Woman loses 95 pounds, trains for marathons
If someone had asked Kelly Pless to describe herself three years ago, the word “fit” would have never crossed her mind.
For most of her adult life, the 31-year-old graduate student from Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, has struggled with her weight. She started gaining as a teenager and by the time she graduated from high school, she was carrying 215 pounds on her 5′ 2″ frame.
Prom, she says, was a nightmare.
“I had to go to three different stores to buy a dress,” Pless said. “I had to buy the biggest, also the ugliest, prom dress the store had because it was the only one that would fit.”
After high school, she lost 50 pounds. But because she hadn’t done it in a healthy way, her weight crept back up to 220 pounds.
At 28, she started having trouble breathing and doctors told her the weight was to blame. She reached her breaking point. More of this article here…
