BWLW Community Member, Marci has gone from a size 18 to a 10. http://blackwomenlosingweight.com/photo/from-an-18-to-a-size-10
She’s gone from 215 to 173!
She says, “I actually started making healthier food choices in Dec of 2011. In January I started working out. It is now August. I tell everyone it took me 9 mos to get rid of 50 LBS! Looking back, I wouldn’t have it any other way! Most days, I eat veggies, lean protein, fruit and drink lots of water.
I did pretty much what we have been told for years.. Incorporate some type of activity 5-6 times a week. (For me, it was workouts at home via dvd.) Also eat your veggies and fruit. I still eat all of the things that I used to except for McDonald’s french fries. However, don’t ask me about the fries at Chic Fila! lol I don’t follow a strict plan for eating. If I want it I will eat it. I just know if I do, put in extra hard work the next day at the gym. Breakfast might be a GREEN SMOOTHIE or oatmeal and fruit. Lunch is fast food, which can be a JR Hamburger from Wendy’s with ketchup and lettuce and tomato and a side salad or baked potato or a sub from subway. Dinner is lean protein (chicken -oven fried Bobby Dean recipe) and sweet potato and veggies!! Lots of water. Honestly, I can’t tell you when I have a soda! I think it would burn a whole in my chest, if I did!” Great job, Marci!For more great before and afters and to connect with other black women who are losing the weight, visitwww.blackwomenlosingweight.com
