Bullied and isolated; this girl decided to lose 55kgs. Look at her now!

Meet Tanya Rybakov. She used to weigh a lot. After years of taunts, bullying and exclusion, she decided to lose the weight, and now it’s completely changed her life.

There was 55kgs between Tanya and happiness. Weighing it at 107kgs, the 25-year-old found herself the victim of cruel taunts and bullying.

Dropping 55kgs, the brunette beauty has not only transformed the way she looks, she’s transformed her entire life. After losing the weight, she became something of a viral sensation - and when you look at her, it’s not hard to see why.

She’s leveraged her new found profile to gain over 300K subscribers to her YouTube channel, as well as creating a lifestyle blog, which has also become something of a sensation.

It was a tough slog, though, to lose the weight - taking around three and a half years to shed the 55kgs.

She explains it’s like her own “Cinderella story”.

“Children were mean, so I didn’t socialise — I had no friends and I spent a lot of time just reading. It was so bad I would come home from school crying and I didn’t want to go back. Being overweight took my confidence. Now it’s cool to see myself on television and often I can’t believe this is my life.”

The turning point?

“I was alone and crying. Even my friends didn’t talk to me, so I decided then to lose the weight."

“Now those people from school reach out and tell me I’m beautiful.”

After trying several different diets, it took a nutritionist and a trainer to educate Tanya on how to do it right.

“I was trying a lot of things to lose weight. I would try one diet after another,” she said.

“But there was a lot of crap diets that were popular but not healthy. When I was a student at university I was having health problems from not eating healthy like feeling weak and shaking."

Для того, чтобы добиться результата нужна не столько сила воли, сколько дисциплина, в нее я не только верю, но и использую в работе с теми, кто хочет скорректировать свою фигуру. Мой проект rybakovakurs.com специально построен так, что вы не только получаете теоретическую базу, примеры меню/тренировок/график ухода за собой и тд., но и ведёте своё похудение в режиме он-лайн. Мне не хотелось делать его по типу книги, которую можно отложить в дальний ящик, или pdf документа, который потеряется в вашем компьютере. Я хочу создать сообщество тех, кто меняет не только фигуру, но и отношение к своему образу жизни, поэтому мы с командой работаем над личными кабинетами и я постоянно думаю над тем, что можно улучшить. Идеала нет, но хочется к нему стремиться и многие свои идеи я планирую реализовать в скором времени. Помните, что мы сами в ответе за свою жизнь и тем более тело. Конечно, сложно будет следовать определенным рекомендациям по питанию, спорту и уходу за собой без осознания ответа на вопрос: "Зачем мне все это надо?". А это вы сможете понять после того, как внимательно разберетесь в себе и поймете какие мысли, вещи и события стали нормой в вашем образе жизни и привели к тому недовольству, которое вы испытываете здесь и сейчас. Все получится, ведь вместе работать над собой горазд проще#rybakovakurs #TanyaFitnes

“I researched healthy food and went to nutritionist and I wanted to learn everything about fitness training.”

She also got the excess skin removed to complete her transformation.

“I was trying to accept the saggy skin and doing everything I can but it was too much skin. The surgery is not a secret and I am always honest about this. I also hope it warns other people from getting fat. I never thought about that before when I was big.”

Her tips to those who want to follow her footsteps?
