Great success story! Read before and after fitness transformation stories from women and men who hit weight loss goals and got THAT BODY with training and meal prep. Find inspiration, motivation, and workout tips | Caryn   205In 2001 I decided that enough was enough when I weighed 334lbs. I had bariatric surgery to try to save my life. It was scary, but I had gained & lost 100+ lbs so many times, I didn’t have a choice. After the surgery I lost about 120lbs. I didn’t really work out, and ended up gaining 30 back. I stayed around 200lbs and thought that was it for me. I received a Wii Fit for Christmas one year and I LOVED it! I worked out every day! I did all kinds of work outs, when I hit a plateau, I would wear weights on my arms, or find something new to do on the Wii Fit. I did that for 3yrs!! I lost 40lbs! I had some personal traumas in my life and never let it derail my working out. I discovered healthy eating along with my work outs. I would incorporate EVERYTHING into an exercise! If I needed to pick something up, it was a squat or lunge, things like that! It just started falling off!! I still saw that fat girl in the mirror, though. I had to go to the store due to nothing fitting and I almost had a heart attack because I was a size 8! I bought the clothes, not even checking to see if they looked good…..lol I was running through the store crying (with the size 8 on)…I then started walking to work, walking to the store, walking to every place I could, I live on an island so it is possible! Saves me $$ on gas, too! I have lost 205lbs all together & I am now running 3.1-3.5miles a day on my treadmill first thing in the morning when I wake up, I am in a size 4!! I I wear 5lb weights on my upper arms. I have really bad issues with skin on my arms & thighs, though. I still can’t wear shorts or short sleeves, but I hope too one day! I am 45yrs old and I have the best Granddaughter in the entire world. My goal is to one day be able to take her to the beach or a pool. I never took my own children because I was too embarrassed for them and for me. But, I am happy to be healthy & have energy in SPADES! I am thankful for every day that I am given in this new body! Thank you!
