BWLW, Thank you for being a light on the topic of weight loss. It helps to know we are transforming, Body Mind and Soul!
I had the pleasure of praying for help the of 2015. Then, in January 2016, the Lord sent me an angel… Terry Starks, The Diet Doctor! Terry is the truth! I started his program in February and the weight fell off my body like magic! Who would have ever thought that weight loss was 85% diet and 15% working out! I’m Eating Clean and Training Mean!
I listen to DMX, Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, 2Pac and Biggy Smalls while I exercise. When I feel like giving up, music is one of my motivations. The other motivations I have are my amazing husband and 2 amazing sons. They depend on me and follow my new lifestyle!
I have been a vegetarian for 18 years. However, as of February 2016 I began consuming fish; salmon cod and whiting. (baked, using Ms. Dash only for seasoning) Terry has me doing 30 minutes of cardio before breakfast and 30 minutes of cardio each night. I mix up my workouts, using the treadmill, step master and elliptical machine. I lift weights as well.
My starting weight was 175 pounds in February 2016. I wore a size 12. Now, I’m wearing a size 6. My height is 5’5″.
My advice for others is reward yourself after you feel that you earned it! I still eat gummy sour worms but I will go a month without them. Then, the next month, I enjoy 1 piece at a time, inch by inch.
I still have a long way to go. My desire is to influence, impact and empower the world in which we live in. Lord, use my story so that you get the Glory!
