Chastity shares her PCOS experience

PCOS story from @icey_rayne I was the girl in high school who was drawn to track and field. Running is in my family history, so I had a natural love for the sport. I couldn’t wait to get on the track and sprint with the wind in my hair and my opponents left in the dust. But, I wasn’t the typical looking sprinter – I was heavier. I just had those powerful legs that I used to pound the pavement to get me to the finish line quicker than the “skinnier” girls. My menstrual cycles in high school were often...

This is not a Phase, It’s a Lifestyle

Weightloss story from @laniquelifestyle As a kid I’ve always thought that I didn’t fit in because my shape wasn’t like everyone else’s. I was the curvy girl. I’ve always had a small waist, round hips, and large thighs and I hated it! All throughout high school I always felt like I was a big girl (I wasn’t, but you couldn’t tell me that). I was about 155 lbs and the weight fit my 5’4 frame perfectly. I just didn’t know how to embrace it. By the time I got my first job and did my first year in college, I...

Daniel fast changed my life

Weightloss story from @cold_gritz_ A break up after having my daughter made me change my lifestyle.

The Daniel fast requires you to only eat fruit and vegetables so it definitely was a challenge the...

I went into it a little lost

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 went into it a little lost but never hired a trainer.  It was like a trial...

Not being able to see or walk in future or do the things that I loved to do without a lot of issues was very frightening

Weightloss story from @huffnpuff2buffntough It was February of 2013 at 280 lbs that I finally became serious in learning the right tools and applying them to transform my mind, body and life and started my weight loss/fitness journey and forever lifestyle change. I was overweight for most of my life and I have had numerous health issues throughout my life with obesity being to blame. In 2012, I started experiencing some pretty scary and major neurological health issues. I suffered from an episode of Optic Neuritis that left me temporarily blind in one eye for about a month. My...
