What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?

My motivation is my kids! I wanted to be healthy and happy for them. I wanted to be able to play with them without being tired or not able to keep up. They are my inspiration.

 

How did you change your eating habits?

When I started on my journey, I cut out fast food, sweets, junk food, and soda. I also cut back on my carb intake, and I only drink water. All of my food is baked food. I started to eat more fruits and vegetables. Whenever I had a sweet tooth, I used fruit as a substitute.

 

What did your workout routine consist of? How often did you work out?

In the beginning, it was a slow process. I began by walking every day. I would walk as far as my body would let me. Slowly, I started to incorporate jogging into my routine. When I lost a little weight and got more comfortable, I started taking Zumba classes at a fitness center three days a week. These classes helped me lose a tremendous amount of weight. Then, I started working with a personal trainer, and she helped me lose even more weight. Now I’m a personal trainer myself, and I work out six days a week.
