Today’s weight loss success story: Shovann lost 63 pounds. This proud Nurse was motivated by seeing the weight-related illnesses affecting her patients and wanting to live a healthier lifestyle. Here is what she shared about her weight loss journey:
“My Name is Shovann Staton. I’m a 34 year old Nurse that was inspired to loose weight after topping the scale at 253 pounds and wearing a 2x top and size 22 in pants. I felt like I lost who I was and I thought how can I save lives and not my own? What Motivated me was that I decided to live Healthy and after seeing more younger patients with Diabetes, Heart Disease and Hypertension. I felt it was a great time to take my life in a better direction.
With that being said I’ve lost a total thus far of 63 pounds and I’m now wearing size 12 pants and large tops. I am looking forward to weight training in the next few weeks. My diet consist of 125g of protein and no more than 50 carbs daily. I also drink 2 Liters of Water a day. Faith and prayer have taken me far. I started this Regime 6/16/13 and look forward to my new lifestyle. Healthy living is not a get slim quick scheme, It’s a way of life. My advice: Keep healthy snacks on hand and pack your meals daily. Don’t get discouraged. Even if you mess up, acknowledge your faults and pick up the pieces. Enjoy at least 30-45 min of cardio daily, eat healthy clean and watch that fat vanish…”
