Karen Schulte lose more than 60 pounds

Karen Schulte had problems with her weight since first grade. But two years ago at the age of 40 and with weight of 217 pounds, she decided she had to do something about her weight. Now she is down to 154 pounds and is aiming to bring her weight down to 150 pounds.

How Karen was able to lose these pounds? She started her exercise program with a personal fitness trainer at Fitness Etcetera in West Roxbury, Mass. As Karen started losing weight, her trainer kept her motivated to go for a healthy diet. She just followed her physical trainer advices and started maintaining a food diary.

After losing a lot of pounds, she applied to Weight Watchers to be one of the inspiring stories of 2007. She did not get success in it but she was able to won a gift card of $100 that she had to spend on her clothes. Karen dropped from size 22 to size 10. She was even able to drop her shoes size from 91/2 to 81/2.

"It literally changed my life, my whole lifestyle. It's not about how much you eat or what you eat, it's about how your life and approach to food impacts your life," said Schulte, who works as a registered nurse at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
