Chastity lost 117 pounds

 








Transformation of the Day: Chastity lost 117 pounds. After seeing herself in some vacation photos, she decided to start her transformation journey. As a Social Worker, she spends her days caring for others. The time she spends working out and meal prepping gives her a chance to focus on self-care.

What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?

I saw myself in vacation pictures, and that’s when I realized how overweight I had become. I was honest with myself and knew I needed to make a change. Just the idea of having a healthier lifestyle motivated me in the beginning. Once I started to realize how much better I felt, both mentally and physically, I knew I had to keep going. Seeing results also keep me going. As a social worker, I spend most of my day caring for other people. I see my workout/meal prepping time as the time to care for myself.

 

How did you change your eating habits?

Intermittent fasting is something I do daily. I fast at least 16 hours during the week and at least 20 on the weekends. Some days are OMAD if I’m busy and/or just not hungry. Fasting taught me to recognize true hungry cues vs. emotional eating or eating out of boredom. I strive to have a high protein diet, and I eat carbs in moderation. I drink at least a gallon of water daily.

 

What did your workout routine consist of? How often did you work out?

I work out at least six times weekly (for approximately 1.5 hours, sometimes 2). I consider rest days to be active rest days since I typically do yoga or a walk on those days. My workout routine consists of HIIT cardio, dance, Tabata, and regular weight lifting. Some of my favorite workouts are full-body kettlebell circuits and the stairclimber! I like to add resistance bands to my workouts whenever I can to grow my glutes!
