The story of people struggling to lose weight and then achieving that goal, is a well told tale: in books, on television, online. But it's the next chapter of that story that Andie Mitchell wants to tell you about. At age 20, Andie weighed 122 kilos, and she knew she had to do something. She did. She dieted, she lost half her body weight. But Andie says the part no one ever tells you about - is what happens after you shed the kilos.
