When it comes to weight loss journey, remember Slow & Steady wins the race! A Reddit user, 'sweetsweetanonymity', shares her journey where she lost around 14 pounds in 21 months through CICO (Calories In Calories Out), Muay Thai training, and walking. In this article, we will discuss her journey and learn some sage advice for those embarking on a weight loss path.

The Journey Begins

For sweetsweetanonymity, her journey began approximately 21 months ago at 144 pounds. She used the CICO method and kept herself accountable for everything she ate or drank. In addition to CICO, she frequently practiced Muay Thai, with her goal being to fight, and went for walks. At the end of her journey, she reached around 130 pounds and lost a total of 14 pounds.

Patience and Time

The Reddit user advises to give your body time to adjust to changes. She notes that when she first lost the weight, her hormones went crazy, and she started getting tons of acne for the first time. This only went away once she gained some of the weight back. The body needs time to adapt, and sudden weight loss can impact it negatively. Hence, patience and time are essential.

Walking for Weight Loss

For sweetsweetanonymity, walking made a substantial impact on increasing TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) and hence contributed massively towards her weight loss. Unlike intense workouts that often lead to a sudden increase in hunger, walking increases energy expenditure without impacting the appetite.

Muay Thai & Goal Setting

In addition to walking, Muay Thai training played an essential role in her weight loss journey. For her, Muay Thai training was not only about losing weight but aiming for a particular goal, fighting. Setting goals along the journey can help keep you motivated and passionate about your training, leading to better results. Lastly, remember that everyone's journey and body are different, so while sweetsweetanonymity's journey can inspire you, it's essential to find what works best for you and your body.
