People Who Dramatically Transformed Their Looks And Shared Their Progress Along the Way (21 Pics)

With body positivity movements on the rise, it’s becoming easier to be comfortable in your own skin these days. There’s a growing community of folks who are happy with the hand they were dealt and are quite welcoming to anyone who wants to be included.

That being said, some people aren’t happy with where they’re at physically and are ready for a change. That’s fine too. I find it incredibly inspiring when I see a post about someone who was 300+ pounds and put in the discipline and work to get themselves in shape.

I hope these inspire you to make a healthy change in your life. You’re worth it.
