Let’s show Nicey some BWLW love. She lost 74 pounds by changing her eating habits, dropping sugary drinks and adding exercise to her life. Here is what she shared with us:
My name is Nicey and I have struggled with being over weight my whole life…until now! Being the only child that my mother had made getting what I wanted very easily, especially FOOD!!! I can remember wanting to wear certain clothing or get on rides at the fair with my cousins, who were slimmer than I was, but couldn’t. IT HURT!!!! I was so scared that I would become diabetic or, better yet, die in my sleep from being so big. I was tired of being disgusted with myself and decided to make changes in my life. In 2012, I was blessed to meet new people who had such an impact on my life and started a journey that I am still on…My weight lost journey!!! I am proud to say that I am now 74 lbs lighter by changing my eating habits, dropping sodas and juices and by adding exercise routines into my life. I exercise 5 days a week. You would find me walking, dancing, Hip Hop Abs with my home boy Shaun T and I even do a little Zumba. I have too much to live for and can no longer let MY battle with My weight continue. (By the way I’m winning) I can promise you that if you think that you can’t do it, you are so WRONG. Surround yourself with a lot of positive people that will help get your motivation going. Trust me, I am no better than the next person but I am SOMEBODY and so are you! Don’t go for the gusto, just set small goals and just like me you will be on your way to Fit, Fabulous and Fine!
