I wasn’t always overweight in fact since I was a kid I have been extremely skinny and then moving to the US had a huge impact on my eating habits.

In the picture on the left I had lost almost 50 lbs and YES I was overweight … Because I did not workout and I was full of excuses. In the picture on the right you can see I went to the extreme and I lost a significant amount of weight because I became obsessed with my physique. Obviously I couldn’t maintain that weight because over exercising and eating fish/asparagus decreased my metabolism, resulting in many medical issues. By that time I was not a health professional (but I sure thought I knew it all).

 In the middle picture is where I am today…. I have never been so happy in my life… It took a LOT of work and dedication.  I learn my lesson by participating in fitness competitions and understanding that in order for me to be healthy I needed to disconnect from winning a trophy and to concentrate in being healthy. I learned that extremely low carb diets have damaged my metabolism and I had to change my diet to eat more calories.

 Currently I consumed more amounts of food that I did when I was overweight. I STOPPED caring about how I look and concentrated on being HEALTHY. This in no means shows I’m not human…. Yesterday I bought macaroons and ate 3 of them (like 60 g of sugar) do I feel bad? NO. Why? I exercise so much and I eat so clean that having one treat doesn’t mean It will ruin my diet. We all start from somewhere…. I wasn’t brought from heaven by flying unicorns and was not gifted perfect genetics. This has been the result of hard WORK!!! I hope to inspire at least 1 person with this.
