Let’s show some Black Women Losing Weight Love to Char! Char lost 45 pounds with prescription Adipex and eating right over the course of a year and has keep it off since 2011.
In 2010, I weighed 298 pounds (size 26/28). In 2011 I lost 45 lbs making my weight 253 lbs (size 14/16). I started taking Adipex (prescription weight loss drug) for about 2-3 months in May 2010 to get me started on controlling my appetite. I also made the decision to eat healthier because it was a requirement per my doctor. I drank nothing but water everyday, ate 2-4 small meals including oatmeal, fruit, boiled eggs, bacon, sausage (not often), vegetables, grilled fish and chicken and cut out many (most) carbs. Unfortunately, I did not work out at the gym as I lost the weight, which is why I didn’t lose more at the time. I also didn’t get the toning that I needed. I can say proudly that I did start working out towards the last few months of 2011 and have worked out at least 3 times per week since!
If I may add to my “testimony”, I’d like to say: The blessing of my epiphany of losing weight is that one day I just got tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what I saw and decided it was time for ME to change ME! I thank God daily that I didn’t make this change due to ANY health problems. I do not have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes after being overweight for so long and that’s a testimony all by itself! PRAISE GOD! #Grateful
