My name is Stephanie, but I am often referred to by my nickname, Nes.
In 2005, after being obese the majority of my life, I decided to lose
weight. I starved myself, and obsessively exercised. I ended up with a
visit from the paramedics 4 months later. I had lost 97 lbs in 120
days, and was dying.
I became pregnant with my second child in 2007, and didn't really gain
that much weight, and was able to maintain a healthy body at 150 lbs.
for many years. In 2010, I became pregnant with my third and last
child, and really packed on the weight.
After the birth of my last child, I began
drinking excessively, and suffered through alcoholism. I am now 5
months sober, and plan tonever
The weight gain associated with the
drinking was substantial. I am
currently at 237 lbs, and very unhappy. I am tired a lot, and it feels
difficult to move. I would like to regain the energy I had prior to my
bout with alcoholism, as well as improve my body size, and strength.

Coach Tiffany's response:
Thank you for joining us and creating a
journal to share your safe weight loss tips. I get so much strength
from reading peoples journals and
learning from their ups and downs. You have a beautiful family, you
guys look so happy on the picture.
Congratulations on your 5 months of
sobriety that is no easy feat. I know from my struggle with food that
changing any habit, be it drinking, smoking, eating, whatever, it is
I’m not sure if you are in AA, Alcholic’s
Anonymous, or not but if you are I hope that the tools and coping
strategies that you are learning in your groups can be transferred over
to helping you control your eating habits as well. You may have to
think a little bit about how you can reword what you are learning into safe weight loss tips
but it will be worth it.
feel that food is just as addictive as other vices and those of us that
suffer with weight issues can benefit from the structure and support of
people going through the same things.
That’s why I decided to offer free weight
loss help because we can all motivate and encourage one another in a
safe, non-judgmental environment.
Since you have been at both extremes with
your weight I am excited to hear all that you have learned
through the years.
I’ve tried several diet programs myself
but now I am determined to achieve natural rapid weight loss.
I like the liquid weight loss diet because
I can make my green smoothies and juices in the morning using my vita-mix blender then
I know exactly what I put in it.
The green smoothie in the picture is what
I'm drinking right now. I made it in my blender from vitamix.com. It has kale,
celery, parsley, tomato, pear, and mixed frozen fruit. Yummy.
What do you think is the best exercise for
weight loss? The number one safe weight loss tips that I plan on
implementing soon is to buy a pedometer and walk 10,000
steps each day and I have an elliptical machine at home that I
have big plans for.
