My weight loss journey started after I had my second son in September 2014. I had gained weight after college with my pregnancies. ( I was an emotional eater… but God has delivered me from that) I was determined to lose weight, and I had made my mind up while I was pregnant that I was going to lose it. I knew that I need to get healthy so that I could be there for my family and model a healthy lifestyle for my children. So a week after I had my son, I started walking. I have lost 55lbs….13 inches in my waist. It has taken me 6 months (but Im not done.) I still have 30 more pounds that I want to lose What I did to lose the weight: I stopped eating out, meal prepped my lunches and snacks and exercised 5 days a week. I also eat 6 well balanced meals a day. Advice: I would say just take it one day at a time…small changes add up. We didn’t gain the weight in one day…so its going to take time to loss, but stick with it. Follow me on instagram @faithfatburing for meal prep idea, emotional eating tips and motivation. My goal is to inspire others as people before me have inspired and encouraged me.
