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.
Hi! I recently went through my old pictures and found the picture to the left of me when I was in the US for the summer vacation in 2011. I couldn’t believe that I looked like that, but then I remembered how I felt at that time. I didn’t work out at all, and I ate too much junk and candies. I felt really horrible, and my self esteem was so low… I was 1.75 m., and weighed 74 kg. After that summer I started working out and thought about what I was putting in my mouth. I really wanted to look good and feel good. So now, I still am 1.75 m. but weigh 69 kg. I’ve lost some weight, but I’ve also gained weight because of all the muscles I’ve gained. I am so much happier now, and have tons of motivation to continue working out, eating healthy food like vegetables, chicken, fish and drink a lot of water instead of soda and juice. At the beginning, I hated running, it was so boring and I got really tired after like two minutes of jogging. But now, I’ve seen some results, I run for half an hour and get as exhausted as I got when I only ran for like a minute or two, and I love sweating, haha. I also like working out with manuals, and I feel like I get much stronger and I’ve gained muscles too!
My energy level is up, and I’m much happier and more confident then I’ve ever been before. Everyone can do the same thing as me, it’s possible for anyone who works hard and never gives up!!!
Good luck, everyone. Love, Erika.
(Dammnnnnn, my ass looks so good now, haha)
Its been a long journey, but I’ve learned so much a long the way!
Highest weight: 210+
Current weight: 135ish
Goal weight: Happiness. ^_^
I’ve been through SO many ups and downs with disordered eating and hating myself.. and I’m finally in a happy place! I eat a mostly raw diet similar to the 801010 or fruitarian lifestyle (I LOVE fruit!), but I don’t follow anything strictly nor do I obsess about calories like I used to. I listen to my body and eat when I’m hungry. I’ve never felt better.
Its been a long, long road.. and I’m still learning and I’m trying to love myself just the way I am.
Hugs to you if you’re reading this! Feel free to reach out to me if you need someone to talk to. My ask box is always open!! <3
I was about to get discouraged and quit after losing almost 10 kg and not seeing a difference. Than I saw this picture. Something IS happening! This is my 4 Weeks progress! I set my final weigh-in goal for April the 18th, because of a reunion. But now I don’t care about impressing others, as much as I care about feeling good!
This is my first progress picture so I’d thought I’d go for the face transformation first. I also find that the weight comes off my face first. I forgot I had cheekbones!
The left is when I was hitting the scales at 16+ stone (225lbs+) in 2012
The right is my current weight of 13st 4lbs (186lbs) in 2014 and I’m 5’4
I’ve been on many ‘diets’ that only lasted around 3-4 weeks. I’d see no changes then gave up. I finally realised I had to adapt to a healthier lifestyle in October 2013.
I’ve quit smoking, drink tons of water, I eat healthy and exercise 4-6 times a week. I kept myself as motivation by slowly watching my body change. It’s a struggle sometimes when all you crave is 20 slices of pizza, 10 burgers and 30 scoops of ice cream but your only fooling yourself.
Moderation is key. Healthy does not mean skinny.
Height: 5ft 7.5”
Dropped 62lbs in 4.5 months, by eating better and moving more! Fell off track shortly after that and gained a shocking 32lbs until around Dec 2013 when I decided enough was enough and dropped 18lbs again. I’ve now gone Keto and love it!
I may not be the perfect success story, but definitely a realistic example of weightloss. It’s ups and downs and loses and gains - but I’ll get there! 1lb at a time!

Hey guys! so my weight loss journey began in 2011 when i wanted to lose weight for a trip to Florida and i dropped 20 pounds with just diet and exercise and i was surprised by how easy it was. Then i plateaued for a year and a half and decided that i needed to lose more weight, so I did! I worked hard for about 3-4 months and dropped about another 30 pounds. My total weight loss was from 226 to 168. Honestly, weight loss really changed my life, but I am not going to lie and tell you that my weight loss had a direct correlation with my confidence because it didn’t. Weight loss was a great catalyst for my confidence boost; however, I believe that college was what changed me the most. Meeting new people, creating new memories and doing something more with your life drove me to be more confident. I am also the type of person who strongly believes that when someone wants something bad enough, they should do everything in their will power to go and get it. This includes literally EVERYTHING in your life. So if you’re feeling down and you need motivation to get up and get moving, just know that theres no one else but you standing in the way. The quote from the movie “Bridesmaids” really fits well here: “You are your problem. You are also your solution.”
