I’m 5’5-the left is @ 184.5 lbs, the right is @ 124 lbs.
This will be the last time I submit my photo!
It’s been nearly two years since I began my health journey and although I’ve seen my fair share of ups and downs, I’ve never been happier.
There are no crazy secrets - eat clean, stay active, and love yourself no matter what your weight is.
So I’m getting ready for my rave and I’m choosing what to wear and I came across these pictures. There is almost a years difference there (left: May 26th 2013 -> right: April 17th 2014) I’m happy because I just started my fitness reboot and I can see my progress in my calves, waist, and face mostly and that makes me so confident and more determined then ever.
First of all, ignore my dumb duck lips, it was a joke. Anyways I’ve lost 31.4 pounds so far. It’s not about starving yourself, or eating less. You can still enjoy the things you like you just have to change up your lifestyle. Healthy eating with little treats now and then is also key. I’m at the gym 5 sometimes 4 days a week, because I love it. Try to incorporate it in your life. ALWAYS EAT BREAKFAST. It’s not even an option. I’ve decided to become a nutritionist, I’m currently going to school for it. If you have any questions feel free to ask me! Do it for yourself, a healthy change can make you feel brand new from the inside, out!
"Nothing ever came from wanting"
Make today the day.
Recovering from BED. I’m in college and working, and getting healthy is still a priority.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that I’ve been this fat. At my heaviest, I just didn’t realize how much I was harming my body. I’m really proud of my progress in one year and getting healthy is the most important decision I’ve made for myself. Even though I’m not totally satisfied yet, I’ve worked on my self-esteem and learned how only hard work can get me where I want to be.
Believe in yourself -xxx-

I’m 17, 5’7 and I lost 65lbs and counting! :)
Running, eating healthy, and weight lifting helped me get where I am today. You can see such a big difference in my legs in this picture. I’m so proud of how far I’ve came even on the worst of days.
You can do it too.
CW: 140 (Maybe lower! I haven’t weighed myself in forever)

Starting with my highest weight of 185lbs in 2009 I lost a few pounds in 3 years by eating less, but not the healthy way.
In 2013 I started to eat clean(er) and go to the gym and enjoy life! I got rid of fat, unhealthy habits and negative people.
Still on my way to becoming confident and entirely happy with who I am.
Keep going and you will achieve great things! :)
I have hips again, this makes me so freaking happy!!
Before: 185-190 lbs.
During: 160 lbs.
Goal: 130 lbs.
I’ve been a little discouraged lately and I have to keep reminding myself that I’m halfway there. I’m down ~30 lbs. from August 2013. I had been athletic in high school but without organized sports to keep me in shape, I let myself get out of control for awhile. I ate terribly whenever I felt depressed, which just made the cycle worse. I used to eat 3 jumbo cookies every night before bed (yikes!). I’d tried “fad” diets and pills but nothing helped. I hated the way I looked and never took any pictures of myself.
In August, when I took the before photos, I had decided to get things back on track. I started slowly weaning myself off sugar and salt and fat, which was HARD. Cutting out soda and desserts was the most difficult. That stuff is truly addicting. I eat almost 100% organic now, and sugary fatty salty food doesn’t taste nearly as good as fruits, nuts, and veggies. In December 2013 I started working out 3 days per week, and biking on the off days. The first week was the hardest, but it got more fun as I got stronger and quicker and got my balance back. Enjoy the process! Take it slow, love and encourage yourself, and don’t let a bad day or week or month ruin your journey.
By the way, that’s my first bikini in 3 years! Woot! :)
