Teddi shared, “I remember having to step on the scales at the doctor…And the tears when the doctor would say, Teddi, you are 5’3 and over 200 pounds. That version of myself would do fad diets, lose a bunch of weight and gain it all back again. Four years, I have been ALL IN, no yo-yo. And even when I do get a little wild…I have the tools to reel it back in rather than letting myself unravel for a week’s worth of choices that don’t work for me.”
