Welp you guys asked for a 100lb progress pic so here it is my little munchkins
Unfortunately the lighting is not the same between the two photos (although in retrospect, I’m thankful, because I really don’t think I would’ve wanted a photo of myself “before” in the harsher lighting) (but same duvet in the background holla)
It’s been a long time since I’ve looked at my before photos without clothes on. I can’t really comprehend how massive the changes are. Look at my calves! Look at my forearms! My knees!
But more than that… I remember being that person on the left. Extremely uncomfortable in public, closed off, puffed walking up any flight of stairs, defensive, lonely and unhealthy. It was never just about the weight… it was about claiming my life back, because I wasn’t living the one I ever imagined for myself.
I just want everyone who sees this through the reblogs (even those who don’t know or follow me) to know that I never thought this could happen. I never thought I’d finally be this girl. And if you’re struggling, if you’re stuck in that cycle of starting and giving up diets, if you’re feeling like there’s no hope… there ALWAYS is. Always. Find some trustworthy sources of good info, stop dieting, stop punishing yourself with restriction and exercise, and start living the life of the person you want to become.
I’m going to remember this photo on the tough days, the days when I feel like I still have so much more to do. Because I do, that’s the fun part, but it’s important to remember how far we have come as well.
As I said recently… you’ve all joined me on this journey from ~obese to regular~… now you get to stay by my side for the ~regular to fit~ ‘cause I’m not stopping here my darlings.
