What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going when you wanted to give up?
My motivation is wanting to be healthy and being comfortable in the skin I’m in. I want to look into the mirror and be proud of what I see. Not shying away from pictures, and being able to run around and play with my 3-year-old son motivates me.

I stopped drinking soda and drank a gallon of water each day. I also limited my bread and carb intake. I did the X28 online program.

When did you start your journey? How long did your transformation take?
I started in July 2018, but I’ve been on my journey for two years, on and off. Consistency is key. I did the 28-day challenge several times and saw a HUGE difference by staying consistent.
Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
NO. Nothing but a good diet and exercise. I did this naturally, and I got this far because I’m hungry for it! And I’ll continue to work until I reach my goals.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
I’ve learned never to give up, no matter how hard it gets. No matter how tired I get, I have to PUSH!
Fitness is all about having the right mental attitude. It starts in your mind. Stay disciplined and consistent, and you’ll be shocked by the goals that you reach!
