Allison of How I Lost The Weight

Welcome to How I Lost The Weight. On HILTW I share my weight loss journey, my lifelong struggle with healthy weight maintenance, and how I finally won my battle with disordered eating.




As a woman in my forties I’ve spent decades learning about weight loss and wellness. That’s not a brag, however. The moments I’ve dedicated to anxiety over my weight equals a lot wasted time.




That’s why I created How I Lost The Weight. Obviously, I want to share how I lost weight, but I also want to inspire healthy, happy eating habits in other women.

Read about my weight loss journey.
