What motivated you to join Lose to Win?
My health, my relationship with my husband, and I was also bullied. I couldn’t breathe when I was sleeping and had trouble simply picking up things and I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin. I have a two year old daughter. People would tell her “her mom was too fat” and my daughter would ask why I was so big. I gained weight because of always eating and sitting, and looking to food for comfort.
My weight loss took one year. I am down 75lbs total, 40 from the Lose to Win program and stilling wanting to lose 20 more. My skin is better and I can actually fit in clothes when trying them on. I could eat a lot more before. During my weight loss, I focused on portion control and now I cannot eat as much as before.
For exercise, I did Zumba, pushups and wall sits. My husband would help train me. He was always very positive and supportive and would eat the same as me to help me out. My weight loss was not for vanity but for health, and my husband treated it the same way.
What were your goals when you started the program?
My goal was to become disciplined. My husband is/was my trainer and helped me with my exercise routines and nutrition. I ate a lot of lean protein, green drinks, less fat, no junk food, didn’t use sugar. He was very supportive and ate the same way as me to help keep me motivated to lose weight.
