You should say:

  • What it was
  • How it was made
  • What difficulties have you encountered during the process

And explain why you are proud of this achievement

Well, it’s probably difficult to believe but last year I knocked off X kilos in about 6 months, and this is what I am still enormously proud of. I have to confess…I used to be a very lazy girl who loved fast food and hated sports. And at that time I was so slim that I didn’t even think that one day being overweight would become my number 1 problem. So when I realized that I’d put on X kilos, I decided to lose weight and get fit, no matter what.

And so it began. I started exercising daily. I went jogging in the mornings and I walked in the evenings. Also, I ditched junk food and stopped buying snacks, which I couldn’t live without. I started sticking to a diet. You know, no sweets, no rice, no cheeseburgers, and French fries. Not only salads, vegetables, fruits and plenty of fluids. I ate only healthy food and drank a lot of water daily. I cooked foods in healthier ways such as boiling, baking, and stewing. I read somewhere that it is better to have a few light meals instead of on main meal. So I followed this advice too. I continued this practice for six straight months. As a result, I lost more than X kilograms.

Now I’m not only as slim as I used to be, but I’m also fit enough. And I’m genuinely proud of my achievement. I should say it was hard to change my habits, my diet, and my lifestyle, and at some point I was about to give up because all those activities were really time-consuming. But I didn’t, thank God, though I was facing a lot of difficulties. Another thing that makes me feel inordinately proud of myself is that I achieved great results without anybody’s help. I just read blogs and forums, used a lot of online resources, but it was I that decided what to do with myself. This is something I never thought I could do. You can’t even imagine how much effort I put into achieving this result. I would even say I was fighting the battle of my life. And I won.
