Shalondra before and after

What was your motivation? 
My motivation was to become healthier for my family and me. My husband was diagnosed with hypertension and diabetes, so I knew we needed to make changes to our diet and exercise for him to lower his numbers without having to be on medication forever.

What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
Seeing the weight coming off and me feeling better physically keeps me motivated.

How did you change your eating habits?
Adopting the Keto diet and eating more fresh fruits and veggies is how I lost the weight. I pretty much eliminated all added sugars from my diet.
