Real Weight Loss Success Stories: Audrey Lost 150 Pounds In A Year And Inspired Thousands Of Women
My name is Audrey Johns and I would like to share my remarkable weight loss story with you.
I have been heavy my entire life, at my largest I was 275 lbs and a size 20. I hated how I looked and how I felt. I have tried every diet out there, South Beach, Weight Watchers, Atkins, sugar free, fat free, calorie counting, you name it I’ve tried it. Sometimes I would lose a little weight, but inevitably something happened, I gave up and gained it back plus more.
In 2011 I had enough of being fat, I hated that I was always the fattest person in the room. I started reading every blog, book and website about losing weight and found some information and a cookbook that highlighted clean eating. I started cooking 3 meals a day and enjoyed the ritual of cooking and taking better care of myself, but most of all I enjoyed the food. I started with a simple toast with almond butter and bananas for breakfast to now a bowl of chic slow cooked steel cut oatmeal with nuts and fruits soaked in almond butter. I taught myself to cook and with that how to lose weight.
I found that when I stopped eating all processed foods, anything with chemicals, preservatives and artificial sweeteners, and increased my water intake the weight just started to fall off! I had been struggling to lose weight eating frozen “diet” meals and diet sodas all day every day, eating under 1000 calories all along starving and gaining weight. Now I was eating real food every day and drinking lots of water. My calorie count went up to 1200-1400 and the weight flew off and has stayed off.
One year later I was 150 lbs lighter! I am now 120 lbs and a size 4, I look and feel amazing.
So many of my friends asked about my weight loss that I finally started my blog LOSE WEIGHT BY EATING on New Years Day 2012 to answer their questions. I hope to give back to people out there like me who have been searching for the right weight loss information.
I want to tell people that a diet that leaves you feeling deprived is not a diet you be a part of because feeling deprived for the rest of your life is not a reasonable way to eat. I started by sharing my recipes, and in one year I had over 3 million readers!
I started a LOSE WEIGHT BY EATING Facebook page and with over 17,000 followers we have lost over 6000 lbs in the first 7 months of 2013!
In summer 2013 I released my first book FRUIT INFUSION: A Collection of Day Spa Inspired, BOOSTING drinks, sodas, teas and ice cubes. Within 24 hours it was already on a best seller list on Amazon!
I now star in professional cooking videos for eHow.com (the largest “How To” website in the world!) and for Livestrong.com and am in talks with producers at ABC for something MUCH BIGGER!
To see my cooking videos go to eHow.com and in the search bar type “Audrey Johns.”
I have inspired millions to lose weight, and my numbers keep growing with almost 5 MILLION readers now! I have kept the weight off and helped my followers shed over 6000 lbs this year so far!
