Alyssa and Lauren's Results and Weight-Loss Tips
Lauren Monk and Alyssa Cogdill are sisters and mothers, and they were both struggling with their weight. For Lauren, it was a lifelong issue. "I've been overweight since I was a kid," she told POPSUGAR. "I just loved food! I still love food!"
Alyssa's weight gain, on the other hand, had stemmed from three pregnancies, all of them within a four-year span. "I am so thankful for my three sweet boys," she said, but the succession of pregnancies created a cycle: Alyssa would gain weight with one pregnancy and didn't have enough time to lose it all before the next one.
Now, Alyssa weighs less than she did before kids, and Lauren's developed a relationship with food that allows her to eat what she loves in a healthy, balanced way. Alyssa lost 51 pounds and Lauren lost 78, combining for a total of 129 pounds down! And both of their journeys started with a clear moment of decision that became the determination they needed to go the distance.
