Weight Loss Story of the Day: Brittany lost 82 pounds and she has kept the weight off for 2 years. Here is what she shared about her weight loss journey:
“Hi There! My friend introduced me to this page and I’ve really liked the tips and the shared stories. I have a story of my own. I’ve been struggling with my weight since I was in 2nd grade but with motivation from my mom, eating healthier and by exercising everyday (sometimes twice), I was able to lose 60 pounds in about 3 months. Unfortunately, I gained 30 lbs back, but since then I have lost a whopping 82 pounds total and have been able to keep it off for two years now.
What did you do in terms of changing your eating habits and exercise?
I started by going to the gym every day, sometimes twice a day with my mother. She’s always been my biggest motivator. I stopped eating fast food, cut out pork and cut out beef. I also added vegetables, that I never knew were so good, to my diet. I started drinking protein shakes and juicing fresh fruits and veggies. I was also walking 5 miles, 5 times a week. I’m not finished yet but I would like to be able to help motivate others in their journey to get fit and become healthier happier individuals. Here is a before and after pic.”
