Ms. Melodie Perdue from Franklin, Massachusetts, of the United States, was a 34-year-old fitness coach from OPTAVIA and was once a 308 pounds woman who aspired to be fit. She believes being born fat means she cannot be fit anymore, even in adulthood.

When she was a kid, her emotional relationship with food started since she was not raised fully by her mother. She associated food with happiness and believed that food would never leave her, unlike her mother.   

 “Do Not Waste Food” is the idea impounded to her little mind and would always lead her to eat all the food served even though she eats adult-sized portions instead of child-sized portions, followed by dessert. She would sneak and eat about 6 to 8 Hershey chocolate bars a day, not even including the junk foods, baked macaroni, and cheese with the fried chicken she was having.   

The first time Melodie Perdue tried dieting was when she was ten. She struggled with weight and has tried several other diet programs throughout middle school, high school, and beyond that period.

Melodie was always leading to a failure because she could not strictly follow the program. She would lose about 20 to 30 pounds and eventually return to her bad eating habits.
