Žena schudla 61 kíl do svadobných šiat. Tá premena je úžasná!

Mary Jane O’Toole z Floridy sa už nepáčilo priplácať si za oblečenie v nadmerných veľkostiach. Sama si to všimla pri nákupoch, keď väčšie čísla z rovnakých modelov oblečenia mali o čo si vyššiu cenu. “Keď som vyrastala bolo to veľmi obmedzené a bola som si vedomá faktu, že veci, ktoré sú väčšie stoja o dosť viac,” povedala v rozhovore pre TODAY Mary Jane. A keď ju vtedajší priateľ požiadal o ruku bola odhodlaná do svadby schudnúť.

#fbf #flashbackfriday to when we moved into our first apartment together. We had only been tracking our calories with @loseitapp for 1 month when we moved into this apt. ************************************************ I remember signing the lease for this apartment and being upset that we „settled.“ What I was truly upset about was having to live on the third floor. It absolutely terrified me. Growing up in a one story home I saw stairs as a daunting task. Especially since the first house we rented with roommates had carpeted indoor stairs that I regularly fell down 😂 ************************************************ Now, in a different apartment but still on the third floor, I see no issue with the stairs. In fact, after cardio I use them as a challenge and skip every other step on the way up. ************************************************ My ambition to be better and my hope for health drove away the fear of failure (in this case with stairs). Don’t let something mundane, like stairs, keep you from living your best life. ************************************************ #instadaily #transformation #fitnessgirl #fitness #motivation #postworkout #glow #girlwhoworkout #eatwhatyouwant #lifechanges #ilovefood #blogger #instafit #iweigh #yogaforeveryone #lifestyle #biggirl #fitgirl #thennowtomorrow #bullied #OOTD #yoga #inspiration #26 #twoyearslater #lifelongjourney #imtryingmybest

“Mala som dosť jasnú predstavu o tom, že nechcem byť tučná nevesta. Keď som vyrastala povedala som si to. Ale nechcem žiadnu odradiť od toho aby boli plus-size nevesty. Každá nevesta je nádherná,” hovorí o svojej vízii Mary Jane. Za svoj úspech bola vďačná aplikácii Loose it!, kde si zaznamenávala denný príjem kalórii. Sama priznáva, že sama sa nevedela zdravo stravovať. Nejedla kvôli hladu ale iba pretože jedlo dobre vyzeralo alebo voňalo.

From one October to the next. The left was the day after a wedding in Maryland. The right was yesterday after I found my outfit for my wedding rehearsal. ************************************************ On the left I had already lost over 70lbs. I remember being so proud of my progress. The shirt was from #americaneagleoutfitters and it was one of the first non-plus size clothing item I had purchased. Now the right photo – something I never thought I would buy or fit into – a low cut suede romper from #zara in a medium. ************************************************ I can’t believe how different I look from one October to the next. Amazing what drive, trust in the process, and stubbornness can get you! ************************************************ #instadaily #transformation #fitnessgirl #fitness #motivation #postworkout #glow #girlswhoworkout #eatwhatyouwant #lifechanges #ilovefood #blogger #instafit #plussize #nsv #yogaforeveryone #lifestyle #biggirl #fitgirl #thennowtomorrow #bullied #OOTD #yoga #inspiration #26 #twoyearslater #lifelongjourney #imtryingmybest

First week of resistance band circuit training was a success! So far I love the routine I’ve found and manipulated it to work best for me. Don’t feel obligated to stay on a path that isn’t working for you just because it’s what others are doing. ************************************************ After a year of light weight lifting, cardio, and yoga I was desperate to find something new, challenging, and most importantly NOT boring. Thanks to @selfmagazine and their resistance band work outs, I’ve found something I think is really going to work well for my body. In fact, I’m already seeing and feeling changes in my endurance and shape. ************************************************ Sometimes you have to completely reset to remember you are capable of great things. I’ve done this once and I’m doing it again. 🏃🏻‍♀️💪🏻 ************************************************

Potom čo stretla svojho terajšieho manžela, on bol dosť aktívny a veril, že tak si môže v rámci jedla toho dopriať koľko chce. Preto začala takto žiť aj Mary Jane no nikdy jej to nešlo podľa plánov. Po roku kontrolovania koľko toho zje začala hľadať tie pravé šaty na svadbu. Sama sa už vošla do veľkosti 12 (42) no svadobné šaty majú úplne iné číslovanie. Preto pracovníčky v svadobnom butiku siahali po veľkostiach 18 alebo 20 (48 – 50). No keď konečne našla tie pravé zistila, že nie sú v jej veľkosti.

After a month of limited to no exercise it feels so good to be back! I definitely lost a lot of endurance and strength but I know I can get back to where I was before the wedding. ************************************************ I took it easy today as I tested my limits. I knew taking a month off would reverse some of the progress. Today showed me that with love and patience not all is lost. ************************************************ Trust that you know what’s best for you but also know that you need to get your booty back to the gym. It’s time to show up for yourself 😘 ************************************************ #instadaily #transformation #fitnessgirl #fitness #motivation #postworkout #glow #girlswhoworkout #eatwhatyouwant #lifechanges #ilovefood #blogger #instafit #iweigh #yogaforeveryone #lifestyle #biggirl #fitgirl #thennowtomorrow #bullied #OOTD #yoga #inspiration #26 #twoyearslater #lifelongjourney #imtryingmybest

