My name is Val and I started my transformation two and a half years ago. That picture on the left is from my 30th birthday party and I cried when I saw it. How did I get to 280lbs wearing a size 20/22?
I was pretty fit in high school and college as a cheerleader. Then laziness and getting comfortable set in. So I decided to do something about it. I had started and stopped fad diets for years. But this time I wasn’t going that route. I simply decided to eat better, track my food, watch my portions and consistently work out 5-6x a week.
For over a year I did really well. Then I went on a cruise and got lazy again. I stopped tracking, barely worked out and really had no drive. I gained back 30lbs in 3 months. I was crushed. I worked so hard for the last year just to ruin it. So I picked myself up again and started again.
I fell in love with lifting weights. I got a trainer to stay on me with lifting, continued my cardio and started logging my food again and watching my portions. Slowly the 40lbs melted away and I was back to feeling great.
These pictures are two and a half years apart. 280lbs to 195lbs and I’m still going. My goal is to compete in the near future starting in bikini and then moving up to figure.
