How I Lost 28 POUNDS of FAT and 6 INCHES Off My Waist

54 505
This details how I lost over 28 pounds of fat, several inches all over my body, and 6 inches from my waist alone over the course of 6 months through diet changes and exercise. It goes over the rough meal plan I followed, types of workout routines I did, and other things I learned to help me lose the weight. My goal was firstly health, but also aesthetic.
I know this video is super long, but I didn't want to cut out necessary explanation, or the moments early on where I struggled- too often I think these fitness videos online don't paint an accurate picture of how difficult it is to really change bad health habits, and I don't want anyone else going through big changes to think they're alone in that regard.
I couldn't have done this without Steve Zim from A Tighter U. Please check him out and send him some zombae love:

You’re so patient to make that lengthy disclaimer. It’s kind of sad you have to explain yourself so much though, it reflects how judgmental and sensitive our society is. It boggles my mind that anyone would be criticized for working out and improving their health.

I cut sugar out of my diet for a few months, I didn't loose any weight, however it changed my taste buds so that natural sugars became super strong, so like for with bananas suddenly they seemed very sweet and flavorful and almost candy like when I always found them bland before.

So happy you still have this up 😍. I sort of needed to hear some of this today.
My weightloss/get-fit journey has taken a big pause this last 6 months (covid times 😶 No longer had time to think about me, let alone work on me. I lost at the very beginning due to stress & not eating, then gained back..but didn't loose/gain anything really overall) but I'm back at it now. 😁
Main things that have helped me with food is to eat more (yes, make myself eat More. I even have timers set to tell me to eat) and up my protein % (figured out that I averaged only about 10% of my diet being protein [even with eating a fair amount of meat/fish] & the goal has been/is to get it to 25%). As far as the workouts, we've found that I need low-impact cardio (for example: burpies=motionsickness/vomiting. Runnin/jogging= irreversible damage in heels & joints) & strength training geared towards hypermobility (or with my hypermobility kept in mind).

So true! It’s not right.. I get “shamed” and way more comments then invited, about my tiny size. I’m tiny, skinny, and I don’t really know why. I’m healthy. If I am unhealthy it would be my eating - I eat a lot. But I’ve had ppl tell me things like “here drink this protein weight-gain shake your need it” or, “you need to order the big meal” while being out eating with ppl. My jaw always drops because a) I’ve explained my situation (what I’ve told you) when they asked, and b) would they say the opposite to a large person?!!! No! I don’t see them telling larger ppl “you don’t need that hamburger”. It’s so messed up. Ppl really need to stay in their own lane.
You look great btw!! Happy for you!

Ayyyeee I didn’t know you were from philly! I should’ve known when you said Reese’s the first time & I didn’t blink twice cuz that’s how everyone I’ve ever met says it.
Anyway, this was extremely inspiring!! Thank you so much for sharing. I can totally relate to you—lovingggg sugar & carbs to a dangerous degree and not being able to get a slim waist. I’m gonna save this info to look back on.
I think these tips will really work for me and I’m soooo ready to get into shape for theeee first time in my life. I’ve been wanting to since 3rd grade when I swore I’d get in shape to be on the physical fitness team, but I kept putting it off and here I am almost 24 & just gained about 25lbs over the past few months 😅
Alright I’m over sharing, as always. Thanks again for this video. I truly want to feel good about myself for once in my life and you’ve given me a lot of hope just with this video. Congrats on your incredible progress 🥰

Is it me or when people lose weight they look older amd their wrinkles are more pronounced? I used to be skinny at amd I looked so much older, now ive gained like 30 pounds but my face looks so much younger and the wrinkles that were very obvious before are nearly gone now. Ugh. It sucks. Like a catch 22. I wish I was still skinny but with the same face as before

A personal trainer helped her shape her body but she said everything she did diet wise so as long as you’re a fairly active person and change how you’re eating I don’t see how not having a personal trainer means you can’t do something similar. There are personal trainers that post short workout videos on YouTube that have been a big help to me, there are also longer videos for things like yoga. Not having a personal trainer isn’t the end of the world, it would be nice but it’s not necessary

Pass the dribble to 6:35. I commend Steve Zim for being so accessible and willing to go on video with a nobody... Your title should include Steve Zim, for without him, this video wouldn't have happened.

What made this so much more motivational and inspirational is that Mykie talked a lot about the issues she faced with working out and eating especially. She spoke about what worked for her and that she had cheat days as well which makes you feel less guilty when you have one XD

thank you for sharing this video about your journey..... i remember doing all those work outs back when i was in school when i was involved with my cross training. only difference from then to this video was proper eating, you and i have a similarity when it came to eating and i totally saw a major difference when i didnt know about how to eat healthy. but i was able to have a healthy looking body. however that was way back then and now i know what will work for me as it did in the past, itll just take longer due to age did my body no justice lol
thanks again for the video, i love your content :)

I was doing everything just like you. Just when it started to work.... COVID-19 came.... Too scared to go back to the gym and fell off the diet wagon. Thank you so much for this video. I am motivated to start eating healthy again.
