Let’s show some BWLW love to Nia who lost 106 pounds and has kept it off for seven years.
Starting weight: 237
“I started off with about 20 minutes a day on the treadmill, walking. I could hardly breathe after 20 minutes, so that was my limit. After a while, I was able to do a “brisk walk” for 30 minutes. After I got my “wind”, I was able to run for an hour (who knew)!!!
I drank A LOT of water, which not only hydrated me, but killed cravings during the day. I have to honestly say that I didn’t change much of what I ate, just the AMOUNT (portion control)! I still ate burgers and fried foods (and I still do), because I knew I would crave them eventually, and I didn’t want to shock my system. It keeps me from overindulging when I do have these foods.
Thankfully, I now have better portion control, and by drinking water, and exercise, I’ve been able to keep it off for 7 years!”
