Big Weightlosssss! :: Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Ok... Not going to lie, while I was in college I had a weight problem. My problem was, I saw it, I ate it. Because of this, I didn't really take that much care with my appearance and I went from an athletic sized 3 to a size 13.

Yes, that is me.
In my opinion, I was shaped very much like Taz. Which is hilarious, because LOOK, I'm standing right next to him!

Over the last couple of years, I've been working to fix this problem and have come a long way from where I was 4 years ago.
Since that time, I've lost over 40 pounds (18kg) (ヾ(´・ω・`) . I still plan on losing about 10 more pounds (Hopefully before my trip back to Japan).

10 more lbs is totally do-able. Especially since I've been dropping weight steadily recently.

I now take care of myself a lot better than I ever did, and because of that, my self-esteem has healed.

Me, probably about 20 lbs heavier than I am now vs. Now.

And my face is like a new person's face!

Nothing was photoshoped at all aside from the resizing and putting together of the images just in case someone was wondering. I put them up just how my camera took them :)

It's just so crazy how much can change in one year.

It took me about a year of going back and forth to lose the extra 20 pounds I had. And, I figure I have a couple more months to go before I'm down to the weight I want to be.
I wanted to give up so many times, but I got my butt up and stopped eating bad foods.

I just want to say to everyone that has struggled with their weight, it takes time, but it is totally do-able. Don't be suckered into the quick fixes out there. THEY DO NOT WORK. Sometimes they do help you lose weight, but they hurt your body in so many more ways, that it isn't worth it.
Slow and steady, with exercise and good diet. That's the trick to losing weight and keeping it off!

I've read your blog for a few months now, and I must say, I love it. You're very down to earth and open about who you are, it's refreshing. (There are so many bloggers who are not, in the Gal fashion.) And, this post itself speaks out so much. I can relate to it quite a bit.

I've been struggling with my weight for the last few years, and I've only just been successfully on my way towards my goal. It's inspiring to see that you're working towards your goal with proper diet, rather than many of the unhealthy roads that I've noticed people choose to take. It's very hard to stick to a certain regime of diet and exercise, when there are so many delicious foods in the world that are not good for the mind or body, (I, admittedly, have been lagging, lately.) and so to see your determination has helped me pick my mood back up.

Thank you for making this post, and I wish you good luck! You will definately be able to reach your goal weight in no time! - xx, Magie

 Thank you so much Maggie!

 I'm glad I could so inspire you. I wish you luck, too, in the battle against the bulge! I think if we all band together and encourage one another we'll be able to make our goals. It is so much easier to make it with a support system.
I wanted to let everyone know that I support them! And, that it's possible though not always easy (if you do it right)!
Don't give up!!!

Thanks for your support! <3

Thank you Tina!
I can't believe the difference either. When I came up with the idea of this post, I didn't realize so much had changed! It was a shock even to me!

 It's not sad! Sometimes it's really hard to get up and work the extra pounds off. Believe me I know!
Glad you liked the post <3

You're welcome!

Awh, thank you. Haha, no kidding! It's definately a battle. All well, I'm almost halfway to my goal, now, so there's no going back! :)

That is sooooo' true. I used to go to the gym with a past friend of mine and with each others support we kicked off our weight loss with a whopping ten pounds each those first two weeks, it was intense, but we're both still at it and very close to our goals! (I only have sixteen pounds left, before I reach my second weight goal, which shouldn't be too hard.)

That's very sweet and nice of you! I need to make weight loss post, in hopes of encouraging the (few) people that read my blog, too. :)

Thank you, and don't you, either!

You're more than welcome, dear. <3
