Diet.com Member Loses 25 lbs, Maintains Weight Loss for Over 2 Years

May 15, 2012 Diet and weight loss website announces that site member has lost 25 lbs, shares inspiring before and after transformation photos.

Diet.com, one of the web's leading resources for diet, fitness, and nutrition content and tools, has posted a new weight loss success story highlighting one of its members' 25 pounds of successful weight loss.

The success story – the latest in Diet.com’s Weight Loss Success Stories library – details how branching out to try new healthy foods and fitness classes, as well as finding a supportive weight loss community on Diet.com, led 5’2” Kaylie Walker to drop 25 lbs, reaching a healthy weight of 117lbs and maintaining that weight loss for over 2 years now.

Kaylie, a 21-year-old registered nurse and newly-certified Zumba instructor, became a member on Diet.com in September of 2009, and began posting blogs in the site’s Diet Blogs community in January of 2010. According to the site’s feature story about her, Kaylie began trying many more new foods and tracking her food intake using Diet.com’s Calorie Counter tool.

"Every evening I logged everything I ate for the day,” Walker tells Diet.com. “It kept me aware of what I was eating on a daily basis.”

As she tried out new foods and recipes, she shared them with her fellow Diet.com members via her blog - helping to foster a supportive community while encouraging other site members to try new foods themselves. One of Kaylie’s top diet tips? Variety! “Try eating new things,” she advises. “When you are dieting, it is a great time to explore healthy, new foods. I never ate salmon in my life until I gave it a try once. Now I'm hooked on it and many other types of fish.”

In addition to trying new healthy foods, Walker pushed her fitness regimen up a notch, falling in love with new group exercise classes and the fitness videos on Diet.com. "I use the fitness videos all of the time to give me fresh ideas to try out at the gym or at home," she tells Diet.com.

Kaylie so excelled in her new fitness classes that her instructor invited her to teach her own classes at the gym. After becoming certified to teach, Kaylie has spent the last 2 years teaching fitness classes at her gym, all while completing her degree in nursing school.

Walker has just recently completed nursing school and become both a registered nurse and a certified Zumba instructor who is leasing her own workout space to hold classes.

Throughout her journey she’s maintained a journal via her diet.com blogs, amassing a personal library of over 130 blog entries.

"Blogging through Diet.com has helped me a lot by giving me a place to talk about fitness/exercising with people who are interested in it too," Kaylie told Diet.com last month. "I've gained a great deal of knowledge and ideas from fellow Diet.com bloggers during my journey as well."

Kaylie’s new lifestyle has not only made her healthier – it’s made her happier, as well:

“I've noticed that I am a happier and I have a lot more self-confidence when I am very active and eating clean. I am the complete opposite when I lose control over my diet and exercise. Knowing that I feel so much better while active and eating clean keeps me motivated.”
