Join one of BlackDoctor.org’s Facebook fans, Tia, on her journey to weight loss.  While her journey took her on many twists and turns, it landed her exactly where she needed to be: healthy!  Read below for her account:

My weight loss journey began in February 2012. I was 249 pounds on a 5’1 medium built body frame. I was uncomfortable and tired of not being able to find clothing suitable for me. I didn’t want to have to deal with any health issues that I could get related to being overweight. I was determined to lose it and get healthy. I signed up for weight watchers and I did the program for about five months. I got off track here and there. I did the fat burners and appetite suppressants as well. Do know that there are no magic pills you have to put in your part when taking supplements. Forward, when July came I had a talk with myself. I had to tell myself if you truly want this change to take place then you have to make it happen. No excuses, no giving up! You have to stay focused on meeting your intended goals and that’s what I did.
