Today’s featured weight loss success story: Jacquelyn lost 76 pounds in 7 months by following the Weight Watchers plan and exercising hard. Here is what she shared with us:
I’ve lost 76 pounds since Jan 1st, 2013. My motivation is my mom,my son and my best friend. Weight watchers and exercising are the only things I used during my transformation. I still have 40 more pounds to go. I walk 4 miles a day and do Zumba 4 times a week. I lift weights 2 times a week.
My motivation for losing weight was my family. When I joined Weight Watchers, I loss 8 pounds in the first week and another 6 pounds the next week.My family cheered me on so that I didn’t want to stop. My eating habits were bad because I didnt have portion control. My husband made me a man sized plate and I ate until it was gone and wanted more. I often went to bed full and miserable. Weight Watchers gave me the control I needed and helped me to not only understand food but underatand how it affected my body and weight loss. My starting weight was 285 on Jan 1st, 2013 and as of July 26th, I weigh 209. I have loss 76 pounds. My workouts are continuous. At each moment of the day, I think about what I could be doing to help my journey. I excercise about two and a half hours a day and most of that time is taken up by my daily walk/run regimen. I do zumba 4 times a week and I lift weights 2 times a week for toning purposes. My transformation took 7 months I still want to loose avout 40 more pounds before I go into maintenance mode and I hope to do that by December of this year. My mom and my best friend are great supporters becauae we work out together everyday.
