I’m Tiffany “Wildkat” Williams and I started at 297 and I’m 188 now! I’m on my way to 145!! I tried everything including 2 surgeries that didn’t work so now I watch what I eat and workout religiously! I exercise no less then 2 hours a day except on Sunday. I do several kinds of dance including belly dancing and pole. I also lift weights and do Zumba and a slew of other classes! Love your page and thanks for the positive images and stories you post!
I tried everything to lose weight! I’ve done all the fad diets, the pills, two surgeries! I had the lap band first and when that failed I had it removed and had a gastric bypass. The bypass failed as well because I had intestinal issues. So i did lose some weight but I lost it very slowly. I was 297 at my heaviest and 275 when I had the bypass and 3 years later I was only down to 186. To put it in perspective I know people who had surgery within weeks of mine and 9 months later went from 255 to 135! Surgery just was not the right choice for me and I was counting calories and working out like crazy! Then 2 years after surgery I was back at 248!
I’ve been heavy my entire life I just finally have all the pieces of my puzzle together. I used to workout all the time and eat poorly or starve myself and not workout at all. I was finally successful with a healthy diet and working out 6 days a week for 2-4 hours a day! I have now gotten down to 184 and I am on my way to 145! I eat lots of protein, fresh fruits and veggies. I add protein shakes in as well. I stay away from “whites” bread, potatoes, rice etc. I eat multi grain breads in moderation and yams and brown rice. I also cut out sugar, salt and processed foods as much as possible. I will eat a fresh apple instead of applesauce for example. Processed foods have a lot of hidden sugar and sodium. I do Zumba, pole fitness, elliptical HIIT plans, running, weight lifting, kick boxing, yoga and Pilates just to name a few. I need variety to keep myself entertained lol! I guess I’ve been working on my transformation “seriously” for about 4 years now. Thanks for sharing! I love your page!
