I am a previous submitter, some of you may recognize me from before—-I’m Mallory. 23 years old.
I decided that weighing 190 pounds at 5’3 wasn’t the best way to live. It’s no way to enjoy life. The left photo is a very covered-up and self-conscious me. I hid under that fleece jacket this past February. The jeans I had on were a 14. My face was so round that I was starting to grow a second chin. 
March really started my journey. I added running and a cleaner diet. I walked on my breaks at work. I took every opportunity to get outside. Injuries happened, but I kept going. I have been incorporating yoga lately.
The right photo is last week. I’m in a small t shirt and medium yoga pants. I don’t have as round of a face! I am most happy in exercise clothing now.
Today I was at 164 lbs. Yea, I have a lot more to do, but I’m not stopping. Ran my fastest 5k ever this week, and decided it was time for another post. Six months in to my journey and 26 pounds down. Two pant sizes. If I can do it, you can too.
Thanks to everyone brave enough to post on here too! You inspire me.

Before and during!
In the first picture I weighed in at 147.5kg on my 18th birthday and was unhappy with life and in a deep dark place. I didn’t start to lose weight at that stage either. I kept on gaining and gaining until one day I woke up and saw myself in the mirror for what I really looked like. I was shocked and upset with myself for letting myself go and getting myself to this stage, morbidly obese. I decided to get my crap together, by telling my family and friends what I was doing and they supported me along the way. I went on walks with mum a few times a week and joined a gym. At first it was a real struggle going for walks with mum because I couldn’t keep up with her and got out of breathe so easily but I stayed consistent and before I knew it I was keeping up with her and soon, she couldn’t keep up to me. It’s now going on over two years later and these days I hover around 77-79kg and my weight isn’t such a priority for me. These days my focus is on my fitness. For someone who used to be so overweight and unfit. I now enjoy going for long walks/runs just because I feel like it. (up to 34km to date) and doing strength training at the gym and focusing on non scale victories. 
I want for those of you who are reading this and want to make a change, whether it be about your weight, your fitness, your career or something in your life.. that if you set your mind to something it is achievable!

First photo is from September of my senior year of high school (toga day if ya can’t tell haha), and the second is from September of my sophomore year of college (aka today lol). The first picture was the heaviest I’ve ever been, I think I weighed about 150 lbs?? If not a little more. And the second is me around 115, but more importantly it is me in the healthiest, best shape I’ve ever been in my entire life! I was always a chubby kid, and while I did thin out early middle/high school, bad eating habits + no exercise mixed with anxiety & depression certainly didn’t help matters!! However exercise & healthy eating have transformed my life!! I am soo much happier not only with my body but also with my mind :) it’s been a long journey, and not always a fun one I’ll admit!! But it was definitely one I am so happy that I was & am continuing on with!!

This is from a size 24 to a size 18. The past few months i haven’t made much progress but ive gotten back on track and am feeling better than before. This is to remind myself and others that it’s worth it and not to give up.

i’ve never even made any progress pictures before so here it goes. i lost 15 kgs during the summer three years ago then I just kept struggling and maintaining the weight as it is. now i’m finally moving again towards my goals & healthier self. all i can say is — you really don’t have to be the most active person to lose weight. watching my eating habits pretty much did the whole work for me.

This is me after the 30 day shred. I have spaced it out over 5 weeks and I am feeling really good.
All you need is half an hour a few times a week - you can commit to that!
In the first picture I was about 150 lbs (I am 5 ft 2)
and in the second I am around 143 lbs? I am not sure.
I eat around 1200-1500 calories a day and exercise 3-6 times a week, walking my dog every day for 30 minutes.
I want to be bikini ready this Summer!

This picture is one of the hardest ones I’ve ever posted. My problem area has always been my lower stomach – to the point where one of the roughest memories of my life is standing in a movie theater waiting to go into a row and hearing the boys in front of me loudly call out “look at the fupa on that one” and dissolved into hysterical laughter. I sat in the seat with tears streaming down my cheeks, waiting for the lights to turn off.  I look back at that picture and it’s so easy to still feel shame for that girl even with a reminder of the woman I currently am right next to it.
My best friend bought me this skirt for my 27th birthday(just a few weeks ago…!) and I blushingly shuffled away from it. I hid it deep in my closet, told her I loved it and knew in my heart that I couldn’t wear something so revealing of the “worst” part of  me. But as best friends often do, she knew what was really going on in my head. She insisted I take it out, put it on and wear it to my job (in fashion). This remains to be one of the scariest and most courageous things I’ve ever done in my weight loss —just conquering my own personal little battle. Everyone has little weaknesses that are hard to let go of, regardless of pounds lost and this “fupa” has been mine. But then I put it on and I got the chance to see myself anew in it.
I saw the woman I am, with no shame at all. Let those boys in that movie theater call me whatever they want. I put that skirt on and reminded myself of something I’ve known somewhere all along – I am beautiful, no matter what shape, size, or skirt I’m in. Never let anyone or anything convince you different. Invest in you, trust your journey, push your limits, and always win today.
