Debbi's Weight Loss Story!


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

I've always been unhappy with my weight. I've yo-yo dieted for 30 years. I've gained and lost the same amount of pounds about 5 times, each time gaining more and more.

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

I live on the second floor and work on the second floor. It was getting harder to climb the stairs. My heart was pounding. It scared me. If I can't get into my own home, what would I do? My daughter had just lost weight doing a low carb and high protein diet. She encouraged me to try it. I thought "okay, one more time!" To my surprise, the weight fell off.

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

I quit eating anything white. No more bread, pasta, potatoes or rice. I found that I must have had a gluten allergy. I had to find a new way of eating, and to make food NOT the main focus of my life.

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

The AMOUNT of weight that I had to lose was overwhelming. I knew it would take me over a year to lose it. That made me sad. But the very most challenging thing is maintenance. This is the really hard part! The challenge of not gaining it all back again.

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

I saw results the first week. Once my body got used to not getting its sugar fix, the bloat was gone. A big surprise was the congestion disappeared too. And the hot flashes were gone! Who knew that menopause symptoms were aggravated by carbs!

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

I changed my goal weight several times. I didn't know what weight would look best and feel right. I've been morbidly obese for so many years. Ultimately, it took me 15 months to lose 135 pounds. I'm happy with my weight now. I've never said that before!

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

I've been on maintenance for 3 months so far. I've challenged myself with a fitness goal now. I signed up for fitness boot camp and I started running.

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

I've been running 5K's. At 55 years old, I'm in the best shape of my life. Adult on-set athletics! I feel so much better.

weight loss success stories How did ShapeFit help you reach your weight loss goals?

I use ShapeFit's FitTracker fitness tracking program to measure my workouts.

Debbi's Weight Loss Workouts!


weight loss success stories Weight Training
:

No real weight training until I met my goal. I used 5 pound hand weights and lifted while I walked.

weight loss success stories Cardiovascular:

I just walked. I started slow and built it up as it got easier. When I could walk 4 mph for 10 miles, I started running. I'm building that up now. I can run for 2 miles without stopping so far!
