My before photo


Some of you may not have seen my "before" photo... Chelle Stafford - Before photo, January 2007. 194 lbs.this was taken on January 1st, 2007. That's me - fat and miserable.

The very next day, Bill and I signed up at a local gym. The personal trainer randomly assigned to me was Tabitha :-)  She kicked my ass, taught me what food was and how to eat it, and became my friend along the way. 

When I blew out my knee (the first time), she told me I had to get serious about my food and sent me to the bookstore to pick up The Eat Clean Diet by Tosca Reno, which had just been published.  Tab said, "This is what I've been telling you. THIS is how to eat."

Even with an injury (and an incredibly talented & creative trainer who figured out how to keep me motivated and working with that injury), by changing my food habits, I changed my life. I reached my goal weight and flew right past it! Through my new lifestyle, I've maintained a 72 lb loss for nearly 2 1/2 years. There's no going back for me.
