20+ People Who Were Tired of Carrying Extra Pounds and Now It’s Hard to Recognize Them

If you haven’t managed to lose weight before summer, don’t worry. Your fight with extra weight should not be rushed. We have chosen inspiring examples for you — stories of people who’ve had enough energy to change their lifestyle. Pay attention to how their faces changed: now it’s almost impossible to recognize them.

Bright Side has compiled a list of pictures of strong men and women who lost that extra weight. Some of them did it fast, others needed years. But however they did it, there is something we can all learn from them.

“I promised myself if I lost weight I’d get a nice suit. 65 lbs later, I’m suited up just in time for my brother’s wedding.”

“I just started eating less than 25 grams a day.”

F/29/5’3″ [218 lbs — 116 lbs = 102 lbs] (11 months) “I’ve now maintained this for a year and I can’t believe I ever looked that way.”

“I now maintain eating between 1,750-2,000 calories a day depending on my daily activity. I went from a U.K. size 22 to a size 6.

What I lost in boobs, I gained in confidence.”
