Rosemary’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
When my size 24 jeans became too tight and nothing looked good on me.
What made you decide to lose weight?
I grew tired of feeling heavy, miserable, and invisible.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Cutting out the mindless eating and really revving up the cardio.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
Keeping the goal of being thinner in sight. It’s easy to become complacent.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
I saw results in the first month.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
I lost 60 pounds in four months. I had previously lost over 20 pounds.
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
I am still in the process of losing. I am about 10 pounds from my goal weight.
What keeps you motivated to continue your weight loss success?
Fitting into my new clothes! Also, I have received a lot of positive feedback from friends, which is encouraging.
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
I no longer feel as invisible to others. I don’t have to squeeze into chairs. Clothes shopping is no longer a depressing experience. I feel healthier and can push myself harder in exercise classes.
Do you have any advice for others who are trying to lose weight?
Losing weight is a process. Keep your goal in mind and take it one day at a time. If you consistently take in fewer calories than you burn off, you will lose weight. Exercise, exercise, exercise.
How did ShapeFit help you reach your weight loss goals?
Reading the weight loss stories of others who have struggled with, and achieved, weight loss was very motivating.
