Cholanta's Weight Loss Story!


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

In January of 2003, I looked at myself in the mirror and for the first time I saw a fat person and I did not like the way I looked. I went on a crash diet and lost 130 pounds in 8 months. I worked out every day and cut my calorie intake way down while excluding carbs, bread and any fatty foods. After all the negative comments about how I was too small, I started to reintroduce foods that I had not eaten in 8 months. Over the next 9 years I looked up again and noticed that I had regained 90 pounds and I was not happy. My stomach was bigger than ever!

This time around I am exercising 5-6 days a week and cutting back on my calorie intake, however I have learned to still eat some carbs and bread in moderation. I have also learned to eat not only less calories but to include lots of fruits and vegetables. Sweets and sodas have never been an issue for me and I don't tend to need to snack. I drink at least a half gallon of water daily. Once I get to my goal weight I will still exercise weekly and continue to eat healthy. This time I'm doing this for me and keeping it off no matter what anybody has to say about it!
