Losing Weight With Oprah
In 2016 my weight loss journey began full throttle after I was chosen to share my weight loss story with O Magazine.I was put on the April cover with brave women alongside Oprah and the rest was history.
Here is my behind the scenes photo one year later at the @oprahmagazine shoot. This particular follow up picture didn’t make the April issue but I just had to do a side by side comparison. . I have been having a rough week and eating terrible so I just wanted to give myself a reminder of how far I have come, forgiving myself of anything and moving forward in my personal progress. . #OneDayAtATime #onepoundatatime #wellnesswednesday #weightlossjourney #healthandfitness #transformation #progresspicture #brownfitmama #oprahmagazine
The day was complete with goodies from our sponsors at @oprahmagazine @fijiwater @getcrackin @pipernilli and @drinkverday that all the guest enjoyed!!! 🙏🏾 Many thanks 🙏🏾 . #livingwithheart #sponsors #omag #fijiwater #wonderfulpistachios #pipernillicookies #verdaywater #laughinglotusnyc
What a difference a year makes. 50lbs ago when I first started my weight loss journey. I trained with @erikacartolano at @equinox I definitely miss them but it was a great start to my road ahead 💪🏾 . #wellnesswednesday #weightlossjourney #discipline #brownfitmama
I had the Up 3 provided by O magazine to help me keep track of my steps along the way.
Danielle DeSimone was my nutritional guide who I sat down with as she guided me in the right direction of a meal plan for the week. My time with them had been incredibly invaluable and I was able to enjoy a membership sponsored by them for one year.
Fiji has been a generous sponsor in supporting my fitness events this past year. They kept everyone hydrated at Sisterhued’s Fall Into Fitness event .After some deep stretches and meditation guest at my Living With Heart workshop with Laughing Lotus enjoyed Fiji water.

A look ahead
Now I have to take what I have learned and apply it. I still have setbacks by I know it’s best to keep moving forward. I remember vividly in December of 2015 saying to myself I am gonna lose weight with Oprah. I was speaking it into existence and I am grateful the way my dreams came true. Click To Tweet
My thoughts now in December of 2017 is what’s next, how can I dream beyond my wildest dream because I feel like that was the type of year I ‘ve just had.
