Liana on What Motivated Her to Lose Weight
POPSUGAR: What made you embark on your weight-loss journey?
Liana Sims: I remember being made fun of for being the fat kid in school as early as third grade. From the third grade until the age of 20, I pretty much bore the shame of the external results of my addiction to food. One day I decided I wanted more from life. I wanted to change the trajectory of my life. I was afraid of being obese forever and the implications of that obesity. Obesity was both an internal and external prison and I wanted freedom more than anything else in the world. After an encounter with God on a mountain one day I decided to pursue that which seemed impossible to me. Over the course of four years, that one courageous decision resulted in losing 180 pounds.
