Weight Loss Story: Cristal took her time and lost 100 pounds over the course of 2 years. She was tired of being out of breath and not being able to ride certain rides at amusement parks. Here is what she shared with us about her journey…
Hello, my name is Cristal J. It have been 2 years since I started my weight loss journey. My family motivated me to start my journey. I was also motivated by being out of breath after going up one flight of stairs and by not being able to ride certain rides at amusement parks.
My starting weight was weight 268 pounds and now I weigh 168 pounds. I took almost 2 years to lose 100 pounds. I would say that I look better 100 pounds lighter.
Eating habits: First, I went to a dietitian for advice and then I started eating smaller portions. I also began eating more protein and taking multi-vitamins daily.
Working out: I exercised 3 times a week for 15-20 minutes on the treadmill and the elliptical.
Advice: Make sure not to lose weight too quickly. Also, go buy an outfit that is the size you want to see yourself in and keep it in your eyesight as a goal. Stay focused on the course that is at hand and never ever give up.
