Cortney Casey Before Before: "I Stopped Emotional Eating and Made the Decision to Change My Life"

"I was chubby all my life," Cortney Casey said. "Instead of taking productive action, I attempted to soothe my feelings of inadequacy by emotional eating."

Three months before her wedding, Cortney decided to change her life. "I embraced the South Beach lifestyle, which involves eating lean meats, veggies, fruit, and whole grains." She also began exercising regularly.

Cortney Casey After After

Cortney went from weighing 229 pounds and straining into a size 20 to weighing 151 pounds and fitting into a size 4 to 6.

She works out six days a week, doing aerobics, weight training, jogging, and biking. She's gone a long way for someone who used to get breathless climbing the stairs. "I'm thrilled with my progress!" Cortney said.

Her advice? "The key is embracing healthy eating and exercising as a lifestyle, not a temporary change."
