Terry Starks, my coach, gave me daily encouragement and kept me focused with calls and texts.
How did you change your eating habits?

Terry recommended 30 minutes of cardio every morning on an empty stomach. I enjoyed walking, XL glider, AB Lounge, and treadmill.

I have learned to put myself first. I also learned to stay off the scale because it’s how you feel and look in the mirror.
