Hello my name is Tamara Chanel and also known as Getting My Life Back Now on Instagram and Facebook. I started my journey in 2011 at 438lbs, I lost over 250lbs without surgery and documented it on Instagram. in 2016 and 2017 I slowly gained 66lbs back. My comfortable weight is around 200lbs but my lowest weight was 188lbs ish. I hope to share my journey with you guys in hopes to inspire others to TAKE THEIR LIVES BACK in ALL aspects of their lives. This is not a weightloss channel but it is a channel that is focused on the MIND BODY AND SPIRIT and I promise to be honest and most of ALL I promise to be MYSELF.

  1. Thank you for sharing. I have been following you for years now and I know how disciplined you are. It let's me know that I always will have to stay in the fight and not to beat myself up. I lost 55. Gained back 40 and am on the road to lose 45. Let's get it!
