“-208lbs lost since January 1st, 2016. 485lbs to 277lbs. Size 28w/30w to 16w/18w. From a quiet unhappy girl to a confident motivated woman. I was told this wasn’t something i’d be able to do. I was told i should just have surgery because all the working out was bad on my joints EVEN after I was already losing the weight.
I wanted to lose weight naturally & I knew this was my last chance. No surgery, no pills, etc. People always are going to have an opinion of you, but you have to use those words to fuel your own fire. I’m so happy with who i’m becoming. I want to help people. I want to travel. I want an education. I want a healthy body physically & spiritually. I want so many things that weren’t possible before & I spent so long not having those things that now I have a sense of urgency everyday to wake up & to get them done.
The word ‘no’ longer exists. Changing your life is possible, you just have to take the first steps & not worry what a single damn person has to say.”
