    I just wanna thank you for your helpful tips. I watched this video months
    ago when I was starting on my diet.
    It was really challenging for me at first but videos like this really
    inspired and motivated me. I’ve lost over 20lbs and now I’m at 103lbs.
    I’ve never felt so confident and beautiful like I do now.
    Thank you again,
    Btw you’re so gorgeous


    you are so cute!

    I like the ‘one healthy meal/ workout at a time’ approach I will use that.
    Regarding the weekly weigh in that helped you; I have found that a monthly
    one is good for me as you are more likely to record a loss in that time
    span which reduces the disappointment factor, and binge eating risk, of a
    weight gain. Im really glad that your techniques are working for you and
    hope I look as healthy by christmas!

    Diet coke just has a lot of sodium; it keeps water in your system longer
    and is bubbly when can make you feel bloated. Also caffeine.

    Thanks for sharing your story! Very encouraging to hear. I like your
    approach – cut out the bad, take in the good – keep it simple – keep it
    disciplined. Looking forward to some of your food blogs as well. As I am
    on my own journey, it’s great to see others having success :-)

    Thank you. You have really inspired me.

    Thanks for your vid, it was really helpful. I just saw a video that
    mentioned that cheating is okay and realistic, but to see someone healthy,
    happy, and strictly no excuses was motivating!

    My highest weight was 185 pounds when I was 17, and though a bunch of ups
    and downs, I reached 140 by the time I was 21. I’m 22 now.

    But what worked during the past year was an entire lifestyle change, not a
    diet plan.

    I told myself: eat Fruits for breakfast everyday, eat natural foods
    including fresh protein and veges, and avoid everything processed and junk.

    I still may snack or binge on junk food, but when I just eat veges and fish
    for example, I feel lighter and more energetic etc. And now eat veges like
    brocolli and onions almost daily, just 2 years ago I would never touch
    veges at all

    We all die in the end, so I eat all I want. No diets/

    This is a very inspiration video. You can’t begin to see power that your
    presence has on the viewer. You are a testament to health and it shows that
    the things you’re doing are really helpful. Your hair is sleek and shinny,
    your skin is flawless, your spirit is up and full of energy and you exude a
    positive vibe that is contagious. Last year I went on a similar diet doing
    pretty much exactly what you did on my own, I just cut out the things I
    knew to be bad for me. I was very into power lifting and was 371lbs trying
    for a 600lb bench so I was in the gym every day for 1.5hrs. After I made
    that goal I went through a separation from my wife of 25yrs and my body
    began to fall apart or so it seemed. I started dieting and walking five
    miles a day and the pounds just started dropping off. Now a little over a
    year later I’m 240lbs and to be honest I probably lost too much too fast
    because I lost a lot of muscle also but still the weight needed to come
    off. Oddly I never saw myself as heavy because of being so into
    powerlifting but now that I’m 240lbs I can’t believe I once was 371lbs. The
    cost of the muscle and lifting was unhealthy in the end, at least the way I
    was doing it. Also you are so right about not being able to eat healthy in
    restaurants. I was eating fish and vegetables in a area restaurant until
    they told me that they pour lots of butter into the corn and cook the green
    beans with bacon grease to make them taste better. I eat fish, fruit, nuts
    and vegetables now from the store and organic when I can. I eat meat about
    once every two weeks and even then I get the Laura’s Lean Beef. So anyway,
    good for you, such a beautiful woman and good luck to you and your fiancé,
    so great that you’re doing it now when you’re young. Fantastic video!!!

    I’m very inspired by your story. I am in my own process as we speak and
    although I have yet to create a youtube account, I have created a blog that
    I’m hoping to gain a following on. Would you be willing to do a segment on
    some of your favorite blogs and include mine? Thank you for your great
    inspiration! Check out my blog when you get a chance. :)

    one thing i like to do keep my compromise with exercising is keep track of
    my daily workout routines by writing them down in a whiteboard and keep
    track of everything i did. in that way ill think twice to choose to not
    workout since i look at all the effort ive put into in the past. its kind
    of a psychological trick

  13. Jordan Cheyenne says:

    This is amazing, congrats on your progress! Thanks for all the tips 🙂 Im
    on a personal weightloss journey too. I have a new fitness and health video
    on my channel too, I hope you can come enjoy it! <3 Xo

    I cook my own meals full of vegetables, I eat out in a blue moon. I have
    take aways every few months. I bought hazelnut milk instead of low fat
    milk. I drink only water… My downfall is carbs since I love noodles and
    rice…. But I don’t lose weight. The reason is I don’t exercise much. Its
    lame coz I’m lazy with that…. Sigh I need a work out plan

  15. Roni Azuz says:

    keep up the good work!

  16. A Vega says:

    Great tips and advice. I’m subscribing. I want to lose 20 lbs so I’ll
    definitely use some of what you did into my diet. I just had my 2nd baby
    girl 8 weeks ago. I lost 20 from breasfeeding. So I’m now at 145, just want
    to lose a bit more, 15-20 lbs. I was hoping to see a before and after photo
    of you 🙁 Did i miss it? 

  17. ProVideoShows says:

    Wow, you go girl! You look lean and sleek! :P

  18. Mewa C says:

    eating out is a waste? You must be a chef then. It depends on where you go
    out to eat…

  19. Darcy Vawser says:

    I am 220 lbs, down 5 lbs in 2 weeks ultimate goal 150 lbs but surpassing
    200 and 180 (the weight I was in high school) would also be mini goals
    along the way. I am eating: serving size honey nut cheerios cereal with
    skim milk and fruit for breakfast, protein bar for snack, lunch all
    portioned meat, cheese, mayo, mustard, and spinach in a whole wheat wrap
    with fruit. Dinner is almost always 3 oz. lean meat, 1/2 cup rice, and
    veggie of choice. For dessert (because I used to sit down to a bowl of
    loaded ice cream) I have a sugar free Luigi’s ice cup thing. 🙂 I take
    either Sunday or Saturday as a reward day and had a microwave pizza in
    addition to healthy leftovers last night. (which made me feel horrible go
    figure!) 🙂 And for drinks usually water or sometimes skim milk. So this is
    the current diet, am I missing something? I don’t have the money yet to get
    a gym membership, so I run/walk 2 miles/walk three miles with dog on
    recovery days (2 a week I’d say?) but I HATE running currently dread it
    because it brings on: back pain, knee pain, lung pain, and the sides of my
    lower legs hurt. (lol what are they called?) So I’m looking to have my
    current diet+exercise plan reviewed and critiqued by someone who has had
    success. Any ideas? Thanks! Great video btw! :)

  20. C C says:

    I’m also 5 foot so curious to see how much you ate. I’m a bit rusty on cup
    measurements so if you could show the size of your meals would be nice.

  27. Aoife Angland says:

    Her sister is the lowest of the low!! All she is is bitter about her own
    life and feels the need to drag Sara down every chance she gets, she would
    want to look at herself in the mirror about what an ugly person she is
    before she comments on anyone else!

  28. Dayana Hernandez says:

    Sarah Is amazing. Her transformation is phenomenal. She shows me I could
    do anything, because I am also short. It is so inspiring
