Transformation in 2 months!!
Healthy eating, excersing and SQUATS!! :)
My name is Emily. I am 17 years old and I have lost 62 lbs and My journey started on Feb. 25th, 2013, but after a 2 month rut of no weight loss I’m currently down 5 lbs from my rut at 147.
I stand 5’7 ft tall and I’m currently 143 lbs and I want to get down to my UGW of 130. So far since I’ve got my tumblr I have got my motivation to get back at it. I’ve lost my weight by running and clean eating and weight training.
I recently was able to compare my weight and body fat measurements at school cause we take a yearly measurement.. Last year I weighed 205 and was 47% body fat. When I took my measurements this year I was 20% and 143. My goal is to get to the 16% range and be the fittest of my life..
I’m on tumblr to find more support and insparation by other fitblrs! I have yet to make a tumblr friend either :(.. So Follow me, Message me and ask me questions.

I went through my old laptop today to find a file and I came across my wedding pictures and asked myself, “who the heck is that?” I then went into the guest bedroom closest where my wedding dress hung and tried it on. What a hit of self motivation!

It took me 7 months to be where i am right now, I wish i wouldn’t have not bought that dress that I wanted, & not prevented myself form enjoying at that nice restaurant. ENJOY yourself. But in doing so don’t forget what your aiming for. ~ Good-luck on your journey.
Current Weight: 240lbs
Goal Weight: 195lbs
(And I want muscle mass. And a million bucks…but one of these are realistically attainable)
So I set out on a long and challenging journey to become fit. I consulted a lot with local fitness gods and goddesses. I knew everyone would have their owndo’s and don’ts but I listened to what they all had to say and try to fit what I could in my lifestyle. My main focus was on food.
Let’s face the facts here. I like food. I love food. The tastes, the aroma. The art. And the more I love something, the more invested I became into that subject. Lol. And let me tell you, I was VERY invested in food. So that was the first thing to put on a leash. I dropped the 2 or 3 impulsive dishes a meal time to one. Then I portioned those single meal dishes to a more befitting amount.
And I drank just water. Water water water. If bathrooms had frequent flyer miles…I could fly to Guatemala once a year.
Then I started do small things from home, like walking. And attempt-to-running (cus I hate running). Which really meant I walked until I was alone on the canal trail I would go on, then when the coast was clear…I’d jog. Then wheeze, cus my body isnt use to running. Then when a more fit person would run by I would yellow belly back to walking like I was “taking a breather from my awesome and fit manly run”. I rule!
I was told by someone very smart, “Tim. Im not going to tell you what to do. Do you know why? Everyone has their own lifestyle. Their own busy days. Their own priorities. There is no one way of losing weight. What works for me may not efficiently work for you. So my challenge to you is, if you really want to lose weight, read up on healthy living. Find guys (or girls) who were your size (online and in person) and see what they did to shed those pounds. Take what you can make work and do it. As long as you are not hurting your body and mind, there is no one way of losing weight.”
Smartest advice I ever got.
