If you're on your own weight-loss journey, Taran has tons of tips and advice, including drinking enough water every day (Taran drinks over a gallon a day herself), using a calorie counting app (she uses Lose It!), eating enough calories, and finding an exercise routine you enjoy,
"Don't compare your journey to what you're seeing on social media," she said. "Ensure you are doing it the healthy way and don't diminish your joy comparing your losses to someone else." She also recommends taking progress photos and monthly measurements.
And when it comes to hitting a plateau on the scale, which Taran said will happen, it's important to keep pushing yourself. "Change up your routine, make sure you're getting enough sleep, manage your stress, get enough calories and water – just never give up!"
