  • Sophie: Hi, here are the first 3 questions !!!!! Thank you !!!

    Hello my name is Gabriela Porcina and I am 53 years old. I would like to tell you a little bit about my life before losing 110 pounds.

    In 2013, I weighed 220 pounds. I had tried many diets and magical formulas to lose weight.

    I was very worried with the fact that I was turning 50 years old and I was fully aware of the health and hormonal changes taking place. I knew that I needed to change.

    The day I turned 50 I woke up with the firm decision that “Today is the first day of a new me”.

    Then I asked my family not to give me anything for my birthday other than a membership to join the gym. They gave me the best gift of my life: access to regular fitness and a personal coach.

    I started the exact day of my birthday, February 19, 2013 without knowing what the future had  for me. The first thing I started with was learning how to eat and also how to adapt to my new lifestyle.

    I started to transform myself thanks to my personal trainer Clifford Dantier who suggested joining Zumba classes in order to reduce my anxiety. I also joined spinning and kick boxing classes.

    After a year of hard work and dedication to the new me, I lost 110 pounds all by exercising and having a healthy diet. In 2015 I became the Success Story at Steve Nash. That same year I also became a Zumba instructor.

    Today, I am a very dedicated person who loves to motivate and inspire women of all ages to have confidence in themselves. Women in their 50’s can have the body that they want to have all while becoming healthy and increasing their energy.

    I love my career. I have been working as a caregiver for special needs kids for 18 years. I have worked with children since I was very young.

    When I started working with special needs children for the first time, I felt so passionate about being able to help them day by day, being able to reinvent routines with them, and helping to simplify their lives and find success.

    Accommodating their needs is my number one goal. Special needs children have a huge potential to succeed in life and interact with society if you guide them, understand them and if you know how to work with them. I chose this career because

    I like to work with kids, specifically with special needs kids. They are great teachers. Thanks to them I have learned to see life in a different way. I really love my job!

      What I like is the name because I feel connected, love Zumba and I’m a Zumba Instructor.

      To connect and share my passion and also what did help me in my transformation and in my New Life.

      To be active , happy, positive , dance my Latin Music and get together with other people , that’s the reason I love this page,  1ZumbaCircles.

      Also, because I want to inspire other people that struggle with their weight. I know how hard it is but I know it can be done, one step at the time and transformation will happen.  

      Also, I want to reach people in my group age , because is possible to lose weight, to look fit , to be active. We can look good and healthy just we need to push ourselvs be 50 and plus is a bigger motivation to be active !!!

      That was the interview with the awesome Gabriela, the Queen of Weight Loss. If she was able to do it; you can certainly do it yourself!

      Thank you Gab for sharing this fantastic life story with all of us. It has been a pleasure talking to you. You’ve been wonderful member in our group, and we wish you all the best in your life. Certainly, we will have more interviews with you.
