Here’s my progress so far. I’ve come a long way but I still have a ways to go. Im so happy and proud of myself (not trying to sound cocky) but I’m very pleased with how I look and feel. It’s been a roller coaster and did take some hard work and time but it was so worth it. I’m changing my lifestyle not only to better myself but for my daughter as well :)
My name is Katherine! I am 5’1. I started my journey this year in December; weighing at 222 lbs! I am now 137 lbs and could not feel any better or be more proud of myself for doing this the right way and for no one other than myself. It can be hard at times being a full time college student, full time employee, and a full time fitness fanatic but I would’t change a thing! It takes a whole life style change. I do not diet. I have healthy eating habits. If you want to see permanent results you have to make a permanent change! The girl that once cried about running the mile in gym class is now running multiple miles a day and majoring and personal health and wellness. Never say you can’t.I want to help people that struggle with the on going battle of them against themselves.
I’m 21 and has been overweight for as long as I could remember. I’m 5.5 feet and weigh 245.9 lbs. After 11 months, I am now 171.9 lbs. Yeap! That’s a difference of 74 lbs! I cut my intake of food to half and try to eat as healthy as I could. Though there would be days where I would eat some fried food. :-p I also swore of rice and started to play Dance Central 2 and Sports Kinect 1 & 2 on my Kinect Xbox360 atleast three times a week! Now, I can fit into all my old clothes again and have gained back some much needed confidence too! If I can do it, you can too! (And this is coming from probably the most laziest person you will ever meet!)
hi, this is my body, and i’m 15 years old with a height of 5’6. I’ve dealt with self body issues since i was about 7 years old and have always tried to lose weight. the first picture i weighed about 197 pounds and right now I don’t really use scales anymore but last time i checked I was 186. I’ve struggled a lot to lose weight. The first picture was in January of 2013 and the second is October of 2013, it’s been nearly a year and I haven’t done much. The first 10 pounds came off easy now it’s as if no matter what I do I can’t lose anymore weight and I’m really struggling… Although people have had way better results, I’m still proud of myself.. I can at least see how my stretch marks have faded and I dropped a size in clothes.. The really slow weight loss is really discouraging for me but I’m not going to give up… I still have a lot more to go and hopefully I can come back in a few more months with my goal weight down :)
I am feeling so good! I am fitter, healthier and, or course, slimmer.
I have lost 21 kgs.
I’ve gone from wearing clothes size 18-22 to wearing 14-16.
I eat so much healthier now. I eat fruit (something I hardly ever did before), lots of veg, my portions are smaller, I drink heaps of water, I workout for at least 30 minutes 5 times a week; all the things you’re meant to do to be healthy.
I am really proud of the changes I have made in my life.
The picture to the left is high-school graduation in 2010, at 6’0 and 260lbs. The picture of me to the right is senior year of college 2013, same height at 190lbs.
I have always struggled with my weight since I was a young. With diabetes running through the bloodlines of my family, I had to make a decision to change for the better. Over these few years, I have stay persistent and fought to get healthy. I am not perfect I slipped and fell hundreds of times, but what always was key was having the dedication to stand up and work for your goals. Getting into the fitness lifestyle I always wished someone would just take me under his or her wing and help me, but that did not happen. However, I did have many supports, but I am here to try to inspire anyone I can truly help. My goal is to continue getting better everyday and hopefully compete in men’s physique professionally. Please follow me on my journey on Instagram, the more support I have the more I can help others as well! THANK YOU! http://instagram.com/chillfitness
16 lbs down and counting! Started at 213 and now down to 197. The first picture was taken the last day of April just as I begin doing circuit training. Over the last few months I’ve also made a very conscious effort to improve my eating habits. Though I still cheat more often that I should, my diet has greatly improved and something I continue to work on. My eventual goal is get down to the185-188 range.
My before and after. About a 30 pound difference. The one on the right is from about a month ago. I usually stay around 155 lbs and I’m 5’6”. I lost the weight by eating cleaner, doing crossfit, and using HerbaLife products.
Hello everyone! My thighs have always been the spot that I;v had the hardest time accepting. It seemed that no matter what I did, they stayed the same size. Talk about discouraging! After years and years of yo yo dieting, I finally ditched th diet, and started eating for nutrition- to fuel working out. I love to run, dance ballet and do hot yoga. After 7 months of balancing college, work, family, friends and this new healthy lifestyle of mine, I can proudly say that my thighs are no longer an issue. :)
I’ve shifted my way of living, my way of thinking about myself, the planet and all of the people and things in it. I’ve found my inner peace with my lifestyle, and I;ve never been happier or healthier!
This is my older brother, his name is Gary. He went from weighting 315 pounds in the before picture, to weighing 195 pounds in the after picture over the course of about 2 years. In order to lose this weight, he didn’t actually exercise all that much. Instead he simply cut bad foods out of his diet. Below is a list of foods that he stopped eating in order to lose the weight. I love you so much, Gary, and keep up the great work!
Brian dropped 32 pounds and has more muscles now, at 42, than in all his life.
Brian’s road to success. “I created competition wherever I went,” he says. “I’d go into the gym and see a guy busting his ass and he’d automatically become the guy I had to outwork.”
Even when ordering meals at a restaurant, Brian made sure he was the one ordering the healthiest meal at his table. He didn’t do this in order to be better than other people, but to make the process of changing habits into a game that was fun, challenging, and motivating.
Playing these games, Brian, age 42, dropped 32 pounds and added more muscle than he ever had.
