Jarred Aslett

Thirty-two-year-old Jarred Aslett started to re-examine his life after his engagement ended. Since he’d graduated, he’d been gaining weight to the point that he ended up weighing about 220 kilograms (almost 500 pounds). That’s a lot of weight to carry around and can have quite a detrimental effect on a person’s bones and organs. It didn’t take long for him to realize that he could no longer do what he enjoyed doing, like surfing and snowboarding. And because of that, he started drinking alcohol to help him cope with his feelings, which only added more weight.

However, after attending therapy, he realized he needed to change his habits and how he conducted his life. His journey started by working out with his brother at the gym for 90 minutes at a time. In only 50 months, he lost 220 pounds, almost half of the weight he once was. He hasn’t let up on his training either and has started snowboarding again like he used to.

Mike Pompeo

Mike Pompeo, the former director of the CIA, faced many challenges throughout his career, but his weight continued to plague him the most. In 2021, he reached a whopping 300 pounds and realized that he had to do something to change his life. The next day, Mike woke up and took charge of his figure. He started by exercising almost every day and changing how he ate.

He even added a home area to his gym so that he could increase the intensity of his workouts and burn even more calories. Mike focused on working out for at least 30 minutes each day to start turning exercise into a good habit. In just six months, he ended up losing about 90 pounds. However, instead of congratulating him, most people who saw his pictures asked if he was sick or had some other health problem. It’s a shame that his hard work wasn’t more celebrated.

Lisa Laurion

Lisa Laurion gained the motivation to lose weight after attending her own son’s wedding. Seeing pictures of herself while weighing 250 pounds, she didn’t like how she looked. So Lisa decided to start cutting many things out of her diet to begin her weight loss journey. The first thing she cut out of her diet was ice cream and coffee.

Then she joined the Take Off Pounds Sensibly Program, which helped her shed even more weight. Lisa then removed flour from her diet and measured her meals three times a day to ensure that she was eating the right portion. By the end of it all, she ended up losing almost 100 pounds, all at the age of 60! Of course, she has plans to keep the weight off forever due to her new lifestyle.

Martine Etienne-Mesubi

Martine had had enough of her weight after having her second child. She weighed roughly 225 pounds and attributed it to her bad eating habits while pregnant with her second child. She ate whatever she wanted, even getting up in the middle of the night to eat a bowl of cereal before going right back to bed. However, after her second child stopped breastfeeding, she realized that she could no longer blame her bad eating habits on being pregnant. She couldn’t play with her six-year-old either without losing her breath.

So she decided to take matters into her own hands. She used to be an active runner, too. However, Martine knew that she couldn’t use the same weight-loss tactics as before because of her age. Instead, she decided to put intermittent fasting to the test after seeing how well it worked for other people on social media. In a single year, she ended up losing about 80 pounds!
