Weight Loss Success Story of the Day: Latania lost 66 pounds. After being diagnosed with diabetes, she didn’t let the wake up call go to waste. She made up in her mind that it was time to change her lifestyle and be a healthy mom.
I never thought that my weight was an issue. I went to the doctor for a regular appointment and was told that my blood sugar level was 200 plus. The doctor told me that I needed to be put on insulin. I begged the doctor to give me pills to control my blood sugar and promised that in three months I would drop some of my weight to improve my health. The thought of medicine makes me afraid and I want to be healthy for my children, so on that day in November of 2013 I decided to change my life.
I stopped eating junk foods and drinking soda pops. I bought a Nutribullet and used it daily. I also got a gym membership and worked out EVERYDAY!!! I did cardio for an hour and then a thirty minute workout on the weights. I had Nutribullet nutriblast smoothies for breakfast. Eventually, I started to see a change in me and I’m very proud of myself. I have inspired so many people and that is what helps me to keep it up, because I know someone out there is depending on my example!!! I was 297 pounds (almost 300 lbs) and now I’m 231 pounds at 5’7″. My advice to others is that every diet is not for everyone.
