Today’s featured weight loss success story: Kiesha lost 50 pounds after the birth of her 3rd child. This is a great success story for those who are losing post-baby weight.
Here is what she had to say about her weight loss journey:
“After giving birth to my 3rd child I was at the heaviest weight of my life: 208lbs! Immediately after giving birth, I lost around 20lbs of water weight from preeclampsia, but over the last 2 months doing P90x I’ve lost an additional 30 for a total of 50lbs!! I’m still not at my goal, but pages like yours REALLY help keep me motivated to keep going!! This black woman’s losing weight!!!!!
When I started P90x it came with a nutrition plan. I don’t follow it to a t because I’ve never been good at being told exactly what I can and can’t eat but I used it as an educational guide and it taught me how to clean up my diet. I’m now eating more protein than carbs and when I do eat carbs they’re complex rather than simple. I’m also eating clean now..if you can’t grow it or kill it I don’t eat it. I’m working out 6 days a week and just really staying focused on my goals.
I’ve also cut all beverages from my diet except for water and green smoothies. When I get bored with water I add flavor packs to change it up, but I’m not drining anything else.”
