Lost 36 Pounds Weight Loss Success Story
eDiets - The online diet, fitness, and healthy living resource
More energy... a slimmer waistline... fewer
pounds... healthier eating habits...
Kimberlee Armstrong is getting in the
joyous spirit of the holidays by making a list of her great dieting
accomplishments and checking it twice! Since joining eDiets last April, the
determined dieter has achieved all of the above while undergoing the
transformation from a stocky 170 to a slender 134 pounds.
Dropping 36 pounds from her 56" frame
has given Kimberlee plenty to cheer about this holiday. So in the spirit of the
season the 33-year-old accountant is playing Santa and generously sharing her
inspirational tale of weight loss triumph.
It all began with a simple photograph that
captured just how much weight she had gained over the years. Having been thin
most of her life, Kimberlee didnt recognize herself. Then, the other shoe
After a trip to his doctor, Kimberlee's
boyfriend Rob learned that he was plagued by both high cholesterol and high
blood pressure. The couple quickly realized it was time to take care of
business and eliminate the bad habits that were ruining their health.
Their major downfall was poor planning.
Because of busy schedules, Kimberlee and her beau often found themselves
throwing together ill-planned meals or dining out on oversized portions of
high-calorie cuisine. Either way, the end result was hardly a well-balanced
meal. What the foods lacked in nutritional value, they made up for in fat and
calories. But the fact of the matter was Kimberlee didnt know what
So she called in the cavalry and
turned to eDiets for proper dining and fitness guidance. What she needed was a
well-rounded program that would do the thinking for her. eDiets proved to be
the ultimate no-brainer.
You dont even have to
think, raves Kimberlee, whos known as KBERLEEARM around the eDiets
community. You get this menu so you know what you have to buy. You know
what you need. You come home at night and the menus are quick and simple. It
takes about 10 to 15 minutes to cook the meals. Theyre delicious and
healthy. Then suddenly you start losing weight.
Everything is very simple.
Kimberlee doesnt take any chances.
She follows the meal plan to the letter, eating only whats on her
personalized menu. Its a ritual that helps her avoid those tempting
treats that run rampant at the office during the holiday season. She's found
it's just as crucial while maintaining a healthy weight.
Throughout her journey, Kimberlees
will never waned, something she attributes to the constant support she received
both online and offline. Having her boyfriend on the plan helped in the sense
that she didnt have to watch longingly while he ate something different.
Instead, they made getting healthy a team effort.
Its very hard to try and eat
healthy when your partner is grabbing a burger and fries," she tells eDiets.
"Its nice having someone else make the same commitment at the same time.
We made a competition of it. The healthy competition paid off handsomely
for Rob who reckons he's dropped around 35 pounds!
But Rob wasnt Kimberlees only
supporter. She also had her fellow eDieters cheering her on to the finish line.
As an active participant on the Motivation Stations What I Did
Right support board thread, she bonded with a group of like-minded
eDieters, who had undertaken the same goals to get healthy.
The constant companionship kept Kimberlee
from ever feeling alone. No matter what she was struggling with, there was
someone there to dole out tried-and-true secrets for success. Checking in with
other eDieters also gave her the incentive to exercise on those days she lacked
When it came to fitness, Kimberlees
plate was full. From the get-go she made the commitment to get physically fit,
especially since her drive had always faltered in the past. She started with
just 10 minutes on the elliptical machine and worked her way up from there.
Today, the apartment gym is a second home
to the exercise enthusiast. She does her cardio workout three to four days a
week, and her weight lifting regimen two to three days a week. Some days she
does the elliptical machine for 45 minutes. Other days she runs several miles.
Regardless of her regimen, the end result is still the same: more energy and
more restful sleep.
Between healthy eating and exercise, the
extra weight has melted off Kimberlee, who admits she now has trouble finding
Im a size 4 now and its been somewhat
challenging, not that Im complaining," she says. "Its actually fun being a
small size because you can buy almost any style and youre not limited by, does
this look good on me? or is it flattering? or can I find it in my size?
Of course, the answer to all of the above
is yes... yes... and yes! Today, Kimberlee looks and feels better than she has
in years, thanks to her will and the eDiets way. Looking back, Kimberlee says
she'd probably be even heavier if she hadnt linked up with the world's leading
online weight loss program. Its a thought that scares her.
Youve only got one body. Your
health has to be the most important thing. Once its gone, its gone.
You dont get it back.
