Weight Loss Achievement
She dropped 60+ pounds (27 kg) in 6 months, so average 10 pounds (5 kg) per month.

Weight Loss Wake-Up Call
Angelica wrote on her blog that getting started was the hardest part when it comes to losing weight. Like most of us, she keeps making excuses for being overweight. "I don't have running shoes," "Bob's party is this Saturday," "Mom just bought my favorite ice cream and chips," "I'm tired," "I have arthritis," "Life's short, so eat what you like," "I'm fat. This is how God created me to be," and the famous one, "I'm tooooo BUSY." But the decision that finally made her weight loss resolution stick began when she was admitted in hospital to go through her infusion treatment for her arthritis. Seeing all those sick people next to her made her think about her life and health. She didn't want to see herself confined to the hospital bed, knowing she could have prevented diabetes or heart complications.

Diet Plan
She didn't take any pills to lose weight! She simply change her "diet" to clean eating and stayed within a 1200 calorie diet. She would eat anything healthy and more filling as long as the total daily doesn't exceed her calorie budget. She focuses on not just her portion size but change her eating habit as well. "What are the benefits of this food?" This is the question she would ask to herself before eating.

Fitness Routine
She had no gym membership when she started working out. Her goal is just to be active and move around. She walked a mile for a week, started jogging on week 2, and eventually worked up to Insanity with Shaun T.

Weight Loss Hot Tips
1. YOU have to first be healthy
Don't focus on how you look and what you should look like. Along with being healthy and fit will come those benefits of looking leaner.

2. Get up and Exercise 
There are so many websites (YouTube) that offer free workout routines. Utilize them all.

3. Start off with making small changes to your lifestyle
For instance, start with eliminating rice or sugary drinks.

4. Never give up
If you screwed up today, don't say you'll make up tomorrow or next week or next month. Just make healthier decisions after that.
