“I just decided it was time for a change, to be more healthy and to do something for myself because I do so much for everybody else. At first, people were saying, ‘You’re losing weight, you look great,’ and I just ran with it,” she previously explained.

“I hope that somebody will realize that’s going through the same weight loss struggles that they’re not alone and realize it’s not all peaches and cream. I hope one person gets something out of it, that they realize the struggles are real. I’d tell people who are struggling with weight, just take it one day at a time. You can’t just give up because it seems like the easy way to go. Trust me, I wanted to give up several times through this journey.”
