Weight-Loss Glory

One man's story of losing 110 pounds.

I lost 110 pounds in 2001 and have managed to maintain my weight for past 11 years. I had been obese from my childhood until age 25. The reason for me being obese was eating too much food always and eating too much junk food. I spread the message of good health through www.weightlossglory.com.

I landed in the hospital at age 25 with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Also my mother was a diabetic and suffered chronic renal failiure. I wanted to live a healthy life and not to suffer as my mother did, and those reasons motivated me to embark my journey of losing weight and moving toward good health.

I followed very slowly a healthy lifestyle of proper exercise, proper diet and proper rest as per my physical and mental capacity. I started walking daily and slowly incorporated rope skipping in my daily schedule of exercise. I gave up sugar and fried food and included fruits, vegetables and lentils as main part of my meals. I made sure to sleep at least eight hours daily.

The key to my success has been never compromising on healthy nutrition. Due to my work schedule, I missed out on my exercise schedules, but I made sure that I consistently followed a healthy eating pattern daily.

People do not believe I am the same person. I keep getting compliments. That keeps me motivated. All of my health parameters (blood pressue, cholesterol, for example), which were in the wrong range when I was obese are now in the right range. That keeps me motivated. Above all, good health and the feeling of happiness keep me motivated.
