Weight loss is a common new year resolution. If making the pledge has proven easier than achieving it, a Collin County woman’s weight loss journey might serve up some inspiration. For Penny Leaver, looking back at photos of some of the more memorable moments of her life makes her cringe. “I hate the way I look and it makes me remember how horrible I felt also,” Leaver said. The 43-year-old says she began gaining weight in college then started working nights. “I just started picking up some really unhealthy habits I would eat right before I went to bed, we would eat whatever food because it was fast, it was whatever was open at that time,” Leaver recalled. At her heaviest, she says she weighed 350 pounds. It took a serious health scare for her to get serious about getting healthy.
