Transformation of the Day: Jasmine lost 75 pounds. She cut out the foods that weren’t helping her achieve her goals and worked out five days a week. Now she is focused on maintaining her new healthy lifestyle.
When did you start your weight loss journey?
I initially first started my journey in November 2019. I began by working out five days a week and making better food choices. Weight loss was a very slow process for me, but I tried my hardest to stick to it!
In September 2021, I wanted faster weight loss results, so I went on a very strict diet; no alcohol, no beef, and no pork. Just grilled chicken, fruit, vegetables, etc. I also stayed away from eating out and cooked all of my food.
I am currently down 75 pounds and still going. When I have the urge to get off track, I just tell myself that I’m not cheating anyone but myself!
What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
What motivated me to lose weight was not being able to fit in certain clothes! What inspired me to keep going was all the compliments I was receiving. There were times when I wanted to give up, but I kept in mind that no one could do it for me!

The biggest lessons I’ve learned are never to cut myself short, and you have to make it a lifestyle!
