My dudes, buckle up, it's a transformation story time!!!!
So why is Daniélle looking a bit different lately? Is it Photoshop? Did she wear a fat suit as a convoluted joke? Or is she just shitting more and eating less?
Well, all 3 actually!
I've always been the designated fun fat friend and I was quite comfortable in that role. Then in 2016 I enjoyed myself a little too hard at life's buffet table and gained a staggering 20 kilos.
I was already 15 kilos overweight.
Needless to say it was an enormous amount for my small frame to carry.
For the sake of my health I decided in July/August 2016 to start losing some weight. To be fair I had no idea what I was doing. With a starting weight of 86kgs, anything would be better than nothing. I joined the gym; walked the treadmill fucked and ate a lot more chicken. To my excitement the weight started coming off quickly. I still had a lot of fat, but it was less. By the time the second picture was taken (Nov 2016), I weighed about 79/80kgs.
I started dieting more strictly in 2017 and started training under @mflexifit, because I hit a slump. Eventually I weighed 63.
This didn't last long. Why? I started weight training vigorously and my body's needs changed. I ate too much, and way too much junk. I felt so defeated when the scale hit 72. I was basically back to square one. After venting my fear of just having to accept being this weight forever, Monique made me contact @fit_bunz_official_. Annie got me back on track with my diet and is keeping me motivated. Between my amazing dietician and training partner, I dropped back down to 65kgs. I still have a way to go, but I'm much closer now than I was 18 months ago!
Do I still occasionally fuck up? Duh. Do I still experience super fat days? YES!!!! Do I think of giving up? Every time I get a setback.
But through it all I know I have come way too far.
I didn't lose weight because I thought I'd be prettier. I don't haul my ass to the gym because fitting a certain look will get me "a nice man". Every weight I pick up is for me. Every time I feel like vomiting after jogging is for me. My body is a monument to the fight I've endured and I will show it off because I am proud
