I am a native of Georgia. I grew up eating the basic southern diet. We started baking instead of frying when I was in my early teens. I have always been active playing outside, biking, walking, playing tennis etc. I stress eat and started to gain weight in my late 20s. Since I am only 5'2 the weight gain caused me to be exhausted and depressed. I want to get back to being and feeling healthy so that I can enjoy the outdoors and feel normal again. I have not been able to sustain a diet program for more than 4 months. The restrictions are just too hard to maintain. I am excited to change my entire way of eating and thinking about food.
