Losing weight is not an easy task but it is not made any easier when you have people constantly commenting on how you look or remind you of your size. Something similar happened with 22-year-old Joanna, who battled with body-shaming throughout her childhood. With dedicated efforts and strong willpower, she not only shed all of the weight in just 6 months but also became a model.
Since she was overweight she used to get a lot of hate from her family and friends. As a bullied teenager, Joanna decided to take her own matter at hands when she was 16, so she went on a diet from the rich calories to fruits and vegetables. That is when she started leading a healthy lifestyle and included exercising in her routine.
Her breakfast included a cup of orange juice, some fruits and two slices of wholemeal bread with butter.
She used to have a portion of brown rice with healthy side dishes like steamed chicken, fish, eggs, tofu, and salad in lunch.
Joanna used to have her dinner latest by 7 pm which usually included one chapati with some curry and vegetables and a cup of green tea.
She usually eats everything that she feel like without any regrets and used to work out more the following day.
Whenever she feels a little demotivated, she thinks about all the comments and taunts that people showered on her and she aims to prove them wrong. She always strives to make herself a better person than before.
Everything is possible if you put your mind and soul to it. Nothing beats the joy that comes after working hard and achieving your goal. You might have a lot of stretch marks or even loose skin at times, but you should be proud of it. You are a tiger who just earned his stripes, so you might as well flaunt it.
