Counting calories

For the first few months, FightTheWillow and her brother counted their calories meticulously, until eating healthier became the new normal. This helped them stay on track and monitor their progress. However, this may not be the best approach for everyone, and it is important to find what works for you.


After establishing a healthy eating routine, FightTheWillow started simple exercise by following the Couch to 5k program. This helped her get into a routine and improve her fitness level. However, it is important to note that not everyone may enjoy running. Finding an activity that you enjoy and can commit to is crucial.


Seeing her progress kept FightTheWillow motivated. As she started losing weight and becoming fitter, she saw improvements in her appearance and strength. This kept her motivated and inspired her to continue working towards her goals.


FightTheWillow's weight loss journey serves as an inspiration to many. Her dedication, hard work, and patience are a reminder that weight loss is a journey, and not a quick fix. Everyone's journey is different, and it is important to find what works for you. By making small changes to your diet and exercise routine, progress is possible.
