I GOT TIRED OF BEING FAT AND GOT IN SHAPE

NAME : Mo / BEFORE WEIGHT : 176 / AFTER WEIGHT : 105 / POUNDS LOST : 70

I never had a weight problem til after I had my kids.

HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?  I did not feel confident, I had to take strategic pictures to post on facebook, I could not breathe well while sitting. I could not do any exercise without feeling out of breath.

WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?  When I went to get a swimming suit for our 10 year anniversary, I looked and felt miserable. I realized I needed a change.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?  I looked at before and after pictures of women who had done this before, and came across some amazing photos and decided that if they could do it so could I.

HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?  In the first week I lost 5 lbs and 11 in the first 2 weeks!! I was so motivated!!!!

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?  the first two weeks of not eating bread and sugar and junk were the hardest.

DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING?  NEVER! I honestly was so tired of where I was that I never felt like giving up! I wanted to lose weight the healthy way more than I wanted anything else at that point in my life. What kept me going was my goal. My desire to feel and look better!

DID YOU HIT ANY WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAUS? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?  I actually did not have a plateau. Once I changed my eating the weight kept falling off.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO LOSE MOST OF THE WEIGHT?  I lost 55 lbs in almost 6 months

WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?  at the time I ate whole unprocessed foods and lots of veggies and fruits, and lean proteins. that was completely different than the fried foods that I was eating.

HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?  not even compares!! haha. I was a couch potato. Now I go to the gym everyday.