This is Gus! He, too, is equally amazed these shorts are too big. ************************************************ I bought these at the end of spring. These were my first pair of shorts that weren’t plus size. They also were my first pair single digit sized anything! Clothing has always played a major role in my life. I used fashion to express myself at my heaviest and to often distract from my size. At my heaviest, I adorned baggy dresses and boxy garments to conceal. ************************************************ I am thrilled to be able to shop wherever I want to now. These shorts are a size 8 and I’m still in complete disbelief they are too big. ************************************************ #instadaily #transformation #fitnessgirl #fitness #motivation #postworkout #dogsofinstagram #girlwhoworkout #eatwhatyouwant #lifechanges #ilovefood #blogger #instafit #oldnavystyle #muttsofinstagram #lifestyle #biggirl #fitgirl #thennowtomorrow #bullied #OOTD #yoga #inspiration #26 #twoyearslater #lifelongjourney #imtryingmybest

“Museli do zadu [šiat] pridať látku na vyše aby som videla ako budú šaty vyzerať. Našla som šaty, ktoré som si ihneď zamilovala no povedali mi ak by ich mali objednať v mojej veľkosti stáli by 600 dolárov [cca 553€],” spomína Mary Jane. No aby sa vyhla plateniu tejto “dane z nadmerných veľkostí” začala cvičiť 5-krát do týždňa a skutočne sa do toho zamilovala. Potom čo sa jej podarilo schudnúť ešte viac našla šaty svojich snov a už z terajším manželom si povedali svoje “áno”.

When shopping for a dress I strictly told every bridal consultant I wanted my back covered. The back of this dress originally went down to right above my butt. This dress caused a lot of internal and external body image issues. Self hate talk, poking, prodding, corsets, and spandex. In the end I wore a simple undergarment and COULD actually breathe. ************************************************ It has become very important to me to love my body since it has carried me this far. All of my hard work deserved to be showed off. I’m so proud and happy I didn’t go with a big fluffy dress. While I don’t hate fluffy big dresses, I knew it wouldn’t be authentically me to wear something hiding my body. ************************************************ #instadaily #transformation #fitnessgirl #fitness #motivation #postworkout #glow #girlswhoworkout #eatwhatyouwant #wedding #bride #lifechanges #ilovefood #blogger #instafit #yogaforeveryone #lifestyle #biggirl #fitgirl #thennowtomorrow #bullied #OOTD #yoga #inspiration #26 #twoyearslater #lifelongjourney #imtryingmybest

I’m back!! Took a bit of time off leading up to the wedding but here it is! I’m in a dress I NEVER thought I would be able to wear. ************************************************ I must have tried on at least 20 dresses before I decided on this one. At first, I thought I wanted a dress with a bigger skirt to conceal what I’m the most insecure about. Shopping 8 months out from the wedding meant I needed a dress that could be easily altered. ************************************************ This dress, although so tight in places my rubs felt bruised the next day, gave me so much confidence. I have along way to go in the self esteem department, but I have to say – this dress helped push me. I was going to wear 3 types of spandex to hold me in and flatten out all my loose skin. I had some with butt pads and at one point considered a corset. In the end – I wore @spanx that were 2 sizes too big just so I could be smoothed out and not squished. That’s it. Always going to try to love myself more. (My groom, who I did @loseitapp with is down 75lbs and met his goal summer 2017). ************************************************ #instadaily #transformation #fitnessgirl #fitness #motivation #postworkout #glow #girlswhoworkout #eatwhatyouwant #lifechanges #ilovefood #blogger #instafit #wedding #weddingdress #lifestyle #biggirl #fitgirl #thennowtomorrow #brideandgroom #OOTD #yoga #inspiration #26 #seventhanniversary #lifelongjourney #wine #married

Treba vyhovieť každému

No napriek tomu, že sa už Mary Jane zmestí do menších veľkostí stále bojuje za to aby obchodníci mali férové ceny. “Veľké dievčatá chcú tiež vyzerať dobre a ich sebavedomiu nepomôže, keď vojdu do obchodu a nemôžu nájsť svoju veľkosť. Ženy míňajú peniaze. Ak väčšina ženskej populácie je plus-size, nechceli by ste vyhovieť ľuďom, ktorí si chcú kúpiť oblečenie od Vás?” konštatuje Mary Jane. Hovorí aj o tom, ak sa prispôsobíte nakupujúcim tak sa k Vám budú častejšie alebo cyklicky vracať aby si niečo kúpili.

Let’s talking shopping! ************************************************ Reasons I love clothes: – self expression – how it can make you feel powerful and beautiful – how it can carry you into important times in your life and help create memories – the way it can start conversations ************************************************ Reasons I hate clothes: – inconsistent sizing (I bought this dress today – it’s a size XL. I am not that size anymore and didn’t even look at the tag when I tried it on because the hanger said Medium). – it can create a false sense of body image because of their fit, tag size, etc – societal pressure to always look good ************************************************ I have always turned to clothes and shopping to feel good and cope. Today I went out with no goal to find anything in particular and managed to come home with 8 items and 2 new pairs of shoes. It wouldn’t have been possible without holiday gift cards and wedding gifts. It also wouldn’t have been possible without 2.5 years of dedicated calorie countingon @loseitapp and exercise. Clothes have the opportunity to make you feel amazing but they sometimes ruin our minds and blacken our hearts. ************************************************ This #holidayseason let’s be kind to our bodies and know that if something doesn’t fit it’s not because your body is wrong. Everybody’s body is beautiful. ************************************************ #targetstyle #targetclearance #stylehasnosize #instadaily #transformation #fitnessgirl #fitness #motivation #postworkout #glow #girlswhoworkout #eatwhatyouwant #lifechanges #ilovefood #blogger #instafit #yogaforeveryone #lifestyle #biggirl #fitgirl #thennowtomorrow #bullied #OOTD #yoga #inspiration #26 #twoyearslater #lifelongjourney #imtryingmybest
