If you love a transformation, you'll meet Motherlode in the last few days. Thanks to the viral "10-year challenge" (sometimes referred to as "how hard has aging got you?" Challenge), everyone posted a 2019 photo along with a photo from 10 years ago on their social media. Some are funny (Amy Schumer), some are inspirational (Sophia Amoruso), and some suggest that it is possible to end aging. (Reese Witherspoon, only how? )
We are dissatisfied with health and fitness conversions, and the challenge has triggered many, along with reflections that go far beyond weight loss or muscle tone. Here are some dramatic benefits and after effects that you need to see. (But first, look at these transformations, which will inspire you to lift weights.)
Transformation is not just about losing weight.
Challenge accepted. Spring 2009 through Winter 2019. What a difference 10 years can make It is needless to say that much has changed, but the most important change for me … is my trust. And it's about much more than weight loss. It is growth It is from the beginning to learn to love oneself internally and externally, not when you reach a goal. It's a process that takes time and always has to be something I have to work on, but it's worth the work! , Side note – It's hard to find old photos of myself, because if you're unsure about your body, you usually hide halfway behind friends in photos, and I have no solo photos. I'm so proud of who I'm in the last 10 years and would change one of those horrible years that has to do with the idea of body, self-confidence and all the other baggage that comes with it, because it has led me to where I am today. And more importantly, because I can help you all, to avoid amazing women, to avoid as much as possible! #teamlsf #lsfrefresh # 10yearchallenge
Katie Dunlop of Love Sweat Fitness looks different than 2009 The changes go beyond the physical, she explained. "What a difference 10 years can do," she wrote in her caption. "It's needless to say that a lot has changed, but the most important change for me … my trust, and it's about much more than just weight loss, it's growth, it's learning to be in and out from the start To love on the outside, not when you reach a goal. "
It's never too late to start.
In her transformation photo, trainer Jill Jill pointed out that she "is not just a" fitness girl "because she did not take up fitness until the age of 39, which is considered late by social standards Photo she was "a divorced single mother, broke, overweight," who had experienced some hard times, but in the second, she smiled from the cover of Muscle & Fitness Hers . (Try, Jill & # 39; s HIIT training without equipment.)
Fitness trips are not linear.
2011 – 2019 # BrittneBABE21DayChallenge ⠀⠀⠀⠀ My journey has been continuous, from weight loss to weight gain, to less muscle and now to more muscle mass. I started genetically skinny and during my teenage years, my diet was horrible, resulting in unhealthy G habits and poor diet. After finding out who I did not want to be anymore, my health and fitness journey began. Yes, it has had ups and downs (it still does), but this journey has brought me in harmony not only with the outside, but also with the inner life. I learn how my body works. I know how many cheating meals I can get, and I'm not shocked to be examined. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I say all this to say we are all different. I do not want to be physical goals. It is important to learn and know YOUR body so that you can become your own body goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've been around for about ten years and have a lifetime in front of me. You should never stop this journey because you have reached your "goal". Your only goal should be to achieve the best quality of life. #brittnebabe #nodiets #healthyliving
Trainer Brittne Babe has published two photos every 10 years. Goal is a learning experience. "My journey has been continuous, going from weight loss to weight gain, less muscle, and more muscle," she explained. "I started genetically skinny, and during my teenage years, my diet was awful, which led to unhealthy habits and bad diet, and once I found out whom I did not want to be anymore, my health and fitness journey began." Now she's starting to understand her body more, but still has ups and downs, she explained. (See also: The transformation of this woman shows that a healthy place could arrive in a healthy place, could cost a few tries)
It takes work.
As easy as it looks on Instagram, coaches are not super fit people. "If people see me now, they have the misconception that I have always been so apt, provided I am endowed with a wondrous genetic predisposition," wrote Adrianne Nina in a post. "The picture on the left is a young version of me that was not health conscious and had no reason to be, at the time I had no idea who I am today, it was 7 years ago when I decided I Making the difference between the two is a testament to my ongoing efforts to be the best version of me. "
You could look back and laugh.
Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, a complete badass who won the CrossFit games, indicated that she started CrossFit with room for improvement. She made fun of hashtags like #rockingrunningshoestolift and #usedmostlymyfacemuscletolift. "It's okay to look ugly, it's okay to fail, it's okay to be frustrated, and it's okay to feel lonely …" she wrote, "It's just not OK to give up! And besides, never take yourself too seriously that you can not look back and laugh at your younger overachiever and oh so serious and intense self. "(Check out Leblanc-Bazinet and other evil CrossFit athletes who follow you on Instagram should.)
Love you at every turn.
2007 vs 2018 Since I've already undergone a 10-year transformation, it's now 11 years. , Before: * Partied * Only fast food eaten * I would not walk in a gym * Almost no water drunk * Had difficulty sleeping * Digestive problems + GI problems due to bad eating habits. After: * Enjoy a glass of wine or two here and there * Eats 80/20 * Works for my mental, emotional and physical health * Drinks 3-4 liters of water a day * Prioritizes sleep * No more digestive problems except when I'm tall Cheating). Although I did not have much to lose, my transformation was largely health-oriented. I am also proud of the physical change. And there are only 5 pounds difference between these two photos! However, what I would like to add and clarify is that despite the differences between these two photos in the 2007 photo, I still loved myself. No matter how much I weighed or not weighed, I never leave myself alone and ask for my value. You deserve to love yourself now, no matter where you are on your journey, even if you have not even started. Please know that now and always. #fbggirls #fitbodyapp # 10yearchallenge www.annavictoria.com/fitbodyapp[19659007ApplicationfromAnnaVictoria(@annavictoria)am
Anna Victoria of Fit Body has shared her 10-year years ago challenge was even one thing, so she came back with an 11-year transformation. Victoria said she has followed a more balanced lifestyle over the years, from fast food to 80/20 eating style, to avoiding and exercising at the gym, and occasionally celebrating wine. She also pointed out that shooting for fitness goals and positive body feelings are not mutually exclusive. "No matter how much I weighed or weighed, I never let myself question and question my value," she wrote.
Fitness can change your mental health.

Massy Arias (@mankofit) is writing exercise for overcoming a period she was so depressed that she would lock herself in the house. (And later help by depression). She touched this journey in a ten-year challenge photo. "I started training and eating healthy to overcome depression, lack of self-confidence, and life content," she wrote. "It became my passion and my medicine, today my passion has become my career."
