Weight Loss Success Stories
pounds Post Partum Weight Loss
I was not over weighted always. But I gained the weight With
my last baby. I gained around 75 pounds in my pregnancy period
And I did not lose all of the weight, in fact through the
years I put increasingly more on , after it. I was embarrassed
about my weight therefore, I started staying away from people,
stayed inside and ate even more. (cause I am habitual of
eating even more when in tension)
The final straw was my school friendís 40th birthday and I did
not go for fear of old friends seeing me. Whether they would
or would not have recognized me was not the issue. Either way
I would have been equally humiliated.
This was really tough time for me cause I am normally
out-going and fun. I had turned into someone I didn't know. I
had 80 pounds to lose.
I always keep thinking about how did I let this happen? Deep
down I knew I was avoiding feelings and issues. I didn't know
how to deal with many of them and I found comfort with food.
It was really hard to made myself for all this but the day had
come...I was ready to deal with it . I was now in control of
my life. This is where it all changes.
What all I needed to get started was Getting honest to myself.
I accepted my problem and then opted a positive mental
attitude about my problem. This helped me in Defeating
procrastination and adopting a "do-it-know" approach.
This is what has worked for me. My choice for exercise is
primarily walking and 14 minutes on the cycle. Since your body
will get used to the same workout day after day, which in turn
might cause the weight loss to slow down, switch your workout
around. When that happens to me, I just switched from walking
and cycling to stepping and simple crunches.
And moved to advanced workout after some time i.e. Around 6
Since "fat" were my main enemy I limited them to 20 grams or
less a day yes. I did that by reading those food labels. I eat
less, try serving yourself on a small dish! Eat Smart and set
some realistic GOALS.
I totally avoided fast food, fried food, or use salt. I drink
at least 68 ounces of water per day so that leaves me no room
for sodas or anything else (that's 2 big sports bottles full
of water) No meds just vitamins.
These things along with determination and the continual love
and support of my family made this journey easier.
If I can do this anyone can. You just have to care enough
about you to make yourself a priority. I am thrilled with my
success so far. I am still following a low-fat diet. I am
still doing the exercises I was doing and believe me I am
really happy with my results.
You people can try it as well and I am sure that you people
will have the equal good results. One more thing I want to
There are no short cuts to success. You have to work on your
body to get these results but one thing is for sure--- the
results are much exciting than you can even think of.
