'I Cut Out Processed Foods And Did Sprinting Workouts And Fitness Boot Camps To Lose 85 Lbs.'

My name is Dionna Thompson (@so_damthicknbad), and I am 28 years old. I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and I am a certified personal trainer.

My weight went up and down pretty much all my life, and I remember gaining weight in middle school. In high school, however, I lost a lot of weight and was active playing basketball.

I had issues staying consistent when it came to weight loss, and there were so many days that I did not want to work out or eat better. I have also had asthma all my life, and it got worse as I gained weight and was not taking care of my body.

Fast-forward to when I turned 26: I hit my heaviest weight of 230 pounds.

At that time, in April 2018, I had just gotten out of a toxic and abusive relationship that lasted for six years. I gained so much weight during it because I was depressed and had bad anxiety, so I turned to food.

Before the relationship, I had been active all my life. So I knew when I saw myself in the mirror, I knew in my heart that this 230-pound woman was not me. I needed to make a change. I was determined to reach my goals, I had to stay focused on my goal and the finish line. I had a mission in my life and I was determined to seek it out through this journey.

Here’s what I eat in a day now.

  • Breakfast: Egg whites and spinach with a grapefruit

  • Lunch: Smoothie

  • Snacks: Hummus, nuts, fruit, and veggies

  • Dinner: Chicken, veggies, and a complex carb

  • Desert: Baked goods like cakes and brownies, or ice cream

But I always struggled to lose weight when I didn't have sports to lean on.
