Down nearly 100lbs! Check out Kimberly's amazing weight loss story!!

Much love, 
Tiff



What motivated you to lose weight and how much have you lost?

My motivation was first me not being able to be active without getting tired and having no energy. Secondly, I was not happy with the way I look. I was too young and felt so self-conscious.  In 2011 I weighed 280 and today my current weight is 183 so its not a overnight process it takes time to drop it and even harder to keep it off!



What did you do to lose weight?

I first started taking phentermine pills that I feel is now the absolute worst way! The pills caused me to over eat when I stop taking them and gained all the weight back. I then found the only way to drop the weight was taking it back to the roots Cardio & Healthy eating! I downloaded the "lose it" app to count my calories for my desired goal weight and begin walking everyday. I set a goal to walk an extra mile each day. I once walked 10 miles in one day! I did not join a gym until a year later after my weight loss.



 What are some of your favorite meals, food items or snacks when dieting?

My favorite meals are..
Tilapia fish baked with broccoli and brown rice
Tyson precooked grill chicken strips, which I eat on a whole grain tortillas with lettuce and low fat shredded cheese
Special K cereal with a banana
Oatmeal with blueberries
I snack on fruits and baby carrot sticks.
I learned that all those 100 calorie snacks are not good for the body due to artificial sugar, gluten, and fructose. I just recently this 2014 year cutting out all quick package snacks. I traded them in for grapes, oranges, apples, strawberries, etc.
Lastly removing all juices and soda out and moving in water water and water!



Did you follow any weight loss “rules”? (ie. no eating after 5, no carbs, etc)

Only weight loss rule I try to maintain is not going over my calorie intake.



In your opinion, what is the hardest thing about weight loss?

Hardest thing with weight loss was balancing my social life with my weight loss journey. Friends and family have many events that cause temptation with my eating habits. Its hard to resist soul food, pastries, and restaurant dinners.



 What are some of the joys of being at a healthier weight?

My number one joy is fashion! I can wear heels without having painful feet due to being overweight the pressure and strain on my feet. Plus, a bigger variety of clothes to choose from..hehe



If you could leave readers with a word of advice or any tips, what would it be?

Make it a mission by turning it into a life changing lifestyle, for not just you but for your children, peers, family.

  3. You looked lovely before but more stunning with your new outlook on life and fitness. Congratulations for being such a role model to every women here. I also struggled with losing weight, but with the help of the 3 Day Military diet, I was able to count calories and watch my food portion. I love how I was able to be weaned from sugar and see the importance of goals and exercise. Thanks again for this lovely post.
