Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star DeShawn Snow has lost 30 pounds. Her weight loss kicked off after her very public divorce from NBA player Eric Snow.
“I felt everything was out of my control,” Snow, 37, tells UsMagazine.com. “I had no control over anything that was happening in my life and the weight and working out was something I could control.”
Snow credits her close friend and personal trainer, Trey Crump, with keeping her motivated.
“[When] Trey heard [of my divorce], he texted me and was like ‘Meet me at the gym at 6 a.m.’ He didn’t ask me any questions, we just worked out. That was his way of getting me out of bed and then once I started, I just got consistent.”
Snow works out two hours a day, but the key to her weight loss is eating in moderation.
“I supplement with protein shakes and I try to stay away from carbs. Sometimes I’ll have seafood or vegetables. Basically it’s portion size, a maintenance thing.”
In addition to wanting to lose 10 more pounds, she also wants to impart her wisdom on others.
“All of my projects are basically to empower and encourage young women. The hardest thing in life is to believe that things happen for a reason. You can’t be a victim, you have to be a victor — press through it — and know that success is the best revenge.”
