Gleneice lost 23 pounds with healthy food and exercise. After seeing the scale at her doctor’s office reach almost 300 lbs during her weigh-in, she started her journey. Her husband and children are her inspiration and her cheerleaders.
What was your motivation?
My motivation was going to the doctor’s office and seeing my weight on the scale reach almost 300lbs!
What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
My husband and my children are my BIGGEST inspirations. They are constantly motivating me to keep pushing even when I want to quit.
How did you change your eating habits?
I started as a Vegan, and now I am a Pescatarian [vegetarian who eats seafood]. I’ve cut back a lot on sweets, soda, fried/fast food, and alcohol (I drink now and then). I also eat smaller portions.
What did your workout routine consist of? How often did you work out?
My workout routine currently consists of cardio and a variety of resistance training for building muscle. I used to work out 4-5 days a week. Now, with my new job, I try to get it in at least 3-4 days a week.
What was your starting weight? What is your current weight?
My starting weight was 294.6/295 pounds, and my current weight is 272. I’m still in the early stages of my journey, and I’m loving EACH and EVERY moment!
What is your height?
When did you start your journey? How long did your transformation take?
I’ve been on this journey off and on for a few years now. When the pandemic happened, I put on so much weight. I didn’t get serious about losing weight until my 31st birthday on June 24 of this year. I am currently still transforming.
Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
No, I chose not to go that route. I’ve had two cesareans, so I wanted to avoid any major surgeries for the time being. I have so much love for all my sisters, who are fighting to stay healthy️.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is DO NOT RELY ON THE SCALE! Sometimes the scale won’t move for days or weeks at a time, and you feel like you’re doing something wrong. You’re not. Remember this: the inches and before/after pics don’t lie!
What advice do you have for women who want to lose weight?
Starting the journey can be a battle. Staying on course during the journey can feel like war. Succeeding in your journey is a sure VICTORY! Keep PUSHing, my sisters!
