weightlossjourney

Yesterday’s lunch - it was a little calorie heavy, but still less than a golden arch’s drive thru 🍔🍟 && WAY healthier and nutritious.

Christmas 2014 and Christmas 2015

I’m not entirely sure of the weight lost between these two pictures. Somewhere between 65-70+ pounds.

I’ve been on my weight-loss journey for exactly a year now. Words can’t even describe how I feel.

I *dreamed* of the day where I could stop looking at other’s before and after pictures and feel envy. They inspired me immensely but I never thought I could achieve it. Never. Finally I realized that I had, had ENOUGH. After going through a bad break up I realized that I completely lost myself and that I hated who I had become. I felt trapped in my own body! I was so shameful! I didn’t even want to be seen! I felt like I could never be admired again!

So I started slow. Cut out pop, sugary drinks, bread, all fast food and sweets.

Switched to whole grain and whole wheat. Eventually I cut carbs almost altogether.

Went on brisk walks on my treadmill and moved around more.

Cut out all the “whites” that were bad for me: white bread, white refined sugar, white potatoes.

I MEAL PREPPED! That was my biggest change. Every Sunday I cooked a lean protein (chicken breast, lean turkey, lean cut steak) paired with a green veggie (steamables!!!!) and usually either a salad or some sort of green side. Occasionally a healthy complex carb like sweet potatoes or squash.

I drank a ton of water. When I wasn’t drinking water I was drinking green tea. 3, 4, 6 cups a day when I could!

I make green tea/lemon/kale “smoothies” and chug them for breakfast every morning.

Breakfast is usually something like egg whites with turkey sausage and kale, or plain Greek yogurt with dried fruit.

Snacks are usually something like veggies with hummus or celery and all-natural peanut butter.

And then i had cheat days. And sometimes cheat weekends. And sometimes cheat weeks. Because I’m only human.

I like burgers. I like fried chicken. I love beer. I’m not going to lose myself in this process. I always pick right back up, detox, and start right back up again.

This is not a diet. This is a lifestyle change. This is my new life and I will NEVER go back to that girl on the left.

I didn’t think I would make it here. I was the girl who dreamed of making this post, just like you are reading this right now. I let the future seem too scary and too impossible to imagine myself in this place.

And here I am. This can be you too.
I believe I you. Now it’s time to believe in yourself.


Highest weight (ever): 255
Start weight: 239
Current weight: 162
Goal weight: 145

I am SO close, I can taste it. ;)

This is so true! I always think to myself “good for you” when I see a person who is obviously at the beginning of their fitness journey. We all have to start somewhere! #gym #goals #weightlossjourney #weightloss #fitnessjourney #havetostartsomewhere #bekind #goodforyou #slowandsteady #encouragement #motivation

Ok so it’s quite embarrassing but do you remember when I told you I acted in the theatre for a while? Today- for the very first time I decided to google and see the pictures of the play that I had the leading role in. I didn’t want to see any of these pictures before, not the ones my friends or family took, not the ones placed in newspapers- just not the ones in which I wasn’t posing,which weren’t edited and perfectly cropped in the way that would make me look much thinner… because I facing how I REALLY looked would make me feel horrible. Seeing all these pictures today made me extremely proud but at the same time brought back some awful memories from the past. In the left picture above I was going through the hardest time in my life, I was really on the edge and I was planning to kill myself each time I was coming back from school, where I was bullied by most of my classmates and even my closest friends who were laughing along with the bullies and saying “I have no chill”. Like I said many times my life was something I never, ever, ever want to go back to and I’m deathly afraid of gaining back my weight. I believe most of people who lose a massive amount of weight go through that but I don’t really see anybody talking about that fear… Turns out losing weight is not the only one hard part of this journey. I’m a new, better, happier and stronger person and starting my wls journey has honestly SAVED MY LIFE but right now I’m living with a constant fear of going back to the past. I hope with all my heart it’s just another stage that I have to go through and it will get easier soon because I DO love myself now and it’s only because of all the hard work I’ve put to look the way I do, I accepted everything what’s unchangeable and changed everything what is changeable and that’s my greatest achievement but I have a lot of work to do yet, to become stronger MENTALLY now and I’m going to fight for that. I went through a long, hard journey and I proved that even the laziest, unhappiest people are able to get anything they want but overcoming my fears seems to really be one of the hardest ones for me and that’s another of the goals of mine which I WILL achieve👊🏼

A late #transformationtuesday is still a #transformationtuesday 😜 my journey has had a ton of ups and downs - I have been bigger, I have been smaller - but never have I ever been healthier, stronger, fitter or happier 💪🏻 #weightloss #weightlosssuccess #weightlossjourney #fit #fitnessjourney #fat2fit #fattofit #fattofitjourney #progress #fitfam #fitspo #fitgirl

Decided to get dolled up today (not really that much, but enough where a before and after seemed appropriate)

We used to lay on her bed, paint our nails, and fantasize about the days when we’d be thin. Who’s fantasizing now? We’re down 320 lbs collectively!!! Kayla, I am grateful every single day that we’re best friends. I am SO proud of us! I love you! 😘💪🙌👊
Follow her for lots of pretty pictures. Mostly of food. ❤️❤️

2015 was probably the most important year of my life so far. At the very end of January I set some goals and became the most focused that I’ve ever been. In less than a year, I can proudly say that I’ve lost 167 lbs so far and I’m the healthiest, most #confident, and happiest that I’ve ever been. 💪🏽 2015 is the year that I learned that I am capable of doing anything that I set my mind to. I learned that if you want something bad enough, no excuse in the world is good enough to get in the way. #Health and #fitness has become a huge part of my life and I don’t see that ever changing. I’m excited to see what #2016 has to offer- it has some pretty big shoes to fill! I hope I can #inspire someone else to take those first few steps because it is SO worth the hard work and dedication! #HappyNewYear! 🎉🎊#weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #feelsunreal #addictedtosuccess #weightloss
