It’s not easy to change your negative lifestyle habits. That’s why they’re called habits. But one woman finally decided that enough was enough, and as you can see from her incredible before and after pictures, the impact has been truly remarkable.
The 4ft 10″ 20-year-old, who goes by the name of melephants and who once weighed 143lbs, lost around 30lbs by eating properly, counting calories, and hitting the gym four to five times per week. She started by adjusting her eating habits (“I base my meals around a source of protein now (chicken, fish) and lots of veggies,” she says. “I don’t eat carbs that much, more on lifting days”) before gradually incorporating exercise into her routine. She spent most of her first month on the treadmill but she didn’t see much change, and so now she focuses more on HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). She works her lower body two-three times per week and her upper body twice, and during those sessions she does deadlifts, squats, bench presses and hip thrusts.
She’s also made smaller changes to her life, such as standing instead of sitting on the train, drinking more water, and leaving snacks and junk food out of her house. “Honestly, it’s not only benefited my physical health but my mental health too,” she said, adding that her lifestyle change has been the “best decision I’ve ever made!” So if you’re looking to shake things up then what are you waiting for? Take a leaf out of this woman’s book and start taking steps towards a happier, healthier life!
