Kiah Twisselman’s healthier lifestyle is a product of her energy and motivation. She decided on healthier choices and made minor changes to her routine. She dropped 120 pounds in one year.
Her predisposition to additional pounds connected to her poor metabolism and genetics. Nothing about her routine controlled her weight. Something changed after some time. At 285 pounds, she decided to start making healthier decisions.
She adopted “five tips to thrive” from Rachel Hollis, and decided on her pacing. First, she increased her water consumption, then started managing her eating habits. She started to monitor her food consumption, skipped food that didn’t “bless” her body. Finally, she added physical activities into her routine. She started regular work-out sessions and improved her sleeping habits to make more time for herself.
“I just started showing up and doing it,” Kiah wrote. “That’s it.”
Before long, she started seeing the results she wanted. This developed her passion, which pushed her to help others who are in the same predicaments she found herself in, back in those days. She decided to become a weight loss coach, sharing motivational videos on her website and social media.
“Everything we do, even if it’s moving the laundry over, is an empowered choice that we GET to make,” she wrote. “Life isn’t happening to us, friends. Life is happening for us. Let’s change our HAVE-to’s to GET-to’s and practice an attitude of gratitude.”
“I lost 100 pounds in less than a year,” she said later. “It’s been so challenging, so rewarding, and I wouldn’t trade this last year for the world.”
She understands that the hardest part was getting started. For this reason, she decided to do more and continue to motive others.
“If I can do it, you can ABSOLUTELY do it too,” she added. “Stop playing small, dream bigger for yourself, and keep showing up.”
