Weight Loss Story of the Day: Showna lost 134 pounds. This proud mom became a workout fanatic and is now studying to be personal trainer. Here is her story and her before and after photos:
“Hi BWLW. I would like to say I love your page. I’m also a BWLW and I love it!! Just a little of my history. I started my weight loss journey about 22 months ago. Since then I’ve lost 134lbs. I love. I feel great my health is great which was my main reason for working out. I will start studying to get certified to become a professional trainer at the end of September. I’m very excited about that. Can wait to help & change others lives the way mine has been changed. I’m very grateful for my support.
My weight loss motivation was that I was tired of going to the doctor and hearing that I needed to loss weight. My knees hurt on a regular with the extra weight. Found out that every pound you lose is like 4 lbs off each knee. That was like music to my ears. I’ve lost 134 pounds total in 22 months. I follow my meal plans to a T. All green veggies w/turkey chicken & fruits. I love working out. I work out everyday but Sunday, and some days I workout 2-3 times a day. I really enjoy bootcamp. I’m a hardcore workout type of girl. Lol. My starting weight was 303 lbs:(. Not happy about that. The advice I have for others is to never stop. Set your ultimate goal and don’t give up till u reach it. Make up in your mind this will be a life changing event. Not for a wedding or trip but to add years to your life. To be fit is a way of life and you have to stay determined everyday. If u fall off, jump right back on. Never quit!!!
Everyday is hard for me because I have a family and a child who needs more help than most kids do. It takes him awhile to get it. My health is very important to me because I want to be around for a long time for him. I make working out a part of my daily routine just like I get up everyday to work for someone else. I make sure I get up and workout for myself. I’m up at 4am for my classes so I take them serious. Working out helps me cope with day to day things since I work with the public. It’s the only thing I’m completely in control of. I determine what my weight will be no matter how hard I have to work at it. People told me “you will never be able to lose your butt”. haha! I have loss a lot of my butt and thighs. Thanks once again. I totally appreciate your page. It always gives me hope and I hope I can help others.”
