Update 2016 – 100 pounds gone!
Let’s get ready to DO WORK this week bc nothing is going to WORK but WORK!!! I am still in awe with what God has allowed me to do with my body from the inside/out! ?? Looking as good as I wanted to look on the left on the outside but slowly killing myself on the inside! I had to learn to get over what it LOOKED like & start taking care of myself from the inside/out! I didn’t commit to this lifestyle right away & actually was on a yoyo gaining & losing the same 10lbs. My trainer wanted it for me but I didn’t want it bad enough for myself! You have to want this change to take place & be willing to lose it ALL so that you can gain so much more!!! I am 5’3 & have been over 230lbs & nothing but WORK has placed me where I am today! When I changed my mindset there wasn’t anything that could stop me. I started feeling better, I became a better TT, a better educator & a better person! I am on an assignment by God to help as many people get their health on track & I am not the # of people that follow me bc all that matters is that I inspire someone to get it right while they have a chance. If you ever meet me you will know that I’m just a silly lady in love with taking care of her health & helping others do the same! I pray you go above & beyond for YOURSELF this week!!! Let’s Work!!! #muscles #motivation #dedication #determination #nodaysoff #noexcuses #training #T4ML #gohard #gymrat #running #results #bgr #bgwt #beastmode #fitness #fitchick #fckbeingfat #essence #igfitness #DIEFATDIEE #CARDIO #weights #weightloss #weightlossjourney #polara360 #Nike
Congrats to BWLW inspiration Donesha Bolden for her feature in the June 2014 issue of Women’s Health Magazine. We featured her story back in Dec 2013. She lost 82 pounds and is still going strong (she lost one more pound since our feature and gained muscle/definition). She is an inspiration! Check out her update and her new photos below.
“Hi, I wanted to update you with some new pics and the news of my story being featured in Women’s Health Magazine. This is a great accomplish for African American ladies! Thanks for your Facebook, Web & Internet pages because they truly keep me motivated!
I have started a serious weight lifting program with my trainer and I’m working on decreasing my body fat by building muscle. I am currently 138 pounds so there might be a pound or so more gone since I was featured in December. I am a lot leaner since I was featured. One of the most important things that I have learned about weight loss is that if I thought it was hard to get it off its even harder to keep it off. This is not something that has an end date. It’s a lifestyle and I am committed to staying healthy for the rest of my life
In the past, I was that lady that was afraid of looking like a man so in the beginning I was afraid to lift but now I see just how wrong I was about lifting weights. Muscle burns FAT so it’s necessary.” – Instagram: @training4mylife
