What was your motivation?
My motivation was my daughters. I would look at my girls’ faces when I wanted to give up.
How did you change your eating habits?
I gave up fried foods, soda and fast food. I ate less and I only drank water and green tea. I now eat foods that are rich in protein and avoid carbs since my surgery. Sample menu for a day is: Breakfast: a protein bar, followed by a bottle of water. Lunch and dinner: Baked chicken, with either broccoli or green beans. Sometimes, I may have brown rice. I follow this up with bottled water or green tea.
I started walking every day.
