Alexus lost 31 pounds. She stopped complaining and took charge of her life. Walking 5 miles a day and cleaning up her eating habits helped her release the weight, but patience was the key. Check out her story.
I’m a 20-year-old student at Fort Valley State University. I used to complain until I finally got up and made the change. I started my weight loss journey in May 2018. Today, I’m down 31 pounds, and I’m just getting started! (The third picture was taken in January 2019.)
