Tridsaťosemročná Noelle Dawson pribrala tak veľmi, že keď sa postavila na váhu, ukázalo jej iba error... Rozhodla sa teda niečo so svojím telom, ale aj životom urobiť. Mamička piatich detí, ktorá pochádza z Nashville totiž zistila, že váha neukazovala čísla preto, že bola na ňu príliš ťažká. V tom čase totiž vážila 190 kilogramov.

Happy 3 year Fitaversary to me 💃 July, 29th is my 3 year Fitaversary 😱 and I have been so busy that I missed it! I have been through the wringer these last 3 years both mentally and physically. Today, I stand stronger than ever! Anytime I'm asked this question.... How did you do it? How did you lose 230 pounds and maintain it for the last 2 years? My answer? I transformed my way of thinking and focused on my mental health. I dedicate 30 min every day to myself! Whether it's walking/working out, listening to a podcast, reading a book, yard work or meditating. This is key to my success. I cannot stress the mental health enough! I assumed losing weight and getting healthy would bring me joy but quite the opposite occurred.I woke up after losing 230 pounds more depressed and lost than ever before. Why!?!? Why was I not happy??? Because I wasn't happy to began with. I couldn't expect to be happy at 180 pounds if I was unhappy at over 400 pounds. Focusing on self-care and self-love is what allowed me to maintain this success. Believing you are worthy and enough in this current moment will bring your dreams into fruition . Welll....that and hard work. Your mental transformation HAS to be BIGGER than your physical transformation! That is key to this journey ♥️ . I'm 4 months post-op with the brilliantly talented @alexgalvezmd 360 belt lipectomy with a butterfly lift, fleur de lis, reverse tummy tuck, brachioplasty, and breast lift/reduction. 🤸 Great news! I'm now working on my handstands again 😍 I'll be posting them soon! ******************************** My stepbet starts in 6 days 💃 Go to the link in my bio, comment below or shoot me a DM to learn more.

Noelle za túto svoju obrovskú nadváhu viní svoje detstvo. Kedysi bola totiž gymnastkou a mala veľmi prísnu diétu. Jej tréneri ju obmedzovali v jedení a prikazovali jej, čo má jesť a čo nie. Keď teda jedného dňa prestala športovať, dopriala si všetko, čo predtým nemohla.

#tbt 2010. This photo was taken moments after I humiliated myself with multiple failed attempts to land my 350 pound self on this super sized inner tube in front of friends and family. The face of depression can look different for everyone. For me, the face of depression was that of a happy person. A person whose put together and appears to be perfectly fine on the outside. I excelled at my job at the time and was productive. However, on the inside, I was drowning. I appeared happy to others, literally smiling, while I experienced a lot of depressive symptoms. I wished this lady knew she was worthy!I wanted a change in my health so desperately but with multiple failed attempts, I was beginning to give up. 6 years later I decided enough was enough and found what worked for me! I've released 230 Pounds in 14 months and I've maintained it for 2 years now. They say the hardest part is maintaining and though enjoying food in moderation can be challenging at times, I know I will never go back. I no longer allow food to control me and no longer abusing my body. I've learned a lot about self-care and self-love and how crucial it is for continued success in this journey. . Keep in mind.....The Expert has failed more times than a beginner has tried. We have to fail our way forward ♥️ . ************************ My Stepbet starts in 3 days 😍 Download the Stepbet App to join and search game code: Noelle.

Keď potom spoznala svojho manžela a kvôli jej nadváhe sa im nedarilo otehotnieť, začala jesť ešte viac... Nakoniec si adoptovali štyri deti a po týchto adopciách aj otehotnela. „Kvôli mojej nadváhe som mala problém chodiť, obuť si topánky či vziať moje deti kamkoľvek. Potrebovala som schudnúť aspoň sto kíl, ako som to však mala zvládnuť?“ spomína.

Happy #sameshirtsaturday 💪 I remember when starting my journey back in July of 2016 not wanting to take before photos. Before photos would be a reminder of another failed attempt at getting healthy. I don't have very many photos at my highest weight. At the beginning of my journey, I bought a 60 inch body measuring tape and started to measure around my hips. There was roughly a 12 inch Gap where the tape would not meet around my hips. I was devastated and put the tape up refusing to finish measuring. I was so ashamed and disgusted with myself. Here I am today down 230 lb in 14 months and in maintenance for 2 years. I am so upset that I did not get those measurements. I would love to see how many inches I have gone down. I cannot stress this enough.... Please take all the photos, please get in front of the camera, please learn from me. One day you'll be grateful you did. . How others see you is not important, how you see yourself is everything ❤️ . #happysaturday #saturdaymorning #extremeweightloss #beforeandafter #strongereveryday #lifestyletransformation #lifestylechange #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #fitfam #fitcouple #bustababaloo #youareworthy #youarecapable #grateful #losingweight #weightloss #weightlosscommunity

Potom sa však rozhodla vyskúšať keto diétu. Podarilo sa jej schudnúť neskutočných 88 kíl a to aj bez toho, aby cvičila. Vtedy si však uvedomila, že je na čase začať chodiť do posilňovne.

Práve vďaka diéte a cvičeniu napokon schudla až sto kilogramov. Mala však prevísajúcu kožu, ktorá jej stále sťažovala život, a tak išla na operáciu. Lekári jej ju odstránili a ona nemôže byť šťastnejšia.

„Teraz mám možnosť vidieť skutočné výsledky, keď som sa zbavila tej kože. Neustále ma to inšpiruje a motivuje, aby som na sebe stále pracovala,“ dodala.

From a competitive gymnast throughout my youth to becoming morbidly obese as an adult to now the most mentally and physically fit I've ever been. As a gymnast, my diet was very restrictive. When I became an adult, I began to enjoy food differently. It became a part of everything I did: if I was happy, I ate; if I was sad, I ate; if I was bored, I ate. My husband and I met when I was 23 and married at 27. For years we struggled with infertility and two failed adoptions which allowed my weight to spiral out of control. After the stress of finally starting our family with a successful adoption and finally becoming pregnant, I had reached 350lbs. I had tried almost every diet on the market, but always managed to gain the weight back. As a mother, all I want to do is be able to experience new and exciting things with them. As I continued to gain weight, my ability to be fully present with my kids was diminishing. I was tired all of the time, had terrible back pain from just walking and had to take breaks with my kids about every 10-15 minutes to catch my breath. There I was, like an anchor, holding my children back from enjoying their lives and robbing them of a mother they were supposed to have. The moment of change came for me when I decided to weigh myself and weighed in at 414 lbs. I immediately took control of my life by learning to transform my mental health. I embarked on a journey of hard work and discovered broken pieces of myself. I realized that I had so much work to do on myself in order to truly be happy with Noelle. I had to discover who I am, my pain, my weaknesses and heal them first. Growing up with an alcoholic/heroin addict father who was mentally abusive allowed me to believe I was not enough. Now that I've realized I am and have always been worthy and enough, I'm no longer eating my life away. Now, my focus is to use food to fuel my body and my lifestyle. My family and I are always outdoors and love traveling. My children have their mother back and I've added years back to my life.
