Meet carboverloader, a 24 year-old female who is 5'6" and weighs 160 pounds. Eager to shed her last few pounds, she shared her journey on Reddit to seek support and guidance from the community.
Her Weight Loss Regimen
Carboverloader’s mission was to lose five to eight pounds. She started by cutting out all non-vegetable carbs, including bread and potatoes. She also reduced her portions and ate until she was satiated instead of stuffed. She incorporated intermittent fasting and ate within a 10-hour window. She also exercised four times a week for 30 to 40 minutes per session.
Challenges Along the Way
Carboverloader said her biggest obstacle was snacking. She found it difficult to give up her snacks and had to learn how to control her cravings. Another challenge was finding motivation to exercise, so she mixed things up by trying various types of activity, including weight lifting and running.
After three weeks, carboverloader reported losing two pounds and inches around her waist. She noted improved energy, fewer mood swings, and clearer skin. She also appreciates the supportive community on Reddit, who offered advice and reminded her that weight loss is a slow, steady process.
Carboverloader’s weight loss journey showcases that small changes in habits can lead to huge results. Cutting out certain foods, controlling portions, and incorporating exercise can lead to long-term, sustainable weight loss. Although it is easy to get impatient with results, she reminds everyone to take their time, stay consistent, and celebrate little victories along the way.
