-Started: 300 / Current: 218
-It took me about a year to shed off some of this weight.
-I exercise as much as my schedule allows me to, and I eat as well as I can too. I try not to cut EVERYTHING out, but I eat in moderation, which has kept me from not going insane.

Hi, I’m Giorgia and I’m  italian and I am 20 years old. A couple of months ago I reached a deep depression point that led me to start my weight loss journey . I feel a lot better now, but I have to lose some more weight and i’m posting this picture not only to gain a little bit of motivation back but also to maybe inspire someone :) 
Height: 5’8 (174 cm)
Weight before: 247 lbs (112 kg)
Weight now: 225 lbs (102 kg)
Weight lost: 22 lbs (10 kg)
And I want to lose another 22 lbs
Diet: I eat 3 times a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) sometimes I eat some snack if I’m hungry. I eat healty (vegetables twice a day and one fruit a day) , I avoid fast food, soft drinks, sweets and eat a lot less pasta and read. And I immediately subscribed to a gym, I workout 3 times a week :)
I am happy of my new lifestile cause I see results and I managed to have them without being hungry and sad and eating clean makes me feel a lot lot better too :) People says they see a lot of difference between the before and the after. I don’t see all that difference but I’m starting to notice that chlotes are larger. Let’s keep working guys :)

How about we change that HOPE into a GOAL, hmm? :-)

My first transformation Tuesday! I’m so proud of how far I’ve come.  This is about a 10 pound difference.  Totally I’ve lost about 25 lbs over 5 months (started at the end of April).  I started with just eating healthy and going for walks/jogs, then I began drinking Shakeology in the morning and did the 60 day PiYo challenge.  I’ve still got a ways to go.  my goal is to lose over 40 pounds.

6ft,before 270,after 220, these photos are a year apart. I went to the gym for 2 hours at least 3 times a week and changed my diet, by having egg whites and grapefruit for breakfast along with black coffee. And low carbs.

Decided to share my story and experience in doing weight training/lifting coming from an ectomorphs perspective for those men out there who want to feel great and look great within their bodies. Weight in both before & after:BEFORE (2 pictures on the left): Hovered around 140 lbs AFTER (3 pictures on the rightmost side): ~170 lbsHow long did it take you?It took me roughly 3 months to see quick muscle gains. The picture of my legs is somewhere around 4 months. After 6 or 7 months I was at the peak of my physique, which are the two other photos, and saw myself plateau after that.  Diet and exercise strategy?DIET: For the first 3 months I stressed the importance of meeting my macros. I did 50% carbs, 30% protein, 20% fat. I had a source of protein with every meal, ate clean carbs, and healthy fats.  I had only one cheat day but would make sure I stayed away from foods with a high ratio of fat and carbs (think cakes, and pastries). For the first 3 months, I took in 2700 calories. After that I bumped up to 3000, and found a sweet spot of 3200 calories that made me feel “recovered” after any hard gym session.Only “supplements” I ever took were ON Whey Protein (Vanilla Ice Cream) and the occasional coffee. Steered away from alcoholic drinks.EXCERCISE STRATEGY: I did a 5 day split, that included chest, back, shoulders/abs, arms, legs/abs. I included deadlifts, benchpress, and squats (compound lifts in general). No cardio because I typically did 4 sets of 8 reps that would encourage muscle hypertrophy while still improving functional strength. Additionally, the increase in muscle mass improved my metabolism and my resting BMR was higher than before, so I could eat almost anything I wanted :). Hope this helps some of you out there thinking of looking your best while you’re still young. Discipline and diligence is all it takes, and your body will take care of the rest.

Now: 145lbs
Goal: (it’s flexible depending on how i feel about my body) 125-130lbs
That is my one month celebration pic (okay, okay, maybe one month and five days, BUT STILL)
I’ve been doing walking/jogging 3-5 times a week for at least 30 minutes each go.  As well as sticking to a 1200 calorie a day vegetarian diet. I had days where I went over my limit, but as some other submitter had said, we are all human! :-)  I couldnt do it all without the support of my boyfriend and my mother!

Hey guys! I’ve posted a before and after here before and I’d just like to post another one, although this is still a before and during
sw: 140 lb
cw: 117 lb
gw: 110-115 lb
I’m a varsity volleyball and soccer player, so just having practice 4 days a week for an hour and a half helps a TON
but when we don’t have practice or whatever i hit up GymRa on youtube because they have AMAZING total body workouts i love to challenge myself with
i make my own lunch and take it to school instead of buying food, because its just so much healthier and i hate not knowing whats in my meals
my usual breakfast is a banana with coffee, and then i snack on apple slices w/ peanut butter or a handful of raisins around 9:30 am
for lunch i’ll have a small homemade salad or some curry/tumeric cooked veggies for lunch, with a hard-boiled egg or a nature valley energy bar
then i go off to practice after school and have a special k protein shake (20% protein!!) right after, get home and fill up on carbs with a bowl of orangic veggie pasta drizzled with some EVOO
i almost never eat out, just because i feel so slow and bloated after but once a week i stop by a safeway on my way to school and pick up a donut as a treat :)
i drink about 80 ounces of water a day (i like staying very hydrated)
i love this lifestyle! i know im making my body happy, and seeing these changes in the way i look is amazing. im learning to love my body and every day i wake up knowing im one step closer to my goal :)

2 months with willpower

 submitted:

July 26, 2014 - September 15, 2014

5’5”
255lbs - 224lbs

Hard work and a lchf/keto lifestyle change. I spend 6 days a week in the gym and drink nothing but water and occasionally tea.

I never thought Id even be able to get this far on my own before, but now I am more motivated than ever!

If I can lose over 30 pounds in just under two months with willpower and determination, imagine what you could do if you set your mind to it!

My November to September progress! I’ve lost a total of 87lbs since beginning my journey in October, almost a year has passed and it feels like just yesterday I decided to change my life for the better. It’s possible people, if I did it you can too!!! All done by counting calories and getting off my butt and moving around. I’m prepping for my first 5k in 4 weeks and restarting the 30DS hoping to reach a total loss of 100lbs on the one year anniversary of my weight loss journey, but if I don’t that’s ok I’m happy!!!

Height - 5’8.

During - 185.
Goal weight - 130.
These photos were under 3 months apart.
My diet isn’t anything special, I just cut out most sugars and fattening things, and try to eat a lot cleaner. I also count calories thanks to my “Lose it!” app which is my holy grail and it also helps me keep track of my workouts and how many calories I’m burning. I drink a lot of water, and I try to plan out meals and snacks which is definitely a big help.
My motivation comes from self hate, I can’t handle not being happy with my body anymore. Most days I’m content and if I had to have this body forever, I wouldn’t be crushed, but I’m thankful I don’t have to have this body forever and I can change it and I will.
I mostly just power walk, jog, and run, but I also do strength training and things like squats, donkey kicks, flutter kicks, crunches, etc. Nothing special at all!

I am 2 months  into this journey  and i still have a lot more to go. I always thought there was some hidden secret to losing weight and made things too difficult for myself. Then it just hit me, that i can do this, and i am strong enough to make my goal. I have been exercising  5 days a week (running and weight training) and eating clean. Every meal i have a veggie, protein, and carb. Then i snack throughout  the day. I have only  been drinking water. I am excited to see my end results. I will keep you guys updated if you would like :)
