As Kiah Twisselman has proven, the best weight loss results don’t come from “bean counting,” fad diets, or harsh food restrictions, but from self-love and patience. The 27-year-old started her journey almost 2 years ago when she read Rachel Hollis’ book “Girl, Wash Your Face.” She decided to follow Hollis’ plan of five simple habits: woke up an hour earlier, moved her body 30 minutes a day, drank half her body weight in ounces of water, and began daily journaling and intuitive eating. And what’s even more amazing is that she has done so without ever setting foot in a gym. Which also makes it a great go-to weight loss routine for the most likely upcoming quarantine!

She started out in October 2018, and by January 2019, she had already managed to lose 25 pounds; the result inspired her to set a greater, and more satisfying, challenge of losing 100 by the next October. Keeping in mind that you’re already reading an article about her, try to guess if she has done it. Spoilers! She did it, and what’s more, lost 120 lbs in total, way beyond her expectations.

At one point, she weighed 285 lbs

She began on Oct, 2018 and lost 25 lbs, which inspired her to achieve even more

The 6th-generation rancher opened up about her previous struggles with weight loss. She seemingly tried everything, from diets to restrictions, to radical lifestyle changes, but nothing seemed to work. The continual failures made her think that she just couldn’t do anything about it, that she got dealt a bad hand, or bad genetics.

She attempted her one last final hurrah after she realized that she wanted to become a better example of her own lifestyle. As she works in Beef Council and promotes beef’s health benefits to many influential figures and institutions, she felt hypocritical being in the shape that she was in. That’s when she read the fateful book that changed everything about her outlook.

She has become a real role model to many people around the world. The greatest change wasn’t in her body, but in her mind. When she slipped up before, Kiah focused on her failure, thinking that she always fails. Now, when she fails, she’s more willing to forgive herself, allowing her to learn from her experience—so much so that she took on being a lifestyle coach, sharing her inspiration and wisdom with everyone that wants to hear it (you can find the link above.) She encourages people to do the same thing that she did—”It’s not about hitting a number or goal weight, and more about showing up and loving yourself today,” she said.
