“I was probably in fifth grade when I realized I was always bigger than the other kids,” Beth Weick says. And as an adult, every Monday was the beginning of a new diet for her.

Looking at photos of herself at the beach in 2007, Weick says she cried and knew she didn’t want to be that person anymore. “I would tell myself that I was healthy, but I couldn’t say that anymore. I was 40 years old, on blood pressure medication and my doctor said I was one office visit away from cholesterol and Type 2 diabetes prescriptions,” Weick says.

 

But her weight slowly crept back, and Weick realized that diets don’t work for her. She needed a new lifestyle.

She turned to Weight Watchers in July 2011 and got rid of unrealistic goals and deadlines. She dedicated the next month to learning a new, healthy lifestyle and getting serious about exercise. She came to enjoy walking rather than looking at it as something to just get through.
