Take it from someone who experienced a 65-pound permanent weight loss as a broke teenager raised in a broke family in the Englewood Community on Chicago’s South Side. I achieved weight loss by way of a cheap 10-speed bike, 6 small dumbbells, 4 limbs, home cooked meals courtesy of my mama, a little portion control and a whole lot of dedication. That’s it!
