LaChica lost 90 pounds

Transformation of the Day: LaChica lost 90 pounds. She found an online challenge that gave her the nutrition and fitness guidance she was looking for. Her daughters inspired her to live a healthier life, and her husband supported her every step of the way.

I am LaChica, and I was born and raised in North Carolina. What motivated me to start my fitness journey was taking holiday pics for Christmas 2019. I hated what I saw when I received the finished product. Then, my then 4-year-old daughter asked if I was having another baby almost a year after I’d given birth to her little sister! 

I began this process by joining an online fitness challenge at the start of the pandemic (April 2020) called the Heat Challenge. The program included a meal plan and a vigorous workout schedule. 

How did you change your eating habits?
I started with Keto and stuck with it for the first eight months. Then I switched to just a low-carb meal plan. 

What is your workout routine?
I do fasted cardio in the morning. I also try to get some strength training in 3 to 4 evenings out of the week. 

What was your starting weight? What is your current weight?
My starting weight was 265 pounds, and my current weight is 175 pounds. My goal weight is 150 pounds. 

What is your height?
I am 5 ft, 8 inches tall! 

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to ignore the naysayers, doubters, and negative people who can’t do what you do how you do it! This journey is definitely not for the weak at heart. However, the results that come from the hard work, dedication, and consistency are worth all the sacrifice, blood, sweat, and tears! 

Is weight loss surgery part of your journey?
No. I am not knocking anyone for their decision to include surgery in their journey, but that was just a route I decided to skip. It may take me a little longer, but I am ok with that! 

I am so very thankful to God, my husband, who’s been by my side every single step of this journey, and my daughters for giving me a reason to live better!
