The before and after pictures of these women make us realize that losing weight is not everything when it comes to fitness. Most of the time when you pick a healthy lifestyle and the scale doesn’t show it, you get demotivated without observing how the form of your body is changing and getting better day by day.
Here these amazing body transformations act as a reminder that the scale is not the final arbiter of healthy living and that one needs to stop linking fitness to this number.
In fact, how about we change the famous phrase ‘when you look good, you feel good,’ and make it to ‘when you feel good, you look good.’ And we all know that we feel good when we eat good and these pictures are living proof of this.
