"The most challenging aspect of my weight-loss journey has been to push through the seasons when you're not motivated to do what you need to do to lose weight," Kristina said. To stay motivated, Kristina said she made three simple promises to herself. "The first was that I would not quit WW ever again . . . I [also] made the commitment to stick with two of the major components of the WW program that I've found to be instrumental to my weight-loss journey: tracking my food and going to meetings every single week," she said.
Kristina said she's been able to maintain her weight loss because of "this consistent accountability to myself and commitment to never give up on myself ever again."
To stay motivated, Kristina said she has a support group of friends and family who encourage, motivate, inspire, and help her when she needs it.
One of her biggest nonscale victories is being to able to travel with ease. "Between walking around and lugging your stuff through the airport, I would be out of breath and hot and sweaty by the time I got to the gate," she explained. That doesn't happen anymore. Kristina said she used to struggle to walk down the aisle of the plane and be comfortable in her seat, but that's also changed.
"The biggest nonscale victory for me along this journey is a renewed sense of confidence, happiness, and a bright and bubbly personality," Kristina said. "I want to go out and have fun with people. I want to take selfies and be in pictures. I want to live life to the fullest," she said.
