Progress photos: May 1 to July 12, 2014
HW: 172 lb.
SW: 149 lb.
CW: 136 lb.
GW: 129 lb.
UGW: 123.5 lb. or really toned, whichever comes first!
Clean eating most of the time, cardio by hiking outside and some at home strength training. No gyms.
My tummy and inner thighs are definitely the stubborn areas for me (aren’t they for so many? lol), but I know if I just keep going, I’ll get there. The Tumblr community has definitely helped keep me motivated!
I’ve had “Reach my goal weight of 130 lb.” as one of my New Years resolutions for YEARS now. I’m so close! This is the year I’m going to achieve it!
8 weeks of working out, (see my “personal” page for the exact workout schedule) eating clean, and loving this new healthy lifestyle!!!
I have not completed my journey, but wanted to share my progress so far since I am really proud of my accomplishments!! please feel free to message me. I love meeting fellow fitblrs :)
This is my weight loss progression so far from behind! In January 2013 I weighed 75kg (~165lbs) and dropped down to about 60kg (~132lbs) by September 2013 just by watching what I ate and walking more and working more. Fast foward to June 2014 and I’m now about 62kg (~136lbs).
I’ve had issues with my weight since I was about ten years old. Since then I’ve been through a rollercoaster of starving, binging, purging, diet pills, just not caring and eating crap, eating well and exercising, then overexercising, only to repeat the cycle over and over. Eight years later the unhealthy habits never got me anything except a very negative body image that fed into my depression and social anxiety which I struggled with for a long time. By the end of high school in 2012 I decided to start respecting my body by kicking all those nasty habits and adopting a vegan lifestyle.
I’m almost 19 now and my mindset has completely changed. I’m a much more confident and positive person and I’ve felt my desire to be skinny change into my desire to be healthy and strong. I always felt my best in those brief periods when I would do what’s best for my body by eating well and exercising without taking it to the extreme.
So now it’s finally time to get my ass into shape and lose those last 10kg or so and get some muscle! I decided making a tumblr would help for the community and motivation. I’m new so if you wanna check out my blog and motivate each other then hit me up! :)

The pictures on the left were taken in September 2012 whilst I was on holiday. Before this point I had had serious issues with my relationship with food. I would go through phases of rapidly losing a stone in a matter of weeks then every time I would gain it back, and more. The before photos show me at the highest weight I ever reached and the point where I decided that what I was doing to my body was wrong. After that I did very little to lose weight over the following year, I did stop being so restrictive though and naturally dropped around 7lbs.
After still realising that I had an unhealthy lifestyle and was damaging my body in September 2013 I got a gym membership and started seeing a personal trainer. Since then she has opened my eyes to a whole new type of lifestyle, I now love to train 3-5 times a week and eating clean. Yes, I still eat a few too many things that aren’t as nutritious as they could be but I don’t beat myself up about these things, I am making this change for life and it is not some sort of fad diet.
So this brings us to the photos on the right, taken June 2014. I have lost 35lbs at this point and even though I still have things to work on and I have some hang ups that will take a lot longer to change my mindset about, I am on the right path. Sometimes I forget that but, looking at the contrast in these holiday photos it reminds me that I have come a very long way and that I can still go even further with enough hard work and perseverance.
Check out www.lovesweatfitness.tumblr.com I have lost 40 lbs from 160lbs to 120lbs doing it the healthy way! I am now a personal trainer and fitness blogger :) I love sharing all the tips and plans that worked for me to help others get and stay fit!

I started my weight loss and happiness journey on March 31st. I weighed 171 and I felt miserable. I currently weigh 143. (I’m 5’8”)
5’7 // 150s to <130 lbs
not a huge difference but i was unhappy before and had unhealthy habits. this was done through intuitive vegan eating, minimal exercise (just trying to stay active), and no dieting/restricting. i feel a lot better now. :)
One year later.
Working on that six pack!!! :)
