Weight Loss Success Story of the Day: Tanieka lost 80 pounds going from a size 24 to a size 8. Here is what she shared about her weight loss journey:
“I started my weight loss journey a year ago and have lost 80 pounds. I started realizing that my weight was just going to keep going up if I don’t do something soon about it. I was a single mom with three kids slowly going down hill and takin care of everybody else but myself. I logged on to a weight loss site called My fitness pal and figured I would give it a try. I met friends along the way who gave me wonderful advice.
I workout 5 days a week, and eat around 1500 to 1600 calories a day. A lot of my meals consist of chicken, fish, turkey and veggie meats, along with lots of fruits and vegetables. I don’t eat a lot of carbs, pasta or breads. I do have a cheat day during the week which keeps my cravings at ease when I want something not so healthy to eat. Weight loss is not a race, is a Journey. Slow and steady will get you there, it will give you the willpower to keep at it.
P.S..This photo was a year ago at my brothers wedding. I was a size 24 and now I am a size 8. The dress looks like a trash bag on me now..LOL!!!”
