Like Tanya Rybakova, 25 years old who was 238 pounds (17 stone) who was bullied for years, I isolated myself from the world and buried my life in my work. I had no social life. I had no dating life. I was barely living. I wasn’t bullied, but I was living on the exhaust of other people oxygen. That’s pretty darn low.
But, something happened to change my life forever and like me, Tanya lost over one hundred pounds, 112 pounds to be exact and looks simply amazing! All the people who bullied her have gotten in touch with her to call her beautiful.
What was Tanya’s secret? She got the help of a nutritionist and coach and a personal trainer. She’s had to have surgery to get rid of the excess weight. Her turning point was on prom night when her friends wouldn’t even talk to her.
She had tried diets in the past but wasn’t successful. Then, she realized she needed professional help. With the help of a nutritionist and trainer, she was able to lose the weight. It took her 3 years.
Her story is so similar to mine. My lose skin was my breasts and stomach. Like Tanya, I tried to live with it but, I almost felt more isolated with the lose skin then when I was heavy, so I decided to have breast augmentation. I still need a tummy tuck and will get one as soon as I can take the time from work to heal.
What I admire about Tanya is that she didn’t keep struggling. She realized she needed help and reached out to get it.
There are so many people who think they can do this journey by themselves. Some do. Yet, I know for a fact that they have more body fat than they realize because most people don’t know how to measure their body fat, they don’t know how much protein they need for their body and body type, nor do they know where they are in regards to their lean body mass.
Why is this important? Because if you lose too much muscle, your metabolism slows down, you are still ‘over-fat’ which is unhealthy, and if you do go back to eating poorly, you will gain back what you’ve lost plus more!
In addition, it more than about what you eat and how you move. It’s about changing your mindset. The next difficult hurdle after losing the weight is keeping it off. You have to learn how to go through every life difficulty and not use food as a stress reliever.
That’s the real test! In the meantime, Tanya is enjoying her thousands of followers and sharing her journey with the world! So What’s your excuse? What’s keeping you from doing the same thing?
