How I lost 90 lbs (41 kg)

This is something I have wanted to write about since I started this blog, but I wouldn't allow myself to until I reached 90 lb exactly haha. I know it's so easy to be dishonest on the internet, but this something I am really proud of and want to be totally honest about.

I had been chubby since I started getting closer to puberty, by the time I got my period I was noticeably overweight. I had a short spell of starvation weight-loss, but once I started eating normally again I gained all back, plus more. I continued to gain more and more weight until I reached 235 lbs.


Me before and after 41 kg weight loss

One day I woke up and it was like epiphany, a veil was lifted off my face. I was sick of being the token fat chick, and I was going to be thin. The desire to change coursed through my veins. I firmly believe that no matter how much you wish to be thinner, you will never reach it with out the desire and vision.

The easiest way to start dieting is to simply eat less of what you already eat. Track what you eat for a couple days, count the calories and then try to lower it to around 1500 kcal. Also, give up soda and alcohol!! This seems so obvious and the easiest way to cut a lot of calories, but you'd be surprised how many people claim to be dieting but still drink sodas with their salad.

I started slowly by just walking on the tread mill 30 minutes, and increased time and intensity as my weight came off. I started adding 5 mins to the time each week, and when I was up to 1 hour, I switched to 30 mins on the tread mill and 30 on the elliptical.

How my face changed

Remember to switch between your cardio exercises every 10 minutes or so. If you are already close to your goal weight, spending 30 minutes doing only one exercise will have no effect at all. Your body will just get used to it and burn no calories. Mix up your cardio with strength training, lift those weights! No matter how afraid ladies are of gaining muscle weight, muscle will burn so many more calories! You will loose weight so much easier!

Now I am doing a Jillian Micheals DVD, the 30 Day Shred. It's circuit training and it's soooo difficult, but it has made such an obvious difference in my weight and metabolism. I cannot strongly recommend circuit training with weights enough. Sadly to really loose weight you have to really work out, you can't just diet or do some crunches. I exercise about 60 minutes a day, 7 days a week.

It is not to say dieting is unimportant of course. Its very important for your general health as well. Everyone can benefit from eating a balanced diet, heavy in vegetables. The key is to eat a large variety of foods. Eating only 1 type of food will make you very weak and unhealthy, you won't be able to exercise. You need some carbs, you need some sugar!

An embarrassing photo of plus size me haha!

Eating 4 to 6 small meals throughout the day has proven to help with weight loss. Don't be afraid to eat often! It won't make you fat as long as you aren't eating high fat foods. Here I will list some food tips that are easy to adopt.

1: Eat more fish, less meat. Of course fish can contain mercury, but they are full of protein, with out all the fat and calories of meat. A serving of meat/fish is about the size of your palm. Don't eat more than that.

2: Fruit is ok. Some people say not to eat fruit since it has natural sugar, but you need some sugar for energy. As well it provides vitamins. I recommend citrus fruit, especially grapefruits. They are sour I know, but they have lower sugar. I also like to snack on raisins.

3: Fiber will fill you up. Everyone should eat some carbs, and it's best if you can make them fiber carbs. Fiber is easier to digest and makes you feel full. Eat your fiber for breakfast to avoid snacking. Try oatmeal, or whole grain pasta.

4: Nuts are your friends. Nuts have high fat for sure, but they have protein and nutrients! Eating a small serving of raw almonds or walnuts for breakfast is a great idea. Eating chewy food as your first meal generates saliva and helps with digestion during the day.

Other foods I highly recommend are blueberries, which have antioxidants. Green tea is a dietetic and helps flush out your system. Eggs can actually be good for you, just only eat one a day. You can never eat enough veggies, when you have dinner eat 1 serving of protein and 2 cups of veggies.

How I look today^^

Well this post got really long haha >< I still want to write more about this topic, especially the emotional aspect of it. I am not an authority, but if you have any dieting questions please feel to ask me, because I've learned alot on my journey^^

  1. You must be so proud to have reached your goal! Congratulations!!
    It's incredible how your face changed, you're pretty no matter how much you weight, but I'm sure you must feel healthier now.

