She says: ‘Today I am 276 pounds lighter, 14 jean sizes smaller, and no longer need a wheelchair, walker, or cane to get around. My medication requirements have been reduced dramatically, and I no longer live in constant, physical and emotional pain. I am a brand new person, have so much energy, and am now a participant in life, rather than just watching it pass me by.’

Weight loss method: Healthy eating, running & strength training
Height: 5′ 5″
She says: ‘I am 5’5 and 138 pounds. After stepping down from a 5 year career as a competitive gymnast I began gaining weight significantly. I was so used to working out 25 hours a week and eating healthy because of the demands my sport put on me that I didn’t even think about the amount I was eating and the quality of it until I realized how over weight I had become.
I got back in to a healthy routine of running, lifting weights and eating healthy just like I had when I was a gymnast but in a way that was much better for my mind and body. Still trying my best to get my body in to the best shape possible and keep it that way but it’s amazing to see just how far I’ve come the healthy way.
The photo on the left was at the very beginning of my weight loss journey and the one on the right is me today. My body is more toned and strong and although you may not be able to see much of a difference, I feel a hundred times healthier today than I ever have before. I hope that I can continue to inspire people and help them lose weight and strengthen their bodies in healthy ways. ’
She says: ‘I didn’t tell anyone I was dieting and I admit that these days were difficult: I spent all the time thinking only of numbers and caloric values. But honestly? I would do it all again, over and over and over and over.’

~ Nelly, 24 ~
Time taken: 2.5 years
She says: ‘For people that have doubts that healthy living and exercise works, well… I hope this gives you a little piece of mind. That was me in the blue about 2 and a half years ago. I was at my heaviest in that picture and the weight gain was all within 4 months. I spent days and nights eating donuts, not sleeping, drinking lattes and studying. My weight was about 138 pounds. And going from 112 to 138 is a lot in 4 months. The weight went to my arms, stomach and ass and boobs and thighs and face. GROSS. I was so embarrassed when my boyfriend lifted me and said I was the heaviest girl he had ever dated. The very next day I took my ass to the gym and decided I would never be that heavy again.
The first year was spent on doing the wrong things… I still ate crap but tried to burn it off with the gym. So in the end I didn’t see results. I even tried diet pills and they did not work. Fast forward to 2012. Within the last 8 months I’ve changed my eating and started weights and this is what I look like today: picture of me in purple dress. I’m strong, healthy and confident. So yes, a weight loss journey is long and hard but it’s worth it!!!’
Anonymous, age 20, lost almost 15 pounds in 3 months by eating more healthily and working out.
She says: ’I literally just started running 5 days a week, stopped drinking alcohol every night, stopped drinking soda 3-5 times a day, started taking the stairs, and started being conscientious of what I was eating (e.g white bread vs. whole grain). I stopped eating out of boredom and started working out. It’s as simple as that.’
