Weight gain story from @fitnessdore My personal experience with losing my father to a heart attack drove me to a really dark place. I lost myself completely and almost gave up on life.

Weight loss story from @niece_see In 2013, I reached a low point in my life. My grades were slipping (which caused me to be ineligible for Delta Sigma Theta at the time) my mother and step father were going through a divorce and I was going through a break up from a “situationship”. I felt like God was the only person I could turn to. That summer I literally just walked and talked with Jesus. Walking turned into jogging, jogging turned into running. That summer I weighed in at 245 and at the end I was 215. 2014 started...

Weightloss story from @metamorfittie I started a new job in 2011 and had gone shopping to buy some smart office wear.
