Meet Gabriella Waller, 26, from Basingstoke, England and this is her amazing transformation story!
Before Gabriella’s Transformation
Before my transformation I felt really miserable, and could not find anything what would me me happy. I used to play professional handball back in Hungary, but when I moved to England 4.5 years ago I had to give that up because I haven’t found any team near by.
I found happiness in food and eating a lot every day and night. Slowly I have started to put on weight and had to buy bigger and bigger clothes. I started from a size 10-12 to a size 18. Food made me happy andI didn’t care about how I look.
Gabriella’s Amazing Transformation Story
At the beginning of 2015 one day I was sorting my clothes out and found an old pair of jeans, size 12. I got completely shocked and couldn’t stop crying. That was the point when I realised that I got huge. My friends and family tried to tell me that i got bigger but I never really believed them.
I have started to watch workout videos on youtube because I kew that I have to do something about myself. Also started to go for a longer walks and slow jogs around the pond near by. I haven’t signed up to the gym because I felt completely ashamed about my look and was scared that other people going to stare me at the gym.
Around April-May time I have signed up for the local gym. They have a ladies only section and thats where I started to go slowly. I have downloaded a workout app to my phone and did that plan. I have started to lose weight slowly but steadily.
Also I changed my diet completely. I having 5-6 small meals a day and I make sure that I have enough protein in my diet and less sugary and ready made foods.
In January I took a photo about myself and every other month I did a new one. When I feel a bit let down or lazy I just open the “before” photo on my phone and I see where did I start. This reminds me that I never ever want to be back there.
Also I love taking lots of photos about my meals and workouts and share it on Instagram. This keeps me motivated because I can see all the love and motivation I get from completely strangers.
I’m not at the end yet. I have started to attend pro wrestling classes a few months ago and one of my goal is to debut as a pro wrestler. But for that I have to be healthy and I have to be the best shape in my life. This keeps me going. But I know for sure when I will reach that goal I will set other ones. But firstly I want to be the best pro wrestler I can be. Also I do love healthy eating and working out. Hopefully one day I can give advise to other people about healthy weight loss and tips about working out.
My transformation made me feel really good. I have an incredible amount of energy and I fell better in my skin. My friends and family told me that they have never seen this happy before.
Gabriella’s Advice For You & Your Transformation
I always read lots of transformation stories and thought that its the easiest thing in the world . But its not.
I’m really proud that my old self was capable to change. Committed myself to a new routine and new lifestyle. Without that dedication and fight I would be here today.
Everybody is capable to transform . It won’t be easy but with lots of small steps its achievable. And when you are off track after a crazy weekend you still can continue the route on the next day. One bad day won’t ruin anybodies journey.
My favourite motivational quote is : “ What happened yesterday no longer matters. Today is an other day so get on track and move closer to your dreams and goals.”
If I could do it you are capable to do it as well.
