Weight loss story of the day: Chana lost 62 pounds. She says that eating right plus working out plus consistency = results and we agree. Here is what she shared about how she lost the weight:
“My motivation was Nakeisha James who started a group called Fit4life sisters after seeing different women losing weight and seeing there progress it motivated me to get going, also looking in the mirror seeing this person I no longer wanted to be.
How did I change my eating habits? I started by taking away the sodas, processed foods, fried food, junk food, bread, pasta, etc. I added veggies, fruits, plenty water, salads, and baked food such as chicken, salmon, fish. I also controlled my portions and food intake, and cut all starchy foods out.
My starting weight was 215 pounds. My current weight is 153 pounds. I started my journey December 2012. It took 11months for my transformation and I’m still going.
Workout routine wise, I started off doing Zumba 3-4 times a week and walking 5-6 times a week. I did this along with workouts from YouTube, working out on the treadmill, elliptical, doing strength training, lots of cardio. Workout DVDs such as Billy Blanks, Jillian Michaels, Shaun T, BGWT. I’m currently doing Iron Core Kettlebell for toning by Sarah Lurie.
My advice to others is to have the right mindset, be determined and stay consistent. Eat right+Workout+Consistency=RESULTS”
