There’s nothing more inspiring than to hear from a man or woman who has lost 20, 50, 100 or even more pounds, did so in a healthy manner, and has kept off the weight. You can read about the intended results of a diet plan all day long, and even wrap-up the intentions in a shiny celebrity bow, but until you see it in action on someone just like yourself, it’s all hype.
Which is why we are thrilled to be launching a special section on DietsInReview.com featuring real people with real stories about real weight loss. We want to share the stories of women and men who made a commitment to themselves and celebrate their hard work by showcasing these true weight loss stories. Minus the hype.
One hypeless story that we enjoy telling again and again is that of our Chief Mom, Carmen Staicer. Her weight loss story has been a motivator for so many women. As a mom of six, she was busy taking care of everyone else. Until one day she found out the kids at school told her daughter that she had a “fat mother.” Carmen made a New Year’s Resolution “that I was GOING to lose weight, to succeed no matter what.” And she did! Carmen says it was the hardest thing she’s ever done, but that hard work paid off in an 80 pound loss that she’s kept off for going on three years. Today, she is a strong advocate for living an active, healthy, balanced life.
Every day we receive emails and read the comments throughout the site from people who’ve lost weight and are excited to share their experience with the world, just like Carmen. So the door is open – we invite you to tell us your story. How did you get started? What was your breaking point? Did you make it up as you went or subscribe to a pre-built plan? What kept you motivated? How do you maintain today?
Please tell us your story by clicking below and completing the form. It’s a jumping-off point to start a conversation. Our editors will follow-up with those individuals who truly stand-out in winning the battle against the bulge. We’ll then share your story with our entire community and give you and your success the recognition deserved!
