Rebecca-300x200

RebeccaI have been overweight my whole life. My family members have suffered with obesity as well. Some even going as far as to having a gastric bypass. When I was in High School, I started on the "Diet Journey." I started with Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, and Weight Watchers. I have tried them all. Maybe I would lose a little here and there, but would always gain it back. When I was about to get married…I found the most beautiful dress, but they didn't make it in my size. I was a size 18, 180 pounds. I was devastated.

I just couldn't find the motivation to "get started." I was depressed. I would sit for 6-8 hours a day playing video games. I was terrified of gyms and thought that working out was uninteresting and no fun!  That Christmas, knowing my love for video games, my father gave me a Wii. I went to the store and found an amazing game called Just Dance. I was only able to  make it through 1 or 2 songs in the beginning. I started to notice that I was losing weight, but I was tired a lot. That's when my friend introduced me to Celsius. I had one sip and was hooked! It tasted amazing!!!! 20 minutes later I started to play my video games and OH MY…I was a dancing queen!!! I was able to push myself harder and longer.

I look at the things I use to lose weight as tools. The most important tool for me is Celsius. Celsius is the first thing I grab in the morning, I skip the coffee now. I monitor the calories I burn daily and calories I intake. Video games are my last tool. I definitely notice a change when I don't have Celsius in the fridge. It really gives me the motivation and energy to start playing my video games. I also have another Celsius throughout the day just to give me a little pick-me-up.
It has been almost a year now since I started my journey. Right now I weigh 126 lbs and I am a size 6. I still have about 10 pounds left to go. I get up and move everyday now with the energy Celsius provides for me and do something active. Anything! I have gained confidence and I now know that I am capable of accomplishing anything! I just had my last sip for the morning. Time to blast the music and dance! Thank You Celsius!

My father showed me his Wii Fit Plus.  I was amazed.  It lit the spark that I needed.  I got a Wii and found an amazing game called Just Dance.  I was only able to make it through 1 or 2 songs in the beginning.  I started to notice that I was losing weight, but I was tired a lot.  That's when my friend introduced me to Celsius.  I had one sip and was hooked!  It tasted amazing!!!!  20 minutes later I started to play my video games and OH MY…I was a dancing queen!!! I was able to push myself harder and longer.

Personally, The Green Tea Raspberry Acai is my all time favorite!

The most important thing I have learned about losing weight is that you need to find what you enjoy doing.  Do you like to run?  Play baseball?  Play video games?  In my case, it's dancing and video games!  You don't have to workout in a gym to lose weight.  You just have to start somewhere even if it's just a walk down the street.  I also learned that diets don't work.  I eat what I want and I just make switches.  There is no perfect diet.  I like burgers…So I eat turkey burgers.  Instead of chips, I eat edamame with sea salt.  Switches, that's it!
