Shelli Johnson Weight Loss Before After Transformation

For decades, I was a yo-yo dieter with an eating disorder — weighing over 300 pounds at my heaviest. Then about ten years ago I’d had enough.

Enough with diets and food rules that were making me feel crazed. Enough of losing weight only to gain it back. And enough of the shame that came along with what I perceived as a personal failure to keep the weight off.

Since then, I have shed over 160 pounds and maintained that weight loss for more than seven years.

  • I no longer have a raging eating disorder.
  • I’ve had no bariatric surgery.
  • I don’t live in fear that the weight is going to come back and I won’t know what to do about it.
  • I don’t live in confusion and desperation and frustration and panic and humiliation and shame.
  • Food is no longer the focus of my life.
  • I got free.

Your life can be that way too.

Let me show you how.


Let 2020 be the year you make peace with your body and with food.

  1. Thank you for sharing your story. We met at a mutual friend’s home in Lake Wylie and I had no idea of your struggle. This subject certainly touches many people.

    1. Hi Kelly!

      I remember you. Thank you for your kind words. I rarely talked about my struggles with weight, so it doesn’t surprise me that you didn’t know. I truly hope the book helps others struggling with weight loss and abusing food.
