Transformation of the Day: Ash lost 90 pounds. Her motivation came from having high blood pressure. She knew that if she didn’t change her lifestyle, she could be at risk for stroke or heart attack in the future. She took action by adopting a low-carb lifestyle and working out.
I’ve come a looooooong way, and I remember this girl on the left [before photo]. She was not healthy. Now I’m down 90 pounds through a low-carb diet and exercise. It feels so much better being healthy, physically, mentally, and spiritually!
