My Story: “At The End Of The Day, I Had Nothing Left To Give”

Amber was like most mothers: overworked and tired. From cooking and cleaning to taking care of the kids, there was no time left to take care of herself. Sound familiar? Well, everything was going as it always does until one day Amber looked in the mirror and saw she had ballooned up to 200 lbs, the heaviest she’s ever been.  She knew she had to do something. The 5’6″ mom took control and lost nearly 40 to weigh 163 lbs with more weight loss to come!

BlackDoctor.org spoke with Amber about what it took to lose the weight and keep it off. Take a look below:

What was your motivation? What inspired you?

I was motivated to lose the weight, because I had lost a sense of who I was and was using food and alcohol to comfort myself. I had become a stay at home mom after having my second child and I was very depressed, lonely, stressed, and become dependent on alcohol to get through most days.
