How I Did It

My Name is Tatyana Hristova. I am 34-years old. I'm originally from Bulgaria, a small country in Eastern Europe. I am currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Tatyana Hristova's Progress.

I started dreaming about coming to America after seeing many movies about the life here and I wanted to have a little part of the "American dream" for myself. I came to the United States as an ESL student, even though English is my third language (Bulgarian and Russian are the other two).

I Wanted To Have A Part
Of The American Dream.

To me the most important part of the American dream is that everyone has the opportunity to receive a quality education. To do this, I needed money and a lot of hard work.

When I moved to Utah I met people that were also from Bulgaria whom I thought were friends, but they were the wrong kind of friends. They were not helping me grow; instead they were bringing me down. I become home sick and overwhelmed by everything in my life.

Just as many other people do, when I had problems I tried to escape them by eating a lot food. I found that here in America there are a lot of foods from all over the word and I started to succumb to all the new temptations. I began to gain a lot of weight and before I knew it I was a 200-pound woman, but my biggest concern was my heart.

I was born with a cosmetic heart defect called WPW, which was first diagnosed by doctors when I lived in St. Petersburg, Russia. Almost every night I would wake up with heart spasms so my pain became a double heartache, both mental and physical.

Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) is a syndrome of pre-excitation of the ventricles of the heart due to an accessory pathway known as the bundle of Kent. This accessory pathway is an abnormal electrical communication from the atria to the ventricles.

My heart was literally in physical pain with spasms and I was in mental anguish with heartache every time I saw myself in the mirror. The turning point came for me when my mother said that I looked like a pig.


The only supplement I am taking is Glutamine. I am very careful because of my WPW syndrome.

Suggestions For Others

The only suggestion I can think is a Bible verse: Stick to a task, till it sticks to you. Beginners are many. Finishers are few.
