Weight Loss Transformation of the Day: Dee lost over 90 pounds. After a serious diabetes scare, she knew that it was time to make some changes. She started changing her eating habits and walking. Now, she’s running half marathons. Here is what she told us about her journey…
I have been on this weight loss journey for a little over 2 years after a HUGE scare with Diabetes. I weighed 245 pounds at 5’4″ and was very unhealthy. I didn’t want to be a diabetic nor take any medicine, so on July 30, 2013, I made the decision to change for my good. I changed my diet and started exercising.
I cut out fried foods. Instead, I ate lean meats, lots of vegetables and stuck to a high protein diet. I started walking and then the next thing I know I was running half marathons. I fell in love with running and it is my passion nowadays.
I made up my mind to get serious about my health and I have now lost over 90 pounds. The diabetes scare is gone and my A1c is now 5.2.
If I can do it, so can you. Just stay focused on your goals and know that your good health is your wealth. I’m living my best days, now.
