We all know that living a healthy lifestyle is not easy, at least not to most of us. From eating healthy to working out everyday, it could get not only tiring but stressful.
Paula Macedo began to realize her weight was an issue. She always felt that she was bigger than her twin, Lucy. When she gained 80 pounds during her 20s, she realized it was true.
Macedo was going to see her family in Portugal for the first time in 20 years and she was determined to look like she did when she was 18. With the help of her co-worker, Macedo embarked on a journey to lose the weight.
She started by simply walking more, whether it was walking up and down the hills in her neighborhood or up the flight of stairs to her apartment. Encouraged and determined, she kept up with her workouts. She also started eating smaller portions and cutting out unhealthy foods from her diet.
Macedo had lost 38 pounds before the trip, and a stunning 70 pounds before she even stepped foot inside a gym. She was more determined than ever.
She ended up losing a stunning 90 pounds, and went from 215 pounds to 125 pounds. Macedo feels better than ever and made it a habit to live a healthy lifestyle.
Please share Paula’s incredible journey!
