“I had literally already planned my own funeral, had sat down with pen and paper, written instructions as to how the service would go. I was suffering with stroke level high blood pressure and aching joints. I had diabetes and my feet were numb in the mornings. I couldn’t go on. I was working a job that kept me standing all day, and that was increasingly hard to do. My father had died suddenly and I found myself in the throes of grief, wrestling with my own mortality. There seemed to be no way out of my depression.”

Those are the words of Tamera from her website after losing more than 250 pounds naturally.

Tamara has been quietly building a weight loss and motivational empire on social media just through her own testimony. With a starting weight at 438 pounds, Tamara has literally been shedding pounds every week taking her down to 192 pounds currently.

She is always motivating the thousands of followers she has on Instagram and doesn’t let any of them give up on their goal to live healthy. She says that taking control of her health and weight have truly given her her life back and she wants other to do the same.
