Discovering Happiness through a Healthy Lifestyle Transition
By Kirsten A. Womack

I have spent the majority of my adult life trying to lose weight. I used to be a serial dieter, trying many popular diets and some extreme eating—or rather, not eating—tactics. I was the very picture of a yo-yo dieter. I jumped on all of the latest diet plans for years. I lost, gained, and plateaued repeatedly. I did this without thinking of the health effects on my body.
