- About: I began struggling with weight issues in the 3rd grade. I did well in the 4th and 5th grade when my mom and everyone started aerobics then in the 5th grade I had to wear a back brace. I was 5'4" wearing adult clothes and shoes and while being a healthy weight, 120 pounds, I didn't feel thin. I didn't fit into cute preteen clothes and shoes. In the 6th grade I had back surgery. No aerobics, no sports and I gained weight. At 17 years and 5'6" I weighted almost 200 pounds and the story begins with yo-yo diets. By the time I was 34, I weighed in at 306 pounds and my height dropped to 5'4". Then in 2007 after some success with weight loss I almost died from the medications that were helping me lose the weight. And here I am, 45 years old, 5'4" and 259 pounds. I choose the screen name Dori150 because my goal weight is 150. I weighed 150 when I was 14 and I looked and felt my best at that time in my life.
- Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: My best friend watches food documentaries and is very health food conscience. Because of her I was exploring documentaries about food production and stumbled upon Fat, Sick and almost Dead on Netflix. I watched it twice. I was inspired and moved to tears. Then I googled the movie and found RebootwithJoe. I think this is the answer to my weight loss challenges. I believe this is a lifestyle I can adopt. I have a 10 year old son, so I was really excited to see the section about how to include children in this lifestyle change.
- Favorite Juice? I don't have one yet.
