How did you gain your weight? I gained weight by eating unhealthy, over eating and not being active at all.
What made you change your lifestyle? I made the change because I was tired of being overweight and wanting to look and feel better.
How did you lose your weight? I lost the weight by eating healthier, doing intermittent fasting, staying in a caloric deficit and going to the gym 6 days a week.
What was the hardest obstacle in your weight loss journey? The hardest thing was making the lifestyle change and sticking with it. Changes are hard to make and we sometimes resist them.
Any advise you would like to offer to people that are starting this journey? The only advise I would give is to make the change and stay dedicated and determined. Your mind is very powerful and mental toughness is the best way to get through it.
What kept you motivated? The thing that kept me and still keeps me motivated is wanting to look better and be healthy. I realized there is always room for improvement. I'm young, and I want to enjoy life, and I hope to live a long and healthy life.
