85lb

HW: 250lbs
CW: 150lbs

To those who have been following me for a little while will know I use that before photo for comparisons a lot!!! But I was sixteen!!!!!!! And I still cannot believe how far I have come since then.

I wasn’t even at my highest weight - probably around the 230 mark.
I have lost approx 100lbs in 2016, with 85lbs being in the first 6 months.

This Xmas season really has had me overindulge. I spend the weekends gaining what I’ve lost during the week lol - but hey ho, it’s Xmas 🎅🏼

To anybody thinking of starting in 2017… Just remember that 6 months to remove 21 years of damage isn’t half bad. Just go for it 😅💪🏼

2016 was the year I lost weight, and 2017 will be the year I reach goal and work on my fitness!

“It’s never easy, it will be a fight renewed each morning but it’s possible. My legs have more than doubled 🙈 First picture taken back at the start of 2016 (85lbs) @ one of the hardest times in my life. Fast forward a year, second taken recently (145lbs) and I would have never imagined I’d get to where I am today. For so long I was scared of my own situation. I was even more scared to admit I had a problem and I’ve learned that’s OKAY!! Nobody is perfect, recovery takes time! You’re going to want to give up, but don’t. No place worth going is ever going to be easy to get to. WE ARE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY! ☺️☺️”

-85lbs lost!

Figured it’s been a while since I posted a progress pic. I’ve hit a bit of a plateau, which is frustrating. I know 85 pounds is nothing to sneeze at, but my goal is to hit 100 pounds by my 2-year veganniversary which is in July. So only 15 more pounds to go, which shouldn’t be too difficult (key word: shouldn’t) but I, like many others, struggle with the stagnant maintaining weight that often is a result of losing weight. In the beginning the weight comes off super quick, but then your body inevitably adapts and adjusts to your new healthy lifestyle so you have to work even harder to keep losing. But all I have to do is look at pictures like this when I need a little extra motivation :) What are some of your plateau-busters that you can share with me??

The difference of a year. Im not sure what I weighed in the first pic. I think around 350lbs, my highest weight being 365lbs. The pic today is around 282lbs.
For five months I lost/gained the same 15lbs by trying to use techniques that wouldnt work, eating small bits of poor food, and hardly working out.
Mid-December I finally decided it was time to stick to low carb (which is doc recommended for my thyroid) and work out 3 times a week. With school I havent worked out as much, but I still feel good and am losing weight. This just gave me the push to get a small salad instead of pasta at dinner tomorrow, and follow my goals.
I wish I could see my progress when I look at myself, part of me worries Ill always see who I was 80lbs ago, but Im not going to focus on that. I have summer to prepare for. 😄💪

I was 'recovered' for quite a while but I've relapsed within the last few days. I've eaten between 700-800 cals each the last two days. I'm shooting for 500. I'm 5'2 and I have always been naturally underweight. My SW: 98lbs. I want to get down to 85lbs, then 75lbs. I'm vegan (which actually helped me with my eating disorder and being vegan has nothing to do with my ED). Do you have any advice for how to get down besides cal restriction/fasting and exercise? Thank you!

Yay I’m vegan too 💞 Uhm well honestly I think your mentality is also really important. I used to keep telling myself ‘oh you’ll never lose weight’ and at that time I didn’t. But now I just keep reminding myself that I will lose the weight, I will look great soon and it’s helped me so much! Your body listens to your mind, so just focus on positive things and maybe it’ll help you too?

-85lbs difference

Lately I’ve been feeling kinda down on myself regarding the whole weight loss thing, just because the scale hasn’t moved in months and I’m like “helloooooo what’s goin onnnnnn I’m still working really hard why am I not seeing numerical results??” But I know it’s not good to focus on the numbers, it’s better to focus on how you feel. So with that in mind, I’m celebrating my two year veganniversary by rejoicing in the fact that I FEEL stronger, healthier, prettier, cleaner, and most importantly happier. Yes, I lost a significant amount of weight. But all the things I gained is so much bigger than that. I’ve learned to eat with the intention of providing energy and nourishment for my body, not to mask whatever struggle I’m dealing with at that moment. I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone in SO many ways regarding exercise and how I feel about working out. I never thought I would be the girl that’s like “ugh I haven’t worked out all week I feel so gross.” but now I definitely do feel it! Which is honestly so cool! To know that my body can communicate to me “Hey, I like it when you do that thing to me! Can we do it again? I feel so good afterwards!” is just really rewarding and satisfying. Like guys, two years ago I was laying on the couch eating taco bell breakfast binge watching orange is the new black in a dark room. And today I went to a WEIGHT LIFTING class. With like, intense barbells and burpees and boxjumps and shit. Like what??? This is wild! I wouldn’t have been caught dead at a gym like that two years ago! It’s important to periodically take a step back and admire your accomplishments, because it’s so easy to get caught up and forget about how far you’ve come. I feel like I’ve gotten more connected/in tune with my body over the past two years. I don’t hate it anymore. It’s the only one I’m ever going to get, and it works very hard for me every day. Anyway, those are just some thoughts on my mind today. I’d love to hear your vegan transformation experiences, please share them with me!

All I can say about that before picture is…..yyyyikes!! Crazy that I let myself get to that point without really realizing it. I was a senior in college and I had the mindset of “WHO GON STOP ME HUH!?!!” to everything. Drinking, eating, etc. But, I’m trying not to focus my energy too much on how I looked then and more on how great I feel now. I feel leaner, stronger, more agile, more energetic, and more confident now when I walk in a room. There has been a huge shift in how I perceive myself and how I understand the way people see me. I realize what a cliche my life has become - Jersey Graphic Designer goes vegan, moves to California, becomes a dog walker, goes on a weekend yoga retreat, finds eternal happiness in the sunshine. But ya know what, cliche or not, I am happy. And that’s all that matters.
