    Wow this was so inspirational! I get extremely obsessed with the scale and I'm really trying to train myself to think of the changes I see in my body instead of the number on the scale. Thank you for this!

    Wow, this is so inspirational - especially seeing the difference between your 130lb body when you lost weight through eating 1000 calories a day to your new 130lb body. SUCH a big difference. And I'm finally starting to understand how it was possible that I still felt fat at 140lbs. (That's as low as I ever got before piling the weight back on to my present weight of 203 over a period of 8 years).

    At 140, I was so close to my goal weight. But I still looked so chubby, I could still grab handfuls of myself. I've always told myself I must have a REALLY small frame, it was the only explanation I could come up with. The truth is, I just didn't have any muscle at ALL. I got to 140 through starvation, having 500-800 calories a day, thinking it was the only way to go. I feel so silly that I didn't figure out that I looked like that because I had no muscle - ah well! I was scared to do weight training, because (like most people), I thought it would make me huge and beefy and I didn't want that! *shakes head*

    I've been doing kettlebell workouts for about a month now, and I'm already starting to see changes in my body, even though I weigh 203lbs. It is SUCH a good thought to know that if I continue like this, I'll look completely different at 140lbs this time round.

    Thanks for the awesome post!

    Bump! I've looked at your thread here before, but I didn't post, however I think your story is amazing! I have a friend that says she just can't lose weight anymore and when my friends say that I think of your story, so now i'm bumping it so I can show them how exercising and workout even if they're not losing weight can take off the inches! Your story is so inspiring and I'm hoping that someday I can post my own inspirational story.

    Thats a great post. I dont think people understand the importance of resistance training rather than doing endless cardio. You make a great point with your pictures and look amazing. Well done x
