We all have some bad habits that we really ought to change in our every day lives. It may seem like a minor thing, but changing your habits can actually heavily contribute to you being happier and more confident in yourself.
One such person who completely changed their life by ditching their habits goes by melephants. The 20-year-old used to weigh 143lbs, and considering she’s only 4ft 10″ tall, that wasn’t a very good thing. But, by eating properly, counting calories and hitting the gym regularly, she lost more than 30lbs.
She first started by adjusting her eating habits and then she slowly incorporated exercise into her everyday life. “I base my meals around a source of protein now (chicken, fish) and lots of veggies,” she says. “I don’t eat carbs that much, more on lifting days”.
She is also making other minor changes like standing on the train instead of sitting, leaving snacks out of the house and drinking a lot more water.
“Honestly, it’s not only benefited my physical health but my mental health too,” she said, adding that her lifestyle change has been the “best decision I’ve ever made!”
It’s interesting to see how much she’s changed
The changes are definitely noticeable.

She used to be quite a bit bigger on the left, but now she’s looking very good.
She has stated:
“For the first month or so I spent a lot of time on the treadmill but didn’t enjoy it, or see much change”
She focuses a lot on High Intensity Interval Training, along with weight lifting.
She works her lower body two/three times per week and her upper body twice
