Default A Reflection

Today, I picked up a shirt from H&M that was slim fit and a size L (a size I stayed at for a while), I realized that after buying it, the shirt was too big (and its a slim fit!!). I got on the scale at the gym and realized that I weighed 159 lbs, which means I finally reached my goal weight and superseded it by a few lbs too.

Back in 2012, I weighed 250 lbs. I didn't feel comfortable in my own skin, and I couldn't exercise or run or even climb the stairs without losing breath. I made a goal to myself to make it to 160 lbs by 2015, so that I lose weight slowly but it stays off.

Here are some pics:






Now, today, at 159 lbs.





This just goes to show that anyone can do anything if they set their mind to it. I battled depression and an eating disorder while losing this weight. The past year, I've been in college overloading myself in credits, and working 30+ hours a week, while still eating decently and working out when I can. I hope this inspires someone to achieve a goal of theirs.

That's so great! It's amazing to show how we can all still battle through the tough times. Keep it up !

Repeat after me:
My body is not wrong, or ugly, too big or too thin, too pale or too dark, too broken or too strong. It is the vessel of a precious life and that is enough.

Congrats. I used to be like you when I was 9. However, I made a promise to myself to lose weight. I'm now pretty skinny. However, I still need to take care of my body fat. I'm currently at 18% body fat and want to go down to 10%.

Bro, nice one. Seems almost unbelievable when you look at the numbers.
This is what happens when you don't stay off the course of a given goal.
These type of stories motivate people that nothing is impossible.

Dude honestly you look fucking amazing and I'm so proud of you or reaching your goal. Congratulations. I know how difficult it is to battle all of those issues at once but now you've overcome all of it and you have done yourself proud. As for me, I went from a size XL (Summer 2014) -> S (April 2015). It's great losing weight and integrating it so well into lifestyles.

While this post is over half a month old, I really love it and I'm moving it to the Uplifting Stories and Messages section so that it can perhaps inspire some people.

This is a really great thing you've done. Congratulations. It's astonishing what you can do if you commit yourself.
