Why I Got Started

Like many, I had been trying to lose weight for a few years. But, like many, I failed every time and lost motivation to start up again. I don't ever remember being thin, even at a young age. As I grew older, my weight continued to increase.

As I peaked at 252 pounds, I decided that I had enough and it was time to lose the weight. My 18th birthday was only 7 1/2 months away, so I used that as my goal.

How I Did It

At the beginning of my transformation, I started gathering all the information I needed to be successful. I also made a workout routine which began as jogging for 2 miles 3 times per week.

Then it progressed into 3 miles, then 5, and before I knew it, I was running more than 12 miles. I swapped all white carbs to whole-wheat. Over time, I became much stricter with my diet.

Throughout my transformation, I did various strength stretches for my back and yoga. I began weights at the end of my transformation.

Suggestions For Others

Consistency and patience are the two main things you need to remember when losing weight. I know how annoying and frustrating it is when you are working out and don't see much improvement. I only saw improvements after 3-4 months. Just keep at it, eventually you will get there.

Don't make your weight loss journey complicated. The concept of losing weight is simple (low carbs, low calories and workout). Once you get the hang of what kinds of food to eat, you won't need to keep track of your calorie intake.

Take pictures! Even if you don't see a difference in the mirror, the pictures will show a change. And use the scale as motivation. Keep track of your weight loss to boost your confidence.

Go running outdoors. When you run in public, you get support from those around you. Running outside turns your workout into more of a hobby than a chore.

Ignore others during your transformation. There will be people who try to tell you that you can't do it. At the end of the day, it's you who puts in the sweat and effort, not them.
