HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?
I was miserable in my own skin. My clothes wouldn’t fit and I did NOT want to buy bigger clothes. I was following a friend on Instagram who was doing the Whole 30. After a lot of fighting internally with myself, I decided to go for it and haven’t stopped yet.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?
I saw results within the first week. I took weekly pictures and it was a big difference.
WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?
DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING?
I actually never had the thought of giving up. I felt so great from eating clean foods and seeing the results really motivated me.
DID YOU HIT ANY WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAUS? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO LOSE MOST OF THE WEIGHT?
I’m still on this journey but to where I am now it took less than 6 months.
DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES?
All kinds! Better complexion no achy joints and bones, more energy etc.
WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
I workout every Monday – Friday mornings. Before you couldn’t get me to take a walk around the block.
