19 Of The Most Jaw-dropping Body Transformations That Will Leave You Super Inspired

Losing weight is one of the hardest things in the world. I should know – I used to be visibly overweight and was terribly unhappy because of my size. Then at the age of 16, after years of pining for a “dream body”, I dramatically changed my diet. It didn’t take long for me to lose 44 lbs and feel a lot more confident about myself.

I don’t have a lot of photos of myself from when I was bigger, but one of the few pictures I had of overweight me was in my high school yearbook. When I saw it for the first time, I dramatically blacked the photo out with a permanent marker because I was so ashamed of how I looked.

Not only did it make no sense because the picture is still intact in every one of my former high school peers’ yearbooks but also because it was one of the very few photos I had of a 15-year-old overweight me. Now, the only evidence of how far I’ve come since then are the clothes I no longer fit into.

Thankfully, however, there are people out there who are a lot braver than 15-year-old me. Here are 19 incredible before and after weight loss photos!

1. Everything about this man is the same, but that belly of his has certainly changed…

2. Not only is this woman a lot slimmer, she’s got incredibly toned arms now too!

3. He was once the world’s fattest man, but now…

4. From beer belly to burly belly…

5. It’s hard to believe that these photographs are of the same person…

10. This formerly obese man is now incredibly ripped…

Another reason losing weight is difficult is because it’s something you have to keep up unless you want to go straight back to square one…

11. This impressive woman can now fit both of her legs in one half of her pants…

There’s another reason weight loss increases our confidence and happiness. When we exercise, it releases endorphins AKA happy hormones.

17. This man can’t contain his pride, and it’s totally warranted…

18. This guy’s half the man he used to be…

I wish I could compare pictures of what I looked like back in the day to how I look now, but I’m still proud of myself for having the willpower to lose weight at such a young age and for doing it entirely on my own. Anyone else who has improved their lifestyle should be proud of themselves as well.
