My name is Jacqueline D. Last year, in April 2016, I decided to embark on a weight loss journey. After years of yo yo dieting, I finally got serious because I was tired of being unhappy with myself. My children inspired me to keep going because they could see that I was making a lifestyle change. I felt like they served as my accountability.
How did you change your eating habits?
I started my journey by cleaning up my diet. I stopped eating fried foods and bread. I incorporated more fruits, vegetables, and lean meats into my meals. I also started juicing and drinking smoothies.
What did you do in terms of exercise?
I worked out five to six days a week. My routine consisted of HIIT training, cardio, and strength training in the Revamp boot camp.
Starting and Current Weight
My starting weight was 290 pounds. I currently weigh 222 pounds, and I’m 5’7″ tall. All natural, no weight loss surgery or weight loss pills. I still have a ways to go, but I’m feeling so much better, especially physically. I have tons of energy now. This is definitely a lifestyle change, and I’m loving it.
What is your advice for others who want to lose weight?
My advice to others is to make a commitment and stick to it and to PRAY CONSISTENTLY! Change the way you think, and you will change your life.
