I’m Alison! I’ve been overweight since I was a baby and the doctor told my mother she had to switch me to skim milk because I was gaining weight too quickly. At just 5’1″, I eventually tipped the scales at 353.4 pounds. This blog is a tool for me to reclaim ownership of my life, stop defining myself by the limits imposed upon me due to my size, and become an AFTER.

On March 31, 2015, I reached the 100-pounds lost milestone! Read about my reaction and major tips and tricks here.

In addition to losing weight, I get really pumped up about cooking super awesome food, expensive makeup, Mad Men (I’d like to be Joan, but I’m pretty sure I’m a cross between Betty and Peggy), and cats. Oh, and my ridiculously handsome and clever husband.
