Helen Ryan before and after weightloss

My weight loss story

When my kids were little I took them to Legoland. We climbed into a ride and the safety bar came down.

But it wouldn't close over my stomach. I was too fat.

The attendant was mortified, but I pleaded with my eyes for him to try again. I WAS going on the ride with my kids, size 20 or not. The young man put all his weight onto the bar and with a huge effort managed to close it over my tummy.

Humiliation 101.

Fast forward to a size 4 and 114 pounds. I’d lost almost 90 pounds naturally in just 10 months (while still eating chocolate).

I became a certified fitness pro, wrote some books, started a coached walk/podcast, and created a Facebook community so I can help others lose weight without deprivation.

(Want to know more about how I lost a lot of weight? I give you the scoop in this post.)
