Diane’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
After I got out of rehab for addiction and being alone because my boyfriend died from liver failure. I also needed to get rid of fluid from a bad liver.
What made you decide to lose weight?
I didn’t like myself. I had to ride my bike since I lost my license and it was tough. I started training at the gym where I live and I really liked it. I struggled with cardio for awhile though.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Working out regularly and changing my eating habits. I didn’t really diet, I just ate the right things.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
I put on muscle first and that put on weight, then I lost some and then it stayed steady for awhile.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
About 6 months or so.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
About a year. I did it by working out three days a week and eating healthy. I got rid of all my unnecessary medications
