My struggles with weight started over six years ago when I had to have a hysterectomy due to cancer. I was prepared for the battle of cancer treatments and giving my body time to heal. But was not prepared for what the lack of hormones was about to do to my body within the next year. Within the first few months I put on 10 pounds, then 20, then 30 and you get where I’m going with this. After 6 years I put on 50 pounds. It was hard going from the active fitness buff to hearing whispers over cubicle walls from coworkers saying, “Can you believe how heavy she is now.” I had a close friend who was trying a weight loss program at Total Body Wellness and was having great success, so I decided to call. That phone call has forever changed my life. It’s been years since I’ve been at the weight I am now. I can’t thank Angela enough for her encouragement, advice, support and hugs. I now feel like I have control over my body, not my body having control over me any longer. I have the tools that will support me for life and for that I will be forever grateful.
