No gimmicks here. I joined a gym, worked out 4-5 times a week ( sometimes with a trainer ) and ate 1100-1500 calories a day. I wrote down everything I ate, drank a crap load of water, took my vitamins, and that is how I did it.
It's not necessarily a before and after picture, because I am far from done.
But through this embarrassing "before" photo, I wanted to inspire other real people, and show you it can be done. I'm down 45 pounds. I'm 5'8" and weighed 250, and now I'm at 205 with 35ish to go.
I love this season of the biggest loser because they are going by the theme of no excuses. They tackle every excuse. The biggest one I hear is, I dont have time. Guess what? No, you dont. You wont have anytime left if you dont start moving, today. I have a dear friend, Karin, who is a working mom of 2, who's lost well over 100lbs ON HER OWN. Amy, is another, working mom, who has lost over 75lbs. Go make the time to get healthy, and fight for MORE time with your loved ones.
I'm still learning, I still battle saying no to bad stuff, I dont have it all together, but I'm certainly on my way.
I hope you are inspired.
