When inspiration goes viral

Yesterday I shared a picture on Facebook. Very spur of the moment and I didn't think anything of when I did it. I always post on Instagram so I figured I'd share something exclusively to Facebook. What I didn't realize was that the random unmarked photo was going to go viral!
 
 
Holy cow! Over 1.5 million people saw that picture. SAW MY STOMACH for that matter.... Ahhhh! It's one thing for my regular peeps to see it, I mean, we're like family now lol, but for nearly 2 million people I don't "know" to see it was mind blowing! For all of my new peeps that don't know my story, I know it may seem a little questionable seeing someone with such a large midsection and then right next to it, the same person with a smaller midsection, but that's really me then and now. Let's get acquainted, shall we?
 
I'm Lakeitha. I'm a 32 year old wife and mother to three boys. I live in Georgia. I started my weight loss journey back in Seotember 2013 weighing 280lbs. I was at a very low point in my life at the time and I decided to do something for myself. I told myself to dedicate one whole year to getting healthy while setting a goal to hopefully lose 100lbs in the process. I lost those 100lbs one week shy of a year! I (honest to goodness) changed the way I ate which was lean meats, veggies, fruit, and whole grains. I only drink water and I walked for 1 hour a day, 5 days a week. After my first 6 months, I had lost 54lbs. That's when I decided to switch to low carb. I eat meat and veggies along with a few berries here and there (though I plan to eat more fruit soon!). I still only drink water. I love cardio, but have also added a few other various workouts to my regimen. It's been 1 1/2 years since I started. I'm now 165lbs.
 
To answer a few questions:
no, I didn't have surgery at all.
No, I didn't use any waist trainers (they stole my pics).
Yes, it is possible for you to do it.
Yes, that's all I did. Changed the way I ate, drink water, and move more.
 
I wrote a 30 page eBook that explains everything from my journey. It gives you a grocery list (low carb and low fat), 2 different types on menus, answers to all of my frequently asked question, a list of exercises I do, and more! You can find that here  or by clicking the weight loss tab at the top of my blog (please save it before opening it). If you're not interested in the ebook, you can see my journey in its entirety on Instagram (@lakeitha_duncan).
 
 
I hope that helped you to get to know a little more about me. I'm really no different than you. I'm a girl that was ready to CHANGE so I did.
 
Thank you for reaching out. Stay inspired,
Lakeitha

Action Fuel Pro Review has been nearing all the time of late thus obviously, being the test sort, I chose to really give it a shot. One thing I saw is that they assert that with Action Fuel Pro Review will give you comes about notwithstanding the amount you workout. Something I am not enthusiastic about accepting but rather in the event that its actual it could truly be the supplement for me. All things considered, we should examine how it lives up to expectations and how it can offer you those amazing results.

Good morning! I tried to purchase your ebook, but it is saying there is malicious content on the page, so it isn't allowing me to go to the page. My anti-virus is picking up something on the page. Is there another way to access your e-book. Thanks for sharing your story! - Ebony
