September progress - sitting down.  I like to do sitting photos as well because I think sitting is the worst case scenario in terms of unflattering positions, and if you can look good sitting down, you’ve pretty much got it made.  When you sit, everything spreads out like holy shit.  But now, for me, it spreads out a lot less.  Getting there.

—- Agree. Really like this idea: everyone should do sitting before and afters! It’s so hard to hide things when you have to sit. Congrats on your progress -looking good!! :-)

I know this is not a typical transformation. It is my transformation from anorexic to a stronger version of me. This is 8 month of weight lifting with a little cardio. I now want to add 5-8 pounds of muscle and to get leaner! I am so much happier with my body now than I’ve ever did before.
About 8 months ago, I realize how much I was harming my body and I weak I had become. Basically, I was tired of being tired. I started to read about ED recovery and how to get stronger (because I had lost most part of my muscles since my calories intakes were so low). Then I found fitness accounts on tumblr and instagram and I was so amaze by all these beauties! I decided that I needed to change and take back my health.
I am now training 5-6x per week, I eat A LOT (I upgraded my calories by +/- 1000), I have a personal trainer and I feel confident and strong. I’ve gained 20 lbs and I still want to add muscles to my frame! I really want to be fitter but I have accepted EVERY SINGLE flaws that I have and I am just really pushing myself the healthiest way to achieve my goals. I have discovered my passion and I now want to help others to take care of their health and to achieve their goals. I am planning to take classes to become a personal trainer.
I believe fitness and health don’t have the same definition for everyone and you first have to respect your body’s limits in order to be in healthy mentally too. I also believe in indulgence and moderation. Don’t beat yourself for eating a piece of cake. Eat a piece of cake if you want to, enjoy every single bite of it! Just keep in mind that moderation is the key.
In conclusion, you first have to accept and love your body in order to achieve your goals. Don’t be afraid to talk to someone about your problems.

"There are two choices really. You can either surrender to the pressures of life and the struggles of this particular battle, or you continue the fight and do so with even more vengence and determination to reach your goals then you did before. I choose the fight because I know what it will get me."

—-So true! :-) Continue the fight in the face of struggles.

I took me almost 3 years to feel kinda feminine and comfy in a dress. Getting there ;) 
My prom was may 2011 and I was at my highest weight, around 117kgs, and now i’m around 83kgs. height is 173cm 
I started my weight loss journey January 2012, but I had a lot of “breaks” and set backs and months filled with demotivation. Most of my weight came off i the first months. All I did is: eat healthy and enough, workout at home, in nature or at the gym, staying motivated and optimistic. I still have a long way to go, although, I don’t have a goal weight, nor a goal body, I do want to work more on shaping up my body and becoming stronger. Recently started lifting weights, and I’m in love with the results. :) 
All of you keep me motivated! Stay strong, stay awesome xxx
—-BeforeANDafterWeightLoss- You’ve always looked feminine in a dress. Fyi: 34kg = 76 pounds.

Hey! 
I am 5’5 and so far have lost 14kg over the course of about a year. I used to (and still do sometimes) struggle with an obsessive relationship with food, however by incorporating a healthy lifestyle, I am learning to overcome that. I went from 68kg down to 54kg, 
My goal is to get to 50kg by September.

—-Beforeandafterweightloss: Nice work! This is a 31 pound weight loss. You don’t need to lose anymore weight -you already look smashing! Just focus on weight lifting IF you want to improve the tone of your muscles. For your height, 50kg is too low by any standard -trust me please.

The last few weeks I’ve been feeling really down on myself because I haven’t had the time to exercise and my eating has been on and off. In need of a reminder on how far I’ve come.

It’s a long and slow process. You can have bad days, weeks or even months but consistency is key!

How can you feel discouraged?? Just look at that bod!!! :-O 

real-lifewonderwoman:

Before & during. I’ve lost 80 pounds so far and I feel like a completely different person! I have my first 5k this week, something the person on the left could only dream of doing!

An 80 pound weight loss is quite an achievement, congrats!

MahTrainingBlog.tumblr.com #ShamelessPlugGonna see how detailed I can go before losing steam, here we go!Height: 181cm ( 5”11, I think? )Weight before: 77 kg, 35% body fatWeight After: 88kg, ~12-14% body fat.Time taken:Bit of a long story there. Took around 6-7 months to get from chubby to skinny-fat, after which I hovered around 20% body fat for a while, (see second picture). Wasn’t exercising, lost the first 15% by diet alone (low carb, low protein, low fat). After a while of yo-yoing, I just made the decision to really commit myself. Started eating more every day; protein, veggies, kept carbs out of the equation because it seemed that I would very quickly put-on weight whenever they were involved, and took 4 months to get an overall toned appearance - that’d be picture 4, I was more-or-less at 78kg, averaged at 16% body fat. Then came my Great Bulk, a period of half a year where I put on muscle and fat with the intent of getting more mass into myself. (See: swolebro) And a few more months of maintenance has led me to the final pic, reasonably toned, but still very much a work in progress. :)Diet and Exercise Strat:Diet:-Learned my macros (amounts of protein/fat/carb I should intake every day to achieve a leaner look), and found them to be optimally; High protein, medium fat, low carb. -Eating Smart: learned this the hard way during the skinny-fat period. Starving yourself isn’t the way to go it just sends your body into a metabolic adaptation, making it greedy and storing whatever it can as fat. Eat well and you’ll benefit from it.Exercise:(Getting a bit sleepy, probably a bad idea to do this at 3AM.)-HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training, also known as HIIT was a great way to shed the earlier layers of fat. Get your heart racing, work-up a sweat for a couple hours a day. It’s fun and good for you! Running, jumprope, jazzercise, nothing is out of bounds. -Weight training: girls, guys, whomever is actually insane enough to read this through; lifting weights isn’t going to turn you into a hulking behemoth. Find the sweet-spot of exhaustion on the 15th rep. Then do that. A lot. Slowly but surely, you’re going to notice it gets lighter. But lest we not forget: things don’t get easier, we just get better.-Sleep: Could go into the science of HGH, won’t. Sleep a lot, when you can. (Like I’m about to do! :D )-Goals: Don’t set unrealistic goals for yourself. A general thought is so much more powerful than you might think so long as you stick to it. "I am going to train until I can fill out a shirt or at least look damn good when that shirt isn’t on." was my personal one. Find that mantra and repeat it to yourself ad nauseum. Then make it true.Okay, so, I’m starting to nod off. Hope any of this helps! Come follow me on my workout blog above, ask questions, send me messages, anything!

Gonna see how detailed I can go before losing steam, here we go!

Height: 181cm ( 5”11, I think? )

Weight before: 77 kg, 35% body fat
Weight After: 88kg, ~12-14% body fat.
