The Key To Her Success Was…
According to Walters, the key to her success was to create a lifestyle change, focusing on eating healthier and being more active. She started by making a list of everything she wanted to change about herself and created a vision board, which helped her keep focus on her goals. She also eliminated red meat from her diet, replaced it with vegetables, and cut out some of her favorite treats, like French fries and cookies. When she started losing weight, she looked at her old photos and was disappointed with how she had changed, so she made a point to keep documenting her weight loss journey on social media.
She Watched What Other Celebs Were Doing And Learned From Their Example.
Many celebrities have taken to social media to share their weight loss journey, and Walters’ followers have helped her create a roadmap to successful weight loss. For example, she followed the lead of famous blogger and Instagrammer @purehealthyliving, who encourages followers to eat lots of vegetables and to get some workout done. Walters’ started following her in 2016 and has since lost 23lbs (10kg), demonstrating the power of copying successful habits.
She Did Intensive Research On Nutrition And Fitness.

They wanted to know what she was doing to lose weight, and she was more than happy to oblige, creating a blog post every week, documenting her weight loss progress. She explains in an interview with Health that she does her best to stay away from processed foods and tries to eat as many vegetables as possible. “I try to stay away from anything that contains a lot of sugar, because I think it’s important to not eat too much sugar, especially since so much of it is hidden in processed foods these days,” she said. “I try to stay as healthy as possible and keep my body as strong as possible, so that I can keep losing weight and keep inspiring others.”
She Made It A Family Affair.
Another huge factor in Walters’ success was that she made it a family affair. She calls herself a “work-wife-and-mom,” as she balances being a wife to Chris and a mother to three daughters. She sees losing weight as a family obligation, and it’s one of the main reasons why she was so determined to succeed. It took a lot of emotional support as well as practical help, as her husband had to step in and take over some of the childcare responsibilities.

She Maintained A Supportive Online Community.
While social media has plenty of negative aspects, it can also be used to connect with like-minded people who want to support your cause. Walters’ fans rallied around her and cheered her on as she made her way to her goal weight, becoming a symbol of inspiration for other people wanting to lose weight. “I love how much support I get on social media, it really helps keep me motivated and inspires me to continue losing weight,” she said, adding “I want to be an example for other people and show them that it’s possible to lose weight and still enjoy life.”
