BlackGirlsGuidetoWeightLoss.com; Total Pounds Lost: 163
Erika, 26, fromMiami Beach,Florida
How I Did It: I lost my weight by dropping processed foods, cutting down on sugar, lifting a few weights, embracing yoga and becoming a runner!
How My Blog Helped: I began my blog as a way of keeping myself accountable for the things I was learning on my journey toward better health and a more fit body. I could never say “I didn’t know that” if I knew I could turn around and read my own words, where it was essentially me writing and explaining it to myself.
Top Tip: Take stress management seriously! When we feel stressed out, it becomes more difficult for our bodies to burn fat. Find an outlet to relieve stress such as kickboxing, yoga, journaling or sports. Basically anything that will help you relieve pent-up tension and energy.
