Awesome Success Story: Trinity lost 43 pounds. After her son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, she was determined to change her lifestyle and show him that he was not alone. We applaud this awesome mom. Here is what she shared with us…
I started at 240 pounds in January and I’ve lost 43 pounds. I am 5’9″ tall and I now weigh 196.8 pounds. On January 17th, my 8 year old son was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1). This unfortunate event forced me to change my eating habits and start making moves toward a healthier lifestyle. I wanted to show him that he was NOT alone.
Most of my weight loss came from eating correctly. I began eating like a diabetic. I cut out soda and juice completely as well. I only drink lemon water and green tea here and there. For exercise, I do light cardio for about 30 minutes a day. For example, I do 100 jumping jacks and I jog in place for 10 minutes.
I attempted to lose weight many times before but failed due to the lack of motivation. I knew I had to lose the weight but I didn’t know where to start or how to start. I was so addicted to food. That all changed in January when my son was diagnosed. His diagnosis gave me the push I needed. My back was up against the wall and I had NO CHOICE.
I am blessed today as I share this story with you guys. I feel so much better now. I wake up with so much more energy, I don’t get tired as fast and I am able to chase after my children without feeling winded right away.
My advice to anyone who is struggling with weight loss: It will Not work Unless you are Truly dedicated and really serious about losing the weight. Think of reasons why you NEED to lose the weight and push forward. You can do anything that you put your mind to and I am living proof of that. Bless you all.
