Howdy! Wanted to share an updated weight loss/health post :) I am now currently 53lbs down and about 6 and 1/2 months in to when I started my healthier life style. I couldn't be happier that I started honestly, looking back I can't believe how far I have come, and if you have any doubts that you can't do whatever goals you may have.. I assure you.. you can! :D :D



I started off at 202lbs when I started my journey. Heaviest I ever was was 213lbs. I am 5'5. I am now 149lbs. First time I have been in this weight range for about 6 years. (I am 22yearsold)



These photos are from approx 190lbs on the left, and approx 160lbs on the right.

(Still have yet to purchase a new bikini, I don't feel quite right in one just yet!)

I have been told I have been loosing my butt.. so recently I have started paying a ton of attention to my butt with crazy amounts of butt work outs :lol: (until I became injured)

Thanks SO much for looking. Feel free to message me with questions and what not :)



I eat primarily clean, with indulgences every now and again. Loads of outdoor cardio, tons of water, at home pilates/zumba, strength training with free weights and balls. :D



P.S- Simply put the Not Safe For Work, just in case, I know I have some skin showing. :P:wink:

Dang... you look amazing. Seriously. And I would not have guessed you were in the 140s, you look TINY. How tall are you? And your LOs are beauties!



Also... not to be a creeper, but do you use anything to track your eating? (I use mfp) I want to try the clean-eating thing but am horrible at it. :oops: I go for easy-on-the-go, even when I'm not on the go :roll:

:oops: Thanks so much girl! Means a lot.



I am 5'5. I have a long torso and short short legs!



I do use MFP. I used it RELIGIOUSLY when I first started, it helped a ton until I got used to my eating habits and what not. I still use it some days :) Best of luck, you can do it!

You look amazing girl! I hope I am able to lose all the weight I gained with my son. I found some old pictures from high school and they depressed me because I was thin.

That's normal girl, make a realistic plan and goal for yourself, I am sure you'll be great! Hardest and most important part is consistency, just stick with it. Best wishes, and thanks so very much! :D