  2. Omg, that was really you some years ago??? I can't really believe it! It is like I see the photos of two different persons here.
    You are a great example that if one wants to change something you need to work hard and you will be rewarded. You have become so unbelievably pretty now! (I thought you had been pretty like you are now your whole life:-)

    So this were your great news, I suppose? Honestly, I didn't expect it to be something like this XD So congratulations for loosing that much weight, it must have been a huge challenge but you made it! You have all reason to be proud of yourself.

  3. The before and after pics are like night and day! You are truly an inspiration. I have been totally bad in the exercise department. (Unless of course you count shopping at the mall) Worse yet, I am paying for it every month too. I don't eat enough nuts but I do make an effort to eat fish. *sigh* I'm trying.

    P.S On a separate note, you are a smart cookie for talking your way into a stuffed animal! :)

    i lost 30 lbs

    people used to call me fatty. it's so harsh
    and the worst part of all i wasnt that fat to begin with.

    people are rude and insensitive. i think that this society is full of B*LLSHIT..

    i forced myself to walk 2 hours a day 4 years ago. It was very painful for me.

    But anyways u did a good job losing weight
    90 lbs is a lot by the ways...

  7. I've read that you live in Minnesota, but I didn't know you live in Minneapolis? How could you not love that city? Guess it might be another thing if you grew up there.

    I've been to a lot of other cities in the States, but Minneapolis is the best:D

  26. This post wasn't long enough in my opinion! Where do I begin!? You're amazing :O, a true inspiration IMO!!! And you preach the truth about healthy ways to shed pounds!! I can't even comprehend losing 90lbs~ The work and dedication that goes hand in hand with your goal!!

    The soda thing really hit home. After I lost my weight this summer (a measly 15lbs) friends would ask me what I did. I did very similar things as you and they'd bite my head off saying "Well I can't drink diet soda, that's 1 thing I couldn't live without! And I have no time to work out!" And I just sit there looking dumbfounded and annoyed for trying to even help.

    May I ask how long your journey's been? I'm thinking a year's time but it's OK if you'd like to keep that private.

    And of course, congratulations on your goal!

    ReplyDelete
  27. AMAZING! I'm so proud of you, I hope i can commit to loosing weight as well :( but thank you for your post, this is really helpful, and it kept my hopes up, i can do this too!! thank you again, c(",c)

  30. Congratulations! This is amazing!
    I'm dieting since I'm a child (at least it feels like this) and I lost 20kg two times and gained it again... -.-
    Now I'm trying again, just the beginning, but this time I'm more than determined to reach the same goal as you and lose around 40kg.
    I'm not sure if I will ever reach this (as I never weight so less I can't imagine it) but I'm sure I can do it.
    I really can understand that you are proud of what you have reached and I hope you will remeber this awesome moment when you lost the 90lbs forever ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. what a very inspiring story! congratulations and it's all thanks to your hard work! that's quite a goal to have accomplished... :D so awesome!

  41. Jesus, Sara! HOLY COW!

    You went through a LOT to lose that much weight!

    It makes me feel all the more like I REALLY CAN get this weightloss thing down.

    I'm slowly getting into the habit of walking more and sitting less. I walk about 3o minutes a day now.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Okay, I just have to say it: you are one of my *heroes*. I mean it! The transformation you went through as shown and told is just *amazing*. I recently started following your blog (came over from Universal Doll), and it's been great thus far. But this post really hits home for me.

    I'm kind of in the middle of an attempt to get down to a healthy weight for a variety of reasons (one of which was being an example of the "not eating right = loss of body processes" about a year and a half ago). I did lose 12 pounds last spring, down from 209, but I've gained back this winter. It's been really hard to try and get myself back on track. Currently, I'm doing my best to take up trying to lose weight again (starting next week!), and seeing your journey just made me believe that I *can* do it. I'm feeling inspired to gear up for a new try, and reading this post really helped. I can only say I wish I'd seen it sooner.

    So *thank you* times three for being so brave/kind to share your amazing achievement. You should be proud; it takes courage to stick to changing as much as you did! In any case, I just wanted to thank and congratulate you. I hope I can follow your example; cheers to you!

  44. wow you are a true inspiration :)
    could i ask if you had any problems with loose skin after your weight loss, i am really worried that after all my hardwork i would still be facing problems with my body.oh and how long did you take to loose all that weight?
    thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yes, I do have a problem with loose skin. I don't mean I have flaps of skin just hanging off of me, but everything is just generally loose. The fat I still do have kind of hangs away from my body, I look un-toned and about 10 lbs heavier than I actually am.

