current weight: weighed in about two weeks ago at 175 pounds
I started my journey on Feb 20th, 2014. It is now April 15th, 2014.
I can honestly say I am addicted to the gym, hahaha. I am there at least 6 hours a week. I wish I had more time to go but I am a full time college student and a full time employee. Nutrition is a must for weight loss when you don’t have much time, fitness is for fun.
I have no “diet” strategy, I have created a lifestyle for myself. You can follow me on Instagram (@fitgirlcreations) for quick, simple and delicious low-calorie recipes on-the-go that I have created. There is nothing I want more than to inspire and share my creations with everyone in the same boat as I am so please pass along this information :)
I am 5’10 1/2, 20 years old On the left I am 200.8 lbs (April 22 2013) on the right I am 170 lbs. (April 2014) Been a long, hard working year. Still not done. This picture really shows how far I’ve come (at least for myself) I look like an umpa lumpa on the left and just I wish I could show you a before and during in real life! haha it’s much more obvious. My exercise is mainly jogging (3.5-4 miles) 5/6 times a week. Been doing 200 squats a day for the past 2 1/2 weeks so I’ll keep you posted on those results soon! I really hate working out indoors aka why I don’t like the gym aka why I jog outside. Buuuuut when it’s too dark for me to jog bc of school all day, I’ll do the treadmill at the gym, 30 minutes 7.5 speed for 15 min and then 8/9 speed alternating for 15 min. My meals consist of vegetables and fruits since I’m vegetarian and gluten free (for the past 3 months) So I make a lot of vegetable based meals. Veggie patties!!!So good *drool* Lots and lots of water and occasionally some diet coke (Omg yeah, I said it!)

P.S. A half naked version of her before and after weight loss photo coming soon.
The image of me on the right was near the peak of my weight-gain; at 6’5” I was pushing 460lbs. In the one on the left I stand at still at six five with my weight now cut in half to 230lbs.
I spent 4 years getting into shape. There are no fast methods, there are no tricks, there are no easy methods; You have to believe in yourself. Find your own power to change then commit to it.
At 39 years of age I feel better than I have in my entire adult life and my stamina and physical condition still surprise me; I’m currently laying plans to summit Mt Adams in Washington state this July. A mountain trail holds more joy and pleasure for me then a pizza ever did.
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.
