Pushing myself fit! Paraplegic woman reveals how she lost 275lbs!

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

"Mia Vayner, 54, who identifies as transgender and is currently based in Queens, New York, said after being left immobile in her forties her 6ft 3in frame came to tip the scales at around 540lbs.

But when doctors told her she only had one year to live because of the impact her large size was having on her health, she desperately sought ways to get active."

"Today, four years on, she weighs a healthier 265lbs and she's lost 36inches off her waist taking her from a size 38 to a 16."

"On the health front, her cholesterol and blood pressure levels are now normal, and she no longer has type 2 diabetes."


WOW!!! What an inspiration!

    Kind of takes all of one's excuses, and makes them seem ridiculous, huh?

    We can always get healthier, with a good plan, and sticking to it. If we can lose 3 lbs, we can lose 300, it just takes longer.
