Let’s show some BWLW love to Muriel. She lost the weight by working out via DVD with Jillian Michaels and changing her eating habits. She wrote in to share her story with us:
“Hi my name is Muriel Merritt. I would love to share my story. I started May 1, 2013 on my weight loss journey. In the beginning, I weighed 220 pounds. Now, I’m 184 pounds. So far, I have lost 36 pounds.
My motivation to lose weight was the encouragement of friends and family. Also, I wanted to do something special for me for my birthday (11/28/13). I had to change my eating habits if I wanted the weight to come off. I work in a grocery store, so I stopped going to the bakery and Deli for snack time. Instead, I started to utilize the Produce Department. I used Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred workout DVD and in the first month and lost 13 pounds. It consisted of three 6 min circuits; strength training, cardio, and abs. This DVD started the transformation of my body and changed my life. My transformation took 4 months. I started my weight loss journey 5/1/13 and lost the weight by 9/1/13. This is only the beginning.”
