Health issues: fatty liver disease; fastfood-heavy diet
Although she was happy and confident in her body, she was shocked when she finally stepped on a scale. “I never in my life imagined that I would see a ‘3’ in front of my weight,” said Borojevic, who hit 304 lbs and had developed fatty liver disease from her fastfood-heavy diet.
She immediately cut out starchy carbs, refined foods, sugar and most packaged food. In a month, she dropped almost 20 lbs and started hitting the gym four to five times a week for weight training and cardio workouts. Now a year and a half into her weight loss journey, Borojevic is down to 165 lbs.
“It is SO IMPORTANT to focus on non-scale victories like how your clothes fit, how you feel, how many health issues you’ve reversed and saved yourself from and how happy you are!”
