I started my journey in 2016, so that was four years ago.
Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
I have never had weight loss surgery. 100% natural weight loss.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
The biggest lesson that I’ve learned is to have patience! You can’t achieve long term results overnight, and putting in the work makes me appreciate the journey even more.
What advice would you like to share with women who want to lose weight?
My advice to women who want to lose weight is just START. Focus on one day at a time, one meal at a time. You didn’t gain the weight overnight, and weight loss won’t happen that quickly either. Focus on the ROUTINE, not your results, and the results will come.
