“Trying to completely turn my life around in an instant always ended up with me giving up, so my advice is to start small!”
“Get over your all or nothing mentality and get over it fast. You will definitely fail and struggle and flail around and not know what you’re doing, but this journey is 99% about consistency.”
“It took me 27 years for me to reach 257 lbs, I am not going to lose 100 of it overnight. Your body undergoes so many changes during this process, so I recommend practicing a wee bit of patience with yourself and don’t get angry when the scale doesn’t move!”
“My motivation is that I’m only 25, I love going out and enjoying myself and I was sick of feeling embarrassed or ashamed at how I looked. The confidence that you gain when losing weight is an amazing feeling, and that confidence keeps me going.”
“It’s also important to remember what you’re gaining as you’re losing. I’ve gained so much more than I could ever lose in weight.”
“Once I lost 96lbs, I decided to go shopping for jeans – something I haven’t done in 8+ years. THAT was the moment where I realized the amount of weight I had lost. I was finally able to put on a pair of Zara jeans and didn’t have to rely on jeggings. Such a liberating feeling.”
“The most important part of staying motivated is to have a solid reason as to WHY you want to lose weight. I don’t care if it’s to improve your health or even to look better naked. You have to have a reason WHY and it has to be incredibly meaningful and important to you.”
“To be a better role model for my kids, I went to go see a doctor for treatment. Deciding to not let this define me, I was determined to not only beat it but to become the best version of myself.”
I knew I needed to lose weight. After having my daughter in 2016, I needed to lose the weight for her, just as much as I did myself!
