Almost every New Year we make a resolution that we forget about a month later. So it’s pretty amazing when you see people who stay motivated and dedicated until the end and accomplish their goals. Especially when it comes to losing weight, we all know how difficult that is.
So, here is a list of people who transformed their bodies to give you that extra motivation and push you desperately need, compiled by Providr.
1. Reddit user Scienceninja3212
This girl who finally achieved her goal wrote, “Two years ago, I decided that it was time for a change. Today I am 50 pounds lighter, I am training for an upcoming marathon, and I feel the confidence to wear this dress to work today!”
A lot of people were asking what did she do to lose the weight, to what she answered that implementing fruit was what made all the difference for her “It satisfies the sweet tooth, and the fiber keeps you pretty full.” She also adds, “I also put cookie butter on apples when I was DYING for something tastier than salad. It was a good way to get past the hunger pangs without killing my calorie count.”
And when it comes to keeping calorie count she wrote: “I used the Fitbit app to track calories and exercised religiously for the first three months…It just kinda became a habit. Now, I’m to the point where it feels good to exercise and I naturally feel fuller faster.”

12. Imgur user Hurleyyy831
This girl who has lost 193 pounds in 2 years wrote “it’s ugly but it’s the reality of massive weight-loss. Loose skin. I mainly have it on my abdomen but I also have it on my upper chest and arms. It causes back and skin problems. It changes the way I can exercise and alters my center of gravity. I have to dress around my body instead of dressing the way I would like, there are certain things I can and cannot wear. And certainly, yea. It really has an impact on my self-confidence and how I see myself. My plan is to get it removed once I feel like I have toned and reduced it as much as I am able naturally!”
She also adds, “BUT I wouldn’t change anything. I would take yards and yards of loose skin over being the unhealthy and depressed person I was 2 years ago!”
13. Imgur user laosboytony
This guy shared a photo of him and his girlfriend and wrote, “Our combined weight loss is 180 pounds…here is our photo together.” Now that’s body transformation commitment! They look so cute together, it just brings a tear to our eyes.
14. Imgur user HeyDrunni
This girl who has lost almost half her weight wrote, “My weight loss journey begun 3 years ago, weighing in at my heaviest being 100kg… I don’t have a picture because well I hated myself so much I REFUSED to ever take one and now here I am, at 54 kg I’m almost half the person I was… [I] ran 6km every single night, rain or storm I didn’t care. Then when I got home I did basic military fitness test (as I wanted to get into the army). I shredded over 40 kg in my first year.”
15. Imgur user greengoateegal
This girl told her lost weight story and she writes, “I am 5’3″ tall. 134 pounds lost so far. I’m far from done; I still have 26 pounds to go until my goal weight, but I’m proud of the progress I’ve made! It’s been a long journey, but I’ve never felt happier about myself and where I am. It’s amazing how much life opens up once you’ve lost over 100 pounds of sadness and shame!”
She even adds words of encouragement: “Whoever you are if you’re out there and you’re struggling and you don’t think you can do it, I want to tell you that I’ve been exactly where you are and that you ABSOLUTELY can do it. I never thought I could, and yet here I am! If I can do it, you can do it. I believe in you.”

This girl who lost over 65 pounds through implementing plant-based diet wrote “Before and after from June 2016 to Halloween this year. Over 65+ pounds lost.”
“I ate primarily plant-based because of allergies/intolerances (also for ethical desires), drank a bunch more water, and steadily kept a constant workout routine for the most part of this and the past year. I had a bunch of disheartening plateaus but luckily powered through as opposed to giving up for the nth time.”
20. Imgur user brookecapulet
This girl who looks healthier and prettier than ever wrote, “I started in March 2017 by cutting out fast food, soda, alcohol, and carbs. I called it the “no” diet because it was no fun. (Haha). Since then I’ve gotten a little less strict, but I meal prep every Sunday and eat protein and veggies for breakfast and lunch every day, and then whatever it is my husband and kids want for dinner. I don’t exercise hardcore (just walks on lunch, chasing babies, and nightly dance parties) so I’ve tried to create a lifestyle that, for me, is sustainable.”
21. Imgur user Dollypartonbarbiedoll
This girl posted a before and after picture of herself and she captioned it: “It took four years (100 lbs the first year, 75lb in three) and lots of hard work. Simplifying it down, it was a massive dedication to portion control, cutting out processed foods, and calisthenics (squat PR 315 yo!). Meal prepping makes it easier, and finding a good workout playlist can push you farther than you’d think.”
22. Imgur user hexgar
