I would like help in spreading a positive message about the importance of health, fitness and physical activity especially in the black community. Here is my story.

“I have been overweight my entire life. Even while playing sports. Until after I stopped playing basketball I blew up to my heaviest in 5 years. I decided that I was done being unhappy and decided to change my LIFE. I’m documenting my weight loss journey on IG to let people know the ups AND the downs to show them that it won’t be easy or perfect but it will be worth it. I’ve worked hard to lose about 80lbs since my heaviest at 303lbs. I just want to show people it’s possible. @calidreamfitness.”

My name is Linda and about six years ago I was not happy with who I had become. My mother passed away in 2000 I was angry because she left me here.  I ate everything in sight from Little Debbie Snack cakes to bags and bags of M & M’s.  I didn’t care who called me out my name the only thing I cared about was eating.  I had a so called friend or so I thought she would insult me and i would sit there and laugh even though it hurt me the most.  As long as I ate and laughed at the jokes I accepted what people did to me.  I was in school and I had a professor ask me if I was a gay because I am over 40 and i wasn’t married.  It hurt and yes I felt so empty.  My mother would often say to me when you get tired you will do something about you and I did.  Even though I was over weight I took Yoga 3 days a week and a dance class 2 days a week.  I was at my heaviest at 263lbs I didn’t have a trainer.  While in college I had the yoga professors look at me as if I was something foreign and yes there were insults so I went to the very back of the class.  See even though I was over weight I was a dancer all through my youth but never had the money to follow my dreams.  I was still limber enough to do every move that was presented to me.  The professors would look at me as if how can she accomplish this as large as I was.  I come from very meager beginnings but I managed to get to where i am right now, through God, meditation and your inspirational photos.  Thank you!  Here is my before Picture and an after picture.  I still have work to do but it is no longer a struggle for me and now I pass by Little Debbie and smile….. My before picture and my after picture!!!

9 months ago I decided to change my life! I was overweight and miserable and has lost control of my body and my eating habits. I did a lot of research and immediately started to change my lifestyle. Since last year June I have managed to lose 45 lbs and 6 dress sizes. I love my high protein, low carb diet and exercise program. I still enjoy life but I make sure that I fuel my body with nutritious food and that I stay active. I almost gave up after one month because I didn’t see results but I am SO grateful that I kept going and stayed consistent I am so happy to have knowledge about my own body and what works for me. Never feel pressured to be a certain size, do what’s right for you and strive towards a better, healthier you! You can do it! I aspire to inspire others with my story! I’m not an expert or a fitness guru, just an ordinary woman on an extraordinary fitness journey!
