Hi!  My tumblr is daniellepatricia1989
Even though tumblr has been a huge infuence on my journey, I only have 11 followers so I would love a few more! .
SW: 227 
CW 164

My weight in the before pictures above is around 195, as I was too embarrassed to take pics before that. 

My name is Danielle and I am 6”0 and currently weigh 164lbs. These picture were taken about 8 months apart. I would call this photo in progress because I hope to build some more muscle and drop about ten more lbs. 

My weight loss story:
I was always athletic as a kid and as a teenager. I figure skated, played soccer, played rugby and ran track in high school, so I never had to be careful about my eating habits. I ate whatever, whenever and stayed fit. This changed when I went to university. I still played sports in the summer but for the majority of the year I was sedentary. I spent my time studying and working my butt off during the week and partying every weekend. This quickly led me to go from 150lbs and a size 6, to over 200lbs and a size 14. I tried all kinds of starvation diets, cleanses, fasting, etc. I’m ashamed to say that I even went through a period of time when I made myself sick after every meal. All that got me was terrible skin, no energy and a body that was a few lbs lighter but all flab. I didn’t like my new body, but I didn’t think my weight was all that important that I should risk my health for it either. I had great friends, and a loving boyfriend and family.

I decided that my weight wasn’t such a big deal and figured maybe I would just always be big. I finally woke up to my weight being a problem when I had the opportunity to move abroad as a teacher. I wanted to go hiking, swimming,surfing and walk around exploring for hours, but my weight held me back. I was out of breath all the time and I just felt like crap. Also, around the time that I left my country for Korea, my mom was told that if she didn’t drop at least 50lbs, she would be at a huge risk of developing liver cancer. I was scared for her, and also upset that at such a young age I had let my body get out of control. She has done an amazing job dropping 70+lbs and she motivated me to get started. I decided to take my health seriously and I began exercising about 3 times a week. Some days I would just walk for hours. Sometimes I tried to run, which was super frustrating because my body couldn’t live up to my expectations at the time.

Then my boyfriend proposed and my sister got engaged around the same time. This is such an exciting time for us, and I knew I wanted to look my best. So I started running 4-5 days per week and doing blogilates a 2-3 times a week. I hated this new routine for the first 2 weeks, but then I started realizing how much better I felt. I had the energy to do things I couldn’t before. I felt that it improved all aspects of my life. I am a better teacher when I run in the morning. I have more patience, I think faster. I just live my life more fully. I have lost about 65lbs and I feel fantastic. 

 Food: 
I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 years now, but I was really unhealthy. I overloaded on carbs and under ate veggies and protein. I decided to just eat really clean. Now I still eat carbs, but make sure it’s whole wheat. Don’t deprive yourself though! I still eat the pizza I love and drink strawberry daiquiris, but 90 percent of the time, I consume a healthy diet. 

I think the most important thing to remember is that everyone screws up. I’ve had days where I binged like crazy and even a few weeks when I put fitness and health on the back burner. But I always got back on the horse, and when I did, it was with more determination than ever. Just keep going and trust in the process. You will be amazed at what your body can accomplish. 

Just keep swimming people! 
Peace and love.

Been on this journey for 5 years and today I walk into a store, bought a bikini and planned to go to the beach with my friends. It’s been a crazy 5 years, full of ups and down but I’m so proud of myself today for never backing down even when I thought it was hopeless. Keep going May 19.2014

I’ve never posted a progress picture before, but today I was feeling pretty proud of myself. These photos were taken a month apart. All I’ve been doing is eating smaller portions, ab workouts, and walking a lot. I have more to go but I’m proud so far!  Left - 185 Right- 170

Still have a lot of work to do, but recently I haven’t been feeling as motivated so I thought posting my first progression photo may help! 
Its been a total of almost 5 months of working out 5 days a week, 3 meals/ 3 snacks a day, and eating as healthy as possible. Something I always say to myself when I feel down about my appearance/progress is “Slow and steady wins the race”

5’8”
Starting Weight 176lbs
Weight Currently 153lbs (: 

I’d like to reach a steady weight of 135! Wish me luck! If you’d like to follow my progress and motivational blog, i’d be thrilled with your support and company.  http://its-a-slow-process.tumblr.com

This has been the hardest, brutal yet happiest journey I’ve ever experienced, and currently still experiencing it.
I am honestly proud of my self for reaching this far in my weight-loss Journey. It would be an untruth if I was to say that I was oblivious to the impact of my troubles along the way. Not only having people at school discriminating me for embarking on this journey in the first place, but also mourning over the death of one of my family member’s. Now I had to give my self a break, but as soon as I felt better, I put my spikes on, and kept running. Running for the better of my health. Running for my future. Running for Me. I soon realised, that you gotta keep going no matter what happens to you, because you DO NOT and I mean DO NOT want to live with the guilt of putting all the weight back on, and diminishing all that hard work. My advice to everyone who is on their weight-loss journey now, or if you’re about to embark on one, is “We stop at nothing.” Don’t ever give up. I know it’s easier said than done, but trust me, it is worth every sweat and tear.

Hi! I’m Sara and I’ve battled with my weight my entire life. This is an older before and after picture once I lost 30 pounds. I’m not back where I started originally, but I have gained some back. I’m using this picture to help motivate myself to get back to eating healthy and exercising regularly. 
Height: 5’4
Weight:
Before: 260
After: 230
It took about 5 months of working out with a personal trainer for 1 to 2 hours a day  4 times  a week, along with a strict diet of 1200 (or less) calories of mostly lean meats and veggies.
FOR THE RECORD I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS. I was honestly looking for a quick fix, eating less than I should, and over doing it at the gym. 
However, as someone who has always been 30 to 80 pounds overweight, and never able to lose 30 pounds consecutively before, this picture is still encouraging to know that it IS POSSIBLE. My body can change when I commit myself to it. I just know now to commit to healthy eating, and regular exercise, not quick fix diets and torturing myself at the gym. It’s true, it takes longer when you do it the “right way” but it also lasts, and becomes a true, lifestyle change. :)
I look forward to connecting with others and hearing about your stories! Message me anytime!

200 -> 160
6 months
3 Meal / 3 Snacks per day ( High Protein / Low Carb ) 
Hit training 5-6 times per week
I didn’t realize how bad i let myself go until i saw this picture of myself. I work 60-70 hour work weeks so I didn’t have much time to go to the gym. I was also extremely addicted to soda so the hardest part was giving it up. Now i can barely stand the stuff, I drink about 120 ounces a water per day. My transformation was done completely at home with short but intense HIT training. If I can do it, YOU can do it!
