June 2015 – Weight Loss Transformation Story: Mecca lost 65 pounds. Motivated by wanting to improve her blood pressure, she changed her eating habits and started working out regularly. She shared her before and after photos with us and told us bit about how she lost the pounds…
My name is Mecca and I’m down 65 pounds. I’m still working hard to succeed at ultimate goal, but I wanted to share my story.
My motivation was my health. I got high blood pressure, as well as aches and pains in my joints. In the beginning, I changed my diet and started working out twice a week. I went on a very strict diet that is high in protein. I left bread and rice alone and cut out anything with sugar. Now, I walk at least 1 mile each day and do circuit training 3 times a week. My starting weight was 307 pounds. Today, my current weight is 242 pounds and my height is 5’6″ and a half. It has taken me 6 months to loose the weight. My advice to others is focus on your health. We have long lives and lots of time to walk the hard road it takes to get healthy and it is so worth it.
