Weight gain story from @jayvelazquezfit I was super thin all my life but it was never something I was ever really extremely self conscious about. But about 3 years ago, my Instagram became flooded with pictures of fitness transformations, especially girls who went from skinny to fit and thick. So I thought to myself “if they can do it, so can I” and I went for it. I signed up for a gym membership and began lifting weights 5 days a week.

I can now do 10,000 skips in 1 hour 33 minutes

Weight loss story from @africangal_gets_fit Truthfully, I’ve always thought that the day I wanted to lose weight I would just pull off the Jennifer Hudson trick on everybody! A month to my 22nd birthday, a friend and colleague at my workplace kept complaining of how overweight she was, and expressed wanting to do something about it. At the time, she weighed more than fifty pounds less than me, and I couldn’t help but wonder if she could complain about her weight, what about me?
