223 Lb Woman Reveals What 2 Years Of Fitness Does To Your Body, And Her Transformation Is Unbelievable

If you want to lose some weight, this story will definitely inspire you to tackle those excess pounds Rocky-style. Esbeidy Barrera was unhappy with her body, so she decided to make a change and hasn’t looked back ever since.

“Being the socially awkward/lame person that I am, I’m internally screaming because I’m a few pounds down from last time I weighed myself,” the 19-year-old writes. “I’ve never been this darn happy.”

Barrera claims she allows herself an occasional OREO cookie or other dirty pleasure. “I don’t believe in diets, <…> I just try to be careful.” She eats everything, only in moderation and it’s clearly working wonders! Combined with regular cardio and weight training, this helped Barrera to reduce her weight from 223 lbs (101 kg) to 144 lbs (65 kg) in slightly less than 2 years.

“I’m still alive from working out twice a day (if work doesn’t get in the way), waking up at 5 am to go to the gym, be at school at 8 am and then go to work until 11 pm BUT I got goals to reach.” If you ask me, she definitely deserves to be in Bored Panda’s list of inspiring people who shredded unwanted pounds, using willpower and hard work.

She most certainly does deserve to be in "Bored Panda’s list of inspiring people". And I can see why she still weighs in at 144lbs. Just look at those muscular thighs. Its all in sleek muscle weight. She's one beautiful young lady, and serves as an inspiration to one and all. Thumbs Up!

Depending on her height, 144 is very slim. "Why she still weighs 144 lbs." Because she's not sick or emaciated. WTF? Look at a medical height/weight chart and stop with the photoshopped expectations.

Probably more like five if she's just getting off work at 11. If this is five days a week, it's not a heathy schedule.
