succesfull weight loss story

My secrets on how I lost over 40 pounds and how I kept it off for over 5 years!

I would like to say without boasting that in my entire life I have never looked this great, been so fit and toned, and felt as energetic and healthy as I do right now. I would like to share and reveal my little secrets on weight loss, my successful story of how I changed my lifestyle, and how I became “skinny and fit,” what people are referring to me today as. It is true that many people can’t believe that I actually lost around 40 - 45 pounds. Some people say that I have the body type that is not susceptible to weight gain. However, it is genetically possible to be overweight in my family based on my mother and grandmother. Coming to the U.S. for the first time actually made gaining weight a bigger problem for me. I worked as an exchange student in a summer camp’s kitchen along with other young men. Although we worked extremely hard, the kitchen was a paradise for all of us! You can’t even imagine coming to America and having access to all that unhealthy food. In the kitchen we didn’t think of it as unhealthy, but rather were amazed that they were brands of food we had seen on TV! We were not allowed to bring food outside of the kitchen, but at our work place we could have as much of whatever we wanted. To be honest, we took full advantage of this! It didn't end up well for any of us. More »

I'm Evgeniya. I live in a very nice and quiet area in Brooklyn, New York City.

Since I moved to the U.S. almost 10 years ago, I changed my lifestyle dramatically. I am so grateful for the opportunity to come to this country.

I've worked on different areas of my life and still continue doing it. The amazing thing is that it is never too late to start making changes in one's life. It only gets better!

I started this blog seven years ago when I was writing reviews about weight loss diets. Since my perspective on healthy eating and being active has changed and weight loss is no longer a concern to me, I decided to write about those things that I'm passionate about right now.

I do enjoy my beautiful life so much, and I'd like to share my experiences with other people. If this can help at least one person to make his or her life better, I'll already be happier. More about me and my story here.

Best of luck!
