Weight Loss Success Story: Marie D.
I've got another inspiring weight loss success story to share with you today. Read on to discover how Marie has been able to escape the curse of both extreme dieting/exercise and overindulgence. She successfully lost weight with an "everything in moderation" lifestyle...
Tell Us A Little Bit About Your Weight Struggle
Before I was married I was an exercise addict and even though I lost weight and felt good about my size, I was living a disordered life filled with constant guilt and obsessing.
After I had my two children, I was almost 170 pounds at 5'4" and I desperately wanted to make a change without becoming that exercise/food obsessed girl that I once was.
What Was Your Wake-Up Call Or "A-Ha Moment" That Caused You To Really Commit Yourself To Succeeding?
Once my dad started to cut the majority of his carbs and started to count his calories, he started losing weight drastically. I thought that if he can do it without exercising, maybe I should give it a shot.
How Have Your Eating Habits Changed Since Beginning Your Journey? What Did You Eat Before And What Are You Eating Now?
I used to eat a ton of carbs during the day. I would also eat with reckless abandon while living a "treat yourself" lifestyle.
I cut all the breads out of my diet during the week and started to count my calories with a calorie counting app. Counting the calories made me realize just how much I was actually overeating.
What Is The Difference In Your Fitness Before You Started And Now?
My fitness level hasn't changed that much. Being a past exercise addict, I have to watch myself carefully to make sure that I don't go down that road again.
I recently started to incorporate some light cardio and aerobics into my weekly routine and it has been easy on my body and mind.
What Has Been The Biggest Change/Payoff For You So Far?
The biggest payoff is how I feel inside. The sense of pride and confidence that I have is worth every missed piece of peanut butter and toast.
I still like to treat myself on the weekend which ensures that I won't feel deprived. I'm loving this new "everything in moderation" lifestyle and I find it easily attainable.
How Much Weight Have You Lost? How Long Did It Take You To Lose It?
I have lost 35 pounds in 5-6 months.
