I’m reblogging myself cause this has reached 3000 notes and frankly, that astounds me!
The negative comments always make me sad - “where did her boobs go” (I’m still a D cup, bitch) - “oh she had surgery, see the scar?” (appendectomy…) “ew she looks scrawny now, was definitely better before”
I am not scrawny or too thin, I’m fit and healthy and toned. Before I was overweight, ate a load of shit and was uncomfortable when I looked in the mirror. Now, my thighs and calves are rock hard, I can run 2 miles without getting out of breath and I’m working on developing my abs. Most importantly, I eat a nutritious diet and I love my body. I’m proud of it!
So fuck youuuuuuuuuuu motherfuckers!
I know there is still work to do but this is me, 4 months after the start of my diet…
Before & After: 50 lbs. lost over the course of 2 years. Slow but successful progress; I’ve kept it off for the last 2 years!
I have come so far. I refuse to give up. Even when I’ve had a horrible week, I’m looking at these photos and feeling so much pride for the hard work I’ve put in for the last 8 months, remembering all the nights I spent at the gym until 2am, all the cookies and cakes I said no to. I know I can make it through to see these last 25lbs gone.
My weight loss has recently slowed to a crawl, and I’m completely okay with that. But my mind still struggles to keep up with my body and gets confused because of the transformation that has occurred. My mind still sees/feels the woman in the first photo from time to time, and on those times, instead of tearing myself down or letting my mind alter my attitude towards health, I take a look back and appreciate myself/my body and then all is well.
Before: October 13, 2011 - After: December 13, 2011
What a difference two months makes. The difference is only about 10 pounds but what a difference it makes.
Amazing progress! Shows how numbers don’t mean as much as we think.
Story of my life!
