I was titled "The Biggest Winner" by Oxygen Magazine, May 2014. Why is this? It is because I lost over 120 pounds and did it my way! I figured it out for myself after trying and failing at diets of all sorts. The beauty of this is that I defied naysayers who degraded me over the years. Children, adults, and even some family members ridiculed me for my weight and I was a joke and loser to many. I proved them all wrong and defied negative predictions and obstacles. It took me over three and a half years to lose over 120 pounds and I have kept it off over three years! I wrote a 250 page manuscript of all my tips and tricks that I would like to have published so I can help others. Literary agents have turned me down, saying I am not famous enough, yet celebrity weight loss books offer lousy advice like getting stomach surgery and hiring a weight loss trainer. It is my wish to get my book published to motivate others and not have them continue to suffer as I had at 272 pounds. In the meantime, I wish to motivate through this blog as I continue my book publishing journey!
