Rachel Saintfort did not allow her weight to be a source of stress.

“In high school I hit 200 lbs., but I was blessed to be a confident person,” the Lakeland, Florida native says

However, her weight reached its highest, 291 lbs., after the birth of her daughter in 2007.

For the first time in her life, Saintfort decided to try dieting. But nothing stuck until January 2017. Then her daughter, now 10 years old, told her a classmate had called her “fat.”

“She looked so sad, and she’s trying to act like it wasn’t a big deal. At that moment it hit me that she’s suffering, and she’s being picked on or laughed at because of my laziness or my unhealthy choices,” Saintfort says. “That definitely inspired me to get it together, because I didn’t want her to feel that way.”

The case manager, 32, decided to cut out fast food and soda, and started walking every day around the lake in her town.

She started documenting her weight loss journey on her Instagram account, @Ms100Lbs, and set a goal to lose 100 pounds.

Less than 12 months later, she reached her goal. “I cried,” she says. “It was an amazing feeling.”
