17 Pounds in 12 Days! My Weightloss Story
Hello everyone

I had always been the person that everyone turned to, the confident and the support system. I had a really hard time putting myself first and talking about my own pain with friends and family who often felt so comfortable divulging what they were going through to me. I turned to food as means of letting out how I was feeling. I used to hide food from my family, do separate grocery shops and eat in my room It took me a long time to realize how harmful this was and how I really felt about my life and my size. I tried to convince myself that I enjoyed my body. I had boyfriends who liked me but I still found it a challenge to look in the mirror.

Today, my life is completely different I have lost over 17 pounds in 12 days!

Health and fitness means so much to me. I eat clean, I work out several times a week and I feel great about where I am now.

I would love to have my story posted and have the chance to help others with these struggles as I know how hard it can be to get started but how good it feels once you have.

Good for you that you lost the weight! The hour-long jogs must have been difficult, 3 times a week. You have great will power and stamina.

Way to go!
That is an awesome life changing story! I also struggled with food and depression. Are you still loving to keep up with your new found fitness life? I know what changed for me was when I started taking a martial art. I think it's really all about finding motivation.

What's your motivation to continue exercising and healthy eating?

Hi Kate,
I need to do the same thing I'm going through some things
and I want to lose weight I started by drinking water through
the week but on my days off I drink Pepsi and eat something sweet
I want to lose weight and my goal weight is 125lbs I think that is a
good weight and its very realistic
