Elizabeth Palmer Admits Being Depressed Over Her Increasing Body Weight

Elizabeth was born into a family who followed extremely healthy eating habits. But despite feeding on green veggies and healthy meals, the once average weighted Elizabeth, who never had to care about weight loss, fell into the hole of junk food during her middle school days.

The result of her unhealthy eating habits showed its outcome later in the years. Back in 2010 due to her increasing body weight, she suffered from slight depression as no matter how much she tried her weight loss goals failed.
