WHEN DID YOU START DEVELOPING A WEIGHT PROBLEM?

I was obese my entire life, but my weight significantly increased after I moved away to university.

HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
It affected my confidence. I was generally a very social person, but my weight was always a burden in the back of my mind.

WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?
I was lucky enough as a child to be surrounded by very supportive and loving people. I was never bullied because of my weight or ostracized by loved ones. My turning point occurred on January 4, 2016, when I realized my health was in great danger. I somehow stumbled upon an online article detailing symptoms associated with diabetes. To my horror, I shared many (if not all) of the symptoms.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I just got up one day and signed up for a gym membership. I started going daily and counting calories. As time went on, more weight came off!

HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?
I saw results on the scale immediately but I did not see results in my body until I lost around 40lbs. So about 2.5-3 months.

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?
I am a full-time student who works. My biggest challenge was time management.

DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING?
Results kept me going. I was motivated by the scale but also the improvements I saw in my health. i.e. after three months I took a blood pressure test that revealed I had reversed my once severely high blood pressure.

DID YOU HIT ANY WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAUS? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
I haven’t hit any plateaus. I might hit one in the future, but if I do, I plan on just pushing through it.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO LOSE MOST OF THE WEIGHT?
It took me 6 months to lose 100lbs and it will probably take another 6 to lose the remaining 50lbs.

DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES?
Many – most revolved health but going from a 3x to a size medium was definitely a big one.

WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
I switched from a vegetarian diet to a vegan diet.

HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
I am much more active.

MY WEIGHT LOSS TIPS & TRICKS

  1. Counting calories is a great learning strategy but don’t starve yourself to hit your calorie goal.
  2. Work out in the mornings. It helps get your metabolism going and it ensures you won’t skip the gym after a long day at work or school.
  3. Drink a lot of water and eat lots of fruits and vegetables.
  4. Find an exercise routine that works for you. If you enjoy exercising, you won’t give up.
  5. Don’t deprive yourself of the foods you love. You will end up binging.
