I celebrate me on this day.”
Today’s weight loss before and after story: Sharresa lost 65 pounds with calorie counting, exercise DVDs and changing her eating habits. Here is what she shared with us:
Well, I started my change of lifestyle on November 29, 2011. I’m screaming to the top of my LUNGS, “I did it!”. It took 1 year for my lifestyle change!!! I went from 196.5 lbs pounds to my current weight of 131.5 pounds (just got on the scale). I lost over 65lbs!! Yes, truly happy & will enjoy this day to the fullest!! I’m currently signed up with MFP (myfitnesspal.com) and my calorie intake per day is 1200. I started off doing basic cardio. Then I did Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shed DVD, walked 2-3 miles per day and drank between 8-10 8oz of water per day. No fast food, no junk food, everything is either baked, broiled, or grilled. I then started on Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 DVD, did more cardio, Zumba class, Wii Fit, bike riding and jogging. Now that I have exceeded my goal weight, I have started with doing some Insanity and a lot of strength training to tone up my body. To date, I’m able to do 3.5 miles (run/jog). My goal is to get up to 5 miles and continue to increase my strength training. Now, my water intake is anywhere between 12-13 8 oz. of water.
