Transformation of the Day: Ronique lost 150 pounds. This entrepreneur needed the stamina to deal with a busy schedule that includes lots of walking and working long days and nights. She released with weight over the course of 2 years with healthier choices and lots of exercise. Check out what she shared with us.
What was your motivation?
My motivation was being tired of being tired! I work at a hospital and I own a catering and event planning company. I really needed to be ready for lots of walking and working long days and nights. I also didn’t just want people to say, “She’s fat, but she cute in the face.”
How did you change your eating habits?
I eat less but I eat more frequently. When my husband and I go out to eat, I order my meal and when it comes to the table I put half of it in a to-go bad. Then, I enjoy the other half as my meal. I’m not on a specific eating plan, but I do cleanse my body once every couple months with some Phillips to get rid of some of that food that’s trapped. I watch my carb intake as well.
What do your workout routines look like?
I work out 3-4 times a week for 45 minutes per session. I do a lot of cardio, walk the steps and park far away to get more exercise in.
Starting weight/Current weight
In August 2015, My starting weight was 315 pounds at 5’3″. My current weight is 165 pounds as of August 2017. I even went down 2 shoe sizes. In the past, I wore a 3X in clothing and a size 10 in shoes. Now, I wear a size 10-12 and my shoe size is 8-81/2.
How long did your transformation take?
It took me 2 years to lose this weight.
What advice do you have for other women who want to lose weight?
