One-year anniversary of the before pics on top. I let myself go for awhile but I did a complete overhaul of my eating and fitness over the last year. 190-150lbs. Feel free to ask me questions :)

Whenever I’m having a bad day, I look back through my old pictures and realize how far I’ve come. That left picture was me in May of 2013, 45 pounds heavier, and that picture on the far right, was me yesterday. Sometimes it seems like those daily tasks won’t do anything, but looking back now it definitely does. Work hard. Keep on going. Don’t let anything stop you. I’m proof that those teeny little steps pay off.

Took about 5 months with a low calorie, clean eating, vegetarian diet! And a lot of cardio at the beginning but now I’m incorporating weight training as well.

The picture on the left is from 2012, I was 22 years old and probably at my heaviest weight ever. Binge drinking and eating whatever I wanted throughout college, and hardly ever exercising definitely caught up to me. I was so unhappy with the way I looked but I didn’t even know where to start to get back on track.
In May of 2013, I met my boyfriend right before graduating, I was so shocked he showed any interest in me, as I was so unhealthy and unhappy with myself. He could see my pain and how self conscious I was around him and politely suggested I join him at the gym. He was the exact motivation I needed to kick start my weight loss journey. We began going to the gym January 2014 Monday-Saturday for about an hour a day; I changed my diet and cut out all soda and nearly all junk foods, started eating smaller portions, and just became more aware of what I was putting in my body. 
There were some days I dreaded going to the gym, some days I made up excuses, faked injuries, secretly binge ate junk food, but when I started to personally see my physical results and started having friends and family take notice, that’s when I knew that the harder I work, the more it will pay off.
The picture on the right is from this year (2014), I am 23 years old, my current weight is 158, I’m 5’2 and still working on where I want to be.

Sometimes I feel like I haven’t made a change and just need a friendly reminder. I’ve remained the same weight this past month as I haven’t gone for my walks like the previous months. 
On may 1, 2014, I decided to make a change. Picture on the right was taken August 16, 2014, less 25 lbs. 
Last year was my highest at 227lbs. Currently 190lbs.

I always thought I was 5’4 but it turns out I’m 5’5. Thanks to straightening up and working out, my postures given me an extra inch!
I used to weigh around 203lbs, but ze scale now tells me I’m 141lbs. Every journey is different; I loved hearing of all these different fitness transformations so I went and got myself one. 
It took me just over a year to lose 62 lbs. I did it by calculating my calorie deficit and sticking to it, alongside youtube and dvd workouts.

A lot of skin showing.. I know and I’m sorry about that.
But..
I walked by the mirror and had to do a double take of my body, seriously can’t believe I look like this. I still look in the mirror expecting to see the girl I was a couple of months ago. I got a long way to go but heck I’m proud of myself! (Excuse the messy bed, I literally just woke up)
End of February and today
I’m 5’5” and I don’t pay any mind to the scale.

Hi Guys! This is me :)
My age :17 yo
My height is - 5’5” ft
On the left photo I was like 75+ kg and that is me now on the right photo which my weight is now 57 kg :)
And i started dieting since around August 2013 and i was 16 yo that time :) 
Now i’m in my ideal weight! :) Now i’m planning to tone my body to grow some muscles (But not too much muscles :p)
and now I can’t believe how i came through those hardwork :) and telling to myself that i did a good job :) there were times when i lost some weight and sometimes that i gained weight again but i tell to myself “I should never give up cuz i came through those hardwork, And Must keep moving forward”
 This is how i lost weight.
I cut out all the unhealthy foods like junk food and soda drinks(I stopped drinking soda 4 like a year) and I exercised 4 like 3 or 5 days a week and I started eating healthy foods and I always add more veggies on my plate and some good fats and fruits :) And I drink plenty of water :) 
After I lost some of the weight, I grow more confident, active, brave and mature :) This is what i am now :) and I’m proud of what i accomplished. :)

5’2”, 35 yr old.  160 to 146 over 1.5 years.  I gained 55 pounds with my second child and have been working out 3-5x a week doing bootcamp and some running while trying to eat clean. There are definitely days that I eat poorly, but I always go back to lots of water, protein and veggies.  I have about 15 pounds to go.  I’m currently a size 8 and hope to return to my size 4 clothes!

Today I am celebrating one year since I started 5:2! First photo was taken on vacation in Sept. 2013 just after I started 5:2. My goodness my face has changed! Some fun statistics: 
 Lost 37.5 pounds in the year since starting 5:2 on Aug. 1, 2013 
 Lost 43.6 pounds total since January 2013 when I joined the gym
 Went from size 18/20 to Size 14
My heart rate while doing cardio has gone from a dangerous 199BPM to 160BPM
 Went from BMI of 38.6 to 31.4. I’m only 10 pounds away from being out of the “obese” range! 
 Lost 3.5 inches from waist, 2 inches from hips, and 3 inches from my chest in 5 months 
So happy to have found such a sustainable way to lose weight, one that I can continue into maintenance. This has been a long, hard, SLOW journey for me but I feel confident about it going forward, knowing I have a solid plan in place for the last 39 pounds. 
I’m 5’5 and my current weight is 189.

name: Sarah age: 21height: 5’6 The first picture is around late 2011/early 2012, and the second is just a few days ago in July 2014! At my highest (306) my measurements were 48/40/59, now (194) they are currently at 38/30/45.
My diet strategy has been to stop looking at it as a diet & eat things in moderation - over time, you stop wanting a lot of the ‘bad’ stuff. I mainly focus on protein and low carb, but I don’t really keep track of it as well as I should! I haven’t been doing any sort of structured fitness routine, but now that I’m nearing my goal weight (and it’s a lot easier on my joints to do so), I am going to start incorporating it.

Height: 151 cm
Before: 72 kg
During: 50 kg
A year and a half difference.
I’ve been doing A LOT of cardio in the beginning (dancing, jumping jacks, burpees, high knees, sprint, etc.) but i recently started to lift five times to week and doing cardio 4 times to week. I’ve started to love lifting!
There is no excuses. If you need it you have to do it. I stopped dreaming about being healthy and i started making true that dream. And then i realised that i became a better me. I’m so proud. It doesn’t matter if nobody believes in you or make fun of you, you have to believe in yourself.

Weight in both before & after:I started at 190lbs, my current weight is 165lbs
(I would like to lose another 25lbs-30lbs)How long did it take you?I started running and eating better around the middle of may! If I had to guess 11 weeks.
Diet and exercise strategy? I run everyday, sometimes twice and at least a mile each time I run. I count my calories and try to stay under a certain budget and I have cut out pop and fast food. I eat a lot of fish, at least 3 times a week. I know the weeks that I eat more fish I have lost more weight.

This took me about 2 years. I hate dieting, so I taught myself how to eat properly. I love being free to choose my meals, by example, if I ate something like pizza for lunch (I don’t do it too often though), for dinner I pick steamed vegetables or a smoothie made of my favorite fruits, etc.As I began to loose weight I started going to the gym but I got bored very easily so I tried working out at home, but I wasn’t very constant to be honest, so I started taking ballet and contemporary dance lessons, which have helped me to tone.
