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 | How I lost 35 lbs in 4.5 monthsI never had weight problem until I got pregnant with my first daughter. I was 112 lbs before I got pregnant and in just 9 months I went to 152 Lbs. By the way I am only 5 feet 2 inches tall. I came down to around 136Lbs or so and stayed there for almost 4 yrs. When I got pregnant for the second time I went to 174 Lbs. When my mom saw me she was in total shock. She could not believe her own eyes. I felt I was looking like a baby elephant.

Funny part is that even though I gained so much, both of my daughters were tiny. Elder one was 5.11 Lbs and yonger one was 5.4 Lbs. After my second daughter I came down to 154.6 Lbs. This time I decided to loose this weight. I had a realistic goal that I want to be 120 Lbs in next 5 months.

On May 7th, 2009 I started walking. In the beginning it was just 3 miles then I increased it to 5 miles and then 7-8 miles EVERY DAY. I used to walk without eating anything in the morning so that I would burn my stored fat. I am assuming that I was burning 600-700 calories per day by walking. I checked my weight everyday and I still do that. I ate everything . Rice , sweets etc but in controlled portions. I controlled my calories intake. I was taking 1400 calories per day that included rice or roti (indian home made bread) , one cup milk, one banana (which I love a lot in fruits), vegetables and some times one egg. I do not eat meat, frozen foods. And another plus factor that I was breast feeding. That is another 300 Calories. I personally think that walking with EMPTY STOMACH, in the morning, is the reason that I could loose weight so easily. I walked alone with my daughters in stroller as I could not find anyone for company. Now I am 120 Lbs. I reached my goal in mid Sept 2009. I have not gained weight since then. Although it is just one and a half months but I think I will be able to keep this weight.  I will keep you posted.

AND yes I feel Fabulous. I want to loose another 5 lbs so that I will be having some cushion incase I overeat some day.

Happy weight loss.
