Ladies, Every pound counts! I love it that Tianna has shared her progress as she begins her weight loss journey. She is down 9.6 pounds, but she knows that it’s not just about numbers on a scale. Non-scale victories are important. Check out what she shared with us:
Hello! This page has been such an inspiration to me. It has helped to keep me motivated and inspired to keep going! I love reading the stories daily & although I haven’t lost as much as I want yet, I was inspired to submit my small victory so far!
I started this weight loss journey on 1/20/14 after an ‘impromptu’ session of cleaning my closet & realizing I had 40 pairs of pants that I could no longer wear! That was IT for me!
I started eating clean, I cut out fast food, fried foods, anything processed & sweets! I do have my one day where I ‘cheat’, but I’m mostly eating lean meats, fruits & veggies! I work out 5-6 days a week; sometimes twice daily & I rest on Sundays! So far, I have lost 9.6lbs, HOWEVER, I have lost 8inches in my waist, 2inches in my bust line & 1inch in my arms & legs!
One of the hardest lessons I’ve learned on this journey is that the scale does not always predict progress! I’m obsessed with the numbers and failed to see my body was actually physically changing–ALOT! I look leaner, my clothes are way more loose and I’ve dropped a couple shirt sizes (still waiting to drop a pants size but the hips don’t lie lol). My pants ARE way more loose, so it’s coming, I’m sure!
I receive most of my encouragement from my husband who is my biggest support! Also, through my Instagram page where there have been countless strangers & some close friends and family rooting me on!
I don’t plan on stopping until I reach my goal! Right now I have no idea what that goal is, I just know for now my goal is to just keep going…..
Thanks for letting me share!
