Runtastic Success Story: “If I can do this, anyone can!”

When my scale displayed 264 pounds on February 1, 2013 – and I should mention, I am just 5’6’’ – something clicked. I wouldn’t live to see my daughter become a woman if I went on like this. So I decided to change my life. Not a temporary fix, but a lifestyle overhaul including healthy nutrition and sports. I decided I wanted to see my daughter grow up and be there for her.


Apart from a diet and a gym membership, it was also the Runtastic app that motivated me to go running and continue my weight loss journey. On February 1, 2014, one year and 114 lost pounds later, I weighed only 150.8 pounds! I have been taken off my blood pressure and cholesterol medications and I no longer have any use for my sleep apnea machine. I am much healthier now and just ran my first 5K last weekend. If I can do this, anyone can!
