Pounds lost: 70
Turning point: I was happily married to a wonderful man with two beautiful kids and a corporate job, and I was totally miserable. At 206 pounds (my heaviest), I realized that I had to make a change for my health and well-being so I commit to an intense exercise program. Eight weeks later, both my husband and my best friend were killed in a tragic plane crash. Instead of giving up, I used exercise as my therapy. I ran a half marathon three months later and then the full San Diego Marathon five months after that.
Weight-loss tip: I've learned that endorphins are the best anti-depressant of all. Remember to take care of yourself during times of extreme stress—it's the first step to being able to take care of those around you.
