Reader Success Story Running Helped Me Lose 130 Pounds

By April 4, 2014

Follow me on:

"It was time to do something for myself," says reader Juli, referring to the moment she realized she wanted to lose weight. "I'm a stay-at-home mom who raised two boys, but now the nest is empty and it's time to get healthy so I can travel to visit them."

Juli put her weight loss plan into action by starting with food changes. She learned to eat breakfast and swapped out processed food for vegetables. "I learned to do without butter and sauces and now love balsamic vinegar and a little feta to flavor so many foods," she says.

After the weight started to come off, she started riding the stationary bike and running on the treadmill. Now a remarkable 130 pounds lighter, Juli jogs and/or rides six days a week. "But I don't get mad at myself if something comes up," she says.
