“You’re only as sick as your secrets.” And Heather Goodwin isn’t holding anything back on her journey from 436 pounds on a 5’2” frame to losing 303 of those lbs at the time of this interview. Heather calls it The Butterfly Effect where’s she’s gone from a fat and furry worm who ate everything in sight to a beautiful butterfly. She even had to cocoon herself for awhile to finally find her way. You will be impressed by her honesty, but most especially about her journey back to health staving off high cholesterol, sleep apnea, food addiction, bad acne, joint paint and inflammation, and morbid obesity…all with a beautiful smile and great attitude. Now she’s helping others find their way. Come listen to this amazing story of courage and strength!
Heather Goodwin is fond of saying that she was born at her ideal weight, and that was the last time she ever saw it.
In her teens her weight was in the hundreds; in her twenties, the two-hundreds; in her thirties, the three-hundreds, and in her forties – well, you can see where this is going. A few years ago, Heather topped out at 436 pounds on her 5’2″ frame. As she put it, she was rounder than she was tall.
Heather could also see what her destiny would be if she didn’t find a real solution, and she didn’t want to experience a 500-pound body in her fifties. So she said goodbye to all the diets and pills and fads she had tried in the past, and adopted a strict whole food, plant-based diet. And this time…it’s working.
