Meet Rashean!

I’ll be sharing with you my experiences losing weight and eating healthy.

I was raised on Southern-style cooking. Growing up I ate fried chicken, homemade biscuits, fried pork chops, fried cabbage, fresh green beans cooked in butter and oil, etc. In the beginning of this year, I joined Weight Watchers and began to monitor the types of food that I ate, the portion sizes, and ingredients.

What I discovered is that, the area where I needed the most improvement is choosing  healthier ingredients preparing meals.

Since joining Weight Watchers®, I have traded in my Crisco for olive oil, my fried cabbage for steamed cabbage, and my fried chicken for baked or grilled chicken. I also workout for at least 30 minutes three to four times a week.

In essence, I have started to make lifestyle changes that I anticipate will have long-term health rewards for myself and my family. To date, I have lost 21 pounds. Although it is an uphill battle, it is not a battle that I am prepared to lose.

Be sure to stay tuned to my blog posts as I share my healthy eating tips and tricks.

  1. Don’t feel guilty! If you lied to an alcoholic friend and said you had no alcohol in your house when there was a nice frosty beer in the fridge, would you be wrong? Keep up the good work and get yourself and your family healthy(whether they like it or not) :). Truly inspiring!
