Weight Loss Transformation of the Day: Kiara lost 60 pounds. This mom lost the weight with portion control, cleaning up her eating habits and exercising. Here is what she shared with us about her journey…
My name is Kiara and I started my weight loss journey in 2007. At my heaviest I was weighing in at 242 pounds. I went to the doctor and was depressed. I immediately started working out and dieting. That didn’t last long, because after lost 7 lbs and found out I was pregnant.
Post-pregnancy, I was at 267 lbs (I am 5’7″ tall). I began again in Nov. 2008 and lost 60 lbs. I still have work to go. I watched portions and limited fried and fast food. I worked out at least an hour per day, 5 days a week. Sometimes, I’d workout twice in a day.
It has been a long journey and the work never stops. Over the years, I have seen my weight fluctuate 10-15 pounds, back and forth. I have about 20 more pounds that I’d like to get off before I reach my goal weight, so stay tuned. I’m not finished yet…Lol.
For others wanting to lose weight, I’d say you have to ask yourself how bad do I really want this? Once I put my mind to it I was all in and it was well worth it. I felt better and I was so happy I didn’t have to go to the plus size section anymore.
