June 2013 (64kgs) - March 2014 (60kgs)
I was the typical “skinny-fat” girl and I wanted to change that to finally love my body and be as strong, healthy and fit as I could be. In January 2013 I weighed 58kgs, and after thinking excessive restrictions on my food, especially carbs, would help me, I like a lot of ‘clean’ eaters binged continuously when I came into contact with those “cheat meals”. In June I had gained 6 kgs and an even worse relationship with myself, my body and food. It took me the rest of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 to find that following and IIFYM approach to food, doing minimal cardio in the form of HIIT and lifting heavy weights was the best option for me.
I have never felt better about myself, even though I still have a long ways to go.
From 230+ to ~185 currently (I gave up weighing myself for lent).
I’m submitting this photo of my younger brother. He lost this weight by starting a physical job (gas station attendant, and then a truck washer) and by cutting out some treats. He didn’t eat particularly clean, but he moved A LOT. And you guys, I am SO FREAKING PROUD of him. He has plans to tone it up some, but he has great arms and shoulders. Mah leetal pudgy baby is all grown up! :)
Hey guys! Here are the most recent Before and Afters I have put together. The lowest weight I have ever been is 140lbs, but since then I been lifting and gained some muscle weight. I haven’t seen the scale move in quite a while, but my body is still changing and making progress. I am losing inches, toning up, and gaining immense amounts of confidence! Fuck what the scale says, go by how you feel.
LW: 140 lbs
CW: 144 lbs
I have gone from wearing an XL to S-M (size 18 to 8-10)

After watching “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” and other food docs on Netflix I decided a change needed to happen
I am looking to follow those who are making big lifestyle changes! I need inspiration and like minded people
It’s taken me a lot of courage to put this up, but this is me (left) at my biggest, at 290lbs I knew that I had to do something about my weight. I’d never really been overweight, and standing at 6”4 i am heavier than average, but its easy to see that I had really let myself go over the last three years and i had become miserable. Excuse after excuse had kept putting me off doing something about this, and it wasn’t until I visited my doctor about my lower back hurting, that he told me I was obese and that I needed to do something about it.
Since March 2013 I’ve been working my ass off 6 days a week, every week at the gym, eating clean and not drinking or smoking.
It is possible to change your life around, but only YOU can do it, if you want it enough, anything is possible. At 230lbs, I can honestly say I am at my happiest I’ve been In years, and even though I still have a long journey ahead of me, looking back on this just proves to me that I have what it takes.
I hope this motivates other people to do something about any weight issues they may have, and if anyone wants any advice at all, don’t hesitate to ask, my ask box is always open!
I came home for the weekend and was cleaning out my closet to get some spring/summer clothes for my apartment and I found my senior year prom dress!! I could resist….I HAD to try it on! I knew I’d lost a few pounds since then but I didn’t know it was this much! It wouldn’t even stay up without me holding it! This just motivates me even more after trying it on! Whenever I feel like I can’t do this healthy LIFESTYLE anymore I think I’ll just look at these pics and remember why I started! Eating healthy,first if all, has made me feel so much better and on top of that I get results like this?? It’s just an amazing feeling! I remember how low I felt looking through my prom pictures that year and I never want to feel that way again. I’ve gained so much confidence since then and I have never felt better!
226 pounds vs 150 pounds.
July 2013 vs. March 2014
I weighed 205 lbs. in July, and I am now 165! My goal is 140. :)
This is me 2 years apart. I took to lifting weights and eating low carb with minimal to zero cardio to get here. I knew it would be a long term plan and not a short term fix.
I loved what i did so much I decided on a new career and permanent lifestyle change. I am now a Personal Trainer, Sports Nutritionist and Precision Nutrition coach. I am also in the final stages of my BSc (hons) Psychology degree.
It’s amazing what a massive influence a change in health, lifestyle and nutrition can impact other areas of your life.
My name is Anna, and I’m almost 20, and 5’6. The pic on the left is me before my senior prom. I hated my prom pictures. I was unhappy, in an unhealthy relationship, and I hated myself.
On the right, I am finishing up my sophomore year of college. I have lost 38 pounds total, beginning at my highest weight of 202, and getting down to my lowest of 164.
I run, scuba dive, lift, and walk. I changed my whole lifestyle, making 80% healthy food choices. Let me tell you, I love to eat! Hoping to lose another 10-20 pounds before/during summer.
I have a progress blog, fitgirlanna.tumblr.com, but it’s not my main. My main is thatturtlegirlanna.tumblr.com. I post some fitness stuff on there too, and I follow back! :)
My best friend and I have almost always been overweight. Since 2012 though we managed to lose a lot of weight, each one of us with different ways. We both were 220+ lbs in first picture. This period my friend is around 176lbs, she eats all kinds of food in moderation. I reached 150lbs with strict and clean eating, but after some mental food breakdown that lasted a few months i gained 11lbs back. I’m working on my portions limit now trying to reach my goal weight at 132lbs.
