My 105 lbs Weight Loss Story

It’s been nearly 5 years since I made that initial decision that my life needed to change from both a physical and psychological perspective and in that time an awful lot has happened.

People who want to lose weight all have varying amounts that they want to lose but for someone like me who wanted to lose such a huge amount, it wasn't until I reached my end goal that I came to realize how restricted I was before. While I was actually experiencing the difficult times, I didn't comprehend how insecure I was and how little self esteem I actually had. General day to day experiences that most people take for granted were a struggle like walking up stairs, buying clothes and liking myself enough to have my photo taken or look in a mirror without feeling shameful.

As a result of making fundamental changes in my life, I am now a very happy and positive person and without meaning to sound arrogant, I am now very proud of who I am. By being at peace with myself, I was then able to successfully lose 105Ibs and have not looked back for nearly 3 years.

The reason I give this brief account of my experiences is that I hope that I can inspire others and help people to realize that we are all capable of achieving our aspirations and dreams. It’s just a question of doing things in the right way that works specifically for us.

I have set up a Twitter account so I can provide effective weight loss tips and share my account further. If you would like to follow me you can find me at @ludlow_mark

Good luck everyone and I wish you all every success for the future. X
