For a while I felt like I wasn’t making much back progress… Then I took a look at where I was just four months ago… Who am I kidding 😂
This is my 65 lbs weight loss transformation.
My “after” photos on my blog were from June 2013, so I thought it was time to update them. Building muscle/decreasing body fat has been a longer, more difficult journey for me physically, whereas losing the first 50 lbs (which I did from Dec ‘11-Dec ‘12) was mentally/emotionally one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life.
Over the last nearly 2 years, I’ve lost 6” from my bust, 11” from my waist, and 8” from my hips. Believe me when I say if I can do it, anyone can. I was watching “Extreme Weight Loss” earlier and I heard Chris Powell say something I think is pretty powerful, so I will leave you with that: “Ordinary people don’t do this stuff, extraordinary people do.”

I can’t stress it enough:
If you don’t like what you see Everytime you look in the mirror, stop wasting time complaining about it, and work to change it.. life is too short to keep pushing it out of your list of priorities.. love yourself enough to change ..
Formerly obese and unhappy, one day I decided I’d had enough. I’ve lost 160 lbs, become a 2x marathoner, triathlete, & I’m currently training for a 50 mile ultra marathon this August.
Getting happier & stronger each and every day.
It’s never too late to change your story.
The difference between these photos is one year and about 120 pounds.

Can’t believe these photos are exactly a year apart. I can’t help but feel so proud of myself :)
