Shatina lost 60 pounds. This young lady wants to inspire single mothers, teachers, open-heart surgery survivors and people who have thyroid issues with her story. Check out her journey.
What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
My motivation was trying to live a long and healthy life. I wanted to inspire not only other people who struggle with their weight but also single mothers, teachers, open-heart surgery survivors and people who have thyroid issues. When I feel like giving up, I look at old pictures of myself and I encourage myself in the mirror by telling myself, “You got this Beautiful.”
How did you change your eating habits?
I alternate between months: One month is no meat. Then, the next month is nothing white such as rice, potatoes, pasta, and bread.
