This Adorable Mother-Daughter Duo Is Going Viral for Their Incredible Weight-Loss Journey
Cheryl and Tessa Shaw, a mother and daughter, respectively, from Mahwah, N.J., have lost more than 74 pounds combined, ABC News reports.The inspiring twosome first vowed to lose weight through a 100-day health challenge back in 2014, and since then, they've become an internet sensation for their teamwork and inspiring videos.
They began by devoting time every day, over the course of 100 days, to make a 10-second video to track their weight loss and nutrition efforts.
It all started a couple of years ago when Tessa, then 17, approached Cheryl, then 50, and said they had to do something about their health habits. "It just spiraled from there," Cheryl said. After working out and eating better for a hundred days, Cheryl lost 42 pounds and Tessa lost 32 pounds—but that wasn't the end.
The two decided to continue their mission by holding each other accountable to exercise and eat healthier after the challenge ended. The family went viral whenStar Trekactor George Takei shared one of their videos on Facebook, which has now been viewed more than 47 million times.
Over the last three years, Cheryl, now 52, brought her weight down to 150 before injuring her knee, and Tessa, now 19, weighed 125 pounds at her lowest. There have been setbacks along the way, but the difficulties haven't deterred these two. "It's a lifetime deal and I'm not getting any younger," said Cheryl.
If you're hoping to make 2019 your healthiest year yet, follow their lead and and pick a partner to work with.
