Kristin first realized she needed to lose weight when walking a simple flight of stairs became as difficult as running a marathon.? Kristin, 41, weighed 211 lbs when she gained the motivation to finally change her life.? Within the first six months, Kristin lost 44 lbs.? No longer was she wearing a size 20/22!? Her new clothing size of 16 made it possible to own new chic clothing along with a new confidence.? Read about Kristin’s amazing success below.
I was unhappy for a long time about my weight.? I did not like what I saw in the mirror.? I had received the Vida180 newsletter in my inbox.? I was enjoying reading the success stories of the other members.? I realized a few months later that I too, needed to lose weight.? I wanted to be successful just like those other Vida180 members.? I could not even walk up 15 steps without being out of breath. I signed up with Vida180 that very day.
My weight gain began after the birth of my son 13 years ago. I developed a bad habit of eating his leftovers. I was so busy that I turned to fast-food and unhealthy snacks for meals.
Like most other Vida180 members, I have previously tried other diets.? I look back now and realize how ridiculous some were. I was just so desperate at the time that I would have tried anything!? With all the fad diets, I would initially lose weight, but soon after the number on the scale would climb back up.
Vida180 was different.? I was actually able to eat while on this plan.? In fact I was encouraged to eat 3 meals and 2 snack per day.? I was also never hungry.? I left the table feeling satisfied and entered every meal feeling like I needed to eat, but not starved.
I like that the Vida180 diet is varied. I no longer have to rack my brain on a daily basis to figure out what to serve for dinner.? Shopping is simplified with the printable shopping list.? The recipes are delicious.? Some of the family favorites include: One Pot Beef with Lentils and Rice, Crunchy Oven Fried Fish Sticks with Macaroni and Cheese, Cream Cheese Chive Scrambled Eggs, and Honey Graham Microwave S’mores.
Seeing how every week the pounds “went down” was a great motivator!? After I lost 44 pounds, I realized that all the clothes in my closet were becoming too big.
I was now down by three dress sizes and shopping became a fun experience again.? My self-confidence has increased tremendously.? I was never able to find stylish clothes in a size 20/22.? Now that I can wear a size 16, I can shop in the regular woman’s section.? Clothes are more fashionable in regular sizes. I had wanted to dress like the young woman that I was and now I could!
I have resolved to never again have to wear a size 20/22 again.? I donated all my old clothes to charity.? I did keep one large pair of pants to remind me how far I have come in my weight loss journey.?? I now pay attention to my intake on a daily basis.? I call my Vida180 Nutritionist when I need support. I would like to lose another 10 lbs, but for now am working on maintaining my weight.
