Starting the journey

AlexisTexas3591 shares how she went from being out of breath walking to class to running. She began running, which soon turned into an addiction. She advises everyone to start by taking before and after pictures to see the progress. For her, just listening to music helped her get into her workout.

Diet changes

AlexisTexas3591 did not change her diet much. The only change she made was not drinking alcohol as often. Furthermore, she shared that she doesn't eat much meat or fried food, and cooking using vegetables from her garden has helped her feel full without adding calories

Becoming an MMA ring girl

One of the commenters admired how AlexisTexas3591 transformed into a healthier MMA ring girl. She shared that she worked as a ring girl during weekends when there were Midwest fights. This was just a fun pickup job for some extra money. She, however, does not do this much anymore, as she has a job as an alcohol rep at a lake. She cut her hair short for functionality reasons, but the company she worked with preferred long hair. Still, she plans to return to her previous job this fall once she finishes her degree.

Words of encouragement

Everyone's weight journey is different, and what worked for AlexisTexas3591 might not work for everyone. However, her words of encouragement to try things out and take before and after pictures are helpful to anyone starting on this journey. She advises people not to stick to a treadmill or a track if it is not exciting, but instead, they can go on hikes, walks with dogs or download an app to track progress.


In conclusion, losing weight is a journey that requires discipline, motivation, and the determination to keep going even when it gets difficult. AlexisTexas3591, through her journey, found a way to keep herself motivated and encourages everyone to find what works for them. It is not only about the looks but also about the complete transformation towards a healthier lifestyle that leads to long-term mental and physical benefits.
