On the left is me in 2008. 17 and really really fat. On the right is me from yesterday. I spent a lot of my life being pretty fat. Last year was the first time I stuck with going to the gym 5-6 days a week and eating right. I made several attempts in the years before, but couldn’t stick with it. I’m not where I want to be just yet, but it’s the most progress I’ve made. Determined to keep going now. When I get to my goal weight, I’ll be content enough to completely show off my transformation.
