My name is Amy, I am a magazine editor who's single with a cat (feel free to insert any single-woman-over-30-cliches here!). I moved to PA recently after a lifetime in New Jersey. When I switched jobs, a few of my co-workers recommended me for the Trevose Behavior Modification Program--basically a calorie counting, lifestyle-changing plan. I really love the group, and at a $1 per week, you can beat the price. Plus, the results are shared with the University of Pennsylvania's weight-loss studies group, so I feel like I might be helping others as I get myself into shape.
When I started I weighed in at 231 pounds, which at 5 feet on a good day had me looking a bit like Jaba the Hut. It's been 14 months and I've lost 76.5 pounds. I'd like to just get on the weight chart as normal, which for me will be 131. Things have been rough on the weight loss front, but I knew when I started that the losing would take about 2-3 years and the maintaining would be a lifelong effort.
One should eat to live, not live to eat.
