It took me 3 years and a lot of nerves ;)
Call me B. Over the course of a year I went from tipping the scales at almost 300lbs to losing WELL over 100lbs. I’m a fairly tall girl at 5’9 but still have a ways to go. The turning point was learning I had an Iron and B12 deficiency as well as a health issue which triggered some hormone imbalances. As soon as treatments started my energy level returned to that of a healthy 26 year old…but I was stuck in an overweight body. So my sister and I made sweeping lifestyle changes. We started by following The Fast Metabolism Diet and lost the first 20 lbs in a month with just changing our diet alone. No exercise at all that first month. From that point on we just studied more about nutrition and I started incorporating a lot of exercise into my schedule. It’s really pretty simple. Eat clean and exercise regularly and YOU. WILL. SEE. RESULTS!
Been on and off the “wagon” but started getting more serious recently. I’ve created this blog to help keep me accountable. Please follow it! :)
I’m 16 years old and this is my life struggle. I decided to lose weight one year ago, and I am NOT saying being fat is not okay. I personally was pushed to the point that it was impossible to be okay with how I looked. I’m ashamed to even admit that any of these pictures were me but as much as I’ve changed myself physically, I will emotionally always be this girl at heart. This fat girl. For the majority of my life I have struggled with my self esteem and being overweight, I was always considered obese, the only stores I could ever shop in were plus sized, I never fit into anything I wanted, and I’ve first handedly witness how terrible people can treat you when you’re not attractive. I was bullied for a huge part of my life, no one ever bothered to look twice at me and when they did, it was to laugh at me. I was spit at and had garbage thrown at me and to this day it is implanted in my mind the inhumane treatment I was given for being “fat.” I envied people with beautiful bodies, that could shop in stores and feel confident with the way that they looked. I was always given the “if you were skinny you could..” line so many times that there was nothing I desired more than to look at myself and feel skinny. I kept eating because as much as I was laughed at, I could go home and pick up something greasy or fattening and not be disappointed. I continued eating to fill a void in myself that had been there for so long, this loneliness that had consumed me from never being accepted by anyone. I had no friends, I sat by myself every single day and for so long sat on the sidelines and was invisible. I wanted to know how it felt for a boy to look at me, to feel my pants zip in the size I was content in, to hear someone say to me, “I love you, and I’m proud of you” I was forced to grow up with the belief that the way that I looked was not socially acceptable. One morning I woke up with the strength to change the amount of hate I had formed towards myself, to better my health, my self esteem and my emotional stability. It’s taken me an extremely long time to realize that every morning you must do things for yourself, not to feel socially accepted or loved by anyone else, not to fit into a size smaller, and not to impress anyone else. I have completely earned what I’ve done on my own. I do not have the most beautiful body, I’m extremely far from content with myself but I have recognized the amount of pain that I’ve put into losing weight. Losing weight has helped me become this person that I’ve always been deep down, but was always too ashamed to be to everyone else. I was trapped under so many layers of fat and embarrassment that I was always too scared to be who I was, in fear of the humiliation I already faced everyday. I can promise anyone that’s dealt with what I’ve dealt with that the people who laugh at you now, will be wishing you would give them the time of day. Love those who love you regardless of if you’re an 80 pound stick or 600 pounds and can’t see your feet! I am not what I have done, I am what I have overcome.
The top right corner is me at 140. The rest I’m around 120 probably 122lbs.
The most weight I have ever been is 190, I have deleted all of those pictures. I never realized how over weight I really was. Nobody really told me anything. To be honest I thought I was just fine. But the reality is you go on to the BMI calculator and it will tell you you’re over weight. I looked at myself in the mirror and thought I was skinny even. I guess i was lying to myself and didnt want to face the truth. I started looking at other girls, then myself and realized I wasnt happy. I started realizing the truth. I wasnt the weight I wanted to be. I was very hard on myself, i never exercised I barley ate. I did eat I did not starve myself, but I did anything I possibly could do to loose weight. I know it was not the best way but I did it. I felt there was no other way. I ate junk food a lot too though but then settled down. It was an interesting and different way of loosing weight, but I got it done. I just never knew. I dont know how I became to think i was even skinny at 190, I kept telling myself I like being curvy, but I was too curvy. I kept telling myself I looked good for my character, but once I started loosing pounds… I realized that was not what I wanted. Now I am 125, Ive been struggling going back and forth between 3 pounds untill I hit 120. But I can do it. I already lost 70 lol. I have no idea how it happened. It just did. Im proof that if you put your mind to it, it may be difficult, but its all about your mind set. If you dont make it seem hard, it wont be. And before you know it, your at your goal. Its just strange to me how nobody said a word. You gotta do things on your own sometimes. Idk guys im just happy i did it, you can do it too, I promise :)

I believe in a happy and healthy lifestyle, including a balanced life, diet and regular exercise.
Same shirt! Couldn’t wear the same pants obviously haha!! Almost a years difference in between. About 55 pound lost. It’s not about the number on the scale though, I truly feel happy in my own skin now, even if there is a little extra of it in some places haha . I do T-25 workouts, cardio, weight lifting but I also have a 80/20 diet, no restrictions, lots of fruits and veggies. @watchnthescalegodown
