Read more on Donna’s success after her weight-loss:
What she did on her summer vacation
Donna went on a fishing expedition at a private outpost in Ontario where she, her husband, and two other couples reeled in small-mouth bass and pike and even tussled with a muskellunge. She reports that the rustic accommodations took some getting used to, but that enjoying fresh catch-of-the-day grilled right at the shoreline made it all worthwhile.
Actions more than words
“When I decided to lose weight, I kept it private and didn’t talk about it much. My husband and son were the only ones I told. My son was at college during those four months. He knew what was going on and he was impressed and proud of me. I hope my success inspires him to take good care of himself, because it can get harder as you get older.”
Putting your health first
“I’ve attended conventions for professional women where I noticed that women who weren’t overweight were the exception rather than the rule. And these were very successful women—executives at the top of their game, taking care of their bosses, colleagues, and even their cars better than themselves. For me, taking charge of my health is a matter of personal responsibility.”
