Countdown to end of Summer: days left!

fitriot:
Here’s a before and during of my marvelously long weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey. It’s been a hell of a bumpy one, but that’s the point. Without struggle there is no progress. I still struggle, but I try my best to appreciate my body for what it is, not what it isn’t. The picture on the left is from 2012. The picture on the right is from a few days ago. I guess this serves as a reminder of how far I’ve come and how much farther I can go. So, yay me.

my first progress picture! 
so this is me before and after doing the 30 day shred for the first time. I highly recommend it as it’s not too long and easy to fit in to the day. I’m going to start ripped in 30 now as I am loving Jillian Michaels dvds so far. I wasn’t been able to see much of a difference until I took these photos, but now I can see I’ve lost some stomach flab which I would say is my problem area.
Combined with running 3/4 times a week and clean eating, I have lost 8 pounds during this month :)
so some stats:
upper arm: -0.5”
bust: -0.5”
chest: -2.5”
waist: -0.5”
hips: -1”
thigh: -1”

I was going through my photos and I found a photo of me during Halloween’12. 
I was 81 kg/178 lbs and was at the beginning of my fat loss journey.
It took me 7/8 months of struggle and suffering from binge eating disorder didn’t make it all any easier for me.
To be honest the first few months were basically a cycle of restricting, binging, and then using laxatives and doing cardio to ease off the guilt of binging. The slightest weight I lost by cardio and restricting I would gain back due to binging for a couple of days.
However, after discovering the healthy side of tumblr, I started lifting, eating moderately, realizing that I had a real disorder and that I’m not alone going through this unhealthy cycle.
Binging was hard to beat, and I confess I doubt that I have fully recovered, but the time span between my binging cycles has increased tremendously. Instead of binging every other day, I started binging every other week, and so on, and now I’ve been binge free for two months which I’m extremely proud of.
The second photo is of me during my graduation Summer’13. I was 72 kgs/157 lbs and I’m still making progress till this very day.
Lifting and healthy/moderate eating saved my life. They helped me learn to enjoy my life whilst working on reaching my goals, and I have never been happier nor more confident of my self and my body.
Note: My height is 176.5 cm in both photos.

Height: 5’3 / 163 cm
Starting Weight: Maybe 140 pounds/ 63 kg
Current(ish) weight: 125 pounds / 57 kg
Okay so there’s a pretty big time difference between the first and the rest, but I literally completely forgot i even took a picture at all and I just found this on my phone!
If I’m honest I’m glad I found it because otherwise I feel like I’ve made no progress at all, which confuses everybody because now I can run 5k and workout for 2 hours  but i look at myself and think that none of it has changed. I guess something must have- I bought my first bikini EVER which was a massive milestone (even if i don’t look good in it, or wear it out the point is that I had confidence to buy it in hopes of a better day)
 I decided to do this the  healthy way, so started yoga after a years break (and can finally do unsupported headstands and full downwards dog!) Running (could barely do 1.5km at the start) 5k, the 7 minute workout everyday for 100 days, Jillian Michaels 30 day shred (that woman is a goddess) and basically packing in a 15 minutes of dancing, running, abs or whatever between my day.
I cannot say I am happy with my body, but I am happy to have changed. I never knew my starting weight, so I never really had a numerical goal. I measure myself all the time and before I knew it I had gone from 34 inch waist to 30 to 29. Once I had gone below 30 I began to realise I could get to 28, and now am at 27.5. I cannot even wear my old trousers without them falling down, and I cannot believe I was that big around the middle. My final goal is (and don’t laugh) to be able to run my hand down my stomach and at the ‘end’ there will be no large bump of fat. I know thats not what’s important about this health journey i have been on, but I like having a goal in my mind, which to me would like be achieving the one goal I have had since I was 12 years old (16 now- but my parents are the kind of people who call you ‘piggy’ as a kid)
I am so sorry for this ramble, but I want to say thankyou for this page, thankyou for those who have done this the right way and I will see you with updated pics in month or so (THESE EXAMS ARE KILLING ME WHY AM I EVEN ON THE INTERNET RIGHT NOW?!)

- i do body weight strength training and 30 minute treadmill intervals . i dont have time to go to the gym because of my work schedule so i try to squeeze a work out in 3-4 times a week.
- i mostly eat fruit and veggies and lean meat too but .. i dont always eat 100% healthy well because PIZZA but i dont snack on processed food or drink pop at all. When i need sugar i usually just go for natural sugars from fruits.

Height: 5’7
Starting weight: 222 Lbs
Current Weight: 187 Lbs
Started in January 2014, about 4 months gone by now
I dont have a starting photo unfortunately but i still think you can see a big difference from the first and 3rd photos. I have been doing fitness blender workout videos and just eating more clean. I eat anywhere between 1300-1500 calories a day . I dont write down the calories but i calculate in my head on a daily basis. 
I have just recently started Jillian Michaels 30 day shred combined with her Ripped in 30 programs ( minus the eating plans). My short term goal is a 50 lb loss by August 1st. Updates soon!
