How this mother-daughter trio lost a combined 154 pounds


One of the biggest challenges when it comes to weight loss is finding a method that works for you. Food and workout regimes that are a success for some, can often prove useless to others.

A woman named Keila proved that idea during a combined weight loss effort with her sister and mom. Paying attention to their fitness levels and health requirements, each of the three women found a technique that worked for them.

Now, a year later, the trio has dropped a whooping 154 lbs in total and couldn’t be happier.

Keila, who documents the family’s journey on Instagram, credits running and healthy eating for her transformation. She says her sister is doing Weight Watchers, while her mother sticks to walking and watching her diet.

“This goes to show ya that no matter your circumstance and age it can be done!” the mom of two captioned the before-and-after. “No excuses y’all. The biggest and scariest decision is the decision to try… You are more capable than you think. Take that leap!”

In her post, Keila says she’s personally lost 55 lbs since taking on a healthier lifestyle in 2017. She frequently shares images of her meals, which feature healthy swaps like zucchini noodles and coconut aminos.

I look at pictures like the one on the left and I just can’t believe it. I believe I weighed about 215-220 lbs there. Yep. I’m letting that sink in……… I also look ages older. If you would have told me that I would be running for fun, eating healthy and be in a better state of mind I would have probably laughed in your face. But guess what… Today I weigh 155 lbs , I’ve run a half marathon, I run for fun, I enjoy eating healthy and I’m more outgoing. All accomplished in 15 months. Say whaaaaaat. Lots of change can happen in a year. Quit saying maybe tomm. Tomorrow adds up and by the time you know it a year has passed. That was my dilemma. One day I decided enough is enough. I feel like crap, I’m depressed, I’m not in a happy place. If I don’t change nothing good will happen. I wanted to give up so many times but persisted. I’m STILL working towards my goals! Would you be happy to be stuck in the same place a year from now? If not commit to change and surround yourself with positive and supportive people. Put the work in and don’t accept anything else. Prioritize yourself. YOU are worth it! ❤ #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlossaccount #weightlossprogress #weightlossjournal #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandafterpic #beforeandafterpics #beforeandafterpictures #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgoals

Keila speaks openly on how running changed not only her body, but her frame of mind. “Most of you know my story… Married, two kiddos, fluctuating weight, miscarriage, more weight gain, depression, anxiety,” she wrote in her candid post. “What most people don’t realize is that I LOVE running because, I believe, it saved me.”
