For a while now I have really been trying to pinpoint what I have done differently to not only lose weight but keep it off permanently.
For example, if you are used to eating burgers and pizza ¬†every night then try to immediately change to eating fish and steamed veggies, you are more likely to give up. If you are eating unhealthy, you are most likely eating things like Egg McMuffins, hash-browns and orange juice. If you are eating unhealthy for lunch, you may be eating hamburgers, french fries and a Coke. I have fibromyalgia and people say I’m too hard on myself about my weight because it can make exercise hard. I’ve been off the wagon for a bit and needed some inspiration and your site is the first place I came.
I’ve watched your clips for quite some time now and you seem like such a positive, genuine and kind person Keep up the good work with everything, you are truly amazing! It?s been a while since I started on diets, but after all I didn?t make it, I got bored, etc. I really like your diet plans, but I’m just ot strong enough to not eat candy or chocolate or unhealthy food. I recently managed to lose 12 kilos (about 27 pounds) for my wedding by changing the way I ate, I was wanting to lose more but didn’t get there. Hi Marlena, this is my first time on your blog and from what I’ve seen it is Awesome.
Thank you so much for sharing how long it has taken…I started about a year ago and it is so frustrating not seeing the results I so desperately want. I have lost a total of 110 lbs myself I was at 280 lbs and I’m currently 170 lbs it has taken me 1 whole year of kicking butt to get this far I have 20 more till I reach my goal but reading other peoples journeys inspires me to push harder! I just came across your site and wish I had seen it earlier, I never leave posts, but you’ve inspired me and wanted to take a few minutes to thank you.

This has been the secret to success for me, especially after years of trying every diet known to man.


If you want to jump up to the average level, then switch to a chicken sandwich, baked chips and a diet drink. Some unhealthy snacks would be chips, candy, snack cakes, etc… To move up to an average level, switch to baked chips or crackers.
You don’t need a fancy gym membership or any special equipment, you just need to get out and exercise.
I really, really admire your level of commitment and dedication to strive for a healthy way of living! Now I started again and reading that other people suffered like me, looks like I?m not the only one with the same problem. I especially love how you dont have all these crazy diet plans (ie: no carbs, no sugar, vegan, juices- the all or nothing extreme) I like your categorization from un-healthy to uber-healthy!! Thank you for your transparency and being so real with all of us about your weight lost journey. I have been following your blog and you tube videos for a few years now, and never commented. I am also working on slowly incorporating better eating habits and have switched out my McDonalds morning fix for a healthier alternative. I have been so frustrated about my arms not showing my work, now I know it just may take another year! I am so happy that you had the courage and drive to set out and lose weight for a healthier you-and document it to boot!
A friend recommended your beauty videos to me a few months ago and I have been watching them and was really optimistic after that.
I did this with no gastric bypass or diet aids, I simply changed the way I ate until it became a lifestyle change. For those of you who are already eating on the healthy level and want to be uber healthy, you can eat scrambled egg whites, fruit, and water or tea.
To transition that to an average lifestyle, try things like low fat brownies or angel food cake. You have worked so hard and come so far, you should really be incredibly proud of yourself!
We all need each other, and losing weight can be a very emotionally draining goal because of all the pressure put on us to look a certain way. I have struggled with my weight my whole life, i think i have been every size fro ma 6 to an 18 lol..
Instead of a McMuffin with hash-brown and OJ, I have a scrambled egg with sauteed spinach and onions then add shredded cheddar cheese.


I 4 years ago tore my acl and now i have had reconstruction done and im back into running and lifting weights and such.
You’re such an inspiration to me personally as I met you years ago before MUG got so big and successful. You’re so beautiful inside and out (something I hardly ever say to anyone, unless I really mean it). If you want to be eating on the healthy level, try eating sugar free pudding with fruit on top or yogurt with granola. I know you probably hear that pretty often, but I just wanted to personally thank you for being so public with your change.
It’s people like you that motivate us to start our own weight loss journey, and even more helpful, you encourage us to stay committed. I still have my morning coffee, but during the day I drink a large (32oz) glass of bottled water and OJ mixed. I already rescheduled once and am afraid even if I reschedule I still wont lose the weight. I have been overweight my whole life and I never thought I could do something that drastic. One thing over those 4 years I had put on weight and and large portion in my stop and my hips. I want to lose weight for health reasons, because otherwise, I’m going to need surgery again, and I don’t want to go tru all of my misery again! I feel that I may get more motivated after my surgery but I don’t want to throw away my money for not having any will power. The main thing is to make your body work- if walking seems easy for you, then switch to jogging or bike riding. But my question to you, is would you recommend or what did you do to help in your success in getting a flatter stomach? I have tried dieting before but it gets depressing and I end up reverting back to bad habits.
Some of my most significant changes have been: learning how much of an emotional eater I was, learning how food fuels or sabotages our body, portion sizes!!!
Thanks for sharing so many strategies to be successful with this battle of being healthier!
