If you've ever tried to lose weight, you know the struggle and many obstacles hidden along the wait. One of the most effective things that keep us going are amazing transformations by other people, who didn't give up and reached their goal. We want to celebrate one of such amazing people and live through her stunning journey.

"Enough is enough"

We turn our attention to Nancy, an absolutely beautiful girl who lost over 100 pounds. She shared her story, which inspires us to keep going and believe that such transformation is possible for anyone.

Nancy's journey began with a terrible tragedy: the passing of her father. Before dying, he urged Nancy to lose the pounds and get her life back from her overwhelming weight. In her own words:

It took 11 months after his death for me to finally start fighting for my life again. I’ve lost my way to many times to count in my “dieting years”, that I eventually said enough is enough! I have change the way I’m living my life before it’s to late.

In October 2015, Nancy found Quick Weightless Center, where she learnt portion control and started practicing clean eating. In just a year, she was 110 pounds lighter and feeling better than ever.

#fbf Sometimes we need a little reminder of how far we have come! We are our own worst critic! Success is not measured in how fast or slow it takes. For me it’s when I can look in the mirror and say “dammm girl you look like a snack!” Lol doesn’t happen too often but as long as I don’t give up! I’m going to keep working on myself without pressure. I'm a work in progress... 2015..2016..2017.. coming soon 2018...REMINDER Weight-loss does not happened over night .. remember that the next time you decide to give up on yourself! 👻:FancyNancy819 #healthychoices #fitgirl #bodygoals #transformation #igdaily #inspiration #model #fit #fitness #fitspiration #fitnessaddict #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlifting #exercise #healthyeating #transformationtuesday #live #love #gym #gymmotivation #blackgirlmagic #fatloss #fattofit #nevergiveup #squats #motivation #healthy @realmagicsurgeon @blackwomenlosingweight @blackwomendoworkout @people @thedoctorstv
