Lori's Weight Loss!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I've been overweight since the age of 10 so I have been unhappy
with my weight for most of my life.
What made you decide to lose weight?
I went to a doctors appointment and I was over 300 pounds. The
heaviest I had ever been was 270 so I was shocked!
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
I began making better food choices, drinking water, and exercising
daily. I also began writing
down EVERYTHING that went into my mouth.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
I had a hard time keeping a positive attitude during the weeks
that the scale didn't show a loss.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
2 years and 2 months.
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do
I am not at my goal weight of 160, yet.
How has your life changed now that you've lost weight?
I recently got married to the man of my dreams. I would not have
married him before because I didn't love myself and could not
love him, either.
How did ShapeFit help you reach your weight loss goals?
ShapeFit keeps me informed with all the articles about healthy
eating and exercise. I love how ShapeFit has explained the importance
of weight training DURING weight loss. So many people believe
they should wait until they have lost all of the weight to "tone
up" but ShapeFit explains differently.
