201 Weight Loss Transformational Stories That Have Changed People’s Lives


Janine Johnston: Lost 145 Lbs.


When Janine Johnston tried on the wedding dress she had ordered online, she knew it was time for a change.

“I wanted to cry because of how I looked,” the 36-year-old tells FIERCE Training. “What was supposed to be a memorable, happy moment was depressing and embarrassing.”

In June of 2016 he set a goal to lose 100 lbs after weighing in at 299 lbs. Her wedding took place a year later. She set a daily step goal on her FitBit and started by making healthier meals.

The health services worker lost weight quickly, and by joining a local kickboxing gym, supplemented her walking with high-intensity cardio classes.

The day before her wedding, John met her goal. But she didn’t stop there: after her wedding, she kept working out and dieting to lose weight to her current weight of 154 lbs.

“I’m a much happier person now,” Johnston says. “Buying clothes is fun, cooking is fun, and my health is at the best its ever been.”
