Tall Girl Spotlight: How @Mistigets_fit lost 83lbs!

Congratulations to our Denim Diva Contest winner Misty (@Mistigets_fit). Misty is a fellow tall girl who recently lost 83 pounds! We are SO inspired by her weight loss journey. She has some awesome tips and advice to share with anyone hoping to shed some pounds this year. Check out the interview below…

Tell us about yourself!

My name is Misty and I am a Southern California girl. I am 6’1” and love my height! I have been shopping with Alloy Apparel since I was 16 years old. I recently lost 83 pounds to become a healthier me!

 

When did you decide you wanted to make a change and why?

I decided that I needed to make a change because I was always tired and sick. I’d come home from work and sleep all day. I had no energy to do anything. Things were not getting better. I woke up one day and said, “enough is enough.” From that day on everything changed.

 

What were your previous diet attempts?

My previous diet attempts were extreme exercise, and low carb diets. I even tried juicing but when I didn’t see results fast I thought that I failed.

 

What made this time different? Which workouts/diets were the most effective?

This time was different because I had the right mind set. I wasn’t going to give up and I was determined to find out what would work for me. I started looking online and came up with a high protein diet. I knew I had to cut out sugar. I started out with protein shakes, they helped cut the junk food cravings. I’d have a protein bar as a snack, then a healthy lunch with high protein yogurt. Yogurt is my go-to because it’s like a dessert without all the calories. For dinner I’d start with another shake, then eat whatever I wanted because I wouldn’t over eat after a shake! For exercise, I like walking and hiking. I also went from being a cashier at my work into a area where I am constantly moving and lifting.

 

How long did it take to reach your goal?

It took me 8 months to reach my goal!

 

 

What kept you motivated?

Before and after pictures! When I was in doubt about my weight loss I would pull up old photos of myself and compare them to a new one. I would always see a difference so it kept me going. Also the energy that I gained kept me motivated.

 

What was the biggest struggle and how did you overcome it?

My biggest struggle was never having a support system! I tried to lose weight so many times and when I felt alone in my journey I gave up. I somehow found this amazing community of people on Instagram sharing their own weight loss journeys. When I joined they supported me and always congratulated me on my achievements. It really helped me get through the hardest times and become so much stronger on my own. 

 

How has your weight loss affected your everyday life?

My weight made it hard for me to keep up with my 7 year old daughter. I was always so tired! I used to sweat a lot and was never able to wear cute girly shirts so I’d wear men’s t-shirts! My knees used to hurt so much and it was really hard for me to bend down. I had stomach problems where everything would upset my stomach. All of those problems have disappeared now that I’ve lost weight.

 

 

Any other tips/advice for women hoping to get into better shape this year?

My advice would be to take lots of pictures in every angle, even if you don’t like how you look! The more pictures the better! Get yourself a support system whether it’s family, friends, or an online group. They will help you through rough times and keep you motivated. Find things that work for you through trial and error. Just keep trying until you find something! Know that you will not get to your goal weight in 2 weeks or even 3! This is a lifestyle change! You have to be willing to change your whole life for the REST of your life.

 

From one tall girl to another, any shopping tips?

I shop for clothes online! I love shopping at alloyapparel.com because they have long inseams and cute trendy clothes at affordable prices.

 

What is shopping like now vs before your weight loss?

I love shopping now! I can fit into clothes I like and that’s such an amazing feeling. I used to buy men’s T Shirts because they were the only thing comfortable enough and big enough. Now I can confidently wear whatever I want and feel great about it.

 

Which Alloy items are you most excited to buy with your $500 gift card?

With my $500 gift card I am going to purchase things I’ve always wanted to buy from Alloy Apparel, like the Clara Plunging V Jumpsuit! I want to get two beautiful dresses because I’ve never owned a dress long enough! I also want to get the beautiful Bella Floral Jeans with the flowers down the sides, and some cute new tops! I have a lot in mind.

 

Thanks for taking the time to chat with us Misty. You look AMAZING! Happy Shopping!
