10I’m so glad that I decided to take a three month progress pic. Even though I have lost roughly 10 lbs, I didn’t think that my appearance had changed any. But it makes me so happy to be able to see visual proof of my hard work!
I am 23 yrs old and 5’5”. My highest weight is pictured at about 190 lbs (maybe even a little higher). I felt so horrible about myself, but it was finally seeing my weight on a scale that made me decide to actually DO something about it. I slowly changed my diet, weeding out fatty foods, processed sugar and empty carbs. I stopped drinking soda and juices completely and now only drink water or green tea. The majority of my diet now consists of fruit, veggies and fish. Sometimes I slip up… but I always get right back to my healthy eating the next day. It’s been getting easier and easier to stick to my new diet. I have stopped craving breads at all!
Five days a week I use an elliptical for an hour, alternating between jogging and resistance training. I also have a daily regiment of sit-ups, leg lifts and planks that is increased weekly. Every week I can do more sit-ups, and I can handle more resistance on the elliptical. I’m really excited about how strong I’m getting. And this is only the beginning! :)
5 month progress :)
Before: 123-125 lbs, 23% bodyfat
After: 122 lbs, 19.5% bodyfat
I try to lift heavy, eat clean, cheat meal once a month, avoid alcohol, and I do minimal cardio (maybe once a month, whenever I feel like it). The journey’s not over yet, I’m going to increase the amount of cardio (do some HIIT) for some more fatloss :).
Height: 5’2” (157 cm)
SW: 110 lbs (50 kg)
CW 108 lbs (49 kg)
I know I haven’t lost much weight since I started my journey 2,5 months ago, but my intention was to lose fat (not weight). The progress is slow, but I can see it from day to day. This picture is of my tummy after 2,5 months of working out 4-5 times a week and clean eating (80% of the time). I still think I have a lot of workouts to do to get the body I want and this picture motivates me :-)
I’m so glad I took a progress picture! My stomach was actually the one thing I thought didn’t change much but LOOK AT IT. Note, the first picture wasn’t my highest weight. About two or three years ago I was up at 165lbs. I cannot believe I’ve lost almost thirty pounds. And since December I’ve felt so discouraged with the occasional binge and the not-so-occasional cheat I assumed there was little to no progress, despite what the scale said. Now I know to just stick to it and good things will happen!!
Omg I’m so excited, only about ten/fifteen to go until my dreeeeam weight. :’)
Face difference :)
The picture on the left was taken during June 2011. The picture on right was taken April 2013. Only an 8lb difference!
I am 5’3. I am a gymnast and do cheer leading I also usually run once a week and exercise 1-3 times a week! Plus clean eating of course! That’s how I did it!
The left photo is when I weighed about 138/140. I ate whatever I want and had no exercise (literally).
The photo on the right is from about a month or two ago. I had been working out consistently and eating reletively clean. I’m still working on my eating habits. They’re about a 5/6 out of 10, and I’m still working. I was about 135 here. It’s not a big weight difference, but I’m gaining muscle, too! :D
I’m not there yet, but I’m hoping I’ll look nice for summer :)
I have been pretty much in the 170-180 range for months now and it really has been bringing me down, but I have to remember that the scale isn’t my only indicator!
I’ve been doing high-intensity cardio 4-5 times a week and cleaning up my food a bit!
5’4” CW 172 41-32-42
decided to eat healthier and work out after i had to purchase new clothes cuz all my clothes from 6 months ago wouldn’t fit anymore o__o. cardio at least 4 times a week, kickboxing, and racquetball are pretty much all i do. before the number on the scale was the biggest thing to me when dieting, but then i realized that it didn’t matter as long as i looked better o_o. not done, still working on it.
This is me after a little more than three months of hard work. The first picture was taken when I considered myself fully “recovered” from anorexia. Since then, I have worked hard to keep my eating habits healthy and exercise within reason without cutting calories. My starting weight was 165lbs, and I am currently at 163lbs. Only 2lbs difference - goes to show what weight training can really do for you!
Before: 165 January
During: 164 April
thats right, just a one pound difference here. do not pay attention to the number on the school. this is about a four month difference and I becamse extremely frustrated when the number on the scale didn’t budge. It was so discouraging and I was starting to make so many excuses.
This past week I’ve been more motivated than ever to reach my goal!

Right picture : December 2012

Total lost (so far): 7 lbs
I began seriously working out at least 4 days a week in December 2012 (4 months ago). During the first month.. the weight scale did not change at all and I was starting to get discouraged. Another 3 months later… I’ve lost 7 lbs and got passed my plateau! I like taking pictures of myself more than looking at the scale because I like weight lifting and having muscles »»
First progress photo for before and after :)
It’s been a month since I started working out and cleaning up my eating and I can’t be happier that I’m at least seeing some progress :)
Weight: 121lbs -> 114.6lbs
Before: 170 After: 160 Not done yet, but this picture is proof that the squat challenges work! I did te tiasquat, followed it exactly as six when I reached 100 daily squats I started remaking them up in 25 throughout the day… Whenever I had time! I’m doing it again this month, and hope to next year post a full body before and after :) Join me in my journey at itswherewefinish.tumblr.com And good luck in your own goals!!
HW/SW: 160 lbs
I am so glad that I can run for a minute and thirty seconds without getting so tired now!
The before was taken on March 29 and the after photo was taken on April 13. This is a two week difference since my fiance and I decided to get fit. We ran about 5 min at the gym. Then we would lift some weights. After that, we would work on the other gym equipment - arms, legs, back, etc. We also stopped eating so much fast food and sugary drinks. We snacked on apples and bananas between meals and drank lots of water.
Even though he is already so thin (he’s 5’7 and weighs only 112 lbs!), my fiance felt better after working out. I also feel great and hope to reach my goal weight by the end of August. (his goal is 125) Maybe by Christmas vacation we could show off our bods at the beach!
