Goal (will reassess upon reaching: 200 pounds (90.7)
That’s 52 pounds in 8 months.
My diet is just watching my calories and eating much more cleanly. Smoothie for breakfast almost every morning, much smaller portions, and learning to say no to food offered to me have been some of my strongest strategies.
I’ve been running every other day or so all summer, as well as rowing in preparation for a race and working a fairly physical outdoor job.
This fall I’ll be taking up pilates and yoga, in addition to continuing to play Ultimate Frisbee.
One year ago I was at this party. I was depressed and morbidly obese. This was the worst period of my life : I run away from my friends and I feel guilty and bad about it. I spend most of my time in front of my computer and I was eating all the time. Binging was an important part of my life. Sport was only a memory from the past.
This year, I went to that party again. I am happy and I celebrate my weight loss. This is the best period of my life : facing my problem and enjoy going out with my friends. I spend most of my time between working out and plans for my future. Binging isn’t totally out of my life but I fight and finally starting to win the battle. Sport is a important part of my life.
I’m not finish with my journey but I just wanted to write down the things that make me happy and proud. I currently experience a weight loss plateau and my weight didn’t move since May but my progress are amazing.
I’m Marie and I’m 163 cm. I currently hitting a plateau and this is my reminder to keep the good job and to remind me why I am doing this. This is a before and during picture. (Feel free to ask me anything here)
I HAVE FINALLY LOST 25 LBS! (My goal is 165, so 11.8 lbs more to go!) (And then I have goal #2 which is 155) (And then I’m sure I’ll have another goal….)
On the left I am 200.8 lbs (April 22 2013) on the right I am 176.8 lbs. (August 16 2013) I feel like this journey has been so long but it’s really only been 3.5 months, I wish it would all happen so much faster but the healthy way doesn’t go fast and I know that. My exercise is mainly jogging (3.2 miles) 5/6 times a week. And if I’m not jogging I’ll do cycling or stairmaster. I really hate working out indoors aka why I don’t like the gym aka why I jog outside. My meals mainly consist of vegetables, fruits, some lean protein, and some whole wheats. Lots and lots of water and occasionally some diet sodas (Omg yeah, I said it!)

This is my weight loss from November 2012 to March 2013. Back in November I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism which explained why I had always been overweight. I had tried many times to lose weight but with little or no success. So I decided that I would really try my very best to change the way I thought about food, seeing it as a fuel rather than just eating for the sake of it. I started using myfitnesspal which is an amazing app and really helped me. I also started doing Zumba then later on swimming and aqua fit as well as walking lots and going to the gym.
Over the past month or so, I have slipped a bit and struggled to get back on track. So I’ve posted this up here to remind myself how well I’ve done and I keep looking and the other before and after pics on here to motivate me to keep going!
This is a before and after of a little over a year worth of progress. I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life. I remember the doctor telling me I was obese at a young age. At the age of 14 I weighed 196lbs and I stayed around the 180-190s most of my high school years. Before leaving to college I decided to get into shape. At first I hated eating small portion and healthy foods, but now i am IN LOVE with fruits and vegetables. I also learned to love exercising. It feels great to accomplish something you set out to achieve. I remember the struggle of finding pants that would fit me and i am so happy that I wont have to go through that anymore. I went from a size 16 to a size 8. I am still very flabby, and i still need to tone up. I am still trying to learn how to be comfortable in my own skin.
So its not until I look at photos like this that I see how much everything has changed.
Start weight- 188lbs
Current weight- 144lbs
Aim weight- 130lbs
Total loss: 3 stone
I am so proud of myself, I started my journey in February and since then my life has transformed! I have always struggled with my weight and it wasnt until I saw this photo on the left that I knew I needed to do something about it. Its been a tough past few months but it has been so worth it.. I am by no means a finished article, but work in progress. If your interested in how/ why I did it, take a look at my blog and I’d be happy to help you all too if you want to ask me anything!
The smallest of changed can make the biggest of differences :)
P.s. Cardio, weights and nutrition are my new best friends :) Along with my boyfriend who has taught me all he knows about fitness and weight loss :)
5’7” - 76 lbs lost in 9 months - I’ve been on the Medifast plan as well as working out with a personal trainer. I still have some weight to lose, but I’m an overall healthier person. I take this process one day at a time. This time around, I pick myself back up and start over when I fall instead of quiting.
I’m 5ft 4” and began my weight loss journey about 2 months ago..
The photo on the left is me at my highest weight of 154 pounds. I was miserable and decided something had to be done so started working out and eating clean. About 2 months later I had dropped 14 pounds and was at 140 in the photo on the right.
I am keeping going until I reach my ultimate goal weight of 120 pounds and will hopefully have an even better progress photo!
It can be really tough at times but I love watching my body change for the better! Its great!
Oh man, why is getting in shape so hard!!! I still have a long ways to reach my goal. The picture is not even a pic of myself at my top weight. It’s about 2 months after I had my second baby and right at two weeks from giving birth, I hit the gym hard and started working my butt off to get back into shape. I am 5’6”.

I’ve been stuck at around this weight for awhile and just been bouncing up and down 10 pounds for the past year(s). But now I’m dedicated to get in shape, be fit mentally and physically. It takes hard work, mentally and physically and boy do I know it! However, baby steps and learning recently and most importantly to eat clean.
Never ever ever let anyone tell you… that you can’t accomplish anything… not even yourself. If you wan’t something, dig deep inside your heart and strive for your goals! It’s not easy and we tend to stumble here and there, but just take it step by step. I promise, in the end, it’ll be worth it!
