Mia lost 31 pounds with a low carb diet and the help of a good friend. Here is what she shared with us:
Hello my name is Mia and I would like to share my story. I started my transformation in February 2012. I’ll never forget going to Miami with my girlfriends for a birthday celebration. After the trip, I remember looking at pictures we had taken and I was so unhappy with what I saw. I needed to do something to get this weight off. One of my girlfriends suggested we all go on a diet at the same time. She showed us what to eat and how much we should eat. This required eating a lot of meat, something that I didn’t care for. However, in order to get the weight down I buckled down and did it. For the first week I only ate a very low carb diet consisting of meat (chicken, fish, turkey and shrimp) along with 5 calorie drinks. After that first two weeks I weighted myself. I went from 161lbs to 150lbs and I was so proud that I had achieved that. I continued with my new eating habits and added vegetables and fruits. Within months, I was down from 161lbs to 130. I have been able to maintain my weight loss and I must say that it feels great. I hope that my story will help encourage others to stick to their plans. It may be a struggle at first, but don’t give up! Your goal is one less snack or fast food meal away! Stay encouraged, have faith in yourself and believe your goal can be reached.
