Hi I’m Shana! That’s Shay-nuh. I’m from the South and for some reason, people mispronounce my name all the time. Phonetic spelling seems to do the trick.
I began my weight loss journey in 2010, fell off the wagon, then resumed in February 2012 when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Since beginning my journey, I’ve lost a total of 60 lbs. It’s been slow and steady, with lots of stops and starts but I’m making it happen.
I decided to do the Big Boned Getz Toned! vlog/blog because the Black community, my community needs help. We are dying because a lot of us aren’t aware of proper nutrition and how to sustain a healthy lifestyle to pass on to future generations. I’m scared for Black women especially . A recent study revealed that 4/5 Black women are overweight.
My hope is that I can inspire you with the story of my fitness journey. Through my experiences along this journey, I hope that I can help you tone your diet, body and spirit. So my fellow Big Boned sisters, let’s Get Toned!
Got questions? I’ve got answers, I hope. :) Hit me up!
