Fitspiration: Zoe’s Before and After

Avatar • Oct 7, 2013

Every Monday we will be teaming up with Black Women Losing Weight to share stories of naturals who are taking care of their bodies as well as their hair.

ZoeSept

College student Zoe lost 126 pounds by working out at home doing workout DVDs and eating clean. She is now full of self-confidence. Here is what she shared about her weight loss journey:

Hi, I’m 20 years old and a junior at UAlbany. My journey started in 2011. All my life I was overweight. In middle school my mom took me to Weight Watchers, but after I lost some weight I stopped going and gained it back. In high school I tried different programs but I always gained the weight back. At my highest weight I was 287 pounds.

Towards the end of my senior year I decided to buy Hip Hop Abs. I lost around 20 pounds and actually kept it off. So when I started college I knew there were healthy options available and wanted to change my diet and continue to work out. Eventually, I fell in love with TurboJam and along with clean eating and the weight fell off.

Congrats Zoe, you look amazing and love the hair!

I’ve re-committed myself to a lifestyle of probiotics, tons of lean protein, low carbs, green smoothies, salads and good fats. I’m also getting back into yoga and pilates and just bought a bike and a hula hoop! Really love this feature.

I love hair stories and I love makeover stories! I noticed a lot of black women start to go natural when they start to exercise because despite what we grew up thinking, natural hair is easy to maintain. Congrats to her.

It was my experience that it was easIER to maintain natural hair than relaxed hair when living an active lifestyle… No more light cardio or skipping cardio altogether simply because I didn’t want to sweat my edges out, or dealing with sweat, AND two different textures or avoiding swimming because I didnt want to deal with the aftermath… The list could go on 🙂

Yes that’s exactly why I went natural, sweat and a perm do not mix lol

Oh I like this! Nice job on getting your health and body together. It takes a lot of hard work and motivation but if you can stick with it wow it really pays off. I can relate to this story. I also use fitness Dvd to keep the weight off as I find gyms a bit inconvienent.
