Manage episode 282264378 series 2828325
Maryann Liess, or better known, as Fifi di Foofi on our Fasting Highway Facebook page, lives close to the city of Frankfurt in Germany. In this episode Fifi talks about her journey into obesity after the sudden and very unexpected death of her beloved father. She began to focus on caring for her mother, who was suffering from dementia and her three teenage children. During these years, Maryann says she lost herself and become engulfed in the act of caregiving. Her weight went from normal to morbid obesity in a relatively short period of time.
After being confronted with several photos and home movies from the past, Maryann was reminded of a time that she was comfortable in her own skin and content with herself. She hadn't felt this way in 15 plus years. In fact, she was ashamed of what she had done to her body and who she had become. But through these old photos and movies, Maryann found the spark that ignited her motivation to at least try and return to a healthy weight. She has been doing alternate day fasting ever since. After only 10 months, Maryann has lost an amazing 57 kilograms or 125 pounds! For years, she believed that mid-life weight loss would be extremely difficult, especially for perimenopausal and menopausal women. Maryann is living proof that that notion is just a fallacy"".
