Transformation of the Day: Gabrielle lost 60 pounds. Cutting out sugar and eating low carb, high protein foods works for her. Seeing other people achieve their health and fitness goals inspires her and reminds her that she reach her goals too.
What inspired you to keep going when you wanted to give up?
Seeing others succeed inspires me. If they can do it, I can do it. I often remind myself that I control my flesh. My flesh doesn’t control me.
How did you change your eating habits?

What did your workout routine consist of?
