Losing weight is hard. Trust me, I get it. After decades of gaining and losing the same 10, 20, 30 and even 40 pounds, I finally realized that my definition of “healthy” was missing one essential realization: Getting fit is a lifestyle, not a temporary program with a start and end date.
That was seven years ago.
After I flipped the script on my mindset and accepted that lasting change takes time, I slowly lost 75 pounds. Over the course of a year, I put one foot in front of the other to make small, but meaningful changes that I knew would last a lifetime.
And while getting fit is a journey unique to each of us, it sure doesn’t hurt to get a little bit of inspiration and advice from someone who’s “been there, done that!”
Check out the 14 fitness tips that helped me lose 75 pounds and keep it off.
