Weight Loss Story: Trinette lost 43 pounds. Her wake up call came when she was told that she was borderline for diabetes. This mom of 3 began walking, doing Zumba and changing her eating habits. Her hard work shows. Here is what she shared with us about her journey.
My name is Trinette Simpson. I’m 42 years old and I have 3 children ages 16, 8 and 4. I’ve been battling my weight all my life. The wake up call for me came in May this year when I was told I’m a borderline diabetic. I watched my dad and other relatives suffer with diabetes. I told myself, “Oh, not me.” I have enough going on already.
I began working out by doing Zumba 4 days a week (one hour each class) and walking. I started eating right, cutting out soda and junk food (I may still eat a lil sometimes..lol). I drank lots of water and started eating more baked food, more fruit and more vegetables.
I’ve gone from 232 pounds to 189 pounds. 43 pounds so far. I just wanna say that when you put your mind to it, you can do anything.
My advice: You have to stay dedicated and stick with your plan. If you slip up, don’t stop. Just continue on. I promise the results are real and you will love them. My family sees my before and after photos and they say, “I didn’t know you were that big.” I tell them, “Yes and I did something about it.” Thanks for your FB page. I love it! #inspiration
