I was going through my photos and found one that really showed me before my diet. This was only taken like a year ago but wow, I’m so glad I went on my diet!!
I almost forgotten what I used to look like and looking back at this photo again both me and my bf don’t remember me being like this round, I guess when you look at yourself everyday someones you don’t notice the difference or anything, and yea you just get used to how you looked.
This photo was taken when I was about 49kg which was the heaviest I’ve ever been! I’m now 42kg and you can see how much of a difference 7kg’s makes on a small 158 cm frame, especially most of my fat goes to my face first and my tummy 🙁 so you can see the hugest difference in my face and cheeks omg!!
I did a double take.
So now for the reveal of this heavily requested before photo of my weight loss..it’s def not a flattering photo but I guess it’s for the greater good for you guys 🙂 Maybe motivate you to eat healthy and lose some unwanted weight!!
Just want to say before I show the photo I lost my 7 kilo’s safetly through eating more veggies, smaller portions and cutting out junk food. I got to this state because I was overeating and eating a lot of unhealthy fatty junk food and snacks (because my bf just moved in and he has a metabolism of a crazy person he can eat anything and stay skinny but I guess my body can’t keep up so I got big)
My typical daily diet was:
- A big lunch where I buy something from outside (therefore portion size was too big)
- Afternoon snack (sometimes like half a subway roll or a pie)
- Dinner (which is usually topped with cheese or creamy sauce and portion size like a big plate and like 1.5 bowls of rice)
- Packet of chips with avocado dip or like a bowl of noodles or rice.
THAT’S A LOT OF FOOD RIGHT??? I ate like this for a couple of months, no wonder why…
I guess your eating habits are largely influenced by who you live with and your friends so f you have friends that can eat everything and stay skinny, remember sometimes your body is different and you can’t have the same diet. I learnt this the hard way. Plus I’m getting older so you also get a slower metabolism naturally and slowly it will be harder to keep weight off.
…definitely not proud of this period of life…
I also have blog posts from this time but omg I heavily photoshop so much that you won’t even recognise the original image.
The best thing I did was start eating healthy…also cut down a lot of photoshop time…like ALOT!! So I guess losing weight also helped me save time on my blog posts 🙂
Anyway…it was a shameful time hopefully this photo will remind me never to repeat again.
Also sorry for the lack of shout out this week, I’ll do a double shout out next week when I’m back in Sydney 🙂
Learn from my mistakes
So I hope this photo has motivated you to eat more healthy, I have also written a lot of posts sharing what I learnt from my weight loss journey:
The Meal Plan – Comprehensive Guide on what to eat.

Hope you guys join me into healthy eating!! Although I feel like a hypocrite since I’m holiday eating (when you’re on a holiday you eat out everyday and it’s usually not healthy)
But it’s ok to treat yourself once in a while :)!!! I’ll get back to healthy once I’m back home.
