I've never struggled with major weight loss. I'm lucky to have my mother's genetics and I've been active my entire life. While I've had my own issues with my body, most of my struggles were internal. No one could tell that I was suffering because it wasn't reflected in my outward appearance.

For those embarking on a weight loss journey, their struggle is easily observable. Outsiders can see that healthy living has taken on a deeper meaning for them as they work to shed pounds and improve overall fitness. I've asked my cousin Becky to share her inspiring story!

  1. Aw, look at you both, so cute. :)
    Can't wait to read her story.

  2. Can't wait to read about Becky's journey. Wondering how much of a struggle it was for her to be discipline about her eating and exercising...
