Why did you start training?

What was your proudest moment?
“A key moment for me was when my clothes went from tight to baggy. The compliments I received from friends and family members also confirmed my results. And when I finally started measuring my waistline, the results astounded me. I could literally see my success.”
How has your weight loss success changed your life?

What advice do you have for those just starting their fitness journey?
“Never give up. Always think of your goal. It doesn’t matter how slow you go, just keep going. Because you’re still doing something and that’s better than doing nothing at all.”
