7 week progress: My Way to Remove Love Handles! + photos

Hi all
Here's my 7 week progress in weight losing. I've named it "my way to remove love handles" !
I see lots of amazing long-time before/after photos which are unbelievably inspiring. I thought maybe by posting this, I can say that short-time achievements are also noticeable and can give you good results and feelings. I've started my diet on Feb 22th but unfortunately the left photo is the first one I took since the start. Back then I was 64.4 kg and now I'm 59.4 kg and still have some kgs to drop.
I hope the day comes when I can post a threat called "my way to remove saddlebags" ! :D
Cheers !

    I wouldn't say you had love handles before but you definitely don't have any after. Amazing Abs! Good job!

    You can definitely do it. I've lost average of 1 kg per week since I started my diet. During these 7 weeks I made two differences but I still don't know how much they helped as the average weight lost was the same. Here are those two anyways:
    1. I finally started doing cardio.
    2. I started to do IF from week 4.

    Thanks all :)

    All I did was Zumba. I started with 20 minutes. After 4 days increased it to 40 minutes and then 1 hour. Last two weeks I did about 120 minutes of it per day. (separated in two sections) :)

    Wow! What's your secret?

    Zumba! And intermittent fasting. :)

    Oh WOW you can really see a difference!

    Was you lifting weights to achieve this? What exercises was you doing? - Just noticed you have answered this above

    Also how many calories do you eat a day?

    How tall are you?

    Also interested in the intermittent fasting. I always fast the day before weigh-in every two weeks, so twice a month. I think doing that gives me a much more accurate/if not encouraging reading, and I always feel super good the whole week afterwards for some reason, but don't know much else more about it, other than that is what has worked for me so far.

    On a side note, Zumba looks super fun, I was thinking about trying it sometime, but I am currently doing Insanity for the first time and am really loving it.

    Thanks dear. Judging by your profile photo, you look gorgeous!
    I fast in 8/16 windows.
    I started doing Zumba in the first week. Started with just 20 minutes a day. After 4 days increased it to 40 minutes and then 1 hour. Last two weeks I did about 120 minutes of it per day. (separated in two sections) :)
