What’s more, the woman is not getting her excess skin removed because she says it is proof of the fact that she has struggled and won against something big.
Lidia was never a chubby child or an obese teenager in her life. She started gaining weight after she gave birth to her first child.
Talking to Barcroft TV, Lidia said: “I was never really overweight growing up until I got married and I had my first kid that’s when my weight started going up. I was a couch potato.
“All I did was eat, watch TV, take care of my kids that was pretty much my daily routine; eat, watch TV, do chores.”
Such a lifestyle and living on a diet of only fast food and soda can lead anyone to be obese, and that’s what happened with Lidia.
She touched her highest weight at 201 lbs. before starting to transform her body for good.
Being extremely obese started to affect Lidia’s relationship with her husband and that was something she could never compromise on.
So she decided to take control of her life and joined weight training.
Just exercise was definitely not enough for Lidia to shed all that extra weight so she also shifted from junk food to a healthy diet, full of protein, veggies, and fruits.
All these factors led her to lose an impressive 59 lbs.
Lidia’s obesity had also given her depression which banished once she lost her extra weight. The drastic body transformation helped Lidia regain her confidence.
A negative effect of the weight loss was all the excessive skin left on Lidia’s stomach but she is happy with it.
Lidia says it cannot be a hurdle for her in achieving her goal of a perfect body. She says: “Don’t let that be an excuse to not change your lifestyle.
“Your loose skin will be part of your journey and will tell a story.”
