About five years ago, Brooke Birmingham felt horrible about herself. She weighed 327 pounds and says she had just come out of a dreadful relationship.

In February 2009, the Andalusia woman joined the Weight Watchers meeting her mother had attended. That meeting was the beginning of a new chapter in Brooke's life.

She got serious about exercise, started to make healthier eating choices, and with lots of hard work and dedication,  lost 172 pounds.  It took her more than four years to reach that goal.

Her success story has gained national attention. Brooke is the cover girl on the January issue of Woman's Day Magazine. The magazine also features an article about her amazing weight loss.

Birmingham used to wear size twenty two jeans. Now, her clothing style has completely changed. She loves dresses, skirts, and says shopping is a joy.

She has a web site: www.brookenotonadiet.com.

She encourages other people to get serious about exercise and healthy eating.  

Birmingham says there are days she does not look forward to working out or eating a healthy breakfast. She feels better, however, when she does exercise and make wise food choices.

Nice to be a cover girl? Brooke says you bet. It's awesome!
