How "100 Days at the Gym" Helped One Awesome Lady Find Herself (Grab Tissues)

One woman shares her 100 day weight-loss journey online and becomes a YouTube sensation

Looking for a heartfelt pick-me-up? Then watch this three-minute video starring a brave and brutally honest young lady named LaKeisha.

She begins the video by admitting she weighs 348 pounds and battles with low-self esteem and depression. While she is happy for her friends finding love and moving forward, her poor self image leads her to believe she was meant for a fate less fortunate. “I still feel like, I’m kind of stuck,” she says, with tears streaming down her face. (Tissue time.)

But she craves a better life and begins a weight loss journey where she vows to head to the gym for 100 days, rain or shine. As the days progress, you can actually see her eyes come alive. And her sweet smile is simply contagious.

LaKeisha is still on her journey, but the so-far transformation is incredible. And while the outside looks amazing, I can’t help but notice her inner glow.

You are a true inspiration, LaKeisha. And we’re dancing right along with you.
