We are never certain as to what will happen to us the next year, next month, next day, or even the next hour and that is what makes life beautiful. This uncertainty is what enables most people to adjust to every situation they are in and make the most of it.
Just like in the story of 20-year-old, Quế Hương who has inspired many people with her encouraging story.
In her old photos, 19-year-old Quế Hương looked nowhere near a flight attendant. Simply because she was much heavier and larger. According to Quế Hương who stands at 163 centimeters (5.3 feet) tall, she used to weigh 75 kg (165 lbs). Due to her being overweight, she looked bulky and heavy that she did not even dare to look at the mirror.
“Before I lost weight, I noticed that whenever I was in public, people would laugh at my body, “Quế Hương said in a report by Good times.
However, it was not until Quế Hương discovered that her former boyfriend had actually found a new love. Upon finding out that her ex-boyfriend had a better looking new girlfriend, Quế Hương became determined to lose weight.
Even with her determination, the journey was still full of ups and downs. Quế Hương had to borrow some money to sign up for a year membership at the gym and she also made drastic changes to her diet.
She stopped eating food that is high in calories and began a strict diet consisting of lean meat, fish, chicken breast, yogurt and lots of vegetables. After successfully dropping her weight to 57 kg (125 lbs), Quế Hương then took English classes and applied for a position at Jet Star as a flight attendant.
Luckily for her, it seemed that all of her hard work had paid off! “The most important thing about this whole process is perhaps your reason and willingness to lose weight, right from the start. It may be frustrating at first, but just keep on doing it and you will succeed,” she said.
“Now it’s different. When I am walking on the streets, people look at me with admiration and pass me praises when they used to scorn me. Looking back at my old photos, my only regret is that I should have lost weight way before the breakup so that I could enjoy my youth better,” she concluded.
Quế Hương’s story is just another proof that with determination and discipline, it is possible to make drastic changes in one’s life. The change you want to see is all up to you and no one else can help you achieve it but yourself.
