Transformations are not always about weight loss, this transformation from @feechrystall is inspirational to say the least. This is her story... ------------------------ Right be kind! Ive never shown anyone the photo on the left apart from my family and close friends 🙈 And I know its not pretty but be kind and bear with me!
At 18 me and my wee maw were told i was a lost cause, Id had it so long and was so far gone that I would probably always be a chronic anorexic.
At the time I was happy as anything, I had no desire to get better. But i know girls that have been told the same who are trying their best.
At no point does recovery become unacheivable. It is possible and it is wonderful.
#repost Just a reminder that this journey is a process. It will take time, but it'll all be worth it👊🏻 Keep pushing, keep putting in the work, stay positive, stay consistent, take it day by day, YOU GOT THIS! 💪🏻
Editors Note: Wlstories is a support group. We celebrate everyone's journey regaurdless of where they are in it. From 15lbs to 500lbs The real celebration isn't a number on a scale it's the fact someone is committing to being on this life saving / life-long journey. I encourage this community to get MORE involved in this understanding. Spread those positive comments around and encourage each other on their journey. -Keith That being said.... Meet: @thelongweighdownwithjess I've been on my weightloss 'journey' most of my adulthood. I thought I was doing all the right things but in reality was just treading water. In December I braved the scales and was smacked in the face with 198kgs/435.6lbs, I also saw a photo of me taken over Christmas and I didn't recognise myself and I had a sleepless night where I really panicked that I was not going to wake up the next day. It all became too much. I have been waiting to lose weight to do everything I want to do. I want to be a runner. I want to run 5k, 10k, half marathon and finally one day a full marathon. I couldn't sit around and wait any longer to feel fit enough to attempt these goals. I decided there and then I was going to do Parkrun (a 5km course). I have completed 9 Parkruns to date and now walk/run 15-40kms a week. I haven't felt this proud in years. Yes it's hard, it most certainly hurts but I would rather be in pain from trying to be active then be in pain from just sitting around feeling sorry for myself. I don't have all the answers but if I can give you any advice it would be to just go do it. Whatever that dream is. Do it now. Waiting gets us nowhere. Trying and not giving up gets us closer. My kids deserve a happy and healthy Mummy and I can't wait for them to cheer for me as I cross that marathon finish line one day. #wlstories . . . .
