Around 21 years old, I developed bad habits such as eating and binging on junk food late at night, never exercising and zero motivation to be active.
HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
No self confidence and not liking the way I looked.
WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?
Not feeling like myself, I wanted to be like the old me. Fit and full of confidence. One day I woke up and realized I was never going to change the way I looked if I never try to change.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
Pushing myself to the limit and a lot of self control to control my eating habits.

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?
Cutting down on soda and junk food, and replacing it all with healthy food.
DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING?
Seeing results kept me going and not wanting to ever give up. It really is true when they say “once you see results it becomes an addiction”
