Weight Loss Story: Melva lost 50 pounds. Motivated by the loss and potential loss of loved ones, including her mother, and powered by prayer she decided that it was time to change. She wanted to love what she saw in the mirror. Her is what she shared about her weight loss journey…
Life hit me really hard! This page has inspired me to continue my journey. The BWLW page inspires me to keep going. Picture on the right was in 2012 and the one on left is from 2015. I went from 230 pounds to 180 pounds (height: 5’4″).
My motivation was looking in the mirror and not liking what I was seeing. My Inspiration: I would have to say it came from prayer. I asked God to give me the strength to commit to changing. My weight loss journey was also influenced by the fact that I lost my mother in law and three months later I also almost lost my mother.
I stopped eating fast food and committed 1 hour a day to working out. I started juicing, stopped eating red meat and stopped eating processed foods. Now, I do 70 minutes of cardio and weight training five days a week. I also drink plenty of water. My advice to others would be to take it one day at a time and to stay focused. It took me a year to loose 50 pounds!
