1. What made you choose to lose weight?

In my education class I watched a Brian Flatt video filmed in the fattest city in the United States at the time. There was a teenager that had a dark ring around his neck. The doctor said that the ring was an early indicator of diabetes. Basically, if the family and teen didn’t change their eating and exercise habits there would be health issues galore. I had that same ring around my neck. It terrified me. So I made it a point to reduce the risk.

2. What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?

I stopped eating fast food and I started to only drink water or tea. I did a complete 180 with exercise. I went from completely sedentary to a cardio junkie in a week.

3. What was most challenging on the subject of losing weight?

Figuring out how to maintain workouts with 10 pounds of loose skin on my midsection. It is incredibly painful and a constant challenge to maneuver.

4. How long did it take you to begin to see results?

It took me 5 months to SEE the results. I still see myself in the mirror as the girl I used to be. I take a lot of pictures to compare them to old ones so I can tell myself that I’m NOT that girl any longer. However, it took my family 2 weeks to notice the change. It only took that long because I was living at college so they didn’t see me as often.

5. How long achieved it take that you can achieve your current weight?

It took me 7 months. I had some setbacks but many triumphs to overcome those downfalls!

6. How long perhaps you have maintained your bodyweight loss and how will you do it?

I’ve been as small as I am now for roughly a year!

7. How has your daily life changed given that you’ve lost weight?

Well, I am obviously much healthier. I get more attention from men, which I don’t need or want any longer. Ironic I know. I am also more confident than I ever was before.

8. How did the 3 Week Diet help you reach your weight loss goals?

the 3 Week Diet helped tone me up a bit with the exercises that focused on a certain way to eat. Reading the book and following the guide make me keep going on this journey even if I don’t have any more weight to lose. Also, looking at my own progress pictures helps a ton.

Weight loss tip #1

Stay hydrated.

Weight loss tip #2

Cut out the junk foods.

Weight loss tip #3

Do at least 30 minutes of cardio, 3 times a week.

Weight loss tip #4

Incorporate weights into your workout routine.

Weight loss tip #5

If you fall into a plateau, eat more than you usually would or change up your workout routine.


1/2 cup of oatmeal with 1 tsp of light brown sugar, and some type of fruit.


Quest bar, apple, and vegetables with ranch or peanut butter.


Grilled cheese and tomato soup or a black bean burger with vegetables.


Cereal such as Chex or Honey Nut Cheerios with almond milk.

Weight Training

I focus on a few body parts each workout. For example, one day I will train back and triceps, the next will be legs and core, then I go to chest and biceps. After that I’ll focus on glutes (butt). Nothing extreme. I use 15 pound dumbbells or lighter.


30-45 minutes of the elliptical machine or 20 minutes on the Stairmaster. I do cardio at least 4 times a week. I like to switch it up so I follow what seems more appealing that day. I also like to do intense workouts like Insanity or Insanity the Asylum.
