It’s a long journey and it takes time, patience, dedication, hard work, sacrifices, goals, and so much more, but at the end of the day that time is going to pass regardless and in the end every single step will be worth it even more than you can imagine.
Hey guys! My name is Jessica, I’m 21 and i started my journey at the end of February 2016. Ive always been a picky eater so for me, “over eating” isn’t what made me gain weight. It’s what I ate, because everything I put in my mouth were fried greasy foods or straight carbs! I’ve dealt with being over weight my whole life until I finally told myself that I didn’t want to be like that anymore. After a month of exercise, I stepped on the scale for the first time in a year and a half and I was 322. Seeing that number is what made me keep going. Being in the 200s is a scary thing let alone the 300s so that did it for me! So far I have lost over 135 pounds and I’m still kicking butt to reach my goal which is 160 then eventually 145. For the first 3-4 months of losing weight, I was using Herbalife meal replacement shakes.2 shakes a day and 1 meal with healthy snacks in between meals. Then I started to only do 1 shake a day with 2 meals and healthy snacks in between meals for another 4 months. Then finally gave up the shakes and started eating normal meals and exercising still everyday. My life has changed so much and I couldn’t be happier with how things are going for me on this journey:)
I know it doesn’t always seem like it but you can change. You don’t have live an unhappy life. You don’t have to be plagued by obesity. You don’t have to be ashamed or embarrassed of your body. You CAN be healthy. You CAN be confident. You can be whatever you want. You just have to work for it. Put yourself first. You’re worth the investment. 🖤
