Today’s featured weight loss success story: Gerlande lost 65 pounds going from 235 lbs to 170 lbs. Zumba was a big part of her weight loss success and she is now a Zumba instructor.
I asked her what she did in terms of eating and exercise and this is what she shared with me:
“I started July 20th 2011. An ad for Zumba on the television got me off the couch and in the gym. I did Zumba for 6 days a week, then worked with a trainer for about 3 months doing everything: cardio machines and exercise (running, jogging), core training ( using medicine balls, band) and also did weight lifting (using dumbbell, barbell, doing dead lift,presses, squats lunges and all). I continue to do the same today. I’m currently a Zumba instructor in the 757 and still do a full body workout : cardio to warm up, cores & weight lifting besides zumba 6 days per week. I had to eliminate alot of bad eating habits and closely select the best healthy food. I eat breakfast, 2/3 hours later, snack on fresh fruits, eat lunch ( heavier portion, snack again 2/3 hours later. One more snack before the gym and workout. I try not to eat dinner after 9 pm. I drink alot of water more than 2 liter a day. That’s the story of my healthy weight loss journey.”
