When I was 18 years old. I got on a birth control shot call the depo shot at the age of 15. I picked up over 100 pounds and 4 years.
HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE? I was very embarrassed I didn’t want to be around no one. I didn’t like taking pictures I was very self-conscious
WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY? I went to the doctor and he told me I was 18 years weighing 254 pounds. He said I was obese
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED? I throw away junk I wasn’t eating anything but cabbage greens and drinking water. I started working out in my bedroom Day night twice a day. I was using the BLACK GIRLS WORK OUT TOO DVD & Billy Blanks DVD.
HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS? Within a month I drop 54 pounds just from working out day and night from my bedroom using the BLACK GIRLS WORK OUT TOO DVD & Billy blank DVD. I really wasn’t eating much and I know it wasn’t healthy but I had to do what was working for me.
WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART? I just had to get use to exercising in the gym around other people.
DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING? My kids kept me motivated
DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES? The scale is the devil lol
WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER? All I did was eat and sleep. I was eating enough food to feed 4 people. But it was the depo shot had me gaining all of that weight.
HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER? Now I’m very active I stay in the gym. When I was heavier I probably would have got mad if someone ask me to go walking. Lol
