Meet Val McLeod
Val McLeod has been through her share of pain from public distain. Once tipping the scales at over 600 pounds, while attending a conference she slipped and fell in a hotel lobby. Rude, condescending and crude jokes made by fire rescue workers humiliated Val so badly that she was too embarrassed to get on the stretcher and instead, chose to [with a broken ankle] walk to the ambulance and into the Emergency Room. Through hard work and struggle, Val got rid of more than half her body size, a near impossible feat, and now devotes her life to encouraging others to transform their lives.
