What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
My biggest motivation was my children. I could not participate in any outside activities with my children because I was short of breath. I also have arthritis in both knees and high blood pressure. 

How did you change your eating habits?
Before I started working out, I changed my eating habits for 30 days: no bread, rice, pasta, sweets, or soda. I only ate healthy carbs, baked sweet potatoes, and brown rice. I drank water and maintained a calorie deficit. 

What did your workout routine consist of? How many days a week did you work out?
I work out six days a week: three days of cardio and three days of weight lifting. What was your starting weight?

What is your current weight?
My starting weight was 325 pounds. Today I weigh 174 pounds. So as of today, I’ve lost a total of 151 pounds.

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?

What advice would you like to share with women who want to lose weight?
The only advice I could give another woman is don’t give up on yourself because if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.
