Weight Loss Success Stories: Natasha Blog About Her Weight Loss Journey to Find Motivation and Lost 47lbs

Reading an inspiring weight loss story is a fantastic way to keep me motivated on my weight loss challenge. This is another weight loss success story from a 20 years old girl from Illinois named Natasha. You can follow the rest of her story in her tumblr blog I'm Gonna Make a Change.

What made you decide to lose weight?
Because when I stepped on the scale and I saw 177, I nearly shit a brick. I knew it's time to kick my ass in gear.

How long does it take to see your weight loss result?
About a year. I took a few breaks (week long breaks, month long breaks) and I hit 2 plateaus.

What changes you made to lose weight?
I went from eating 2500 calories a day to 1200-1500. I went from eating giant bowls of pasta to fruit, vegetables and lean meat.

For breakfast, I almost always have eggs. Not just the white because the yolk actually have lots of vitamins. I have 2 eggs with bell peppers, green chilies, onions, tomatoes, a little bit of cheese, oregano, garlic salt and cilantro. Occasionally I have a bowl of oatmeal or cream of wheat or some toast.

For lunch, it varies. Sometimes my mom have leftovers in the fridge of her super healthy meatloaf or meatballs (both made with ground turkey) and I have some of that. If not, I will have pita pocket stuffed with chicken/ turkey, green chilies, spices, some cheese, etc.

For dinner, I generally keep it small and it varies like with lunch. Sometimes I make a whole wheat, homemade pizza and sometime I make fajitas. Each meal is about 300-400 cal, occasionally more. I don't count calories. I jut east what I know is healthy.

What about your workout plan
I honestly think that exercise has had the biggest effect on my weight loss. I do 30 mins -1 hour of cardio at least 5 days a week. I try to do it everyday but I am a full time student and go to class Monday to Thursday, so it hard sometimes. We have an elliptical machine in my house and that is what I do my cardio on. I do various thing for toning like Pilates (which KILLS) or I workout with my mon (who also KILLS). We do planks, push-ups, ab workout, weight workout - EVERYTHING. I'm always working out with her.


What's all this about your mom?
My mom is a personal trainer and my biggest inspiration. She motivated me to get healthy.
