Shanta lost 112+ pounds and recently sent in this update… Aug 22nd: I want to give you another update. Yesterday was a Big day for me. I am now a certified Tabata bootcamp instructor!!!! Yes, I look a hot mess (HA HA), but it was so worth it. I’m so proud of myself, because now I can really help others reach their goals. I knew God had calling on my journey and now I can share it with the world!
To maintain my weight loss and keep going I went back to what I did at the beginning of my weight loss journey. I drank more water and I had to change some of workouts. My body got use to what I was doing, so I added weight training and more running. The new lessons I’ve learned is to never give up on your goals. It might be hard, and you might feel like giving up but just keep fighting. I had to learn that while on this journey. My advice to others is that everybody’s journey is not the same. Do what works for you and your body and know that this journey is a process. The weight is not going to come off overnight. Keep fighting and never give up on your dreams, no matter who says you can’t do it. One more thing I will say is when you change your mind your body will follow. As of today my goals are to start my bootcamp classes in September. I also want to lose these last 20. My goal is just to motivate others.
