Little steps lead to great changes: my struggle with weight

Elvira Sánchez is working toward a goal. She’s been overweight since childhood, but the challenges that go with obesity change with age. “I reached the conclusion that I had to change my way of thinking in order to be able to lose the weight. I understood that no matter how many diets or how many hours of exercise I did each day, if I don’t rethink my way of eating nothing I do will matter.” Her story is on Boyle Heights Beat.
