Transforming one's body requires not only physical exertion but serious willpower; how else will you resist the urge to skip cardio and sink into your couch to watch HBO, bag of Cheetos in-hand? It takes time and effort to lose weight, and such a task does not come easily to many people, and not everyone's body is meant to lose weight for that matter. It's definitely not simple and is something that affects even the so-called "hottest" of people.
That's not to say you can't have any fun with it. In fact, the people in these before-and-after photos appear to be having a ball. These before-and-after pictures of folks who transformed their bodies serve as an inspiration to all, and in many ways are more heartwarming than any cute animal picture because they show people genuinely happy with their bodies. Photos like these allow people to measure the journey they made and celebrate their new selves, so here's hoping their hard work can be motivation to those who see these before-and-after body transformations.
