Before, January 2015: 190lb(86kg)
After, January 2016: 120lb(54kg)

I took the first picture last January. I hit my highest weight, 225lb, in June 2014 and had been losing slowly since then. I got to 180lb in autumn, but I had been drifting off my low calorie diet. I ate very small portions, mostly lean cuisines and weight watchers. It was hard to stick to, and I gained 10lb over the holidays.

So that January I made a New Years Resolution. I wanted to be healthy. Two ways I could do this were by quitting smoking and changing my diet. I wanted to lose weight, but I didn’t want to feel so deprived. I had grown up vegetarian and already loved fruits and vegetables, so I decided to go vegan in 2015. No more tasteless diet foods, I ate fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and learned how to cook for myself. I always had a big salad for lunch, and I cut out processed foods. I also got a fitbit and made sure I hit my step target most days. I discovered a love of running as well, and I never thought I’d enjoy exercise so much!


If you are making a New Years Resolution to get healthy and lose weight, I recommend a strictly plant based diet. IT CHANGED MY LIFE!! Go vegan in 2016! Plant based diets are beautiful, wonderful, delicious, and I FEEL GREAT! Follow my journey at losinggain.tumblr.com

I am 5'6". The photo on the right was on my vacation to Florida last summer (2012). I was 165 pounds and after this vacation I decided I MUST make a change in my lifestyle. For the rest of the summer I started eating healthier but not really exercising much. In December of 2012 I started running and exercising along with keeping a healthy diet. Now, on the left I am 127 pounds!!! I feel so much more confident about myself, more than I ever thought I would have. I don’t get sick as often and am happier, and more full of energy. I still continue to run every other day and do weights, and I am currently training for my first 5K! I still continue my healthy lifestyle and look for newer ways to improve my health every day
