Transformation of the Day: Delesha lost 53 pounds. This mom wanted to transform, not only physically but spiritually and mentally as well. She realized that along with unhealthy food, she had to give up toxic attachments and toxic emotions as well. Check out her story.
When did you start your journey?
I began my journey on September 27, 2018, and I’m still going.
What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
My inspiration to lose weight is my children. I also wanted to grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. I had to leave my past in the past and realize that it wasn’t just about losing weight. It’s also about attachments – negative emotions, insecurities, negative energies, and even toxic people. Material things will come and go but what you gain spiritually is always going to be there.
How did you change your eating habits?
I stopped eating meat and bread. I also stopped eating out. Instead, I started fasting and eating fruits and vegetables.
What is your workout routine?
I get up at 6:30 in the morning to do a light workout. For cardio, I walk to the park and then work out when I get to the park.
What was your starting weight? What is your current weight?
My starting weight was 260 pounds, and my current weight is 207 pounds.
What is your height?
My height is 5’2″.
Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
No surgery. I wanted to learn patience while on my journey — no hate to people who have had surgery, of course.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
I’m still in on my journey, but I’m learning more and more that it’s not just the weight. This process is spiritual and mental. It will set you free!
What advice would you like to share?
I want to let women who are struggling with their weight know that you have to get rid of attachments and learn to love who you are! When you hit rock bottom, use that as a foundation to build your empire of self.
Also, we need to realize how important our bodies are because we only get one. Don’t give up when it seems like your weight loss isn’t happening fast enough. Patience and consistency are key. Know thy God will never leave you.
