Find out how Tina started her fitness journey and changed her life for good.
“This health journey is a daily, sometimes hourly battle & you have to change your mind set, food intake, circle of people around you & REMEMBER ITS FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH not a number or ‘size’… It’s hard to believe that I’ve gone from a size 22 headed to size 24 (2x-3x). Now I’m a size 6/8 (medium/small).” @tkakamzk2u
Please introduce yourself to our readers.
My name is Tina and I have lost 94 pounds. But most importantly I’ve learned and gain and healthy lifestyle FOR LIFE!!!
What sparked your weight-loss transformation journey?
What was your starting weight? What’s your current weight?
How did your eating habits change?
What do you typically eat for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner?
So a typical day maybe a veggie egg white omelette and two slices of turkey bacon. for snacks I may have 2 tablespoons of pb2 peanut butter and 1 oz of berries, for lunch it could vary between a salad with lime dressing homemade or a beanless turkey chili, for a afternoon snack I will have a protein shake usually chocolate (premier or pure protein) because it fixes my chocolate craving and has very low sugar ( made with unsweetened almond milk); dinner could be air fried salmon & veggies.
What’s your fave fitness activity?
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned along this journey?
I’ve learned for ME…that I need to take time to eat my meals (at least 20-30 minutes), and stop drinking at least 30 minutes before I eat. When it comes to weight loss and fitness, everything doesn’t work for everyone, and it definitely doesn’t work as we get older and enter new stages of our lives.
What advice do you have for someone who wants to get started with their fitness journey but don’t know where to start?
