Losing weight is one of the hardest things anybody anytime does. It’s appropriate up there with abandonment smoking, and it’s aloof as important for your health. And with blubber hitting catching accommodation and bringing crushing bloom problems with it, every admonition that big weight accident can be done is critical.
So booty agenda of Cheryl Blythe. She absent 200 pounds in aloof 18 months, and she didn’t go on The Biggest Loser. Better still, she alone had to accomplish one change…
She was told that, if she made no changes, she would be dead or in a wheelchair by the age of 45.
With that weight came a host of issues: trouble walking, breathing difficulties, and back pain. While out with her friends one day she needed to stop constantly, couldn’t fit into chairs, and felt like people were staring at her. The doctor’s message hit home and within days she had signed on with Slimming World, a local weight loss group.
That sounds bad, but she had a good reason. “I felt that by having a gastric band fitted I wouldn’t be learning anything about healthy eating or my own relationship with food — or helping my children to have a good understanding of healthy eating either,” she told the Daily Mail.
In her 20s she lost control, consuming burgers, chips, fries, and several candy bars every day. And at a few points she tried to lose weight but failed.So what changed this time? How did Cheryl turn it all around and lose 200 pounds in 18 months?
While she wouldn’t have even had breakfast before, she started eating grilled lean bacon with visible fat removed, tomatoes, mushrooms, and two poached eggs every morning.
She replaced that with a homemade baked potato topped with chili.
After she lost 100 pounds she could exercise more, which allowed her to melt the pounds off even faster. But she credits a talk with her weight loss counselor with the real change she needed to stick with it: altering her goals and expectations.
The back pain and breathing problems are gone and she can go out with friends without having to worry about stares or not fitting into chairs. And she was named Slimming World’s Woman of the Year for 2015!
