If there were one word I would use to describe Melissa over this past year I would say consistency. I of course would also add in hardworking and focused. No matter what obstacles have come in her life she has kept the focus on her health goals. She has lost 48lbs to date since we started working together! I couldn’t be more proud of her. As we continue to work on her goals we must pause to celebrate her progress.
When she started with me she was barely eating 1200 calories a day. We took many weeks to increase her food intake and to repair her failing metabolism!! As we increased she started to lose weight each week!! Her weight loss continued throughout the whole process till we found her maintenance calories around 2000 calories per day! After we reached that mark she decided to go on a cut to continue towards her goals.
She has lost several inches on her waist, hips, and neck! Body fat percentage has decreased as well.! The biggest change of all that I have noticed is her confidence!
Here is how the process has been for Melissa:
What has this process meant to you? Dedication, Determination
What habits have you changed that helped you get where you currently are? Removing all bad items from eyesight, learning to cook with more vegetable
What was the biggest struggle to date during this progress? Alcohol lol
What is your favorite thing in this process? Watching myself change, try on new clothes in different SMALLER sizes
What has helped you the most? Watching my daughter struggle with health issues in 2017 and whenever I fail I remind myself that I am making an example for my children
What surprised you the most during this process? Actually giving up soda
What is the one thing you want to tell people that are struggling to lose weight? Do it and keep doing it. Never give up. The reward is there and you are the only one who can make these changes.
Great Job Melissa! I can’t wait to see your progress further as the months go on.
Change takes time as you can see! If you want to change you have to put in the work to change those habits. My method is always zero food restrictions but also moderation. Small changes, big results. Every time you reach for the quick fix or the so-called YOYO diet your destroying muscle tissue aka metabolism. A great deal of your health is resolved through your muscle but if you don’t have it you are risking type II diabetes, hypertension, high lipids, etc!
