CNN recently featured the story of Cherie Steffen, a personal fitness trainer & blogger. But she didn’t start out this way. Cherie had been battling with her weight for most of her life. Her sisters were naturally on the thin side but her body was different. Subsequently, she continued to gain weight throughout her childhood. Before her mother died, she said, “Save money. Lose weight.” Words that stayed with Cherie.
However, she didn’t really start her weight loss journey until a professor called her “Precious,” referring to the character Gabourey Sidibe played. This of course was hurtful. She then started exercising, taking small steps and increasing her exercise regime with time. She lost 30 pounds the first year and has now lost 85 lbs total. Now, that’s an amazing story.
