So I think I’ve decided to start a new “tab” on my blog called “Inspiration.” Maybe “Women of Inspiration.” I’d like your thoughts on that! Anyways, I feel like I know a ton of women that are reaching their goals and it’s so exciting that I want to motivate others with the progress and give encouragement to those who are working hard. So if you are reading this and you are reaching your goals, whether it’s 10 pounds, 100 pounds, walking to running, whatever! Let me know and I will do a post on your accomplishments!!
Today’s inspiration is a friend I’ve actually known my whole life. Her name is Amanda and she has a blog herself that is about raising her Autistic son. She is someone I have always looked up to and has been through a lot of things…..now another being losing weight!
Amanda has had 2 pregnancies, both boys, and carried extra weight. She finally made the change to lose it and look at her now!
Look at this woman!!! Amanda started at 176 pounds and is now at 117 pounds. Her BMI started at 31 and now it is 19.9. Her body fat is down to 15.2% (which is definitely the lowest it should be and remember everyone has different body types but typically BF for women should be above 16%) because she is rocking those weights! Her weight loss journey began only 9 MONTHS ago!
Tips about Amanda
#1 Her mantra, “I like compliments more than calories”
#2 She slowly made changes to see lasting results with exercise and made it a habit
