What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
My motivation: I wanted to find a way to get through my anxiety and depression. Working out motivates me each day to push through and fight through it all. The results I achieved and being an inspiration to others inspire me.
How did you change your eating habits?
I started to count my macronutrients to focus more on building muscle and losing body fat. I still enjoy foods I love, just in moderation and calculating them in my macros!
How often did you work out?
I work out five days a week.
What is your workout routine?
My workout routine consists of strength training and HIIT-style cardio. I do leg exercises with heavy weights three days a week, and upper body exercises two days a week. I also work out with my coach, Alphas Only (Instagram @alphasonly.eb), who has also been a tremendous aid in my journey and fitness goal!
What was your starting weight? What is your current weight?
The funny thing is…My starting weight was 230 lbs, and I weigh 225 lbs now! I realize the scale isn’t what is always important because my body is changing based on the muscle mass and body fat I’m Losing!
What is your height?
I am 5’5″.
When did you start your journey? How long did your transformation take?
I actually started working out back in 2014. I’ve been up and down on my journey and different body phases throughout. Once I locked in and became consistent, it took almost a year to two years to get a good transformation. I still have a ways to go!
Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that this is not a race but a lifestyle! You must show up for yourself, look at it as a journey, and embrace it.
What advice do you have for women who want to lose weight?
The advice I would give is to do what’s best for you and do it for you!
