200lbs+ before vs. 137lbs during
I can’t believe that was me. But it was, and through small changes, Christmas 2010 and 2011 saw me slightly smaller, until I decided to take proper control of my health in June 2011, when I joined a gym and started eating clean. In June 2011, I weighed 189lbs, and now (January 2013) I weigh 137lbs; I can run 40mins+ without stopping, I’m strong, I have energy, I’m addicted to yoga and I love being healthy.

Jan ‘09-220lbs current Jan ‘13-175lbs
It started with hating the way I looked in clothes and pictures, my doctor telling me I was at risk for diabetes, and my boyfriend telling me I was fat (we are no longer together obviously). I started martial arts and kickboxing and eventually started lifting weights and running.
I originally lost 55lbs in about 2 years, then gained 20 back, and have lost 10. Its a constant battle, but Keep fighting!
Hello! My names Vicky I’m 26, 5ft 6 I started my journey 2 years ago at 262lb although I have been closer to 300lbs at stages in my life. I currently weight about 216lbs although I don’t weigh myself often because I have made an effort to build a huge amount of muscle so I don’t follow the scales much. I’m a Pesco vegetarian and an avid long distance runner and I base my entire life around working to improve myself by eating well and exercising. I love to meet people on the same journey as myself and always welcome new friends. Thanks!
I am 20 y.o. girl from Lithuania. My weight loss story is very long and not over yes, because I still weight a bit too much for my height. But I am working on that little by little, to get best results and be healthy :)
So, all my life I have been “round kid” and I didin’t really do anything about that. I have been bullied at school, became sad, sensitive and very impulsive. At age of 16 and height of 160 cm I weighted about 86 kg. Then even my doctor adviced some diet tips, but I didin’t really do anything at all about it.
About a year after I became more aware about both, how I look and how I feel and decided to have some changes in that. But I never dieted! So, I started working out and drinking a lot of water, but never pushed myself to hard. During one summer I lost more than 15 kilograms by riding a bike everyday, going to gym 2 times a week, cutting out meals after 6 pm and…water for sure. That was only things I did and weight was going down. So, I went on with my goals and in one year, 26 kg. were lost.
After coming back to school, everyone were shocked - girls were complimenting me and bullies silented…(not all though, I expierenced a lot bullying after that too,since I left a bit chubby anyways). But I felt better about myself. And I feel better now, because I showed everyone (and myself) that I can reach my goals if I want.
When I graduated school and started going to university, even my inner character changed, and I became more open minded. Now, I almost don’t get any harsh comments, but since I gained back 4 kilograms and still have some unneeded fat on my belly, back and shoulders, I decided to go on.
But even now, I AM happy. I attend dance classes, I go out a lot, I can go shopping and try on any clothes, I can smile brightly to show all those people who bullied me, that I am way better than them.
That’s my story which haven’t ended yet. But I felt like sharing this, because I accidently found some of my old photos and thought “it’s time”.
P.S. I love sweets, and even during the most active weight-loss time, I never gave up on this. Ice cream or chocolate is my everyday “sin”.

I wish to weight about 55 kilos, but I don’t hurry at all, because I feel healthy enough.

30 pounds away from my goal weight. This has been over the course of 2 years. Almost 100 pounds lighter! I just ate way smaller portions and cut out soda.
I’m finally confident enough to wear a tight dress. I’m slowly going back to my old body and clothes. Workout and a healthy diet it’s all it takes. It’s a slow process but it can be done! www.mrsjonie.tumblr.com

Not the same shirt, but they are the same size! Photo on the left is me during move in to my senior year of college (September, 2010). I probably weighed 220ish and had not yet reached my highest weight (236). The photo on the right is me tonight after a great workout! At my last weigh in (January 2nd), I was 164.8. I’m 5’5”. These pictures show a loss of 55lbs, though I’ve lost over 70 so far. In 2010, I was bingeing uncontrollably, depressed, and completely sedentary. I had been struggling with my weight and battling an eating disorder since 2002. I rapidly gained 50 pounds after being sexually assaulted the summer before my senior year. It was my way of making sure it would never happen again. Now, I have a healthier relationship with both food and my body, I run 5 times a week, and I’m learning to find a sustainable balance where I can love myself and others while also getting fit, improving myself and my career, and ultimately enjoying every moment of every day. Life is too short to hate yourself, and it’s definitely too short to hurt yourself.
I still have about 30 pounds left to go until I reach my goal of losing 100 pounds. It’s been a long road so far, and I plan on working on this for the rest of my life. The weight loss isn’t as important to me as my mile pace or how I feel wearing tank tops in public. I don’t have to be at my goal weight to be happy or to love myself or to train for a marathon. I’m sure the weight loss will come with continuing to love myself and by learning to treat myself better each day. One day at a time. This is balance. :)

Hi, Artemis again!
So now that you saw my face progress here’s some body progress but mostly leg progress!
Again, 250 (2011) to 200 (2013)
Is that how much you are currently losing or is that what you plan on losing per week?
If you are eating healthy and that is how much you happen to be losing then yes it is perfectly ok. I know most say that 1 to 2 pounds is the ideal, but when you are 240 pounds, the percentage that you are losing with 3.5 pounds is not that much so don’t worry about it. This number will most likely decrease once you start getting closer to your target weight.
However, if that is how much you plan to lose, then of course, I would have say, don’t raise your hopes as it might not happen. Don’t plan how much you will lose but rather focus on which healthy meals you will eat and let the number of pounds be determined on it’s own by your body.
