Before I lost weight, I had a very sedentary lifestyle. I ate 5-6 solid meals a day that consisted of simple carbohydrates like pizza, pasta, ice cream, and lots of snacks. Even though I’ve been exercising, I haven’t done cardio. A much heavier weight definitely contributed to low energy levels, mood swings, daily headaches, and high blood pressure, all of which resulted in numerous doctor visits. I noticed that a large part of that weight was fat and water retention due to my high sodium intake and poor diet. I had no social life and I never went out and was ridiculed by men and women.
I decided to lose weight in July 201
I started reading a lot about different types of food. Starting a diet has been extremely difficult for me as I have completely cut sugar from my diet. My diet has evolved – when I started losing weight, I would eat less. I only ate whole grain carbohydrates, turkey, chicken, vegetables, and fruits. A typical breakfast consisted of three slices of whole wheat bread, 3 to 5 ounces of chicken, and blueberries. Sometimes I just ate a serving of oatmeal mixed with blueberries and walnuts. Dinner was usually a 5 ounce chicken salad.
I developed a training routine that I continue to modify today. This included weights with Bowflex dumbbells, strength training with the Bowflex home fitness machine, and cardio. I trained seven days a week.
I started seeing results at the end of the first month. I was so pleased with the results that it was a great motivational tool to continue my diet and exercise routines. I started to feel very safe. I weighed 191 pounds when I started and now I weigh 139 pounds.
During the weight loss process, I got a lot more energy, my blood pressure dropped, my cravings went down, and people noticed the changes. I’ve never felt better in my entire life. I feel confident and happy overall. I still diet and exercise to keep my figure and weight off.
