Update 12/15 – Besha just celebrated her 2 year weight loss journey anniversary. She’s lost 74 pounds, down from 267 pounds. (read the original post below for more information on how she lost the weight)
74lbs lost! I’ve been maintaining the weight for a year. I do weight training 4 days a week and cardio once a week. I’ve also been meal prepping, eating mostly grilled chicken and veggies. I’ve stayed motivated by the comments I hear and inspiration that others get by watching my journey. My 2 year anniversary is January 2nd.
10/14 – Besha is now down a total of 61 pounds. That’s 24 more pounds since July! Amazing!
July 2014 – Proud mom Besha lost 37 pounds since the beginning of the year. She was motivated by her daughter and by wanting to avoid chronic health issues. She shared with us how she lost the weight:
I have lost 37 pounds since January 2nd. I am giving myself until January 2, 2015 to see what my complete transformation will look like. I work out with a personal trainer 3 times a week, doing weights, cardio and I’m eating health.
Motivation: I just kept looking at myself saying that I don’t want to end up with health problems like people in my family. They are dealing with high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Also my daughter was my motivation. I wanted to be able to run with her and play basketball with her.
Eating habits: I changed them cold turkey. I went 40 days without eating any meats. I was hard on myself. Once I started back eating meat, it was chicken and seafood only. I’m a Pesco-pollo vegetarian (a vegetarian who eats chicken and fish only).
Starting weight was 267 pounds and my current weight is 230 pounds. My height is 5’6″ tall.
My advice: Your body will not go where your mind doesn’t let it. Discipline yourself. Be hard on yourself and put your mind to it
Thank you! I been looking for a group like this.
