Sometimes all it takes to change our lives is one moment of perfect understanding. Tracy had been bullied her entire life, from grade school to her thirties. She was morbidly obese, and the world didn't shy away from reminding her of that fact every chance it got. According to Tracy, she learned to numb herself to "all the mean things people would say." Words hurt so bad that she learned to shut them out, but that meant shutting out a lot of other things, too. It seemed like her days would never get better, until one day everything clicked.
Tracy realized that she was the only person with the power to change her life ... but she didn't quite know how. Instead of giving up, she consulted professionals. From fitness instructors to dieticians, Tracy began taking control of her life again. When she began her weight loss journey, Tracy weighed 345 pounds. Over the course of a year, she lost a total of 200 pounds and saved her life in the process. You see, it wasn't a matter of vanity for Tracy. She wasn't doing it to get the perfect beach body - she was doing it for her own health, happiness, and wellbeing.
Losing 200 pounds is no small feat, and this video offers a small glimpse into the struggles she overcame. Tracy's story is one that should inspire all of us to do better in each area of life. Most importantly, it should teach us that big changes like this don't happen without relying on those around us to aid and encourage us along the way.
