Weight Loss Story of the Day: Instagram Diva Pamela lost 55 pounds. She not only changed her body, but also the way she felt about herself. She took 2 years to transform her lifestyle and got great results. Check out what she shared about her weight loss journey:
“My motivation to lose weight was when my husband and I went through a separation. Once we decided to work things out, I realized I really didn’t love myself anymore. I didn’t like a lot of things about myself and I began working on each of them one by one, starting with weight.
I changed my eating habits by cutting down my portions, and eliminating sweet drinks. I began to eat my meals on salad plates and after every bite, I’d put the fork down. I ate a lot less this way. My workout routine was walking 3 miles 5 days a week. I did this for a year. Then, I began running 15 miles a week. When I started lifting, that’s when I really noticed my body change and tone.
My starting weight was 220 pounds and my current weight is 165 pounds. My complete transformation took 2 years. I have maintained the weight loss, built lean muscle and keep a very active lifestyle.
My advice for anyone looking to lose weight is to start with one thing you are ready change. Eating less, walking, drinking water…whichever you chose, stick with it until it is habit. Then, pick something else to start working on. Don’t overwhelm yourself with doing it all at once. All of this is how those habits have stayed with me and are a part of my everyday life.”
