She said she always ate tons of junk food and decided that it was time to lose weight because she wanted her children to adopt “good” eating habits that would sustain them through out their lifetimes. Through dedication and hyper vigilance she was able to drop a whopping 50 pounds of fat from her body by simply cutting out junk food from her diet.

Lisa’s Weight Loss Success Story
Lisa was overweight most of her adult life and battled with weight related illnesses like diabetes(diabetes in the united states) she was only 27 years old and weighed in at almost 300 lbs. Her health was chock full of issues, she considered surgery but was afraid of the side effects so she took the bull by the horns and started her weight loss journey:
“ For me weight loss wasn’t so much about what I was eating as it was how much I was eating . I never really considered how much food I was consuming until I started my food journal. Taking that one simple step of writing down everything I ate was like a slap in the face. It was my wake up call and of course the fact that I was getting zero exercise was a big factor. I started out with reducing how much I ate than I added simple walking exercise. Keeping it simple for me is what worked. I adopted a no stress approach to losing the pounds. I only stepped on a scale once a month. I walked everywhere I could and I just reduced the amount of food I ate at every meal. After two years of my lifestyle changes I have lost ½ my body weight and I am down to 150lbs.”
