My Weight Loss Cured My Depression  | BRAND NEW ME

My Weight Loss Cured My Depression | BRAND NEW ME

Lidia: At my heaviest I weighed 201 pounds. I was depressed, I would say to myself,
“I look like trash.” I had no self-love. I felt like I could
never lose the weight. Until one day I decided to start doing something about it. I have lost over 60 pounds. I am currently weighing 142 pounds. After my weight loss journey, I was left with excess skin. I don’t like it, but I’m proud. Today I will be meeting
my friend Jessica, and for the first time ever, she is going to
see my loose skin. Jessica: I’m ready… Lidia: I was never really
overweight growing up. Until I got married and I had my first kid, that’s when my weight started going up. I was a couch potato all I did was eat, watch TV, take care of my kids. That was pretty much
my daily routine. I was depressed, I was sad all the time I never wanted to go out because… I always had trouble
finding what to wear because this didn’t look good or that didn’t look good. I didn’t like what
I saw in the mirror and
I felt like I could never lose the weight. So that made me more depressed, I would always say to myself, “Oh I’m not worth it,” “I look like trash.” I had no self-love. My life back then always consisted of two words. And that was, “I wish.” “I wish I was fit,” “I wish I was healthy,” “I wish I could look like that girl,” “I wish I could wear those jeans,” “I wish I could wear that top.” It was so much wishing that I, never did anything about it. Until one day I said,
“stop wishing for it,” you know? “And get to it,” “like start doing something about it.” I started by counting my calories, I did portion control, I eliminated all the foods that were bad and I exercised daily. At my heaviest I
weighed 201 pounds, and I’m currently
weighing 142 pounds. I have lost over 60 pounds. After my weight loss journey I was left with excess skin. I don’t like it but I’m proud because it tells a story that I was able to lose the weight. Today, I will be meeting my friend Jessica and for the first time ever she is going to see my loose skin. I have decided to embrace my loose skin, so I can send a message
to other girls that it’s okay. That nobody’s perfect. Jessica: Hey Girl? Lidia: Come in. Lidia: Are you ready to see me, in a sports bra?
For the first time? Jessica: I ‘m ready. Lidia: Let me show you, Jessica: I’m ready. Lidia: Don’t get scared, Jessica: I’m not. Lidia: And this is what
my loose skin looks like. I know, I know it looks bad. Jessica: Girl, no. No. Lidia: What do you think? Jessica: That’s your
journey right there. Lidia: I know,
I know it’s just … Lidia: Its just you know hard. Jessica: Thank you for
sharing that with me. Lidia: You’re my best friend so I wanted you to see you know, the real me. Jessica: Her
transformation is amazing. Knowing her from
years back you know, the way that she
looked back then to how she’s changed. I mean, she inspires me. Lidia: I have so
much more confidence I’m no longer depressed, I’m proud of myself, I feel great. Gadiel: My mom looks really different, she looks stronger, and she looks more beautiful. Lidia: He approves. Lidia: I would tell people who are trying to lose weight to just go for it. To… stop wishing, and do something about it. If loose skin is what’s holding them back, like don’t let that be an excuse, you know, not to start your journey.

    Eat paleo and you can still be a couch potato and still drop weight.
    Iโ€™ve been doing it 7 years

  • gitsurfer27

    She's so beautiful, seems like such a kind soul as well.

  • Matt ST2

    Pretty girl.

  • Andy Z

    How long it took you to lose all that weight ?

  • TruHill

    It's so refreshing to see a story similar to mine. Lots of other stories people were overweight as children, but hearing of someone who lost herself, became depressed, and overcame her depression and to control of her life is so motivating and inspiring! Makes me feel like I can continue doing my best and I'll see results ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Claribel Sanchez

    Go Lidia ๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŽ‰

  • omblae

    She looks great, I mean the loose skin should be worn as a badge of pride. She looks absolutely great now

  • Y ST

    Your loose skin is really not that bad… I thought it would be shocking but it's totally not ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Good job! I wish you all the best.

  • Y ST

    Take a pill of Cod liver oil (in pill to avoid the taste ๐Ÿคข)
    A friend was afraid of stretch marks for her second pregnancy (cause the first one was devastating)…
    She took pill of cod liver oil and didn't get any stretch marks!!
    Why not to try?

    Dermarolling your lose skin might help. Check this video out:

    Also, I wish the video told us when she started and when she reached her goal (how long it took to lose the 60 lbs.), how often she worked out and a rough idea of what her daily diet was.

    Love her energy and determination. A lot of times, for me, I get in my head about not knowing how to work out. I get fixated on not being a technique-savvy person so I just decide to skip working out when I'd love to be able to do multiple routines to keep it interesting. Love these types of videos!
