Please introduce yourself to our readers (i.e. your name, occupation, hobbies, etc.).
My name is Tanisha Avery, I’m 24 years old. I’m a wife and a mother of three.
What sparked your weight-loss transformation journey?
The day I decided to officially begin my journey was the day that I had taken my kids to in indoor playground. My daughter went all the way to the top of the tower.
She got scared and couldn’t get down on her own. She wanted me to come get her. When I tried to crawl up the tower I couldn’t fit. My daughter was freaking out and wanted me to get her down but I couldn’t.
Luckily my husband was there too, but at that point I felt like a failure.
That day I decided that I couldn’t and wouldn’t feel this way again. I decided that I need to be healthy not only for myself but for my family.
What was your beginning and current weight or measurements?
My beginning weight when I started my journey was 248 I am now currently 193. I started my journey March of 2018.
How did your eating habits change?
My eating habits changed almost immediately. Little by little I started cutting out bread, tortillas, rice, etc. I wanted to do this the right was this time, so I started out slow, and eventually I moved to a low carb diet.
I also started intermittent fasting , and going to the gym about three to four times out of the week.
How do you stay motivated?
This journey has been a tough one, I still make mistakes, I still eat what I shouldn’t sometimes, but the way I stay focused is by remembering how I used to feel about myself, and about my life.
I don’t ever want to feel that way again, and I don’t want my children to think it’s okay to feel that way.
What advice do you have for someone looking to get started with their fitness journey but not sure where to begin?
The advice I would give to anyone looking to start a weightless journey is to go at your own pace. Everyone’s journey is different. What works for some people might now work for you, but that doesn’t mean that you’re not doing enough.
Everyone ones journey is their own, find your motivation, stay consistent, and never doubt yourself!
