I was chubby in high school and managed to keep my chubby figure throughout college on a vegetarian diet. A belly has plagued me all of my life. I started analyzing my eating habits several months ago and decided to make the transition to eating meat and whole foods.
By no means am I strict with myself, but I am reasonable.
In the first picture, I am around 160 lbs. I weigh 140 in the second row. They were taken roughly four months apart. I have yet to lose any real inches off of my bust and hips, but I am elated with an hourglass figure. I haven't seen 140 since the 8th grade despite avoiding all fast food, monitoring everything I consumed and exercising since then.
I don't have a goal weight in mind, but I can't wait to see the changes unfold in the next few months. I will post an update after conquering lifting heavy things in addition to my yoga practice.
This forum has been such a great inspiration and motivator. Seriously, I thank all of you for sharing your journey and the truth!
