Makieba wrote in to share that she’s lost 8 more pounds since we featured her story back in December 2013. She’s lost a total of 50 pounds. I love it when ladies write in to let us know that they have maintained their weight loss and are still going strong.
“Hi, Its Makieba Brown. I just wanted to send an updated photo of myself and let you know about my progress. I lost another 8 pounds and I’m now down to 165 pounds. I’ve learned that weight loss takes a lot of mental work that can absorb your life but for the better. You have to learn to make better choices and still enjoy the foods you love. In the last post (featured story) I didn’t mention I joined Weight Watchers. I’ve been on the program for a year now and I am a firm believer that It works. The Weight Watchers program allows you to look at food differently. However, as I stated in my previous post, I still go to the gym at least 4 times a week and love it. I also follow the program, count points and easy lots of fruits, vegetables. I also found that eating small portions is key.”
