Shayda Soleymani is from California and previously weighed 240lbs. Shayda talks about how she had previously been on a ton of diets and at one point in time a doctor actually told her that, “it would take herculean efforts for you to ever lose weight and to maintain that weight loss”

Since then she has lost the weight, kept it off, and is even now been able to get off her diabetes and cholesterol medicine (which was much to her doctors surprise.

In talking about her life now she said, “I’m happy, i’m back to wearing light and bright colors, i’m back to being myself again. It’s just emotionally, mentally, physically, everything has changed. It’s just nice to be out of the dumps."

Here is my conversation with Shayda and I hope that you enjoy it.

This weeks guest is Katie Linkhart from Carencro Louisiana. She is a speech pathologist and at her heaviest was 338lbs. Katie and I talk about being teased as a child, her unhealthy relationship with food, and her amazing transformation that led her to lose 156lbs. 
 
One piece of advice that Katie had for others, which I loved was this. "Every day is a new day. Everyday that you do something towards your fitness or your health, whether its a good eating decision or taking a walk, that's one step closer to your goal. Don’t give up because you are stronger than what you think, and you are worth it."
 
One of Katie’s motivating factors in losing weight was that she and her husband wanted to start a family and that she knew her weight would be an issue. I am happy to say that since our interview Katie and her husband have announced that they are expecting twins! Congrats Katie on all of your hard work and on your pregnancy!
 
Here is my conversation with Katie and I hope that you enjoy it.
