Transformation of the Day: Kendra lost 80 pounds. She was tired of wearing a size 22 and tired of not being able to cross her legs. On June 1st, she made a commitment to eating healthy and exercising and she hasn’t turned back. Check out her story.
When did you start your journey?
At my 30th birthday party in May 2018, I realized that I couldn’t cross my legs because my stomach was too big. Two weeks later, I woke up and realized I was sick of wearing a size 22. I changed my eating habits the same day. I also started working out. I began my journey on 6/1/18, and as of today, I am down 80 pounds.
How did you change your eating habits?
I immediately gave up bread, sweets, and alcohol. After a month, I started seeing results and decided to start doing Keto. Keto has been my nutrition plan ever since.
What did your workout routine look like?
For the first few months, I concentrated on cardio. Then, I got more educated on fitness and cut back on cardio. Now I do HIIT cardio and lift weights. I work out 5 days a week.
What is your height?
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
When I’m ready for a change, I want it immediately. I use to get upset if the scale wasn’t moving enough. At the beginning of my journey, my frustrations would lead to negative thoughts about how my body looked. I’ve built up more confidence and love myself now more than ever.
What advice do you have for other women who want to lose weight?
Never give up. The journey is a sacrifice, but it’s so worth it.

When I look at the pics I took yesterday I see nothing but flaws. Size 22 versus 16 (pants are starting to fit loose). I MUST continue to remind myself of where I came from and that shedding 73 pounds in less than 6 months is kinda awesome. 47 more pounds to go! #keto#lowcarb#weightlossjourney#afrofitness#fitness#weightlosstransformation#gymflow
