WHEN DID YOU START DEVELOPING A WEIGHT PROBLEM?
As soon as I hit adolescents
HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE? My weight effected my breathing & left my knees in a lot of pain
WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY? I lost my mother due to obesity…that was my WAKE UP CALL.I could’ve continued down the same path & die with her or LIVE in her honor
I can’t even recognize myself sometimes. There may be days I just want to cheat out of my routine; I mean I already lost the weight, right? WRONG! Pictures like these are what keep me pushing harder, because I know where I’ve been, I know I COULD go back. I WILL NOT allow myself to because it isn’t just about the weight difference….. it’s a balance of a mental & physical change that produces growth. All it takes is making a choice, stick to it & get moving. Don’t allow your mind to talk you out of it. We are capable of AMAZING things, we can mold ourselves to what we want to be. The body is a beautiful thing , you don’t know how strong you are until you take those first few steps. Give yourself the gift of life & next level happiness….you’re worth it !
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED? I met with a Wellness Coach that got me started on a personalized nutrition plan!
HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS? The first 3 days!
DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING? Whenever I feel like giving up I find the will power in reminding myself WHY I started!
HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO LOSE MOST OF THE WEIGHT? 11 months
DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES? The scale dosen’t determine your beauty. My confidence was instilled in me pre weight loss. I’ve been able to show girls that unless you love yourself before you’ll never appreciate the after .
HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER? I workout 6 days a week as a former of therapy I love it!
