Janessa lost 58 pounds. This petite young lady was shocked when she stepped on a scale earlier this year at work. Eating low carb and working out has taken her from a size XXXL to XL. Check out her story.
My name is Janessa. I’ve lost 58 pounds this year. In mid April 2016, I decided to start my weight loss journey. My motivation started when I stepped on a scale at work. The numbers where shocking. At 5’1″ tall, I weighed 302 pounds. I’m only 25 years old and it was shocking to see that I’d let myself go to that extent.
I cut out all carbs and I am doing the Ketogenic/Keto diet. I only eat low carb/no carb foods, like meat, cheese, eggs, and vegetables. I workout at least 5 times a week and strength train when I can. I do various workouts, from Taebo to just hitting the gym for a couple hours. Anything to get my heart rate up and get a good sweat going.
I went from a XXXL to a XL in 5 months. It is mind blowing and so amazing. My advice to others losing weight is to take it a day at a time and don’t give up. The results are so rewarding. Remember, it takes time and effort challenge yourself. You have control over every aspect in your life, whether you believe it or not.
I’m losing this weight to inspire people and to be a healthy, strong mother for my 5 year old son. This is just the beginning. I want to lose a total of 120 pounds by this time next year. The BWLW page inspires me every day on my journey.
