Loved it.
18 October 2013 | by d-bartlett0366See all my reviews

I guess I'm a little late for viewing this documentary. I just the other night found this little gem on Netflix. I gotta say, there were a couple times I was brought to tears. Not because it was sad, or that I'm a wimp but because some of the things said at that moment affected how I was feeling and it hit home. I have always been a tiny, well balanced frame of a person, right up until the day I quit smoking. I gained about 35 lbs in a very short space of time but that was OK because I expected some weight gain. I had successful surgery to reverse a tubal, got pregnant at 38 and from that moment on my life has been to say the least different. Some of the choices I've made haven't been so beneficial. I went from being 115 lbs on the day I quit smoking on January 14th, 2003 to 185 lbs to this date, October 18th, 2013. My daughter is now almost 9 years old and I literally have no excuses except I thought after having her, history would repeat itself and the pounds would drop off like they did when I had my sons while in my early 20's. I was terribly wrong. Then I thought, because my daughter walked at 9 1/2 months, chasing her active little mind and body around would help. Again, I was wrong. So now, at 47 yrs. old, approximately(to be healthy) 60 lbs overweight, I am at a loss for words on what to do about it. I'm embarrassed, scared, disgusted, out of control and unsure where the next step to help me is at. Until now. I found this movie to be so enlightening and hopefully life changing, I'm just sorry others haven't seen what I did. I don't think the point of the movie is about being a glorified infomercial, or a bunch of individuals telling their story and not being truthful, I think the movie is about people, like me, who struggled to find their way as well, discovered a better, healthier way to see the end of a long, hard road and they are passing on their knowledge and success in hopes of, again, people like me who will benefit from their knowledge. That's it. I walked away from this movie with a goal, and I can't wait to get started.
