Christine Carter, una joven de 28 años que vive en Dallas, Estados Unidos, perdió casi 70 kilos tras decidir cambiar su vida.
Carter llegó a pesar 125 kilos debido a una alimentación a base de carbohidratos y alimentos azucarados. Esto le había causado problemas de salud y debía tomar medicamentos a diario para evitar accidente vasculares.
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me! My name is Christine aka weightlosshero. In 14 months I have lost 150 pounds, fallen in love with the struggle of taking care of my body, and gained an exorbitant amount of confidence. . At my heaviest my hips measures 63″ around. That means I was 2 inches taller than I was big around. I went from being fat and happy—-to just fat (and miserable, depressed, etc.) . In August of 2014 I had the gastric sleeve surgery. I lost about 50 pounds from the restriction from the surgery-but began gaining it back because I didn’t change my diet/workout habits/mindset. . In June of 2015 I found my trainer at The Hero Training Center. They created a program for me that worked for me-both with my physical limitations and my limitations from my sleeve. . The biggest thing I experienced was an amazing psychological transformation. I tell people constantly that the before and after pics are great-but the biggest change is the one above my shoulders. . I hope my page can serve as encouragement to others. I like to post everything from progress pics, to food pics, to posts to make you laugh. . Thank you for following me as I continue to walk this road…
En noviembre de 2015 y gracias a una cirugía gástrica, rutinas de ejercicios y un cambio en su estilo de vida, logró bajar 68 kilos.
I will persist until I succeed. I will not let my emotions dictate my success. I will not let my failures shake my faith. I will continue to walk forward with the confidence, strength, and beauty that I have gained on this journey. It will not be easy. I will be tempted. At times, the easy way will feel better. But no matter the temptations I come across, or the road blocks in my way-I WILL persist until I succeed. Happy Transformation Tuesday.

Ella se sintió muy bien con su nuevo aspecto, pero su novio no opinó lo mismo y sintió celos de su figura. Christine optó por lo más sano y terminó la relación.
“Mi ex era muy controlador, me dijo que yo me estaba desgastando y yo creo que él quería que yo fuera gorda para que no lo dejara”, contó la joven al Daily Mail.
I get nervous to post a before and after picture in a two piece. I’m afraid. Because I don’t like the girl I used to be-and I don’t know her anymore. Why bring her up? Why expose her to the world? Can I just shut her away forever? I can’t. Because too many others are currently that girl on the left. Battling to become more. Trying to find themselves. Trying to create a new life. I made it this far because the fire inside of me burned brighter than the fire around me. And the flame inside keeps growing. I know that one word or one picture can inspire someone to change their life for the better. Turn suffering to success. Turn your doubts into actions. Turn your dreams into plans. What goals are you trying to accomplish? What is keeping you from them?
