Sarah's Journey Begins
At a doctor's appointment nine months after giving birth to her daughter, Sarah found out that not only had she gained more weight since the delivery and that the hypertension she struggled with all throughout pregnancy had gotten worse, but that her blood sugar was also in the impaired range, putting her at serious risk for type 2 diabetes.
By that time she weighed 116 kilos. "I wish I had more pictures of that time to look back on, but by then I was completely avoiding cameras and mirrors," Sarah said. She knew her habits were putting her health at risk and that something needed to change. So in 2012, she set a New Year's resolution to lose 18 kilos.
