Na’ Tasha lost 32 pounds
Na’ Tasha lost 32 pounds. When the pandemic slowed the world down, she took the time to focus on herself. With her coach’s help, she adopted healthier eating habits, used portion control, and became dedicated to working out.
What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
I’ve always been overweight, but it never bothered me because I was confident in who I was. When Covid-19 hit and the world as we knew it shut down, that allowed me to focus on myself, which is not something I do often being a single mom to a special needs child.
I’d been following Terry Starks since January and saw the results his clients achieved. I decided I wanted in. This journey hasn’t been easy, but it is worth the results.
How did you change your eating habits?
I used portion control and made healthier food choices. I ate chicken breast, brown rice, fruit, and vegetables (something I definitely struggled with).
What did your workout routine consist of? How often did you work out?
Prior to working with Terry, my workout routine didn’t exist. Now, I have started to dedicate my days and nights to working out twice a day, doing either light cardio or a more structured workout routine. I also enjoy walking in the park and, yes, even the occasional jog (I waited till I was 40 years old to start running).
What was your starting weight? What is your current weight?
My starting weight was 296 pounds, and today I am down to 264. I’ve lost countless inches, but I failed to measure that in the beginning.
What is your height?
I like to say I’m 5’6″. Honestly, I’ve lied so long not wanting to be “short” that I don’t really know.
When did you start your journey? How long did your transformation take?
I started my journey with Terry Starks on April 6, 2020. I am still currently working his plan.
Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
No surgery is not a part of my journey. I’ve never wanted to go the surgery route, even when I wasn’t motivated. I understood that if I wanted to change, it would have to be a lifestyle change, and no surgery will make that change stick unless your mind is strong prior.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
Consistency is key. I didn’t gain the weight in one day, so I certainly won’t lose it in a day.
What advice do you have for women who want to lose weight?
Find your motivation and get to it. You can’t wait or rely on anyone but yourself. Be your own motivation.
