The article presents commentary from Stacie Burcham of Alabama on how she lost 126 pounds. She began going to a gym and working out with a personal trainer after her weight ballooned to 276 pounds. She found it more useful to use a tape measure rather than a scale to track her progress. Every week she made out her gym schedule beforehand and stuck to it.
