How She Got Started
Adrienne told POPSUGAR she hit rock-bottom with her self-esteem about six years ago, and her health was at a serious risk. Her weight-loss journey was "touch and go since college," she said, because she tried a few fad diets but nothing stuck. "I didn't really know how to eat healthy, and I never set foot in a gym."
"At the lowest point, while getting way too much food for one person at a fast-food restaurant, I was asked 'What are you having?' and it took me about 30 seconds to realize the cashier thought I was pregnant," Adrienne said. "I did my best to laugh it off and not make her feel awkward while getting my food so I could just go home and be alone."
A couple months later, she started a Weight Watchers program at work. "I was out of excuses and tired of feeling so awful," Adrienne said. She started losing weight and changing her habits with Weight Watchers. "The meetings were great to get ideas for meals that fit the plan and getting my idea of the correct portion size under control," she said.
