What was your motivation? What inspired you when you wanted to give up?
My biggest motivation was, and is God. I’ve tried to lose weight so many times in the past, but I was unsuccessful at keeping the weight off. I had to seek God for strength and dedication continually. I also had to renew my mind and change my thinking. Being overweight had a negative impact on my health, both mentally and physically. I wanted to change that forever.
How did you change your eating habits?
When I first began this journey in November 2015, I started with JJ Smith’s 10-day green smoothie cleanse. I also went vegetarian until December of 2018. Now I am a pescatarian. I continue to eat healthily and also incorporate intermittent fasting.
What did your workout routine consist of?
I used to work out 6-7 days a week, but now I do a minimum of 4 days a week. I include HIIT training, sprints, and strength training in my workouts.

Is weight loss surgery a part of your journey?
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned?
Fitness is a journey, and you won’t get results overnight. God helped me to realize that when I got frustrated about my progress during my journey. The goal is to be healthy and strong, not just skinny. Now I’m just thankful for Him and the process.