    I have terrible lunch lady arms, which I generally just hide with long sleeves. And I use shape wear to hold in my hips and stomach. It's nothing really terrible of course, just annoying haha.

    It took about 1.5 years I think, I did take some breaks during it. And I've recently been able to loose another 5 lb, making my total 95 lbs lost.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm really amazed!
    I'm also trying to lose some weight, coz I'm gaining weight non-stop at work (due to lack of exercise). Am determine to lose those extra weights, but then my determination is always short-lived. I'm really amazed how you could continue that for 1.5 years. I find it hard myself to continue after jogging for the first week.

    But with my current weight and size now, I cant do much jogging or do any lunges as my brother says that my knees cannot support my weight. Any advice?

    Thanks!
    Am very much inspired by you to lose those fats now!!

  49. eveychua - even just walking fast is a good exercise. Also I think swimming and biking are great for low impact on the joints.

  50. (Hi, I just started reading your blog, and i'm completely in love~! p.s.: I'm also from Minnesota~!) :3
    Wow! In your latest pictures you honestly look like you've "always" been small. I would have never guessed! This is really impressive and motivating for me. :DD
    I'm currently pretty heavy. D: Though I've gotten down to my lowest weight ever last summer(67kgs) while my heaviest was (81kgs). Well now since the winter started/ended I had gained soooo much weight like 15lbs/6kgs worth. D': ugh.
    So what I'm getting to is this post is very inspirational to me and will definitely get me to work out more and eat healthier~! Thanks dear :33

  51. Alot of nice tips here thanks!
    You made alot of effort loosing that weight, I can't imagine how hard it must have been.

  52. I am only at the start of my own weightloss journey but your success is very inspirational! I hope I can claim the same results in a years time! I've lost 25lb so far but ultimately want to loose 95 in total!

    I hope you will read this so you can answer my questions! 1. How tall are you? cause I'm quite short which is why I need to lose so much to be at a healthy weight. 2. When you first started losing weight, how long was it before you could see the results on yourself? I may have lost 25lb but I cannot tell though everyone else says they can.

    Anyway,
    Congratulations on the weight loss! :D

  57. First of, I am new to reading your blog, and I am loving it ! ! You're so sweet and open :D

    Reading this entry made me realize that the only way I'll ever get my lousy 5 extra kilos off is by getting of my lazy ass and MOVE. I have always suspected that but... this made it so much more real to me. Damn' it.

    About the loose skin, I haven't been through the massive weight loss as you (whitch is increddible btw <3 much love !!! and respect)
    But I have also been on the long term mission to lose some weight and I have found that massaging my arms and thights and belly has made the skin more firm, ..

    Are you still constantly losing weight? or have you set put on one weight? And to compare my uptight ass with yours, how tall are you??

    Pardon the old weird me ;D

  58. Wow. Congrats. You're officially my real-life-person thinspiration. You're the size I want to be now: not too thing and nowhere near fat or chubby.

    You're so right about activity though. I have had a really healthy diet for the past few years but that hasn't changed my body much. I have a cheat meal once/week (broccoli and mushroom pizza) to save my sanity, but nothing crazy. My body reacts to hardcore cardio (elliptical and swimming) more than dieting.

    Do you find yourself using weights more or just calisthenics/pilates? I do the latter and find hundredpushups.com to be a fun challenge. You should check it out!

  61. Awesome.

    Just please, don't ever become obsessed with that and anorexic/bulimic. You've become almost too much skinny, you could even gain quite a bit of weight and still be perfectly in shape. I'm not saying you should, you don't look unhealthily skinny, so as long as you don't feel weak or dizzy or anything like that, that must be ok. There's a "margin of error" on being in shape, but right now you're closer to the bottom margin than to the upper margin. Just don't "don't worry" about it too much as well, of course, hehe.

    Congrats again.

    and even though i don't actually really know you, i am so proud of you that you could achieve something like that at such a young age. now you get to enjoy your youth and it's so amazing... i REALLY want to be able to wear gyaru clothes, so i'm gonna use you as an example and STRIVE for it!

  67. Sorry to contribute to the bumping of an old post, but I wanted to extend my congratulations for your accomplishment!

