Transformation of the Day: Brandy lost 37 pounds. She wanted to regain her confidence and avoid a family history of illnesses like high blood pressure and high cholesterol. So she made practical changes to her eating habits and worked out five days a week. The key to her success has been consistency.
My name is Brandy Rose, and I’m 32 years old. I want to share my weight loss journey to help inspire others.
What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
I became overweight after giving birth to my son, which caused me to lack the confidence that I once had. I even hated my reflection in the mirror. But, ultimately, I realized that to take care of my family, I first have to take care of myself.
What inspired me to get started was the health conditions that run on both sides of my family, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
How did you change your eating habits?
I began meal prepping and using a low-carb diet. I measured all my meals, tracked my calorie intake, and practiced intermittent fasting.
What did your workout routine consist of? How many days a week did you work out?
I work out five days a week doing cardio and weightlifting. I love to work out at 5:30 am before work because I learned that time works best for me.
What was your starting weight? What is your current weight?
My starting weight was 203 pounds, and my current weight is 166 pounds.
What is your height?
I am 5’2″.
When did you start your journey? How long did your transformation take?
I started my journey in November 2019.
Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
No, I didn’t have weight loss surgery.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
I learned to only take it one day at a time and tackle small goals first. Consistency is key!
What advice would you like to share with women who want to lose weight?
The best advice for women who want to lose weight is “JUST START!” You don’t have to be perfect or know what you are doing.
Again, consistency is the key. With that, results will come, but it takes time.
