Ok so, since I’m just not in a good mood, and it’s midnight so technically it’s already Tuesday, I really need to cheer myself up. So here, progress for transformation tuesday.

Do I have officially lost 50 lbs!!!!
This has taken me over a year of working out at least 3times a week and watching what I eat. Looking back I am so thankful for all the hard work I put in that got me this far and I look forward to seeing what I am capable of. For inspiration and to follow me on my journey follow my blog ready-set-roll!
Face progress pictures are always the most amazing to me for some reason. Maybe because I look and feel like a completely new person in the new healthy body that I now have. Deciding to get healthy was the best decision I ever made.
I’ve been working so hard for so long and it’s been an incredible journey, 45 pounds down and striving for health every day :)
Hi! My name is Lara, 17 from England :)
Height: 5,9 1/2
Before weight: 189 lbs
During weight: 169 lbs
Year apart, confidence gained and weight lost! Honestly if i can do it anyone can.. If you want it bad enough, you WILL do it! Far from finished but happy with the journey i’m on :)
I’m not proud of many things. but yeah this is one!
So this morning when I got on the scale and it said 140.2 - I was disappointed I did not officially meet my first goal weight of “140” - then later today while working I thought “wait a second. what?!” I think it’s stupid if I’m going to think that any progress photo of me at 140.0 is going to look any different than one at 140.2. I mean - geez guys, can you see that extra .2 lb on the right or what? Also, it’s not like I’m going to maintain a constant .0 when I do meet my goal weights for the rest of my life, haha.
Anyway, so I made one of those fancy collages, and hurrah! 30 weeks, and a lot of hard work. Time passed like a blur, I can’t even believe I made it this far. I’m not quite where I’d like to be, and I think my biggest regret right now is taking such crap first photos of myself at my highest weight. I think it’s because i felt so horrible about myself right then, I had very low body love to give. I only really took that one.
WW helped me with portion control, and helped me gear my foods towards clean eating. It also helped me with recipe ideas, gosh I needed that help! Exercise consisted of 30 Day Shred, various 5k Runner apps, and a weekly hot yoga / power yoga class. I still fit in meals and indulgences during my weeks even when I was seriously dedicated - a drink here or there on the weekends never stopped me.
I think the best attitude I have that helps me with this is knowing that I’m here to reach a healthy lifestyle, and my eating and my fitness are part of that. I want to maintain these things for the rest of my life. So whenever I felt like I was going to be guilty for indulging, I reminded myself that eventually, I would reach my goal, and that I have the rest of my entire life to reach that goal. Being miserable in the “present” is no good - you’ve got to love yourself during, as well. Must stop rambling. Anyway, my thanks to the fitblr/WW community for all your help, advice, recipes, and common sense. Stay motivated my friends, you got this!
"In my body is a good place to be because functionally I know at the end if the day it is the only home I’ve ever had, and it’s the only home I ever will have. So no matter how much I argue with it, at the end of the day I have to treat it like my home." - Meredith Graves
230lbs —> 140
Working on love my body at every stage. Instead of fighting against it I want to make it my ally and fight together to make it the best and happiest it can be.
