Hi there, I’m Brittany and I’m 17. I am 5’1.
I used to weigh 240lbs, and now I am 138 and shrinking :)
n the summer of 2010, a blessing in disguise came to me. A severe facial injury left me with a broken jaw and missing teeth, as well as those results leaving me with the inability to chew. It wasn’t healthy a way, but I lost quite a bit of weight from a 3 month liquid diet. However, I realized that it was time to start living right and for myself. I started eating healthy. In November 2010, I joined my school’s wrestling team. I had never wrestled before, let alone done any sort of physical activity. I did not expect for it to become for me what it did. I am now at least half of the size I was at that time, and have lost 100lbs and 10 sizes since then. I am also a reigning provincial champion, award-winning, olympic qualifying wrestler. I also do Jiu Jitsu, MMA and Kung Fu.
I realized that being thin is not important. It doesn’t give you more friends, (if it does - they’re fake and you don’t need them) It doesn’t give you permanent confidence, being HEALTHY is what matters. You feel better, you live better, and you see that your body is an incredible machine. And though I have lost a lot of weight, I have gained so much more.

Here’s one of my latest pictures. I’m down about15 pounds now, just with eating really clean (staying around 1200-1400 cals a day) and exercising 5-6 days a week. It’s taken about 2 months to get me this far, but check out my page if you want to know more! I’ll answer questions any time
Height: 5’ 7”
at the start of my teenage years, i fell into depression and gained a lot of weight. from then on, i constantly battled with myself to lose the weight in unhealthy ways. after realizing that the weight doesn’t stay on, and all in all, i didn’t want to be unhealthy for the rest of my life, i switched it up by eating clean, cardio 5x/week, and strength training!! i drink green tea, take vitamins, and treat my body with the most respect i can :)
it’s all about loving yourself! and i’m going to continue this journey of perfecting my body until the end, because if you keep trying, you can only get better :)
I’ve always been chubby. I remember wearing a women’s US size 12/14 pants when I started the 6th grade. By the end of middle school, I was around 210 lbs. Around this time I started a youth fitness program, lost weight, and then started eating out of boredom as soon as it was done. By my 12th year of high school I was 275 and my highest weight. I had to take a 13th year of school and during this year, while I was planning college, I decided enough was enough. I wanted to go to college and look good! I wanted to come back and have people not recognize me. I started writing down what I ate, actually participating in gym, and cut down on my boredom eating and used a new found love for Korean pop music to replace my emotional eating. When I moved I started walking around campus, fell in love with Walden Farm products, and work out at my apartment’s gym. When I finally moved home at the beginning of 2011 I had lost 65 lbs. I got down to 180 (a size 14, my 6th grade size!) before I went back to my old ways (and my old food choices) and now I am currently maintaining at 210. I am planning on starting Turbo Jam to tone up and hoping to get to my goal weight of 170 by the end of 2012.
3 months progress
The Before photo is a bit old, but I was exactly the same same weight when I started losing in April this year. It’s not a huge difference, but with me being 5’1 it does show and I feel much more comfortable with my body now. I should still lose 2-3 pounds and tone up a bit to reach my ultimate dream body, but regardless, I’m pretty proud of where I am now :)
Due to depression and anxiety my weight used to fluctuate like the weather. Now that i’ve sought help for my issues, I am determined to live a healthy and happy lifestyle.
I’m 5’9, and at my highest I was 205 lbs. I’m currently down to 160, although I’m still working towards my goal weight of 135. But it feels great to finally feel healthy and to see the results of all my hard work!

This is how my progress looks with clothes on.. I guess you can’t see that much of a difference, but I assure you, it is. In these two pictures there is about 13-15 kg apart. First one taken in 2010, and second one taken in June 2012
- And yeah, that’s red wine.. Not spilled by me actually, I was sober.

I started at 156lbs this March and ended with 121lbs. Since mid-June, I’ve gained some weight, but I’m working on getting fit and healthy again.
I’ve never really seen my before and after picture like this and wanted to tell people- IF I CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!
