What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
Self-love! Post-partum depression almost made me end it all. I gave up, and I threw the towel in, but God said, “Chill.” This momma reclaimed her time, and I’m forever grateful for the change.
How did you change your eating habits?

I did fasted cardio three days a week and weight training 4-5 days a week.

My starting weight was 220 pounds, and my current weight is 169 pounds.

When did you start your journey?
2017 was a year of trying and giving up. In 2018, I said enough is enough. Make sacrifices, and you will get results.

A little over a year.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
I can achieve any goal I set my mind to.
What advice do you have for people who want to lose weight?
Have patience. The weight didn’t come overnight, and it won’t leave overnight. Also, be open to advice. Listen, grow, twist it, and make your own vibe. Keep going, Sis! Your best you is inside. Just push it out
