Alethea Wair Before Before: "I Approached Weight-Loss with a Go-Getter Attitude"

Alethea Wair couldn't recognize herself when she saw her Disney World vacation photos. She weighed 225 pounds and still had the baby weight after having her second child three and a half years before. "I had to make a change," she said. "I always went after whatever I wanted and never let anything get in my way personally and professionally. Why not approach weight loss with the same 'Go-Getter' attitude?"

Alethea Wair After After

Alethea joined LA Weight Loss and lost 80 pounds in 11 months. She lost the first 35 pounds just from eating right, watching her sodium and calorie content, controlling portions, and eating lots of fruit and vegetables. She joined a gym in her neighborhood and calls herself "a total gym rat."

She never thought she could go from a size 16/18 to a size 4/6. "I feel great!" She's stuck to her goal weight of 155 pounds by doing regular cardio and weight workouts at the gym three to four times a week and eating fresh food and drinking lots of water.

"Everything in moderation!" is Alethea's advice.
