Not that long ago humans had to either hunt or grow their food as there were no supermarkets or pre-made meals. So it's only natural that keeping a healthy weight or gaining a few pounds given a chance is deeply ingrained into our DNR. If we hadn't had the drive to stuff our stomachs when food was a-plenty, half of us would've not survived the natural selection.

Now, gaining a few, a ten, or maybe even a hundred pounds seems like an easy task for most of us, but how about losing weight? It's well known that shedding the excess pounds has many health benefits and can dramatically improve both your health and your mood, but it also requires a tremendous amount of willpower to stick to your weight loss transformation goals. After all, it is a losing battle (pun intended).

Usually, the hardest part of body transformation journey is the beginning, so we've compiled an inspiring list that highlights how a person changes when on the right path. From saying goodbye to double chins to bringing back that spark of confidence to the eyes, these people in their before and after photos are reaping the benefits of their hard work. Don't be surprised if you'll feel a sudden urge to break a sweat after looking at their extreme weight loss makeovers. Hopefully, it will serve as an inspiration, because if so many people could do it, you can do it, too!
