I’m Jhoanne (pronounced as JO-ANN).
I’m a stay at home wife and mom.
My weight-loss journey began back in 2012, after I had my first child. I’m 5’4 and I had gained over 50lbs, taking me up to 180lbs. I was determined, motivated, so focused and lost the 50lbs, bringing me down to 130lbs. I did everything from clean eating, juicing, smoothie challenges, vegan, and always working out. By working out, I mean running on the treadmill and using the elliptical only. Hey, it was a first step to the right direction! This phase was when I read and learned as much as I can about weight-loss, healthy eating, and some workouts.
Fast forward to 2014, I continued clean eating and working out while pregnant with baby # 2 ! I gained a healthy 5lbs. After, I completely went down-hill from the whole lifestyle. I did still eat healthy, because that was just a habit. However, I wasn’t focused on what I was eating , what I weighed, or anything in between.
Now, at the present time, I recall trying so many different diets : whole30, plant based, raw vegan, paleo, etc. All had gave me, on its own, it’s on high , excitement, and weight loss. None, however, was sustainable for MY lifestyle.
So, I’ve decided to stick to HEALTHY. My healthy consists of:
- portion controlled
- little to no dairy
- meat-less during the day
- working out, regardless if its yoga, running, sports, anything to get my body moving
I’ve decided to keep track of my weight loss and fit journey on Instagram, which you can find HERE . If you’re on a similar path, let’s be friends! The more, the merrier! I’ve also decided to make a website for all of the healthy meals I’ve enjoyed to share.
Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to say hello!
