A WOMAN who lost weight for both her physical and mental health has been described as an “inspiration” by her fans.
Her transformation after losing 63 pounds was staggering.
It wasn’t just the inches she lost – it has also knocked years off her.
Maya (@mayaaaboo) has been sharing the highs and lows of her journey with her 87,000 followers on TikTok.
As anyone who has ever embarked on similar self-improvement programs will attest, it is not easy.
Maya has been honest about her weight loss struggles on her TikTok.
But it was worth it: “I went from struggling to breathe walking upstairs to loving exercise,” she said.
In her recent post, she described some of the frustrations.
Sometimes the weight fell off, other times it just wouldn’t shift, and that’s when this woman had to dig deep and not reach for a comforting cookie.
“Plateaued multiple times,” she said of her weight loss journey.
“I was stuck at 160 lbs for over a month and 150 lbs for weeks,” she admitted.
In her post, she described her body measurements with well-earned pride.
Maya wore black gym trousers and a sports bra, and her raven hair was loose around her shoulders.
She flexed her muscles and captioned her post with her vital statistics: “Eleven months in. Before 200lbs now 137lbs. Height 5’ 6”, bust 29”, waist 25”, and hips 39.”
In total, she had lost an amazing 63 pounds and couldn’t have been happier.
Her followers were impressed, too.
“You are definitely motivation,” said one fan, while another thought: “You’re so beautiful.”
She gave hope for others also trying to lose weight: “Amazing job. Barely two months into my new body journey after a year of deep depression. I hope I reach your level.”
Finally, her dedication and hard work were admired by this viewer: “You are my inspiration. You look so amazing.”
