Kelly A. - Lost 111.4 lb.
I had to learn to be real with myself. I lived with the disillusion that I didn’t look like I weighed over 300 pounds, but guess what? Pictures don’t lie. It takes work to be that overweight. Not only is it hard on your body, but it is hard on you mentally as well. Physically, I had high blood pressure, hip pain and I was achy all the time. Mentally, I didn’t like going out in public and was worried about fitting into chairs or booths and I sweated a lot.
I don’t have a secret for my weight loss, it just boiled down to eating less calories and moving more. I pay attention to my protein, fat and carbs and I love weight lifting. Now, I find myself wanting healthier food choices. I want my calories to work for me!
When you have a significant amount of weight to lose it can be overwhelming but you are the only person standing in your way. The work has been worth it, but I’m far from done. This is a lifelong course, and I’m going to keep going!
