Before and during pics
Well, looking at these it’s all pretty horrific, but at least I can see some progress. And see that I really need to do something different with my hair and improve my posture.

The first one is after I’d already lost a stone and is in January 2014
weighing 214lbs. The last one is yesterday weighing 193lbs after I’d done my first 10k run.

Done using weight watchers (90% clean eating) and running doing the C25K and 5K-10K programmes.

I’m about half way to my target and about to start weights and yoga, along with the half marathon training.

Guys, this picture on the left is from April 1st 2014.
The right is from yesterday.

I actually have a shape! Crazy, I know. I’m no longer a blob.

Even though I’m not where I want to be, seeing this motivates me so much and I hope it does you as well!

YOU CAN DO THIS.

&please take pictures of your progress! You’d be amazed at how much your body is changing before your eyes.

Transformation Tuesday!!!

The bottom picture was taken at my dads during our vacation there in March of 2014. The top picture was taken 6/19/15.

As bad as this sounds…
The girl on the right looks like she’s struggling to breathe. Forced a smile for a picture she didn’t want to take because she was forced to face the way she really looked. Pictures made it real and this girl avoided them like the plague.

When I was obese, I was still a happy person. Unlike a lot of people who struggle with their weight, I still thought I was beautiful, I still was beautiful. Of course I noticed the fat on my body, but I never let it define me as a person. I didn’t realize that I looked any different than I do now, because on the inside I’m still the exact same and maybe I have always perceived myself this way. I always felt I was trapped in the wrong body, but it wasn’t until my health came into question that I did something about it, and looking back these pictures make me overly sad and ecstatic at the same time.

I’m sad because I didn’t see how my weight effected my decisions. So many opportunities lost because of this, not being able to really enjoy my college life. Noticing how unhealthy I looked, but still thinking “I didn’t look like that,” when in reality I did.

I’m ecstatic because I am the best me I have ever been. Even though I have always been a happy person, I’m even more happy. Opportunities keep coming and I’m not afraid to take them. I’m not worried what people are thinking about me when I workout, or what I choose to eat. More importantly I’m excited to share my healthy habits with anyone who needs help and I get to live an incredibly happy life.

Would I change being “the fat girl” NEVER. if anything it has made me a better person, care about myself, my actions and has made me one hell of a fighter.

Never give up.

Happy day to all! **************************************************

I’m getting a little emotional as I type this. I cannot express the thanks and gratitude I feel for everyone who’s encouraged me on my weight loss journey. Thank you for the comments, picture likes & inbox messages, texts/phone calls. I’ve lost 70lbs thus far. It seems so surreal. No surgery, no meal/weight loss programs, just changes in diet and working out regularly. I’m not done yet, but I’m very proud of my results. #MyFitnessJourney #myweightlossjourney #70lbslost #getfit #youcandoit #donotquit #donotgiveup #keepgoing #fitnessgoals #fitness #weightloss (please don’t use my image without my consent.)

#operationpolkadotdress 💋 update❕
Not too different from last week. I can notice little changes but nothing overly visual, so I did a Week 1-4-8 comparison instead. I did manage to do up the top button!✔️ Buuut it wouldn’t even stay done up for me to even turn to pick up my phone- it popped right open again. I tried twice haha. So no real button ‘do-ups’ this week.✖️ It won’t be too far away!
