1. Name: Debbie Olutola
2. Age: 39
3. Height: 5′ 11
4. Before weight: 230 Lbs.
5. How I gained it: Lack of discipline when it comes to food.
6. Breaking point: Why you decided to set fitness goals: I did not feel good looking at myself in the mirror compared to what I looked like before I gained the weight. Also I had severe high blood pressure for my age which was uncalled for due to my weight. I had to make change because no one will but myself. Health is wealth.
7. How I lost it: I changed my food routine totally. I went on a low fat diet, no carbs for sometime and lots of water. I also started working out in the park and the gym, I did not do anything strenuous just fast walking for two hours in the evenings and in the morning whatever exercise I am comfortable with on YouTube for about 20 mins.
8. After weight: 175 Lbs.
9. What surprised me the most about this journey: The way I started to loose this weight due to focus, dedication and determination…now I truly believe what my Dad used to say then that anything feasible can be achieved with the necessary commitment and persistence. Don’t quit.
