Jennifer’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I’ve always been unhappy with my weight, it just took me this long to do something about it!!
What made you decide to lose weight?
One day I put my little kids down for their quite time and was breathless to get up to my loft where my TV was.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
The eating was my hardest part to make my change! I was big on “snacking and movie or TV show before bed”. I also had to exercise everyday, but it was easy to keep up with it all since I lost the weight so quickly!
What was most challenging about losing weight?
Having a family that liked to snack! But we all eat well now!
How long did it take you to start to see results?
1 week to be honest, I lost 25 lbs in my first month! All I did was workout and eat properly! WOW!!
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?
I’m still losing, I’d still like to lose another 20 pounds and tone up more! But all I’m doing is eating properly, drinking my water, and working out every day!
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
I’ve become more eager to do things, my kids are happier because their mommy is active with time, I go out and hold my head up instead of hide behind things or people! I’m ready for summer this year!
