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.
Me and Zac Efron (lol) a few years ago compared to today. 5’6”, 240 before, 155 currently; over about a year and a half. Lots of volleyball, running, lifting, and better eating!

No diets, no fads, no gimmicks! After battling my weight for 20 years, lost 115 lbs so far from a plant-based diet (now intuitive, clean eating), and exercise! My tip for success: dedication over motivation - motivation is fleeting, dedication lasts a lifetime.
Balance is important no matter what your goals are. I workout 6x a week primarily lifting weights because I love it, I eat natural, wholefoods the majority of the time because they make my body feel great, and I have the occasional beer (or 6) at Dave Matthews Band concerts because life is short but sweet for certain. Consistently making healthy choices is important, but a healthy lifestyle shouldn’t get in the way of enjoying your life, so don’t eat things you absolutely hate just because they’re healthy, don’t do workouts that just leave you feeling miserable, find the things that you truly enjoy and create a healthy balanced lifestyle that works for you!
