The coolest success story EVER!!!!

Sunday, October 27, 2013

Long story short, last saturday I met a lady who has such an incredible weight loss success story. I'm so thankful to God that I met her!!

Get this: she hasn't had McDonald's in 20 years!!

Also, she's kept off 100 pounds for, anyone want to take a guess?

35 years- 35!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!! (She'll be 72 years old soon and by the way if you ever saw this lady she looks so good for her age, she looks to be in her fifties!)

I was astounded!!
I had to ask her how she did it.

Here's what she did to lose the weight: Every 6 weeks, she would try a new diet (i.e., a liquid diet) and would stick to it rigidly.
She lost 100 pounds in 1 year that way.
Even she admitted that it wasn't the healthiest route to go on. But it worked for her!
Also, she goes on the treadmill, does Pilates and lift weights (if I remember correctly) to keep the weight off. She also eats about 1400-1500 calories a day.
Another good thing she mentioned is that you'll get used to eating healthier.

Her biggest weakness? Candy, which she does still eat. (I think we all have our own food weaknesses. Mine are carbs, and not the good kind!)

Her top tip? Stick with it-no matter what!
Stick with it, even when you don't feel like it.
Stick with it, even when all you want to do is give up, and quit this thing because it seems too hard.
Stick with it, no matter what, and you will see the results!
Because it can happen and you can do it. It all starts with a thought.

I hope this story has encouraged you and inspired you wherever you are on your own weight loss journey.

Keep going, keep moving, and keep on doing what you know is right!

Before: 220 lbs.
Lost: 100 pounds
After: 110-119 lbs.
Took 1 year to lose 100 pounds, and has kept it off for 35 years (that still amazes me!)
