Weight Loss Success Story of the Day: Juanitta lost 45 pounds. She used on of my favorite web and mobile app tools to track her eating and calorie intake and it made the difference. Here is what she shared with us about her weight loss victory:
“At the start of my journey, I weighed in at 205 pounds. Currently, I am 160 pounds. I lost a total of 45 pounds using My Fitness Pal (it’s a website and app that helps you stay on track with your eating and goals) and watching my calorie intake.
What was my motivation? I always struggled with my weight. One day, I saw my picture and realized how much weight I’d gained. I started using fitness pal in May of 2013. It took me 7 months to loose the first 40 pounds. I also dropped down 4 pants sizes. I did this by watching my calorie intake and not exceeding 2000 calories a day. For exercise, I did a little bit of walking here and there. The other thing that helped was that I stopped drinking regular pop and tried diet. I had to cut down on restaurant food too. My biggest support during this process was My Fitness Pal. It works wonders and I was amazed how many calories I was exceeding in a day once I started tracking my food with it. My advice to others is to be patient and stay motivated.”
