Doctor visits can be scary, especially as and when you receive unexpected news.
Massandra was motivated to begin her weight loss journey after a visit to the podiatrist revealed she suffered from plantar fasciitis, which is a condition caused by many things, but in her case, it was because she was overweight.
“The doctor said I would have to have monthly injections in my foot and wear an insert that would hinder me from wearing my heels…I’m a shoe lover. I made the choice then to change my lifestyle.”
Massandra jumpstarted her fitness routine by drinking Slim-Fast and hitting the gym three times a week, which later grew into an everyday habit. After a while, drinking Slim-Fast stopped helping and she was forced to change her eating habits altogether. She also joined an 8-week boot camp to maximize her results.
She’s managed to lose 56 pounds in about a year and a half and says that the journey has been “extremely self-rewarding.”
Congratulations on your weight loss success Massandra! You look amazing!
