How I lost 100 Pounds

Laura has made an amazing transformation, having lost 100 pounds in a year, here is a little motivation from her – the story of the lion and the gazelle! She’s an amazing woman, follow her on Instagram at @theirongiantess and check out our Instagram for more inspiring stories daily!

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.

It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.

It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”

I listen to this speech all the time when I need motivation. I listened to it throughout my journey. Wake up running, my dears. After two years, 100+ pounds and a new health issue-free lease on life, I can honestly say deciding to “start running” was my greatest decision. Why will you run?
