pauline, 20lbs lost
Hi, my name is Pauline, at the beginning of this journey I was not super happy with how I looked physically or felt. I was tired and sluggish and suffered from low back pain. Because I was self-conscious of the way I looked, I typically would wear loose fit clothing and avoided photos unless I was sitting or standing in the back behind a group of people. Wanting to make this life style change is for me, but also my family. I want to be able to run around and keep up with my 7 year old that is extremely active and loves to play soccer and football.
At the end of Week 5 I have continued to hit my weight goals. Wow, I can hardly believe it! I have been able to eat the foods that I love and exercising has been fun. My clothes are fitting better and my lower back is not always in pain. I have more energy and I am not sluggish and tired throughout the day. The meals that I cook now are healthy, incorporating more veggies, lean protein, and healthy carbs and sugars. I do not feel like I am staving myself, which is great. I pretty much eat the foods that I like and I still am able to have my short soy vanilla latte every day. I do less sitting and watching TV and spend more time cooking, which is something I thought I would never say I would love. So far, it has been fun cooking as the meals are not complicated and are quite easy to prepare.”
