“For breakfast I would have lots of chocolatey donuts," she said. "I would have orange juice filled with sugar. For lunch I’d have lots of pizza pockets, chips, lots of soda — I was like addicted to soda. I would literally just eat whatever, whenever I wanted to, however much I wanted to.”
The single mom cut back on her carb intake and portion sizes. Now, a typical breakfast is turkey sausage with a whole grain English muffin and banana.
Lunch is a salad with grilled chicken and dinner is turkey meatballs and spinach.
“Watching that weight fall off, I felt amazing and it just gave me so much motivation to just keep pushing,” she said.
