Name: Mykerah Z.
From: Stevens Point, WI
Lost: 77 lbs

“From the time I woke up, to the end of the day, I was in pain and felt like I was too heavy,” recalls Mykerah Z., describing life before her recent weight loss transformation. “I didn’t know that I was insecure before, but I see it now because I feel so much better.”
After experiencing asthma problems and noticing her health deteriorating, Mykerah decided to take control of her weight and sign up for a HealthyWager. “I knew if I was doing something for a year and a half, it would create a lifestyle change.”
She bet $50 for 18 months that she would lose 75 pounds. Mykerah conquered her bet, losing 77 pounds and winning $2,935.06 (that’s a $2,035.06 profit)!
As someone who once declared herself a sugar addict and would rely on gas station sweets to treat stress, Mykerah has since cut out sugar and grains completely from her diet. Meal planning, logging her food and aiming for a low-carb diet has helped her shed those 77 pounds. In addition, changing her mindset to look at food as fuel instead of a solution, has led her to a more physically active life. Instead of sugar, Mykerah now turns to the gym to sweat out the stress. “Now, I don’t go more than a day without exercising, especially because I want to see my friends there!”
“If you want to lose weight and have a hard time staying motivated, [the HealthyWager] is great. This challenge kept me focused. Even if I had a weekend where I ate whatever or didn’t exercise, I got back on track quickly because I was always thinking about the challenge.”
Congratulations on your incredible weight loss success and huge cash win Mykerah!
