Losing weight is HARD. Limiting your food intake, stopping a meal even when you still feel hungry can be one of the hardest things of all, in my experience. It’s just one more bite, what could it hurt, right? Taking the time to count calories and carbs can be time consuming, and finding time in the week to go for a walk or starting a workout with weights can be impossible for most of us. But these 11 individuals didn’t let these excuses stop them from transforming their lives, and these before and after pictures are so inspiring.

He did it all for his son, who made sure that he kept on track with his diet thanks to the amazing knack that children have to being unable to filter their thoughts. He didn’t want his life to end prematurely. He graduated college, had a child, but couldn’t help but feel like a noose was tightening around his neck. He had to do something. His favorite part of the weight loss? He is now able to keep up with his son and play outdoors, playing ball and going on adventures without getting winded.
These incredible transformations prove that there is no “good time” to start a diet or exercise plan. Right here and right now is better than tomorrow. We can’t do anything about “yesterday,” but we can do something about “now.” Take your future into your own hands and do something about it today!
