Jennifer Ellison from Brookside loses three stone in weight

The mother-of-two from Iowa, USA said: "I have dealt with severe depression and anxiety for most of my life until I changed my lifestyle. I found myself in a viscous cycle of binging because I was depressed, then feeling worse because I binged and repeat.

"I let that cycle continue for years and the weight just kept piling on. I didn't like the person I had become. It just wasn't who I knew I truly was.

"I didn't follow through with my commitments, I had no confidence and no discipline or drive. I felt ashamed at how far I had let myself go and masked those feelings with a pessimistic attitude and deflecting humour.


Then Abigail decided to change her lifestyle dramatically and lost 7st 2lbs in just 10 months.

The 26-year-old explained: "I changed my habits drastically. I recorded and measured all my foods. I drank USANA meal replacement shakes and took their vitamins.

"I did beginner home workouts or walking. I increased my water intake. I made visuals and set goals for myself; I was extremely consistent and didn't falter.

"I did whatever it took to keep myself motivated and accountable. Using the internet and social media; I taught myself correct form and learned new exercises. I stopped giving myself excuses."

Now, Abigail weighs 10st 10lbs and is a UK size 6 a change that has made a dramatic difference in her every day life.

She continued: If you would have told me two years ago that I would lose seven stone, become a personal trainer and health coach, I would have laughed.

"My life went from sedentary to active. Where I once hid in the comfort of my own home, I now raise the bar for myself daily and I am constantly putting myself out there for new opportunities.

"I love myself in a way that I never have before and feel a true sense of self and inner peace. For the first time in too long, I am genuinely happy and excited for the future.

Before Abigail took charge of her lifestyle, she would binge on junk food. Now she mainly eats lean proteins, vegetables and fruit.

High-protein, low-carbohydrate diets are all the rage right now and for good reason. Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein and your body uses protein to build and repair tissues.

Additionally, she will drink three to four litres of water per day and steers clear of processed foods.

Abigail added: I do whatever activity brings me peace. Sometimes that means lifting weights at the gym and sometimes that means walks at sunset," she said.

"I knew I wouldn't stick to activities I didn't love, it's important to me that I truly enjoy my lifestyle and listen to my body.

Start with what you have; do what you can. I knew nothing, I had no plan. I started obese. I started broke. If you truly want something, you can't let anything get in your way.

"Cloud your mind with motivation, inspiration and encouragement. Stay focused on your goals and remind yourself why they are important to you every single day. It will always be you versus you; only you get to decide how successful you will be."
