Weight Lifted: Transformation Weight Loss Videos

by Alane Jewel on January 19, 2013

Most of us could afford to lose a pound or two in the pursuit of optimal health. Let’s face it; losing even a few pounds can be hard. There are also many of us who have a greater number to lose and it can be overwhelming. It is easy to get stuck in a rut and find ourselves unable to break free from the extra pounds weighing us down. There is no reason for anyone to believe that they are stuck being overweight forever, we have the power to change.

Losing weight may be the most common New Year’s resolution. Committing to losing a lot of weight takes time and dedication. Don’t despair though. It can be done; even the greatest goals can be achieved with time and motivation. Maybe you haven’t found your support system yet. Even if you have friends or family who encourage you to lose the weight, you may need more momentum to get you started. Hearing the inspirational weight loss success stories of others who have gone on the journey you are about to embark on may be the key that proves you can be successful, too.


Reading about the success of others may not be powerful enough to motivate you or keep you going on a weight loss journey. Sometimes it takes a combination of an inspirational weight loss success story and the pictures to prove the transformation. Online videos are one of the best and fastest ways to become part of your contemporary’s life. Not only will you become transfixed by the testimonial video the first time you see it, but you can watch it over and over again to reinvigorate your effort toward your weight loss goal.

YouTube offers thousands of weight loss inspirational videos that you may find motivational. First, you have to decide what kind of story encourages you? Is it the story of someone just like you or the success story of someone with health-related issues? Maybe it’s the story of someone who was just fed up with being overweight and finally felt compelled to make a change. Whatever your preference, YouTube has a video for you.


Ginny Hiott’s Insanity Transformation video details a familiar story. Hiott is a professional, who never places herself first, and instead tends to the needs of her family and others. The weight slowly keeps packing on and before she knew it, she didn’t even know how to begin her weight loss journey. Finally, she got tired of being tired. Hiott started working out and found the self-confidence to see it through to the successful completion of her weight loss goals. This video will inspire every working parent to make the time for a good workout.


In this inspiring success story video, Arthur’s weight loss story chronicles his life-altering journey from disabled veteran who used crutches to get around to his determination to commit to a weight loss and strength training program. He reached out for help from Dallas Page, a former pro-wrestler who developed a fitness program that incorporates a multitude of fitness regimens including yoga that has helped many create their own inspirational weight loss stories. During the video we don’t only see the transformation in Arthur’s physical body, but the transformation of his spirit as well. Arthur empowers us to never give up. No matter how you are feeling today, you can take even the smallest steps to improve your health.

You can share your own story with a testimonial video. It’s not too late to document your own journey and share it online. With some tips for shooting mobile phone videos and determination sparked by the endless YouTube weight loss success story videos, you can easily make videos chronicling your own weight loss using your smartphone. What are you waiting for? The videos can inspire you, but only you can make a difference.

These were very inspiring. I just love all the fitness videos online these days. My trainers at Fitness Together actually posted a cool workout video that I can do at my local park. With inspiring stories and new ways to workout online, I’m going to finally get in shape… I hope.
