Altering your day-to-day habits is easier said than done.
Eating a little snack in favour of a piece of fruit or catching the bus when you could easily walk are little flaws that most people suffer from.
Imgur user Melephants was one of those individuals.
One day she decided enough was enough and made some changes in her lifestyle.
The 20-year-old once weighed 143lbs, but by erasing a few unhealthy habits from her routine she managed to drop 30lbs in the period of just two years.
She did this by eating healthy, watching her calorie intake and putting in the hours at the gym, at least four or five times a week.
Small things also helped like standing rather than sitting on a train and drinking lots of water.
See the results of her transformation below:
With regards to her new diet, Bored Panda quote her as saying:
I base my meals around a source of protein now (chicken, fish) and lots of veggies.
I don’t eat carbs that much, more on lifting days.
Her exercise regime now varies between High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and weightlifting.
She decided upon this after she saw no benefits from using the treadmill - it might be worth bearing in mind if you are clocking up the miles on those machines.
Her transformation has since gone viral and it has also improved her mental well being too.
It’s not only benefited my physical health but my mental health too.
Best decision I’ve ever made!
