Randi Vasquez: Lost 80 Lbs.
Randi Vasquez was a “chubby” kid growing up, but it never bothered her — “I was always feeling myself,” she says. That’s when she realized she needed to make some big changes in her life. She realized that unless she made some changes in her life, there was no chance she could succeed.
“I was getting heavier and heavier,” Vasquez, who eventually hit 240 lbs., says. “I started to notice that my confidence was going down, and I wasn’t motivated to do anything. It started to click that if I didn’t change my life that it would just get worse and worse.”
Vasquez had a major diet and lifestyle overhaul, but didn’t know it. She started small and in fall 2014 found a gym class at her local YMCA that she loved. Within a few months she dropped 18 to 20 lbs., and was inspired to continue going. From there, Vasquez started cooking healthier meals, and got serious about the Bikini Body Guide workout plan.
“Year after year, month after month, I made small little goals and just kept going,” she says. “I hit 80 lbs. down in fall 2017. That was such a big moment for me.”
Since then, Vasquez nailed another big goal. She has run a half marathon, and now focuses on maintaining her weight.
“I don’t feel like my weight can hold me back anymore,” she says. “I was happy before but there was so much I was held back from that I didn’t even realize.”
