The beginning of Graduate school in 2012 versus the end of Graduate school in 2014. I did some work.
(230lbs vs 185lbs, I’m 5’7”)
If youre on a weightloss/fit journey take lots of pics. Ive been fighting depression from other unfortunate events…this is usually how i get deterred from my goal. I woke up late and missed my morning work out but assured myself id either do it tonight or tomorrow morning and get back on schedule one day off…I took pics today, and i was unhappy with my stomach. But…i said surely theres been progress since the 1st day. Its day 23. So i went through my pics and made storybooks of each 3 angles. And i noticed I lost back fat, my thighs are shrinking and my butt got higher. Not super noticeable from a couple pics but a few in succession helped me see the changes. Once my kiddo is down im back on my workout. Im making progress and thats what counts.
Im super excited im so close to day 30 cause i get to post some before and afters…and i can definitely see some progress :)))
8 month transformation, 25 pounds lost. Im not where I want to be but Im happy to see progress. I am no longer embarrassed to look at myself in the mirror. Yes I am embarrassed to post my before picture, but I realize that that is not who I am and I have worked to hard to feel and look better.
I’m 181cm tall and this is my 22kgs difference progress shot!
I still eat carbs!
I started out confused and cutting calories/carbs out big time to get results, I soon realised this wasn’t maintainable and changed my diet to a clean and balanced one and started moderate exercise, until I built up my fitness enough to start exercising properly with a personal trainer! Im now a personal trainer myself and study health & nutrition at uni.
