Hi my name is Dominique, I’m 23 years old. I just would like to share my weight loss story.
I have always been heavy my whole life, I was teased through high school and I didn’t have the best self esteem. I decided to make a New Years resolution in 2014 to lose weight and be healthier I did that for 4 months or so and quit. I didn’t know where to actually start. I ended up getting a new job and my boss was hosting a challenge for her birthday. She wanted to lose 30 pounds before her 30th birthday. I was asked to join, I had given up before so I didn’t really want to. I stepped on the scale and it read 297 pounds. I was shocked and embarrassed! So I signed up for the challenge. I went full force they told me about myfitnesspal and I tracked all of my food. I ended up losing 31 pounds and won the challenge. I seen the results and I wanted more!! So I went to my local gym and signed up for a personal trainer. I trained with him once a week and was required to do 3 extra days alone by myself. I had a goal to lose 100 pounds in that year I did it!!! So all in all I lost 122 pounds and I’m so happy about my results so far. I have kept the weight off for almost a year now. I’m now focused on keeping the weight off and getting my NASM certification as a personal trainer. My advice to anyone who wants to do this is never give up keep pushing. image1
