Andrea Went From a Size 14 to 4!Being "chubby" made Andrea unhappy and insecure. Using Joy's program as her guide, Andrea resolved to get fit — and succeeded at surpassing her goal weight. Now she's all smiles!
In Andrea's family, weight has always been a big issue.
When she was growing up, her father was known as Big Papa Bear because he
weighed nearly 400 pounds. Although Andrea never considered herself fat, she
knew she was carrying extra weight and didn't feel on top of her game. Instead,
she felt chubby, thick, and somewhat self conscious. Determined to feel
comfortable in her own skin, Andrea (and her dad, Big Papa Bear) followed Joy's
program. She strategically planned out her meals, started to cook slimmed-down
versions of her favorite foods, and walked as much as possible (she was in
dental school and had a hectic schedule). She eventually lost 35 pounds, and
went from a size 12/14 to a tiny 2/4!
Today, Andrea is a successful dentist and will seize any
opportunity to pass along health advice and slimming recipes to her patients.
And by the way, her father has dropped over 200 pounds and has transformed his
life as well!
