These 2 photos are a year apart. First photo was taken last year (2013, September). I remember that day. I needed to buy a jacket that day. I remember basically crying in the changing rooms because I couldn’t really find anything that would fit me and still look decent. I was so miserable. I was really depressed because of my weight, how I looked. I basically had no hope left. Second photo was taken 2 days ago. As you can see, I lost weight, but the most important thing - I have gained my life back. Now I can smile, enjoy my life and shopping became so fun for me now, I’m not crying in the changing rooms anymore! Give it time, have faith, have hope. I didn’t give up, and I don’t want YOU to give up. It’s possible, everything’s possible! :) End of my little cheesy story, have a nice day! hehe *english is not my first language*
First photo: about 90-94kg
Second photo: 71kg
Before pic was around 2-3 years ago but i didn’t really start loosing weight until this year. I first went on a diet when i was 13 (how awful is that?!) and realised i was heavier than my friends. I had no clue what i was doing and the thrill of loosing weight made me eat less and less until i remember thinking a good day was eating 300 cals. I was grumpy all the time and hated my life ( i also refused to exercise, thinking i didn’t want to be muscly)
As soon as i stopped eating like this i put all the weight back on and more! Flash forward to the start of this year, i was fed up, hated myself, and knew i needed to change. I fell in love with running and then incorporated weights. I work out 5 times a week, 2 days i do a long cardio and weights sesh at the gym, 2 days i go running or do 30 mins of hiit and 1 day i have a body attack class (its brutal) at school (yes its possible to loose weight at school, i even go to a boarding school!!). I net 1400 kcals a day and ALWAYS eat back my exercise calories.
Ive gained weight recently and was disheartened, but i realise I’ve just put on muscle, ladies don’t be afraid to weight lift it does wonders for bums and tums ;) If you think you’re going to binge, remind yourselves of how great being healthy makes you feel, and remember that you control your body, your animal impulses don’t control you, you do! Just say no and have some green tea! If you slip up, don’t worry, you’re only human, just keep pushing forwards and never give up.
