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.

I’m so glad I’ve finally started to see results! i know at least half of the pounds i lost were sheer water weight, but I’m gonna keep going
this is after just 2 weeks of clean eating and intense exercise. I’m still working to my goal of 115, and maybe even 110, so this is a during picture!
every day i do an hour of pure toning
old kathy smith butt and thighs videos that are like 30 years old but very very effective
30 day shred (im on level 2)
and then an hour or half hour of pure cardio 
either power walk around my neighborhood for an hour
or bike for a half hour
i also bought the nutribullet and drink a kale and fruit smoothie for breakfast and dinner, but eat some steamed veggies or baked fish or baked chicken for lunch
i also steam lots of chickpeas in water and salt and eat those for protein (SO GOOD AND HEALTHY) 
i RARELY treat myself, just because i want to make this a lifestyle and train myself to resist temptation. once in a while i’ll have a mini chocolate or something but i keep my diet mostly vegetarian
im also going to the beach next week and hope to shed a few more pounds, i just ordered premium garcinia and a cleanser to aid the weight loss!
ive struggled with my weight all my life and im so happy i am finally at a place where im beginning to really love my body!!

I also started to make healthier choices like less chips and cookies and more fruits and veggies. After about 2 months, I started working out both at home and the gym, and just recently I have started weightlifting and doing strength training, which has made a huge difference.

Height 5’6”Weight in both before & after 250 lbs & 175 lbs.How long did it take you? The first picture was taken around 4 years ago, not at my heaviest. It took me about 6 months to lose the first significant amount of weight which was about 55 lbs. I pretty much maintained a steady weight for a while, and just recently I decided to start working for the body I’ve always wanted. So far I’ve lost 20 pounds in 3 months.Diet and exercise strategy? I exercise daily, and my meals mainly consist of lots of vegetables, and fish.  I eat lots of fruit too. I dont really like red meats so thats why I dont eat them very often. I usually run 2-5 miles a day or I’ll do a mix of strength and cardio (30-40 minutes) all at home because  I cant really afford the gym.
