“This time last year I was at my highest weight, close to 170 pounds. I am 5’4 and based on my age, which was 43 at the time, height and weight, I was considered overweight. I became depressed, yet motivated. I started to walk several days a week then began to run. In July of 2014, I decided to join a gym. I was somewhat skeptical because I wasn’t comfortable in a gym environment. I made the decision to commit to getting in shape, as well as change my diet. I became a Vegetarian. My body began to make noticeable changes and the pounds started to shed.  On October 19, 2014 while at the gym, I suddenly became dizzy, disoriented, sweating profusely and experienced shortness of breath. Rushed to the ER, after lots of tests, not only did I suffer a mild heart attack, but I was diagnosed with a genetic heart disease. I remember my Cardiologist saying, you have to stay out of the gym indefinitely. I was devastated. I had worked so hard. While recovering at home, I started to walk several miles per day in the park. Thinking about everything I’d been through and putting my life into perspective. I have family to live for. Maybe staying out of the gym is what’s best for me. Those were my daily thoughts, but I knew I couldn’t sit around feeling sorry for myself. With my Dr’s ok, I slowly began working out after only 5 weeks. Fast forward to today, this is how my body’s transformed. I spend 5-6 days a week in the gym weight training. My heart condition is controlled. I am no longer on any medications. Most importantly I’m celebrating my 45 birthday in a little over 2 months. Facebook: Rachel L Johnson as well as Fit and Fabulous after 40.”

 “Everyone’s fitness journey isn’t the same. We all have goals! This is to inspire those who have difficulties with gaining and maintaining weight because we work hard too!! In the pic on the left I was an avid runner weighing approximately 130lbs (6’0″). The pic on the right is current and I lift heavy and do interval training. Current weight is 157lbs. “

My name is Brianna (@carbsdontkillmyvibe) and I started my weightloss journey in 2012 after I finished graduate school and realized that I had gained 50lbs! Weighing 187lbs I never exercised, ate tons of fast food, was depressed and unhappy with my body. When I stopped going out and taking pictures because I was so unhappy I knew I had to make a change. I cut out fast food, began eating clean and working out 5x per week. Slowly but surely the weight began to fall off and in 2 years I lost 50lbs! My weight loss has been completely natural as I have never “dieted” or used pills or products to get my results. I think this has been a big part of me being able to maintain my results! Since I have lost the weight I continue to eat clean, workout 5x per week and am now looking into becoming a certified personal trainer so that I can help other people attain their health and fitness goals. Not too long ago I started @carbsdontkillmyvibe as a way to document my weightloss journey and hopefully inspire others to make a healthy lifestyle change! IMG_4343
