Weight Reduction Success: At 12 Years Old, Brooke Mennella Lost 90 Pounds.
Name: Brooke Mennella
Before Weight: 194 pounds
How I Gained It: I fought with my weight my whole life. I weighed in at nearly 200 pounds at the age of 12. I gained the weight as a result of peer pressure and anxiety of public school. I was never able to fit in with my classmates. I was picked on often, and I’d turn to food for comfort. I was embarrassed by my body, so I’d take my super-long hair and cover myself with it. I wasn’t physically active because I was so heavy and didn’t need to do anything. It ended up being a challenge for me even to go. I hated to walk or even get up from the seat.
Breaking Point: I could no longer bear my classmates being so unkind to me. The girls were catty and picked on me always, and I even fell upon death threats. My parents were afraid for my security and get me in an online accredited school. My family and I were also frightened for my health; I couldn’t live to be 200 pounds with no complications. My mom signed me up for a fitness center and got me a fitness expert.
How I Lost It: I enjoyed working with all the personal trainer and attending Les Mills and Zumba courses. Whenever that I walk into the gym I push myself to my limits. I enjoy every second of it. Also, I eat a high protein, low carbohydrate diet to remain in shape.
This precious weight loss Has shifted me to an entirely new man. I cut my hair, replaced my eyeglasses with contacts and possess a completely new outlook on life. Life itself is such a special present, and individuals should understand they should include diet and exercise in their day-to-day customs.
All of us have to begin someplace, and we should make little changes in the beginning. Keeping healthy is something which should be done no matter of age and how much a person weighs. If I can do it at the age of 12, so can other individuals, no matter their age.
After losing the weight, I got a solid internal drive to help inspire others. I fought with my weight my whole life and eventually was able to alter. I’m finally content with the way I look and feel deep inside my heart.
I’ve written a comprehensive publication documenting my fat loss, suggestions and nutritional preparation. I’m at present buying publisher. I’d like to help anybody I can. I’d like to a day be a Zumba and Les Mills teacher, along with a fitness expert, so I’m able to help children and teenagers lose weight. I would like to inspire children like me and help give the success that I realized.
