘The Revolution’ in 2012. My weight loss journey started in 2011 with the show (pre-production). My first weigh in was at 203 pounds. I wanted to do the show because my weight was out of control after my family suffered a tragedy. I turned to food for comfort, my lifestyle changed completely.
