Being over my ideal weight made me feel self-conscious and affected my confidence. I found inspiration through Reddit weight loss stories, and my journey began. I discovered helpful tips, motivating success stories, and support through various health communities. One such post that caught my attention was…

The Journey

Jlbrewer0045, a 23-year-old, 5’3” female, started her journey weighing 210lbs. She shares in her post how she lost a significant amount of weight by first doing Insanity, then by weight training three times a week. Ultimately, she credits the Keto diet as the significant factor in shedding 55lbs.

The Diet

Jlbrewer0045’s success was mainly rooted in the Keto diet, which is a high-fat, low-carb diet. With numerous research studies, the Keto diet has been proven to aid in weight loss. Also, it has been found to reduce risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and some types of cancer. It is vital, however, to talk to a registered dietitian or physician before starting this or any other diet, to determine if it is safe for you.

The Goal

Jlbrewer0045’s original goal was around 145lbs, but now she aims to lose more weight to achieve her desired look. A flat stomach is her ultimate goal, and she continues weight training and following a Keto diet to get there.


Jlbrewer0045's story encourages us to take the journey toward a healthy weight, regardless of where we are starting. Along the way, finding inspiration, discovering helpful tips, and receiving support can make a world of difference. Remember, diet and lifestyle changes should be undertaken after seeking medical advice. However, with patience, dedication, and support, anyone can achieve a healthy weight.
