Vanessa’s personal story: “Growing up in the South you eat large portions, at least my family did. Homemade biscuits, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, collard greens and cornbread and lets not forget my favorite sweet potato pie.
On December 27, 2007 I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol problems. I did not want to take any medication because I felt the side effects were worse than the cure. So I started walking that day. I purchased a treadmill for home and started on my lifestyle change. Losing the weight was easy but keeping it off has been the hardest thing in my life. I have kept it off for 6 years 2 months.” As of today Vanessa is --- Age: 58 -- Weight: 124 lbs.