    I can totally relate, as I was pretty huge and somewhat in denial, but in the last 12 months I worked really hard and lost over 100lbs - I'm a tall man, so it's less of an accomplishment than your own! I'm still working hard, and I consider my routine to be my lifestyle, not just a diet. I'm glad that your new shape has helped your passion for fashion. :)

    I am currently (successfully) trying to loose weight, but there are some great tips in here, which I think I'll take with me. ^__^ Also, a very inspirational post! Makes me wanna go out on a jog, though my doctor forbids me to job during winter... ^^;

  78. I just wanted to let you know that you inspired me to lose weight. A few years ago I worked out every day for a week for about two years, ate super healthy, and still didn't lose any weight.

    This summer I found out it was because of a medical condition and while I've lost a bit since going on medication, its begun to level off and I got depressed again. This post really let me know that yes, I can do it.

  82. Congratulations on losing this much! You look amazing! C:

    One thing though, you shouldn't give out information about food without explaining why you say the things you say, and if you say that it's proved, you need to link to the scientific research that proves it! The 'small meals, often'' is totally broscience, and actually does nothing for you metabolism. And fat does not make you fat!! It's all about calories in vs. calories out.

  83. I too am impressed by your weight loss. If you don't mind I have a couple of questions...

    What pushed you to finally lose the weight?

    How and where did you start on your weight loss and healthier lifestyle?

    Finally, how long did it take you to lose your weight?

    If you could answer these questions as I am currently on my own crusade against the calories, I would be extremely grateful. And if not, I completely understand!

  86. I'm new to your blog, but good for you! I've lost 60 lbs in the past year and I couldn't be happier. Most of it came from going to a gluten-free diet because I was sick all the time from what turned out to be a gluten intolerance. Now I love exercising and I eat lots of veggies every day.

    Good for you! You absolutely have a lot to be proud of. Also, your blog is adorable and I LOVE it. I wish I was fearless enough to dress how I liked every day, but on a college campus like mine, I'm sure I'd get stares!

  87. Amazing, I am really happy for you. : ) It must have taken a lot of patience and determination to reach your goal, very admirable. :---) It is so nice to see how much happier, healthier and more confident you look like these days (compared to your old self). Congratulations! c:

    ...and 41 kilos is a lot..! : o If I had been in the same situation than you were, I am not sure if I had had enough willpower to loose that much weight, you are amazing! :---)

  88. Every now and then, I return to this post for motivation. Like right now as I eat my nomtastic strawberry, granola and flax seed cereal. Healthy isn't as hard as most people think.

  89. I really can understand you!

    I want to loose some wight too (okay about 30kg haha) and i always think it is impossible because i was always not girly and not the feminine slim type. those thoughts are really not good for my health, my parents always told me i could never be as slim as the oters.

    but i am to shy to go to the fitness center because I think, everyone will laugh at me and my horrible condition....

    but it is even more depressing when I see those gyaru fashion and realize i won't fit into them unless i losse about 20-30kg.

    thank you for your post, i hope i can send you a mail if i have any questions?

  92. I think it is great that you lost so much weight, but there is some misinformation in your tips.

    Fibre is actually an indigestible type of carbohydrate; it is not easily digestible at all. Fibre is still very good for you, though; soluble fibre forms a gel in your digestive tract and slows down the passage of food, keeping you full for longer, and insoluble fibre.. well, it clears you out. :D

    Though fibre is very good to have in large amounts, you still need a bit of non-fibre carbohydrate in your diet, as your brain can only use glucose for energy. (Not many people know that, but it's super duper important to remember! If you don't have glucose in your diet, your body goes into starvation mode and breaks down fat for glucose by making ketones, which makes you exhale acetone, and also makes your body acidic, which is dangerous. Breaking down fat through exercise is a whole different process, though, so you don't have to worry about exercise making your body acidic as much).

    I'm sorry if this seems rude. I think it is great that you are giving people tips, so I just thought I would let you know what I know...

  97. OMG what an inspiration <3. It's kind of rare to find a weight loss story that was actually about hard work. I've just started trying to loose weight. I alternate days between rising an elliptical an doing Leslie Sansone's walk away the pounds. :] I already eat pretty healthy (I only drink tea and water, and mainly eat fish and chicken, salads with no dressing (because I don't like dressing eeeeew, and fruit.) So yeah :] I'm really into Gyaru fashion, and I've already started practicing it, but I don't really want to post any pictures of myself until the weight loss ^^ again, what an inspiration <3
