From Obesity To Petite Sizes: Young Woman Lost Half Her Weight Without Any Surgeries And Strict Diets

How did Melissa manage it?

Five years ago, the young woman figured it out. Her plan, which she continues to follow to this day, involves counting calories and balancing carbs, proteins, and fats.

As to the exercise part, the young woman follows a strict regimen. She works out 6 days a week. Although starting to exercise and doing it regularly wasn’t an easy task, Melissa remained committed to her goal and her efforts paid off!

Here’s how she described her progress:

I went to fitness classes wearing my maternity gym clothes and just stayed in the back trying to keep up. I was ashamed of my body but was determined to try my best.

After a while, I gradually moved to the front of the class. Then I moved onto cardio, and eventually weight training.

I'm fitter than I've ever been, and I can't believe my body can move the way it does now.

Melissa lost 65 kg (143.3 lbs.), and that’s almost half of her original weight! With the weight loss came the renewed confidence. A year ago, Melissa got married to her beloved man, Edward Mouawad.

She looks just incredible!
