After having my 3rd son, I found myself considerably overweight. After 8 years (including 2 more sons) of trying many, many weight loss methods, I finally stumbled upon the “secret”. I lost 50 pounds in 5 and a half months and have kept it off since 2001. Once you read my story and why I should not have succeeded, you’ll definitely say, “If she can do it, I can do it!”

I know my story is not typical – and neither is yours. Everybody has obstacles, some more, some less, some more serious for sure. I KNOW you can do it, because I have been where you are right now.

On my website I will teach you everything I learned through this journey. It covers the thoughts I had, the things I did, and the changes I went through. I can help you write your own weight loss success story – all you have to do is Ask Liz.

The moral to my story? If I can lose weight, you can too.
