Transformation of the Day: Check out this update from Shanisha. She has worked hard to lose 133 pounds. We’ve followed her journey since Sept 2021, when she shared how she lost 50 pounds before VSG surgery. She is truly committed to healthy eating habits and exercise, crediting her trainer for helping her get results.
What is your current weight?
My current weight is 241 pounds as of today.
How have you maintained your weight loss/continued to lose weight?
I continue to meal prep my foods and eat 1200 calories a day. I noticed during this journey that when my body is under stress, my weight will stall. So I make sure that I eat all three of my meals and two snacks in between my meals.
I work out five days a week, including three days with my personal trainer. Without my trainer, I wouldn’t be 133 pounds down.
Which of the lessons you’ve learned on your journey stands out the most at this point?
I have learned that it’s very easy to regain weight after it’s gone. I also learned to eat sweets one day a week and how to hold myself accountable for everything.
Losing weight is not an easy task. Don’t ever think it’s easy to lose weight. It was easy putting the weight on and very hard to take it off. Since I have been on my weight loss journey, I have lost my relationship of 12 years. The goals you want for yourself may not be the goals someone else wants for you.
I’m learning how to be by myself again, work two jobs, be a full-time mother, work out, and continue to lose weight. I didn’t know that my life and body would change so much. I’m learning new things every day on this journey. I have turned my heartbreak into my source of energy.
I’m not done yet. I have another 61 pounds to lose, and I will hit my 180-pound mark no matter what.
