What inspired you to start your weight loss journey?
My inspiration came when I looked back at some previous photos and noticed how much weight I’d gained over the last couple of years, compared to my high school days. That’s when I was as inspired to make a change.
What was your motivation?
My motivation is the enjoyment of feeling comfortable in my own skin. It feels amazing to be able to get dressed and not have to worry about hiding rolls and love handles anymore. To have friends and family members complementing me on my weight loss also keeps me motivated.
How did you change your eating habits?
Changing my eating habits was not easy, but I was determined. I try to say away from negative energy and I’ve learned how to say no. I gave up fast food, junk food, fried foods, beef and pork. I started eating healthy vegetables, turkey, fish, chicken and consuming at least 80 ounces of water per day.
What did your workout routine consist of?
My workout consisted of resistance training based on the exercise regimen given to me by my online trainer, King of the Fire. I worked out for at least an hour and thirty minutes each day, sometimes seven days a week.
How long did your transformation take?
My very first workout was on April 20, 2017, I started to notice a change in about four to six weeks. The transformation took about five months.
What advice do you have for others who want to lose weight?
I would advise anyone who is interested in losing weight to first consider using Fitness on Fire, the program is amazing and you will have all the support that’s needed to remain consistent with your journey.
The Fitness on Fire Online Training Program worked for me because of the support I recieved. Even though everything was done online, it was like having the fitness team right there by my side. They don’t bite their tongues and if you get off track they have no problem with keeping you focused!
