Once again we want to remind you that healthy living is possible for everyone! That’s why we at SweatCor are excited to share another story of success that will remind you that you can do it!
Joshua Lambert is 23 years old and lives near New Orleans, Louisiana. He connected with us at SweatCor shortly after our Biggest Loser journey and has truly chosen to take control of his health. All of us can be inspired by this story of a great young man!
It all started back in September 2015 when I started trying harder to get healthier. I was 330 pounds back in June of 2015 and now I’m 245. I always tried diets and they never worked for me because I would get discouraged easily but I wouldn’t call what I’m doing a diet, I’d call it living a healthier lifestyle. My dad, family and friends have been a huge support system for me.
Reasons I chose to change:
1. I wanted to get healthier so I could feel better about myself. I now can be around and enjoy my family more because I no longer lack confidence to be around anyone due to being heavier. Read More
I like to be in control. I like to be the leader. The one in charge…making decisions. In any given situation, I find myself gravitating toward that position. It is my personality. My nature. But there is a problem…I’m not in control. There are circumstances that I have no say so in. On a daily basis, I find myself in situations that I cannot dictate the solution.
When I find myself in those places, there are really only two possibilities: 1) I leave the situation or 2) I embrace someone else’s leadership. Read More
If I’m really honest with you, I have to say some days I just don’t want to keep trying to focus on my health. Some days are harder than others, sometimes those days drag into weeks and that is when I sometimes reevaluate my decision to keep at it.
When I’m struggling, I think about one of the most common questions I get about my time on The Biggest Loser, “Would you do it all over again if you had to?” Every single time, I answer with a strong YES! The pain (mentally, physically, and emotionally) during those 6 months was worth every minute because it now means I live a life I never knew existed. Nothing makes this more clear and is a better example than this summer… Read More
Hola! Ruego para cada uno si esta haciendo bien!
(Hello! I pray you are all doing well!)
Vacation time is here! It is great to relax and have some well deserved fun time. But this doesn’t mean we sacrifice eating healthy. You CAN stay healthy while on vacation. It is okay to enjoy some foods that you don’t normally eat or have a special dinner out but if you do this for every meal you will sacrifice your health while on vacation.
You can still stay on a healthy diet even while away from your normal routine. Don’t forget to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and go light on all the carbs. Plan your snacks wisely. Since many of you are like me, I thought a list would be helpful! Below, I have put together things I take with me just in case I can’t find them while on vacation. Read More
