Melissa Leto (known as @dermpafitmom on Instagram) hit her highest weight of 184 pounds in 2014, and she told POPSUGAR, "I felt completely hopeless." She decided she had to commit to herself to change. She shared, "I had been going down a downward spiral, and I felt nothing was in my control. My health was suffering. I was letting life go by and not enjoying my children aside from a few minutes a day." Melissa was also thinking about the future, wanting to make sure she'd be able to enjoy her grandkids someday. That's when her weight-loss journey began, and in two and a half years, she lost 52 pounds. Here's her inspiring story.
