October 2001

After three years of trying to lose weight, I found that I had actually gained weight by climbing to over 300 pounds. My last year before college, I decided that was enough, things had to change. Between Thanksgiving 1999 and Thanksgiving 2000, I lost 130 pounds on the First Place program. What a reason to give thanks! Thank you God, for showing me how too have the life I’ve always wanted.
