I starting eating healthy and used portion control. I ate more often but in small quantities. I cut out all bad carbs and added meal prepping to my journey. I also added greens to each meal and used Herbalife supplements.

What advice do you have for women who want to lose weight?
Set your mind on it. Then, put your grind on it, listen to your body, and stick to your goal even after it’s met. Also, there is no one-way method to challenge your body.
Record your starting point and get rid of the scale. Look for body changes, not numbers. Most importantly, create an image of the body you want and look at it daily. Feed your self conscious.
