Someone wanna tell me how this is the same woman in both pics? The “before” has a large red tattoo on her right upper arm; this tattoo would have grown with weight loss, not shrunk away. It could be her (it certainly looks like her and she #$%$ her head to the side the same way), but it could also be a sister.
True inspiration! Congrats to Steph and all her hard work. It is hard to believe she currently wieghs 180 ish. There is no possible way!
She looks fabulous! and quite radiant and healthy.
I wish her all the best to maintain her healthy living.
I was hoping I would read at least one that it was done by hard work. Again, surgery, it is not weight loss. It is surgery. Good for her and I am glad. But report it as it is.
it’s nice to hear from someone who doesnt love their fat body and does something about it instead of telling themselves they are ok when they are morbidly obese.
Okay, I quit smoking a few months back. I eat approximately 300-350 cal for breakfast, 100 for a mid morn snack (fruit), 250-300 for lunch. and probably 500 at dinner. I’ve started walking briskly for a mile a day. I gained 12 pounds and I’ve lost NONE of it. Anybody? Oh, I am 5 ‘4″ and while not “obese” I have never weighed this much.
Great Job! you look so much healthier and I bet you get to have fun and do more things with your children, which is what you wanted most. You should be very proud of what you have accomplished.
People who say they can’t lose weight or it’s hard are just lazy people. Anyone can do it. You don’t need a chef. You don’t need a trainer. You need to get off your butt….stop eating three meals in a sitting and work!!
Sounds like she wasn’t hurting financially for all the nip/tucks she ending up having. Imaging the thousands of $$ that was her food bill prior to doing this lifestyle change..
Nice job. What I’ve found is that you have to make exercise as important as having dinner, picking up the kids or sleeping. It has to become a part of your life. The benefits are amazing!!!
Sorry, girl, but your tattoos are so f’n ugly, weight loss doesn’t help. It just makes people want to grab a washcloth and soap and start scrubbing the dirt – uh, tats – off. Ugh.
WAY TO GO!!! You look awesome and more importantly I bet you feel and are far more healthy and happy!! Keep it up, your wonderfully awesome young lady!!
She looks good at 175 pounds but guess her height makes the difference. When I weighed that much I looked like a blimp, but I am 5’6″ and that was about 10 years ago. Now I stay from 120 to 125, because my eating habits have changed, walk a lot and gave up dieting a long time ago.
Where did the tat go on the new body? It’s a wrap around on the arm and should still be showing? So…different people?
BEST way to lose weight: Be younger (20’s or 30’s – like ALL the people in the TV diet ads); (FOR FEMALES: have a baby and then breastfeed.) BEST way to look good (after say: 40-45?): Have good genes; have parents who looked good when THEY were older. OTHERWISE: Face it – you are SCREWED and will end-up fat and ugly like the rest of us!!!
she’s absolutely right about the diet stuff…….i’m in my mid-sixties and lost about 100 lbs over the course of a year, thee years ago…..its still off and i feel decades younger……..smaller portions and exercise……that’s the ‘secret’……..and stay out of fast food joints
If that is really her then how the flip did her tattoos change?
She has one large tattoo on the upper arm, then when she turns skinny it 100% disappears? Then she gets new tattoos? I find this a bit odd…she didn’t have it laser removed did she?
If you look at the before picture there is a large tattoo on her upper right arm , in the after picture the tattoo is not there , we would see the end of end at least it was a large tattoo, but its not there so don’t think it is the same person.
Do what works for you. I’m intermittent fasting. She didn’t. I don’t have to use a food scale and she does. And I sure as heck don’t use a fitbit. But again whatever works for you.
No more than 5 grams of sat fat … you’ll lose weight, don’t even have to exercise, I track mine on MyFitnessPal, which is free.
