Hello! I’m Nikki. 5’4”. In the first picture I weighed 208 lbs, and in the second 138 lbs. 70 lbs down now! I started my journey in November 2012 (after some miserable birthday pictures) so this is about 7 months progress of clean eating and exercise.
To be honest, I never thought I would get down to this weight ever. I didn’t think I had that much to lose. More like if I was honest with myself, I didn’t want to admit that I had that much to lose, plus saying that my goal was to lose 70 lbs or more just seemed so outrageous and unattainable. I was Queen of the Fad Diets. I’ve tried probably every single one out there. From age 17 to age 22, I constantly lost and gained the same 30 pounds. (I thought 170 was my forever low weight.) Once I finally let go of seeking the ‘quick fix’ everything seemed to fall in place. It sucks to hear it, but there’s really no quick fix. You’ve gotta commit. But it is so worth it. Get over that first hump and I promise, you will question why you haven’t tried to be truly healthy all along. Best of luck in all your healthy journeys! <3
