About Stephanie Wetzel
I've been overweight since I was around 7 or 8 years old. Growing up as an obese child always left me feeling like an outsider. I built up really strong walls to keep from getting hurt. I pretended that everything was OK, even though it was far from it. As I grew up, life became a constant battle to be six steps ahead of my weight. I didn't want people to notice that I had a hard time moving; that I didn't fit into chairs or booths; or that I couldn't bend in the middle. I chose to relocate from Indiana to North Carolina for college. I think more than anything I was running away to begin a new life. But the fat followed me (and multiplied). As an adult, I tried to become everything everybody else wanted me to be just to feel acceptance. I spent 12 years on an emotional roller coaster as I built a career in marketing and design. During that time, my self-confidence became tied up in the approval of everyone around me. I think the biggest hurdle I've faced on this journey is rediscovering who I am, and being confident in that person. And that brings me to here-Trading Pounds is an attempt to share the amazing gifts that I have been given throughout this process with others. Changing my life in every single way is how I am losing the weight, but losing this weight is changing my life in every single way. If I know one thing, it's that you can do this too. Won't you join me?
