I lost over 120 pounds in just under a year — here are 5 weight loss tips that worked for me – INSIDER

  • Certain weight loss tips that work for one person might not work for another.
  • Here, author Jennifer Still lists five ways she approached dieting and exercise that helped her lose over 120 pounds in just under a year.

I’ve struggled with my weight all my life, but as I moved further into my thirties, something clicked in my brain and I realized that when it came to getting my health on track, it was now or never.

Just under a year later, I’ve lost more than 120 pounds and am pretty close to my goal weight.

It hasn’t been easy and it’s a journey that’s far from over — it certainly is a lifestyle rather than a quick-fix diet— but understanding these five things helped me out along the way.
