Dustin’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
Most of my life.
What made you decide to lose weight?
After seeing pictures from my wedding and not liking any of the pictures that I’m in. It was embarrassing for anyone to see them.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
I started experimenting with a diet that worked for me, which was a little difficult since I’m a picky eater and don’t like salad. Following that, I joined a local gym close to my house. Trying it at home would not work for me since I’ve tried that several times.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
How long did it take you to start to see results?
1 week before I noticed the scale change.
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?
6 months and I diet all week long so that I can splurge some over the weekend.
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
I have my own adult softball team and I’m always working out and going places.
How did ShapeFit help you reach your weight loss goals?
ShapeFit helped with research to find the info I was seeking.
