Karla lost 73 pounds in 9 months. Let’s show her some love for sharing her story. Here is what she shared with us:
I have lost 73 pounds in 9 months. I did it all natural by cutting back on the foods I needed to & walking. I still want to lose 30 pounds more. I was 273 on the pic with the purple shirt. I’m 200 pounds now. My goal weight is 170-180 pounds.
My motivation was my kids and wanting to be here for them. I had to get healthy. I changed my eating habits by not eating after 6pm unless it was fruit. Every morning at 5:45 am I walk 5 or 6 miles. I drink a Kellogg breakfast shake at 8am. For lunch, I have subway or a small salad I made at home. Then, I would eat a regular dinner (example: 1 chicken wing, mac & cheese and string beans). I don’t have bread unless it was wheat. No drinking soda, only water, natural fruit juices, or cranberry juice. I also eat a lot of fruit. If I go out to eat, I order off the kids menu and I always get water with my meal. Also, some mornings I eat Kellogg cereal with slim milk. For exercise, I walk 6 days a week for a total of 5 to 6 miles. My goal is to lose a total of 100 pounds in a year. My year will be up on September 15th.
