Patrina lost 31 pounds. This proud mom and grandmom used her grandson as motivation to fight obesity. Here is what she shared with us:
My name is Patrina (PJ) and I’ve been living the healthy lifestyle since April 2012. I weighed in at 205 pounds. I am now at 174 pounds. It’s been a journey but one I will not give up on. I’m 37 years old and I have a 3 month old grandbaby that I want to see grow up and play with. He has been my motivation as well as not be a statistic for obesity. I want to lose about 30/40 more lbs. I went from a 16w and now wearing a size 14 comfortably. Trying to get to a size 10/12 and about 155/160. Took a physical for insurance and they stayed I am in perfect healthy just need to lose weight because by their charts I’m obese.
This picture is a 6 months difference. I did this with diet and now exercising 5 times a week. Still have 20 more pounds I want to lose. This page/pictures and stores have been a great motivation to me. Thanks for creating this page for Black Women.
