Now I never thought I’d be able to post this. But these are my before and after pictures! On the left I weighed 145 pounds, I actually made it up to 150. I was so depressed about my weight and how I looked, it was awful. I was so impatient and wanted instant results so I always gave up.
I actually lost the weight maybe close to a year ago. I was living on my own with this low life I was dating that didn’t have a job, so on top of all the bills I had to pay I could barely afford food. I pretty much starved, I was down to 115. 
I moved back home in December and started packing on weight again, not a whole lot but more then what I wanted to and now I’m at 119. I’ve been exercising regularly and eating healthier. Its honestly the most rewarding feeling ever! 3 years ago I would’ve never believed that I would look this good and feel this confident. That just motivates me that much more to keep working at it because I definitely still have improvement to make.
On that note, if anyone has any tips on exercises to help slim down thighs, or just any exercises in general, I would be so grateful for any advice!

Weight loss of 30 lbs in 2 months by eating a diet low in carbs, salt, and fat as well as high in protein. I have recently started to lift and swim as well. I am 5’3 :)

My weight was 297 when I started and 205 after 1 year, I started eating smaller portions of proteins and added salad & fresh vegetables to every meal. All my snacks were in the 100 to 150 calorie range with 3 to 4 servings of fresh fruits daily. The only exercising I did was walk on the tread mill 30 minutes a day. I could not run because of a bad ankle and sore knees. I also had back issues so most other forms of exercises were out. Before  I started my diet I took many forms of medications I have almost eliminated them. Now I just try to maintain this lifestyle on a daily basis.

This is me before and during :)
My name is Angel and I am 17 years old. I am about 5’3”.
My weight in the before picture on the left (my eighth grade year) is 215 lbs
My weight in my during picture on the right (my junior year) is 165 lbs
I am planning on entering my senior year sexy and fit!!!!
I didn’t actually start trying to change my body until my sophomore year. When I did I noticed that other than my body physically changing, the exercise and proper nutrition definitely positively effected my struggle with depression. I started jogging around my neighborhood. Fitspo helped motivate me to make a change. I hit a huge plateau at about 180 lbs for months and I got incredibly discouraged. However, I’m back now and motivated for the summer! It is definitely possible to eat meat and be healthy but I chose to become vegetarian. That definitely helped my weight loss. I do not have a goal weight but I have an idea of what I’d like to look like. My goal is to be lean, tight, toned and healthy!

I lost 66lbs through diet alone. During exam time however I gained 20lbs back :(
At 196lbs, and with university over, I decided to join the gym. I then started personal training a month later and I have never felt better. My confidence at the gym was very low but my personal trainer has helped significantly. I am now a sucker for strength training. I throw a little cardio in my workouts too, about 20 mins. Since joining the gym in November I have lost 23lbs of fat and also gained muscle - ain’t nothing wrong with muscle!
In total I have lost 69lbs, so happy with my progress!
Just keep going and remind yourself how far you are coming. Lift weights, lunge, squat etc - I have noticed a massive difference in my body since strength training! Can’t wait to post the final result in a few more months!
Height: 5’6
HW: 242lbs (pictures 2 and 3)
CW: 173lbs (picture 1)
GW: 150lbs
p.s. I’m hoping my calves grow smaller!!

So here it is! I had never posted a progress picture so here you have.  The first one was back on april/may 2012, it probably wasn’t my heaviest but this is the only good picture I have.  The second picture was taken around 2 weeks ago! This is my first progress picture ever and I’m amazingly happy and this only inspires me to keep me going!
I hope this also inspires my followers who are working their butts off to lose those extra pounds. Hard work pays off guys!!

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”

So I thought maybe I’d finally put the pictures side by side. I lost some weight, I’m pretty proud, just gotta keep going and tone up some more! Summer here I come.

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?!)
