Today’s featured success story: Natasha lost more than 25 pounds. She stopped weighing herself and threw out her scale after she lost 25 pounds. She is focused on non-scale victories. Love that.
Here is what she had to say:
“I wanted to share my success photo with you. I was hesitant in sharing because unlike most of the ladies I don’t know how much weight I have lost. I was always advised to throw the scale out of my house because it would become discouraging at times during my journey and I did not want any set backs.
I started this journey the earlier part of this year. After a visit to the doctor and him telling me that I was in the early stages of becoming a diabetic, for some reason that sounded like a death sentence in my ears. From that point on, after much prayer, I embraced this healthy lifestyle journey of eating better and exercises…my motto was move more and eat less. I did this with NO weight loss surgery…only the power of prayer. I’m one to get bored easy so I would change up my recreation periodically with things such as Insanity, Group Training, Racquetball, etc. I also would count my calories through myfitnesspal.com because I don’t like the restrictions of eating just certain foods. I cut out sugary drinks because I refused to DRINK my daily caloric intake.
The journey has not been easy, but it has been very rewarding. If I could encourage, motivate, and/or uplift anyone through this journey I have made myself available to do so for I also know how much support from those embarking the same journey as you helps along the way. Always remember, with GOD all things are possible!! xoxoxo #teamfit”
