I’ve been following this tumblr for more than I can remember, all of the girls and boys gave me so much inspiration, every time I felt like giving up I just came here to look at some true success stories. And I was hoping to join this wall of fame one day ! Here is my bit….
I’m a 26 years old French girl, I’m 1m73 (last time I checked) or 5ft 8 1/2 inch (according to Google)
SW: 87 kg (maybe more..) 191.80
CW: 71 kg or 156.53
GW: 65 kg or 143.3 … well, be happy and healthy !
I started the 09/09/2013 so exactly 6 months ago, and lost 16 kg (35.27) and still have 6 kg (13.23) to go (before summer kicks in it would be nice…will see!). I couldn’t have done it without the help of my family, especially my step-father who became my live-in coach 24/7 (he’s really hard on me!) but healthy eating and loads of sport (biking in the countryside, swimming and running…bit of weight lifting and tons of abs) are paying off !
I know this is not something temporary but a new lifestyle I’m starting to embrace, but I’m so proud of myself that now I believe I can achieve anything!
If I can help anyone in any way, please let me know !
So the pretty large girl pointing to the smaller version was 250 lbs. the smaller version is sitting at, wait for it… 170 lbs.!!!!! I’m 5’8 and my goal weight is actually 140 lbs. I’m so close I can hardly stand it! Although I’m a firm believer in “love the body you’re in” I must say this one is far better than the one before :) this has been so hard but extremely worth it and if I can do it, trust me, ANYONE CAN DO IT!!!!! So if you’re on a weight loss journey, DON’T GIVE UP!!! Keep going and remember that it’s mind over matter! You’ve got this!
Before: 185-190lbs. Waist: 35, Hips: 38.5, Chest: 42.5
During: 168 lbs. Waist: 33, Hips: 37, Chest: 41
Since December 2012 I’ve lost 15+ pounds. I ate out of boredom mostly, and when I was sad. I hardly ever exercised. 185-190 was the heaviest I’ve ever been, and I hated the way I looked. I started eating healthy about a year ago, when I got sick of all the junk. I eat almost 100% organic now, no fast food, no soda, nothing artificial or processed. I started working out 3 days a week with cardio and weights in December, which just melted the pounds away. It happened so fast and so easily I barely noticed. Now, looking at the old pic of me, it’s crazy to think I let it get so bad, and how much better I feel now that I’m active and healthy again. I didn’t think it was possible, but I’m getting there!
Today, something amazing happened, someone took my picture in a bathing suit and I liked it! I’ve lost 60 lbs in the last year and a half. Some of those months were more productive than others but I’m proud of where I am with my body. I’ve been on vacation this week and I’ve worn a bikini and shorts for the first time in 15 years or more.
Starting weight: 235 lbs
Current weight: 175 lbs
