Diet Secrets of a Former Fat Girl
A Step In the Light Direction
After her "mint chocolate moment," Delaney spoke with a friend who was in a similar place in her life. Delaney's pal convinced her to put her best foot forward and enroll in a Jazzercise class. Putting fitness first was a winning strategy for Delaney. In fact, it's one of the major philosophies she endorses.
"Start with fitness and really create a fitness habit," she recommends. "That's the hardest thing. Making healthy eating choices is a logical thing. It's easier to manipulate your diet than to start exercising. It's a matter of taking butter out versus throwing clothes on to go to the gym. Establishing a fitness routine is key.
"You start yourself off in a positive mode. You learn you can do things that you never thought you could do. You feel good getting up to go the gym. It doesn't matter what you do or how many calories you burn. It's the fact that you go and do it. That's a mini-success. It's going to give you positive feelings about yourself, which is going to help you do better on your diet."

Today, Delaney maintains a healthy weight of 115 pounds and slips into a slender size 2. She's proof that with the proper tools, it's possible to lose weight and keep it off. But it takes more than a meal plan and an exercise regimen, she says.
"Changing your self image is the key to losing weight. If it was a simple equation of fewer calories in and more calories out, why couldn't we all do it? It's the way you see yourself and how other people see you and how you cope that keeps you losing weight."
