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 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!
