The greatest things come from hard work and discipline. When I made the decision to become an army officer of the United States, it changed my life.

Here is my story :

Height: 5”8’

During/After: 150 lbs
Time lapse: 3 months
The freshman 15 is a real thing  and I definitely fell victim to it towards the end of spring semester (thanks alcohol). I definitely look and feel much more than just 10lbs lighter, but I’ve also gained a lot of muscle in my arms, legs, and core so I suppose that would make actual weightless hover for a bit. Still wanna lose 10 more lbs but I’m very happy that I’m at least back to the weight I was in high school!

Hey guys, I’m kelly! I’ve never weighed myself consistently, actually only weighed myself twice during the whole journeyFirst time was maybe 2 months into working out because i wanted a ‘starting weight’ to compare to, and second time was when i first joined a gym 9 months ago. What I’ve done was use the tape and clothes as guide. so my weight is just a rough guide!173cm/5’8Before: 94KG/ 207lbs   Waist: 35”  Hips: 41” During: 64KG/ 141lbs   Waist: 27”  Hips: 38”I started working out in Nov 2012 with Insanity twice, then i tried Turbo Fire, Chalean Extreme, Les Mills combat and mixing them around with hybrid calendars i found online along with blogilates. After that i joined a gym and since I’ve been regularly doing Pump, spin, hiit, circuit training, yoga and whatever tickles my fancy! And diet wise, i started off eating whatever crap i wanted and results were coming in slooooowww. so i started cutting off the sugary stuff, the fast food and now the whole ”eating clean” thing is so instilled in me i don’t even think about it anymore. of course i still have cake and pizza whenever i crave it bad so moderation is definitely key!

Age: 21Height: 5’6”HW: 266 (January 2014)CW: 236 (August 2014)
I make almost every meal home-cooked, and try to just buy myself fresh foods. I don’t really have a diet plan beyond avoiding a lot of processed stuff. I haven’t had fast food besides Subway in almost 2 months! I try to exercise at least four times a week, and a lot of times do it late at night because I work about 70 hours between two jobs and an internship. Now I can jog for 20 minutes without stopping, and I have found that running helps me clear my head, especially after a long day.
I have gone from a size 20 to a size 17/18 in jeans, but I still typically wear L/XL shirts. Regardless of what size or weight I am, I feel so much better every day. I have more energy and confidence. If I can do it, you can do it. We can all do it!!

Height 5ft6
So not confident about posting my weight still but I’ve lost 7 stone (98 pounds) since last October through eating healthily and lots of exercise. I now do something every day of the week from swimming and running to bootcamps and weight training. I’ve just been travelling round Thailand for a month and would never have done that when I was 7 stone heavier, not because I wasn’t confident. But because I couldn’t have physically done it in the heat. I look at old photos and didn’t realize how fat I was. I was in complete denial about it. I learnt to accept myself long long before I started my journey and I have a long way to go still but I will always love my body. Every inch of it. Look what amazing things it can do.

I do not weigh myself anymore. I’ve been struggling with a binge eating disorder for quite some time now and got deep in to thought this afternoon.. You, yes you, have the choice of binging. You are in control. Your mind will lie to you and say eating makes you feel better but once you tune out those voices and truly listen to your body, your spirit- you your physical self ultimately has the decision to overeat. Endure the temporary discomfort or binge.
At the moment, would you rather feel anxious/depressed/stressed or feel anxious/depressed/stressed along with loated/regretful/guilty/ashamed?
 All eating will do is make time go by faster and leave you feeling even worse than you did before deciding to binge.
Think of all day tomorrow. How will a binge right now effect the rest of your day and your entire day tomorrow?
Think of the people currently in your life and think of all the opportunities you are given each day to encounter new people. It is impossible to strengthen relationships and grow close to anyone when feeling so ashamed of yourself. Our personalities were all designed to have light. You do not have the ability to shine that light and grow spiritually when you are at constant battle with yourself and food.
What you feel right now is emotional hunger. Your stomach is not hungry. Your soul is hungry. So no matter how many cookies you eat, no matter how much chocolate, pasta, chips, ice cream you decide to eat, believe it or not, your “stomach” will still feel empty. Physically, you’re going to feel full and bloated, but mentally and soulfully, you are still hungry. The only way to fill that emptiness is with love. Start with yourself. Not until then are you able to fully love other people/receive love from other people, which in time and patience, fills that empty void.
 Time will go by whether you decide to binge or not. It is your choice to count the days, or to make the days count. Good things come to those who wait and genuine happiness comes from loving yourself by honoring your body and spirit, rather than your mind/temporary feelings. 
I’m planning on rereading this any time I feel the urge to over eat. I’m always willing to discuss or answer questions privately http://livelyupyourselff.tumblr.com/ask
