The 24-year-old Haley Smith from Amarillo, Texas was an overweight student who got engaged to her high-school sweetheart.
The big celebration happened in July 2015. After seeing the photos, her feelings have never been the same.
She didn’t recognize herself in these pictures.
That’s when she pledged to lose enough weight to look sexier and more beautiful in time for the special wedding day.
Her motivation to lose weight went beyond the social pressure she got from the photos.
It was personal. She felt incomplete and not capable of doing many things like playing sports with friends and feel comfortable going on family vacations.
And the fight started. She was determined to feel better and do some changes in her lifestyle.
The first tweaks were no eating after 8 PM and limit take-outs to twice a week.
After she had shed a couple of pounds, she began jogging three times a week accompanied by strength training.
The thing that fascinated me the most, and I will include this in my work, is the rewards list.
She awarded herself for the good job every time the weight went down for 10 pounds.
It’s the key element in losing weight. She often posted photos of her healthy meals on Instagram.
The healthy eating got her famous on Instagram where she has over 38k followers that supported her through the journey.
She explained how proud that person is for how far she managed to come.
“I’m going to keep pushing! Don’t quit just because you are starting to feel comfortable with your body! Keep pushing, there’s always room for improvement and always new goals to crush!”
She can be your role model and motivator! Even Matt, her husband” looks perfect. He followed suit and supported his wife through the most difficult times and he lost 30 pounds.
All the things you can do for love and feel: well within your body are just heartwarming.
