Tiffany's Weight Loss Story!


weight loss success stories When did you become unhappy with your weight?

July, 1999.

weight loss success stories What made you decide to lose weight?

We had taken a family vacation to the beach, and when I came home and looked at the pictures, I was horrified! I couldn't believe how much weight I had gained, and that I didn't even realized it. I didn't want to be just another fat mom!

weight loss success stories What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?

I had to START exercising, and totally change the way I ate. With 3 small children we had lots of chicken nuggets, pizza and french fries. We all learned to cut out the junk food and eat healthy.

weight loss success stories What was most challenging about losing weight?

I got addicted to the exercise really quick, but the eating part was much harder. I often felt frustrated at not seeing the results I wanted as fast as I wanted them, and would want to just forget the whole thing!

weight loss success stories How long did it take you to start to see results?

After 6 months I felt better and my clothes fit differently, the weight started to really come off after about 8 months.

weight loss success stories How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?

14 months.

weight loss success stories How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?

I have maintained my current weight for 5 years! I workout 6 days a week and eat clean.

weight loss success stories How has your life changed now that you've lost weight?

How has my life NOT changed should be the question! I am a completely different person now. I am so much happier, and so much more confident in myself. I am more adventurous and I find that I do things that before I never would have attempted! I completed my first Olympic distance triathlon after losing weight. I became certified as a Group Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer so that I can share my passion for fitness and healthy living with others, and help them reach their goals!

Tiffany's Weight Loss Tips!


weight loss success stories Weight loss tip #1
:

weight loss before after photosKnow what your weaknesses are when it comes to food, and DON'T keep those things in your house. If it's not there, you can't eat it!

weight loss success stories Weight loss tip #2:

Eat BEFORE you get hungry. I try to eat a small meal or snack every 2 hours throughout the day. When I let myself get really hungry, that's when I find myself eating junk.

weight loss success stories Weight loss tip #3:

Have a plan when you go out to eat. Think about what you will order ahead of time, and don't let yourself be tempted by the high calorie, high fat items on the menu. Many restaurants now have their nutrition information posted online. I am much less likely to eat something if I know how fattening it really is!

weight loss success stories Weight loss tip #4:

Have one "cheat" day a week for eating. If you know you can have a hamburger and ice cream on Saturday, it makes it easier to eat well the rest of the week.

weight loss success stories Weight loss tip #5:

Be sensible when it comes to portion size. Even healthy foods become fattening when you eat too much of them!
