Countdown to end of Summer: days left!

32 years old.
5’6”
From 235lbs down to 135lbs

"I lost the weight by cutting fried foods and sugar. My guts can’t handle it anyway. I found out, not too long ago, that I have IBS. So, that made it a little easier to select foods with less fat."

-5’7” -About 240lb in the left photo, about 176lb in the right photo. -These photos were taken a year apart at the same convention. I’d stopped actively attempting to lose weight by the second photo and was starting to do more Olympic lifting. -As for strategy and diet; I had a high protein, no sugar (not even fruit for the first 2 months) diet, and my exercise was very HIIT based for the first 6 months. I then got a new trainer who was more inclined to strength and I began Olympic lifting and just general focus on strength. I also play sports; Rugby, and Ball Hockey.
I’m still doing Olympic lifting, but I’ve heavily reintroduced cardio to make another 25lbs push with the help of Shred Matrix - which I’m currently blogging about too.

Name: Meg (Blog: myspectacularstart)
Age: 15
Height: 5‘7
Weight in the first photo: 250 lbs
Weight in the second photo: 225 lbs
Time it took me: 5 months
Dieting & Strategy: Just being active. I started walking, going to the gym more often, ate portion sizes instead over-eating, workout videos (Especially the 30 Day Shred- I feel that was the most helpful.)
I’m not even close to my goals, but I’ve hit a milestone. It’s hard, but so worth it in the end, even if I’m sounding too cliché. Just stay strong. If you need somebody to talk to, you can always message me:)

Height: 5’2”
Before: May 2012, approx. 205 lbs.
Now: Today, July 2014, 156.8 lbs. (In the bathroom at work.)
To get to this point, it’s taken me about two years. 
In June 2012, I joined Weight Watchers with a friend from the office. A combination of a diet overhaul and amping up my activity has allowed me to loose 45 pounds. I’m still in my “during” phase, but I don’t think that’s grounds to not celebrate progress! Looking forward to murdering these last 16.8 pounds.
I often times see before and afters that talk about how unhappy the subjects were in their before. That’s not totally the case with mine. While I was far from thrilled with my body, I was truly happy in that photo. I was in a beautiful city with my two best friends who live in opposite corners of the country. My job was great, I was feeling good. But about two weeks later, my good friend, Jessica, convinced me to start going to meetings with her, and it changed my life. I feel physically better. I feel emotionally better. I feel great.

-Height 6’4”-Weight in both before & after 440 before and 212 after-How long did it take you? I lost the first 200 pounds in 374 days and it took me about 3 months to lose the last 28.-Diet and exercise strategy? I focused on clean eating, whole foods based diet with lean protein and vegetables with fruit and sweet potatoes based on activity levels. 
I weight trained the entire time but I also did some running, swimming and biking and completed a triathlon. I continue to weight train 4-5 days per week and eat as clean as the day I started.
