Weight Loss Success Story of the Day: Quiana has lost 75 pounds since April. She credits her success to finding a great support group, leaning on God, working out hard and changing her eating habits. Read more about her journey…
Hello, my name is Quiana Harris and I began my journey in April of this year. I decided to take back control of my life and it is the best decision I have made. To date I have lost 75 lbs and I still have 100 more to lose. I know there is no way I could have done this without God and my Fit Nation family.
My motivation is that I want to live a long healthy life. I want to be around for a long time for the important people in my life. I had made so many excuses before and now with me losing 70+ lbs I know I have no more room for excuses. I choose to live and not die. My highest weight ever (and I have never told anyone this) was 368 pounds and now I’m 293 pounds. I now know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I used Herbalife products to help me jumpstart my journey. I have also switched to low carbs. My eating it’s not all the way where it should be, but I’m human. I still have cheat days but I am no where near how I use be. I started working out with Fit Nation in May of this year 2014 and I have never been around a group of positive and motivating people in my life. I started my journey in April, and by May I had lost 15 lbs. With the help of Toye Bogard, the founder and CEO of Biggest Loser Memphis, is how I lost the rest of my weight and I’m still going to work because I have another 100 lbs I need to lose. From April of this year until October I lost the weight and what I can say is that it’s not easy but it is necessary. With persistence and hard work you can achieve anything and I’m a witness to that.
