Before and After Her 40 Pound Weight Loss!
Tracy Ippolito of Stratford, Connecticut, is what I would call a poster girl for healthy weight loss!
Prompted by her son’s engagement last September, Tracy was inspired to lose weight for the wedding. She had been on plenty of “diets” before, but decided to do it her own way this time; the healthy way! Taking advantage of her initial enthusiasm, she started with what would be a bold move for anyone: no alcohol. Encouraged by her results after a month, she added on another healthy habit; she gave up beef and pork, and started eating chicken breast and white fish instead. She likes to flavor up her dishes by playing around with hot spices. Next, she started adding lots of grilled veggies and salad to her meals.
She also drinks Bragg’s organic cider vinegar – 2 tablespoons with every meal. (This was new to me, so I’m including information about it here: Health Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar )
“I can’t imagine going back to the way I used to eat,” Tracy says. As you can see from the photos above, she looked absolutely fabulous for her son’s wedding in May! Better yet, she feels fabulous, too.
What did Tracy do right? She didn’t go on an unsustainable crash diet. She mastered one simple habit at a time. After a month of success, she layered on one more healthy habit. Then another. And another. Gradually and sustainably, she built a portfolio of healthy habits into her life. And now, 7 months and 40 pounds lighter, she wants to continue eating this way!
Looking good and feeling good! Congratulations, Tracy! You go, girl!
