For firstiest I feel like this is photo shopped :/ (it’s not)
For secondity. I get a lot that I look so thin now….. I do NOT feel it most days.
I see my shadow and still the woman on the left.
I see my refection and I’m scared she’s gonna be looking back.
A camera comes out I hide.(unless a goofy pic).
Walk past a mirror and I still see her.
I hold up my new pants and question how I can even fit in them.
But then someone makes a positive comment, the hot guy at the party makes a pass at me. Or my ex comes to my house out of the blue to apologize for everything he did to me and raves how much I’ve changed and how good I look.
Then I start to see glimpses of this woman everyone is seeing. And I stare a little longer. Admire the curves in her body, the hard work that’s been put in because I don’t know how long I’ll see her.
Of course my looks aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.
But I’m making progress slowly.
I don’t leap I have months where I make amazing progress….and the other 8 I’m at a stand still😂 but I haven’t given up and everyone I know see’s that.
So this is me saying you can do it!!
And this is nearly a 2 year difference.
Left= Oct 2012 220+lbs ish?? Maybe
Right = July 26, 2014 186lbs
Also a mommy haha soo don’t think I’m just some 22 year old who just happened to be fat then was like I’m workout all the time. No. I was fat and pregnant at one time. It’s been a struggle but I wouldn’t appreciate it if it was easy.
things said in majority of movies:
- "I TRUSTED YOU!!"
- "she’s not just some girl!"
- "I should have told you this a long time ago."
- "I’m not a little girl anymore!!"
- "but I love him!!"
-“You’re giving up your dream!”
“No dad, I’m giving up YOUR dream.”
"I knew your father. He was a good man."
*girl walks downstairs*
Guy: Wow… you look… great.
"I want all of my lasts to be with you. "
First I want to say a massive well done to all of the people on this blog who have transformed themselves! You have inspired me to post my own weight loss picture, although a lot of the ones here are a lot more remarkable than mine!
STARTING WEIGHT: 144lbs
CURRENT WEIGHT (2014): 121lbs
I decided to start my diet and generally get more healthy and fit in November 2012 after stepping on the scales one day and not realising how much I weighed! I used to eat massive portions and a hella lot of fatty foods (our deep fat fryer was on the verge of a nervous breakdown) so I began a calorie controlled diet as I knew this would be the best method of sizing down those sizeable portions!
I began to see results and in January 2013 I joined the gym, thus began my love of exercise and getting into shape! I focussed mainly on cardio to drop the pounds and fell in love with running outdoors, completing my first 5K race in summer 2013!
Ever since then I have never looked back. I’m now focussing on weight training to try and gain some lean muscle in my arms and abs mainly. I am incorporating a lot more protein into my diet yet still controlling those calories. I regularly do 10K runs (I can do them in under 55 minuets now, yay!) and workout at the gym 3-5 times a week.
Working out and being healthy has become routine for me and I can’t imagine life without exercise. I have cut out a lot of the junk food that once upon a time I thought I’d never be able to live without but of course I still have my treats! (chocolate is my one true love)
Everyone’s pictures here goes to show that anything can be achieved with determination, motivation and willpower! You just have to be willing to work hard and have patience to see results, the rewards will be worth it in the end.
Remember, anything is possible! I’ve just started a new personal blog which focusses on weight loss and fitness inspiration. I’d love to follow blogs of the same nature and meet new healthy and fit buddies! :)
