<p>Brianna Mellin er 29 ára gömul og fyrir rúmum tveimur árum ákvað hún að nauðsynlegt væri að gera breytingar á lífsstílnum. Hún segist alltaf hafa verið í þyngri kantinum en hún hafi verið komin í alvarlega yfirþyngd eftir að hún eignaðist dóttur í mars 2015. Jafnframt þjáðist hún af þunglyndi og þráði að líða betur.</p> <p>Hún íhugaði að skilja við eiginmann sinn og freista þess að komast í betra samband en var þó meðvituð um það að hún þyrfti fyrst að komast á betri stað sjálf til að hún væri fær um að vera í ástríku og heilbrigðu sambandi. Hún hafði reynt ýmsar lífsstílsbreytingar með litlum árangri. Hún ákvað engu að síður að hún þyrfti eitthvað gera til að líf hennar myndi breytast og því hóf hún vegferðina: Borða minna - hreyfa sig meira sem hún segir að hafi ekki falið í sér nein átök heldur verið náttúruleg hægfara þróun sem skilaði árangri. Hún byrjaði á að minnka matarskammtinn og smám saman fór hún að sleppa hinum ýmsu millimálum og snakkáti yfir sjónvarpinu. Hún skipti steiktum kjúklingi út fyrir grillaðan.</p> <p>Stóra breytingin var appið My Fitness Pal því þá hóf hún að skrá niður allt sem hún borðaði. Hún segist þá hafa áttað sig betur á samsetningu fæðunnar, hitaeiningamagni og hvað hún var að borða. Mesta áfallið var hvað hún borðaði mikið en hún setti sér 1.500 hitaeininga hámark og stillti matarskammtana eftir því. </p> <p>Hún segist ekki neita sér um neitt enda trúi hún ekki á það. Hins vegar breytist matarlystin smám saman þegar fylgist sé með hitaeiningunum og viðkomandi verður miklu meðvitaðri um hvað verið er að borða. </p> <p>Vegferð Briönnu hefur tekið tvö ár og það eru 90 kíló farin. Brianna vinnur nú sem ráðgjafi og aðstoðar fólk sem er í hennar sporum og vill aðstoð. </p> <p>Umfram allt segir hún að sér líði miklu betur - bæði líkamlega og andlega og það sé það sem skipti mestu máli. </p> <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-captioned="" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/B3D0Ujygh1t/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="12" style="background: #FFF;
