10 pound weight loss with some visible results. From 168-158 pounds at 5’6 in about 4-6 weeks. If you’d like you can follow my progress or ask questions at sandradear.tumblr.com I have my current diet and exercise listed there as well.
From 135.5kg/298.7lbs to 106.7kg/235.2lbs in 11 months.
In the first pic I’m not happy. I make fun of myself how bad that dress looks on me. But don’t mistake weight loss with more self esteem. The reason I smile on the last pic is not because I lost the weight. I smile because finally I learned to accept myself. I’m great and I’m working on becoming the best version of “me” (inside & outside). Sounds cheesy but its just the truth.
After being an emotional eater for a long time I finally decided enough was enough. I was 5’11 and 350 pounds at my heaviest. I cut out all the fast food, candy, and soda from my meals and started running everyday after work(6 miles in an hour). About 10 months and 145 pounds later I reached my goal weight of 205. I’m not done yet, I set a new goal of 185 and am currently working on that. I was about to get gastric bypass but I’m glad I didn’t. Hard work and dedication are always worth it.
my name is latoya I’ve lost 70 pounds over the last past 9 months. starting out I would have never thought I would lose this much weight but with a little bit of willpower and a whole lot of praying I’m well on my way to my goal. I lost the weight by portion control light exercise 3 to 4 days a week for 30-45 minutes and drank lots of water, NO SODA! I’m loving my new body and so does my Husband ;-). This may sound cliche but trust me, if I can do it anyone can.
Going through a bit of stagnation so I’m uploading this to keep myself motivated. I am definitely more active now than I was 6 months ago when the first picture was taken, but 80% of what I have achieved is because of my diet. No more processed food, no more crappy simple carbs, and lots of water and green tea.
I’m not perfect, I mess up a lot, and like now I’m stagnating and it’s frustrating. I keep my eye on the goal, I’m supported by my friends, and I’m so much happier now than I’ve ever been with my weight.
It took me two years to lose the weight and I am so happy I did my entire outlook on life has changed. I started running and playing rugby to lose the weight and watched my calorie intake keeping it at about 1,200 the first year. I only ate foods that I had made or had watched be made which cut out all fast food which was one of my biggest issues.
—-> (The middle picture is the “after” weight loss result.) Lost 137 pounds in 2 years, hopefully never to be found again ;-)
Just took my 20lbs difference progress shots yesterday. I”m not done yet but it’s a goal. Here’s my stats: This is 12 weeks difference.
Latest on right:235lbs.
I don’t do a lot of cardio except for Farmers Walks and Deadmill sprints. I squat heavy twice a week and Deadlift on Wednesdays. I stick to the big movements like Squat, Deadlift, Bench, OHP, Dips, Chinups and when I’m in the mood I”ll do curls or tricep extensions. Deadmill sprints are a wonderfull HIIT workout and Farmers Walks are a great overall conditioning workout.
I’ve been on this weight loss/fitness/healthy lifestyle journey for a while. On and off, until 2012 and that’s when I made a true commitment. It’s had it’s ups and downs. I am very motivated these days to change my life and inspire others. I am on a mission, i love talking to other people about fitness, clean eating and what has worked for me. I’ve recently started nutritional cleansing and it has done wonders for my body! I am forever grateful. It has helped me lose a couple stubborn lbs/kgs that I have been trying to release for a long time! Finally starting to feel comfortable in my own skin…there’s no going back from here! follow me for inspiration, motivation or just a friendly chat! Don’t ever give up! and don’t ever let anyone make you feel like your dreams are not valid. they ARE possible. I promise you. I’ve been there. and look at how far I have come. You can do this.
