Sherri Shepherd celebrated her new weight (20lbs lighter) on IG, and we are drooling all over her new look after her weight loss.
The American actress, author and comedian said she originally planned to lose 15lbs but dropped an extra five without the extra work. Sharing her success with her fans, Sherri wrote that she feels more in control of her health and happier now.
Sherri, we are so happy about your milestone and would love to share your journey. So to everyone struggling with their weight or self-esteem. These are five tips to add to your checklist.
Have a Goal
You should know what you want to achieve. Be precise and clear about how you want to look at the end of the journey. According to Sherri, she wanted to lose 15lbs and mentally prepared herself with this goal in mind. Guess what? She exceeded her target!. Do not just say I want to lose weight. How much weight do want off your body?
Constantly and persistently work towards your goal. No one said it would be easy, but it will be worth it. Sometimes cheat days may be more than a meal or days. Do not be guilt-tripped into starting all over again. Pick yourself up, drink water and go for that new bod!
Change Your Lifestyle
Sherri dance steps in her video show tell you girl was not laying on the couch all day. Get up and get moving, even if it means getting off the bus two or three bus stops away and walking the rest of the journey.
You don’t necessarily need to hit the gym to set your cardio meter running. Take your pet out for a walk, use the stairs instead of the elevator, an evening stroll after supper, a few counts of skipping in the morning or clean up your space. Whatever you do, don’t stop moving.
Build a Relationship with your Food
To all my foodies, I love that you have a connection with your food. But it has to be a healthy, wholesome relationship with food. It is a win-win for everyone.
The American TV personality wrote, “ I’ve shed tears because I relied on sugar & carbs (the bad ones), cookies & candy to get me through but In changing my lifestyle and my relationship to food, I love the way I feel.”
Ultimately Believe in Your Worth
“…Believing in my worth…knowing my son Jeffrey needs his MBomma healthy & whole..” of Sherri Shepherd’s story stuck with me. Most people gain huge amounts of weight when they binge-eat during depressive episodes.
Today, stand in the mirror and say this to yourself. “I am worthy, whole, beautiful and worthy. Then crash that diet!
Sherri Shepheard started battling type 2 diabetes in 2007. In 2018, the 53-year-old decided to start a sugar-free keto diet to improve her health.
