Working out, especially in the beginning, is a huge pain in the bum. Weight loss seems even more impossible when you see the crapton of things that you’ll have to adjust to, such as a strict diet, a consistent workout, and the discipline to say “HELL NAW” to anything unhealthy.
However, as these people proved, hard work DOES pay off… and it also makes you look amazing AF.
1. “I’m still shocked that I actually have a neck”
2. Strive to be a healthy and better you
Reading through some old journal entries really made me realize my worth. I used to be so depressed and so suicidal because of the way people used to talk about me and treat me because of my weight. I know so many people go through the same thing and it sucks. I remember laying in bed at night almost every day crying because I didn’t want to live anymore. To some people this might look like two different girls but I’m still the same girl in the first picture as I am in the second picture, just a little less naïve. Yet most still look at both pictures and judge them separately even though it’s the same girl. Our society is corrupt and it’s sad. I want to let every single person reading this now that you’re beautiful no matter the size, you should strive to be healthy and be a better you. But don’t let other people cloud your judgment on how incredible you are big or small
3. Hard work makes the dream work
4. In just 1 year, she went from being at her unhealthiest to modeling at her city’s fashion week
5. Is this… is this even the same person? (2 years)
5. This is just too adorbs
#throwbackthursday to 485lbs & @discoveringdanny proposing to me at sunset on Clearwater Beach. He never saw me as my size, asked me to change, or made me feel as anything other than beautiful. He treated me the same way at 485lbs that he does at 182lbs. Love doesn't have a size or weight limit. He saw the person I was on the inside and supported me while I made that person on the side match my outside. Surround yourself with those who lift you higher and see the greatness in you even when you dont see it yourself! ❤ #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fatgirlfedupdietbet #love #florida #clearwaterbeach #sunset #fitspire #fitcouple #relationshipgoals #couplegoals #fattofit #obesetobeast #beastmode #fitfam #fitspo #inspire #motivation #fitnessmotivation #gym #wedding #engagement #transform #fitspo #diet #extremeweightloss #transformation

8. Damn girl (2 years, 100 lb lost)
9. Is it just me, or does he look a lot younger now?
10. Just keep at it gurl!
you guys, I am in a haze of NyQuil and pulled myself out of my personal flu cave to write this so if it doesn't make total sense please bear with me 💘. — there have been many times on this journey where I've felt like I lost my motivation, or didn't really see what I was working so hard for anymore. there have been weeks, even a span of like 3 months where I kept going back and forth with the same few pounds because I just didn't have it in me to break that cycle and tackle my real issues. — but, it's moments like this where I'm reminded of why I'm doing this. progress is why I'm doing this, not perfection, not for the "perfect" body, just to feel and be better than I was before. I'm doing this for the girl on the left who didn't see the value in her life, didn't feel worthy of change, of love, of really anything. she didn't believe in much but, she did believe in herself enough to make a change. — reminding yourself of where you started, no matter how far you've come, is always the best motivation–at least for me! let your own hard work and small victories motivate you to keep pushing forward! and I haven't said this in a while but, I feel like I need to: we are all worthy of change, love, happiness, and every other positive thing that comes our way. our past experiences don't define us, we grow from them and move forward. don't let yourself forget that! / #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlosssupport #weightlossdiary #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #fitnessgoals #transformationtuesday #transformation
