Stephanie’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I became unhappy after seeing photos of myself with my kids and having back problems.
What made you decide to lose weight?
I couldn’t keep up with my kids and couldn’t ever find clothes that were flattering. I got so big nothing could make me look better than I did. I lived in sweats. I saw the 17 day diet book on a show and bought it. I lost 25 pounds in 3 weeks then joined a gym.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Cut out most fast food, sweets and regular soda.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
Eating out and packing lunches for work.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
I noticed results in 2 weeks, and then even more results in about a month.
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?
9 months. I maintain by watching carbs and regular soda.
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
I can shop anywhere. I’m energetic, my back doesn’t hurt and my marriage improved.
