2018 marked a dark year for Tenake Coard. Tragically, she lost one of her brothers to suicide. In the same year, she relocated from her home in South Carolina to Los Angeles. The separation from her family rushed in a wave of loneliness, and the feeling of isolation brought her to a low mental state, causing her to gain weight.
A few years later, Coard was diagnosed with a severe case of COVID-19*** and double pneumonia, which sent her to the hospital to fight for her life. She spent eight days in the hospital, struggling to breathe, before she was transferred to the ICU for intubation. Though she felt ready to give up all hope, Coard says that she experienced a miracle when her inner voice spoke through her pain: “You still have work to do.”
Amid her “long and intense” road to recovery, Coard struggled to walk and felt mentally drained. She lacked the time and physical capabilities to care for herself. When she heard about The 15 Day Challenge at TLC’s 2022 Gravity event, she decided to commit to the journey not only to lose weight before her upcoming bariatric surgery but also to focus on her health and recovery.
“The 15 Day Challenge lit a fire in me,” she said. “Before the challenge, I was mainly depressed, sluggish, and sedentary. Committing to the challenge causes me to wake up with a goal in mind, move my behind, take my products, and feel good about my day!” Throughout her challenge, Coard shed over five pounds and lost eleven inches around her waist! After committing to morning workouts and taking sneakers to work to walk during breaks, she feels less pressure on her knees and back, enabling her to get moving!
In addition to workouts and an increased daily step count, Coard consumed the products in The 15 Day Challenge Kit and implemented healthier food choices into her diet. With the help of The 15 Day Challenge eGuide, she planned nutritious meals instead of grabbing fast food, ate more fruits and vegetables, and stopped snacking late in the evening.
Seeing her progress after completing the challenge left Coard feeling more confident. She saw her accomplishments not only as a victory but a miracle. “The biggest competition was against myself. I felt like I was stuck,” she said. “Each day I complete my challenge, I feel like a winner because I competed with myself and won.”
