Priyanka’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
When I saw my picture.
What made you decide to lose weight?
It started the day when I saw my pictures and it made me realize that I have to do something.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
I joined a nearby gym (Fitness First) and started doing weights and cardio sessions. I tried different classes to add spice to my workout and when I got bored I switched to power walking and swimming. I changed my diet to a more healthy one. I avoided oily food, junk food and sugary drinks. I added protein, carbs, salad (fiber) and fruits (sweet) and I started losing weight.

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