Taking Health Seriously
Whether it be to gain confidence or lower your cholesterol, losing weight can be a big step. Starting small can lead to some major changes, especially in the next slide.
New Year’s Resolutions
Many people take a leap of faith and purchase a gym membership this time of year. Although intimidating, you’d be surprised how quickly you adjust to gym culture. But you don’t need to leave home these days at all; you can find plenty of inspiration, right in your social media feed.

Massive Lifestyle Changes
Committing yourself to regular workouts and a stricter diet can be a challenge at first, but once you start to see results, the hard work pays off big time. But some people face major roadblocks, especially when it comes to their health.
Women who suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome — or PCOS — can experience hormonal imbalances that cause breakouts, facial hair, and even excessive weight gain. This condition can make it especially hard to lose weight, and one woman knows this all too well.
Years Of Struggle
A young woman named Mariana suffers from PCOS, and since middle school, she began rapidly gaining weight. She’s lost a total of 119 pounds in the last three years, and she revealed what pushed her to make a change.
Making A Change
“I remember like it was yesterday waking up on April 13th of 2015 and walking straight to the scale and thinking to myself what have you done?” Mariana stated, in reference to her weight before deciding to make a change. While on her journey, she discovered some helpful tips — these can be life-changing.
Mind Your Diet
Your food choices make a huge difference. “It all starts in the kitchen. Substitute the bad thing you love to eat for healthy alternatives because there are a lot of them out there,” Mariana revealed. The next tip is absolutely crucial!
“Drink a lot of water,” Mariana shared. Staying hydrated can keep you feeling full and your digestive system working properly. Mariana also urges, “do not starve yourself. Eat every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism going.” This woman’s last tip is something every health enthusiast needs to hear.
Everyone Is Different
“Everything does not work for everybody, so do what works for you,” Mariana stated. Despite all the obstacles you may encounter, continuing to push forward is all you need to do to achieve any of your goals.
