Let’s show some Black Women Losing Weight love to Pamela! She lost 32 pounds. She credits 22 pounds of her weight loss to following our monthly challenges. Here is what she had to say about losing the weight:
In the before picture I was 202 pounds! I was losing weight slowly but it was when I started the Black Women Losing Weight challenges six months ago. That allowed me to lose 22 of my 32 pounds. I did the exercise that was given to us in the challenges! I also go to the gym at least 3 times a week. There, I do the treadmill for at least 45 minutes. At the gym, I focus on a different body part each day, but I always do abs before starting my workout.
I changed my eating habits, cutting back on sodas, junk food and fried foods. Black Women Losing Weight has really been a blessing to me and I can’t wait to start the next challenge!!
What was your motivation:
I would always asked my doctor for weight loss pills because I wanted the easy way out. Because of my high blood pressure she wouldn’t give me any. I knew I didn’t wanna continue to take blood pressure pills, so I decided to do the next best thing which was walking going to the gym. The weight was coming off slowly and then I ran across BWLW and that really got me motivated. BWLW along with husband being their to support me and work out with me was the perfect combination! Now, I have a lower dosage of blood pressure medicine. I’m gonna continue the challenges, lose weight and get off the medicine completely! My current weight is 170 pounds and my goal is 150 pounds.
