One piece of advice to anyone thinking of beginning…learn to love yourself. It was because I learned to love who I was that I was able to begin losing weight.

Congratulations on such awesome work and I really like your advice about loving yourself which is very hard to do because it's hard to leave the 'loathing' place and now I think I'm ready to leave that negative loathing place and start loving myself so here I go and thank you for such great inspiration!

Amazing job! You look so good. I aspire to be like you.

Did you join a program to learn to count calories? And what about workouts?

It's very difficult to do! It took me YEARS to get to the point where I could love myself, and it all started with something small, my hair. Once I learned to embrace that I began to see myself in a new light.

Nope! I just googled "calories in x" when I was looking for the calories for a certain item. I know most calorie counts by heart now. Workouts are done at my gym where I've been going for 8 years: either in the group fitness classes or before them (where I'm lifting heavy). Sometimes I'll trek over to another gym to lift, or I'll do bodyweight exercises inbetween sitting on the computer

You look so good!!!! Beautiful! Congratulations.

Choosing foods high in protein over carbs has helped me to lose weight and keep it off as well and I couldn't agree with you more on your comment about loving yourself....That is the secret ingredient to any diet or workout plan...

Lifting!

I never actually intended to get down this low, but I think that all the heavy lifting I did really helped! It came off slowly, but slow and steady wins the race
