When you look at Lynzi Shepherd today, you’d never guess that she was once “so unhappy and unhealthy.” Her Instagram profile is full of photos and videos of her lifting weights and getting super fit — all the while smiling and enjoying the ride. POPSUGAR caught up with Lynzi to hear more about her incredible weight-loss story. You might be surprised to learn how she got to where she is today.
“I have lost over 130 pounds, all by changing the way I eat and exercise,” Lynzi told POPSUGAR. At first, she was doing a lot of cardio, which is a pretty standard thing to do when you’re trying to lose weight. “Spinning was an initial focus, and then I turned to weights — and more specifically, power lifting.” That’s when the magic started to happen.
