Aug 2015 – Weight Loss Story: K.J. lost 43 pounds. This petite, full-time student decided to change her lifestyle by embracing a Paleo lifestyle and working out 4 days a week. She’s gone from a size 16-18 to a size 8. Here is what she shared with us about her weight loss journey…
Exactly 4 months ago, I decided to change my life and do something for me. I was 22 years old and weighed 198 pounds. For someone who is 5’1″ tall, weight is very noticeable. I wanted to lose weight the old fashion way. I changed my diet to a Paleo type lifestyle. I cut out all processed foods and switched to more fresh fruits and veggies. I also cut out pork and red meat, and settled for more turkey, fish, and chicken. In addition to those changes, I began going to the gym 4 days a week, focusing on cardio and weight training.
I now weigh 155 pounds. I went from a XL in shirts and size 16-18 in pants to a size medium in shirts and a size 8 in pants! I worked my ass off to get here! If a full time college student can do it…anybody can! I hope my pictures encourage anyone else out there trying to live a more healthy lifestyle. Remember the old ways won’t get new results! It won’t be easy, but it sure will be worth it!
