My name is Natasha and I'm a certified personal trainer. In 2011, I decided to change my life. At 5'1", I went from around 200 lbs to about 120 lbs in a year and a half (give or take). Since then, I have lost even more fat, gained muscle, and maintained my healthy lifestyle. I have found a passion for fitness, nutrition, exercise and yoga and made it my career. I had a breast lift, reconstruction and augmentation in February 2014 to remove the excess skin on my breasts. Some of my other interests include Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Star Wars, Supernatural, comic books, horror flims, sci-fi movies, Smallville, LOST, cosplaying, tattoos, my dog Fozzi-bear and my boyfriend Mitch!

Updated Progress Post: From 2011 to 2014, from ~200 pounds to ~130 pounds now (lowest weight was 122). It took me a year to lose the majority of it, since then I have been maintaining, gaining muscle, and getting even healthier. I am a certified personal trainer now and have written a full guide to losing weight and getting healthy here. I also offer online and in-person training, which you can read about here! There was a point where all I wanted was to be skinny, now all I want is to be healthy. Soon to be a group fitness and yoga instructor as well, getting in shape has completely changed my life (I used to be in Culinary School for baking and pastry and now I’m a personal trainer? what?) and daily I try to inspire others and help them make that change.

This is going to be my next tattoo, guys! I was really set on my Gaga tattoo, and that will come soon, but my friend designed this for me and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I wish I could get it done now but I don’t have the funds.

One last picture. This is what happens when I sit down, JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER PERSON’S STOMACH IN THE UNIVERSE. it is normal and it is crazy to me that I am not ashamed for once to post something like this.

while mitch was swimming, i was taking pictures of myself. yup.

A lot can change in a short period of time. It’s been a year and a half since I completely and totally changed my life. Looking in the mirror is almost surreal now. I think that might be why my body image is so distorted, because I’m not used to seeing this reflection looking back at me. I’m still working on accepting my body, and still losing a few more pounds, but I have been feeling a lot better about my body lately. Forgive my ramblings, but I’m just thinking out loud, I suppose.

pretty obsessed with my hair now, ngl.
