Many of us could probably benefit from losing a couple of pounds. But let's face it, exercise is hard work, especially when there're so many things to distract us from it (like eating. And sleeping. And Game of Thrones marathons). But as you can see from this before and after list compiled by Bored Panda, the people who uploaded these pictures weren't so easily distracted. Realizing that they needed to lose some weight, they didn't just shed those unwanted pounds - they shredded them! Real beauty is on the inside, as we all know, but it doesn't change the fact that these bodily transformations are nothing short of incredible. Do you have any before and after pictures like the ones below? Then feel free to share them with us, and don't forget to vote!

What is wrong with you people any excuse to criticism get off your ass and use these as inspirations. See how her hips have no shape, that's where her skin is I've had 5 kids I know what im talking bout. Allot of people are embarrassed about there loss skin, see how skinny her neck is compared to the rest of her body that's her skin she's covered. She looks wonderful!
