70 lbs. Lost and Counting – Real Stories Heads to Hockeytown
After an amazing RUN in Seattle, Real Stories is going to Detroit, Michigan to follow Lori Stratford, and her life changing goal of losing a total of 170 pounds. Lori lost an impressive 70 pounds so far, leaving her with 100 pounds more in order to reach her goal.
In the last segment of Real Stories, Katie and Justin had a goal to do something they never thought was possible—run in a half marathon. It was important to them that they ran the entire time—not stopping to take a break or slow to a walk—and cross the finish line. They accomplished their goal and so much more during their journey.
Lori approaches her weight loss goal of losing 170 pounds the same way. Her goal is quite literally a marathon of weight loss; it takes patience, determination and a steady pace over a long period of time. She is not putting a specific timeline on reaching her final weight loss goal; instead she is focusing on the process.
She is in it for the long haul, and so Real Stories is too. We are following Lori during her entire journey as she works to lose the final 100 pounds. Look for updates and be sure to lend your words of support, and stories of your own in the comments section.

Katie’s and Justin’s perpetual smiles and positive energy are sure to keep brightening-up even the rainiest Seattle days as we head to Michigan. Real Stories will catch up with them down the road to give you updates about their progress; until then enjoy their final segment’s photoblog below.
