Before and After of the Day: Tenisha lost 68 pounds after a divorce. She has seen improvement in a number of health issues she suffered from. This sister even grew her own food! Now that is a lifestyle change! Here is what she shared with us:
“Hi my name is Tenisha Baker. I started my weight loss journey in January 2012. I did it for health reasons and to look and feel better. I had just came out of a nineteen year marriage. I found out that he cheated on me with a co-worker and didn’t want to be married anymore, but he wanted me to stay for financial reasons. Needless to say I left with my six children and hoped for the better.
Before my transformation I had many health problems. I was severely asthmatic and always on steroids. I was hyper allergic to almost everything. I suffered with IBS, Alopecia areata, CHRONIC UTI, vitamin D deficiency, and more.
After leaving my husband, I started eating right. I began growing my own vegetables in a garden and ate from it. I grew cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, spinach and different types of lettuce. I also embraced exercising at home. I spent $0.00 dollars at a gym because I could not afford it or find the time to get there and still be a mom. I also ran in my neighborhood.
I’m excited to say that I am 68 pounds lighter with all medical problems disappearing except the alopecia. I’m happy, beautiful and healthy by my and my doctors standards. My doctor has also asked me to talk to her patients too. Women should never give up on themselves. Put all of your excuses away. [Btw, I’m now in love too…]”
