To El, dieting wasn’t a priority prior to her recent go at it. While she was quite successful in her professional life, she wasn’t too lucky when it came to shedding unwanted pounds. “I gained weight after college and like most women, I dieted all the time. But I wasn’t serious about it. I would start, I would get busy, fall off of it and move on. So the little bit of weight I would lose would come back on,” explains Pam.
