I would think that a person with that much self determination and dedication... should probably pick a better place to harvest the rewards of that determination ...than by being employed at Hooters.
So, she needed to get insulted by someone who doesn't know or care about her to make a life impacting and improving decision like losing 128 lbs of unhealthy fat? She didn't know she had to lose that weight before?
Losing 128 pounds in a year is not healthy. Especially when you consider she was only 250 pounds before, that's over half of her body weight. It doesn't matter what her "diet" was, it wasn't anything that should be copied.
"Only 250"? Those two words should not be in the same sentence.
And how many surgeries did she have? Notice how they always omit that info? You can't drop 128 lbs without your body being destroyed. Once you balloon up like that your body is wrecked.....unless you got money.
Great Job!! I was hitting 400lbs, I got a second job as an exterminator to help pay for my sons school. I dropped 80 pounds in one summer and down another 20 so far this spring. Lots of stairs and walking, carrying etc.. Never felt better even though I have some more to go... Plus I really like what I am doing and meeting people. Get out there and find something you like to do that involves physical activity if you can.
Great job girl!
did anyone read the article? Sure her goal was to lose the weight and get hired by hooters- which she is as a standard to which society measures beauty. But she is also getting her Bachelors degree and hopes to get her masters afterwards. her hair is short as support for her sister who has breast cancer! read before commenting.
Good job, now grow your hair out and look like a lady!
She looks 100% a Lady! Are you blind or just afraid of Beautiful women?
The world can afford to lose 128 pounds on a diet BUT no information about a diet to help more people just aboiut blah, blah, blha. One more uninteresting "news" avent.
It's no secret magical method. All you have to do is decide to lose weight and do it. It's not easy, but it is well documented and extremely simple.... Diet & exercise.
Poor tony, he's got a lot of time. If you feel that badly about yourself, you should read a book, or get a job, or a hobby. That way, you can do more with yourself then trolling on AOL message boards. Oh! I have a great idea: you can learn to capitalize! Then you can write Tony instead of Tony.
