Weight Loss Journey: Kilolo lost 100 pounds. Like many other moms out there, she gained weight over the course of several years and several pregnancies. Here is what she shared with us about how she lost the weight.
My name is Kilolo R. I weighted 200 lbs after my first child. By the time I had my third child, I weighed 255 lbs. My height is 5’3″. Weight loss transformation took 18 months to get to 155 pounds, down from 255 pounds. I didn’t want to continue to be overweight. I wanted and needed to be healthy not just for myself, but for my family as well.
I stopped eating so much fast food and junk food. I made better food choices, like eating more fruit and vegetables. I also started using workout DVDs made by Chris Powell, Jillian Michaels and Shaun T. I made a commitment to work out at least 3-4 a week. The DVD workouts were low intensity to high intensity, and included stretches and cool downs.
It has been a long journey, but so worth the work. There were times when it would become frustrating. Times when the scale wouldn’t move,but you have to remember that it isn’t an overnight thing. It does take time. You have to give yourself time and not get easily discouraged.
