Lashyra’s Weight Loss Story!

When did you become unhappy with your weight?
My weight has been going up since I met my boyfriend and I have not done anything about it in 7 years. I have tried before and just stopped and gave up.

What made you decide to lose weight?
I went to Miami in August of 2011 and I was just unhappy. I could not understand that at the age of 25, I had let myself go. As soon as I got back from Miami, I started my diet.

What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
When I started my diet, I cut out a lot of carbs. I was eating lean meat, fruits and veggies. I stopped drinking sodas and fruit drinks. I started working out at home doing different workout videos and once I lost 40 pounds, I started going to the gym.

What was most challenging about losing weight?
I have 3 small kids (ages 3,8,10) and because they eat anything, it was hard on the weekends to stay on my diet. Since they did not understand what I was doing, it was hard trying to make two different dinners every night.

How long did it take you to start to see results?
It was around 3 months before I notice a change in my size.

How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
It took me 7 months to reach my current weight.

How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
I am still maintaining my weight and I’m still working out everyday.

How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
It is so much better! I have so much energy and I can do more with my kids now. I love going
shopping also.
