5yrs total. 2yrs dedicated.
My strategy for losing weight was to trick myself into thinking I wasn’t on a diet. I ate whatever I wanted in moderation. I followed Weight Watchers very loosely. I monitored my fat, sodium, and carb intake. I ultimatley watched my calories and was on a 1200-1500 calorie diet. With this plan I ate whatever I wanted until I reached my max. I found myself not being satisfied because of the choices I was making, so this really helped me shift gears and give more thought to the foods I was eating. It trained me for the best. I’m excited to lose more weight and tone up!
The first pic is from 2010. I have no idea how heavy I was there. Maybe 240 lbs. Maybe more. I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin — I think that comes across clearly in the photo. I’m now around 162 lbs at 5’10”. I’m a marathoner and I’m in the best shape of my life.

First picture was taken on May 31, 2013 and the second was taken on February 11, 2014. Not where I want to be exactly but I’m still going and not giving up. :)
5 feet and 2 inches tall, btw.

This journey has taken 3 years, but its all been worth it! :)
This is a 6 month progress photo. I achieved this through clean eating, smaller portions, and working out every single day. I have lost a lot of fat, and I have gained a lot of muscle.

I’ve been feeling discouraged so I felt the need to post another progress pic. I am 5 7 and been on my weight loss journey since November. I am so happy I began when I did and I look forward to the progress I will have made by June!

Since November the 10th, I’ve been pretty dedicated to eating cleanly. They say that you should eat healthily 80% of the time and relax for the other 20% but that simply isn’t good enough if you splurge on that 20%. I tried to eat organic and unprocessed food 100% of the time because the little surprises and unpredictable occasions will make up for that 20%. For exercise, I run twice a week from 5k-7.5k, I go to the school gym once or twice a week doing cardio for 20 minutes (treadmill+crosstrainer) and then weighted lunges (4kg in each hand) and I use the hip abductor machine for my inner thighs. I also normally swim once a week for up to 50 minutes. I sometimes add in aerobics and LBT classes at the local gym if I don’t have too much homework.

Focus on slowly building your habits, not on perfection.

It has been almost a year and a half since I’ve started my new lifestyle. I’ve been dieting for almost 15 years. Instead of eating less I started eating more and it finally pays off.
I eat clean and work out 3-4 times a week, mostly weight lifting. I’ve lost almost 35 pounds so far and I feel much much better nowadays. Even though sometimes it feels like I haven’t made any progress at all, I know it takes time to get there :)
My progress so far:
SW: 98 kg / 215.6 lbs (September 2012)
CW: 81,2 kg / 179 lbs (January 2014)
GW: 75 kg / 165 lbs
UGW: 65 kg / 143 lbs

Almost missed it! It was a VERY long day. Just getting home now.
The past 10 months have been really amazing in terms of health and fitness: I figure prepped and lost 50lbs (but nearly killed myself so I gained back 10 and stopped that nonsense lol), ran a 10k, back squated 215lbs, once logged 26 running miles in 8 days, joined a running club, nailed a bunch of yoga poses, had the best iron blood count of my life, and so many more little/BIG milestones!
I have so many more exciting things coming up: a half marathon, full marathon?, I’ll be in Cosmopolitan magazine, hitting new PRs at @koanation.
I’ll keep posting my progress and sharing as long as you keep being inspired 😃 So, be consistent, plan and be patient. You’ll get there

Hello all. My name is Stephenie. I am 22 years old, about 5’7. Since January 1, 2013 I have lost a total of 101.6 pounds. My highest recorded weight was 297 pounds. No diet pills, no fad programs. Just putting in my hours at the gym and some serious re-evaluating of my eating habits. I have not set a goal weight, the way I feel is that I will know my goal weight when I get there.

The real weight loss came in the summer/fall of 2013. I did a lot of calorie counting, clean dieting, and a lot of cardio with some weights. I was going in and running anywhere from 3-5 times a week every night after work. I had a range of calorie intake of approx. 1500/day.
I’ve added a few other photos for context above to see my heaviest and where I am now. I couldn’t be happier with my lifestyle change and health.
Hope my photos help someone else realize that no matter how daunting their weight loss goals may be, today can always be the day that starts that journey toward something that will always be the best decision you make.
