As for now I am just simply fabulous. (that a way to be self centered) ;D Anyway I am starting a 6 month workout challenge. I am hoping that if I pour out my heart and soul on this blog it will allow me to get up and put my words into action. So I am calling out all my fatties out there, lets do this to make a postive change! OOHHH LETS DO IT!!
I’m Nicole, 5’4, and my highest weight was 208lbs. I now weigh 185lbs.
I’m proud of myself for getting this far, although I’ve not been working as hard as I could be, so it’s time to step it up a gear.
I feel I’ve still got about 60lbs to lose but who knows when I get there? I’ve realised that you have to have more than being thin as your motivation throughout this - it’s really exciting to see yourself reach fitness goals and this can often be even more rewarding than seeing the scale go down!
I seem to hit a lot of plateaus lately and it’s extremely frustrating but I’m NEVER giving up. Remember to fall in love with yourself at any weight, I’m covered in stretch marks and sometimes it gets me down but then I remember what I love about myself!
Good luck everyone on becoming super healthy and fit!
can we all just stop for a second and admire this beauty right here
She looks Sudanese.
OMG can I just have skin as flawless and dark as hers?
I think she’s Ghanaian. Don’t remember the name though, I think it’s Kate something.

UNF oh my god.
May progress photo <3 a little late but better late than never! (:
This is after a year and a half of exercising and eating a moderately clean diet. I don’t eat fast food and haven’t in over a year and a half, I don’t drink soda. I do still occasionally eat at restaurants or have take out. I love to exercise, I’m currently doing 30 Day Shred, I also love to run, Zumba and other exercise dvds. I’m still actively trying to lose the baby weight, I gained over 100 lbs during my high risk pregnancy with Eclampsia and Oligo. I was on bed rest for the majority of my pregnancy and afterwards I thought I would be able to get rid of it with breastfeeding and eating healthier. After not seeing much progress I had to be honest with myself and change my lazy lifestyle and completely cut out fast food.
I’m currently on my longest plateau I’ve had since starting my journey but I haven’t lost motivation, I still have goals I aim to reach and I love to help people who are just starting out or may be in my old shoes. It’s not easy but you can do it! Looking back I remember sitting on my couch crying because I didn’t recognize the person I let myself become , I was so overweight and unhealthy. I felt it would be impossible to lose the weight and now… I don’t recognize the person in the left photo. I will never be that person again. I am stronger and more determined than I ever thought I could be. I love myself so much more now than I did two years ago.
