Home: Los Angeles
Age: 36, mom of one
Pounds Lost: 20 pounds
Weight Wake-Up Call: I saw pro boxer Manny Pacquiao step on a scale before a fight and realized I weighed as much as he did!
How I Lost It: My best friend asked me to do a POUND workout with her. It's a cardio class that uses weighted drumsticks. That session kicked my butt. Still, I couldn't stop smiling and was hooked. Eating six small meals a day, never skipping breakfast and logging workouts and snacks on the MyFitnessPal app also helped. In 10 months I was a new woman.
Favorite Workout Move: The back kick twist: It's an ab twist with alternating leg raises that works your entire core all at once.
Go-to Healthy Dish: Turkey meatloaf muffins: ground turkey mixed with seasonings and baked in a muffin tray, with veggies on the side.
Fun Thing I Can Do Now: I became a certified POUND instructor! I love seeing that I'm making a difference in my students' lives.
Stay-Motivated Mantra: Be an inspiration.
