Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I had my first son. I couldn't do the basic things that I used to be able to do
What made you decide to lose weight?
I was trying
to get back down to a healthy weight so that I didn't develop any heath problems.
I could feel myself getting strained.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Working out was number 1. I started going to Curves. That 30 min. work out
place. It was hard, but I did that for three months. Then I started my diet. Then
I started working out harder at a local YMCA. Always changing it up in my routine
so I wouldn't plateau.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
focused! I was on the diet, not my family. So I had to find ways to eat separately
and find time away to work out.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
took about two months before I noticed any change. And it wasn't pounds or inches,
it was how I felt.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
A year and two months.
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
I've maintained it for almost three months now... I still have five pounds
to go though. I just balance the amount of calories I take in to the amount of
calories that I burn.
How has your life changed now that you've lost weight?
I have better sex now! It has made my husband and I very happy!
