Imran’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
A few years ago, it just took a long time for me to get started.
What made you decide to lose weight?
Better looks and healthier lifestyle.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Diet, exercise and my attitude towards life.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
Nothing really, since I had my mind made up to lose weight.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
A couple of weeks.
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 3 months now and still working on getting in better shape by working out on regular basis, and following a certain diet that excludes anything that’s greasy or unhealthy. I try to eat food that is essential for the body to work properly, basically NO JUNK FOOD what so ever.
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
Hard to put it in words, but I am a lot more active, a lot more informative, a lot more confident, a lot more outgoing and a lot more excited about life. Exercise keeps the stress away and that makes everything better.
How did ShapeFit help you reach your weight loss goals?
I did not know of ShapeFit until recently, but am a regular visitor now. The weight loss success stories on ShapeFit.com are very inspiring, it feels great to see other people get in shape just like I did.
