Revealed: An Instagrammer’s Unexpected Weight Loss Journey

Posted: August 27, 2020 in Weight Loss
Wondering what it takes to reach your weight loss goal? This Instagrammer tracked her progress online and the surprising reaction when she reached her goal.

One of the reasons that many of us have a problem with healthily losing weight is the unreasonable expectations we have about weight loss. 

The most glaring example is how many people think that weight loss is a simple mathematical equation that, once solved, leads to life at a lower weight. In other words, they think that, if they go on the latest fad diet for a few weeks or months – *poof* – they’ll be slim forever. 

But sometimes even those who manage to find healthy weight loss success find out later that their goals and expectations were unreasonable.  

The Instagrammer Who Found That There are Parts of Weight Loss She Can’t Post About 

Transformation photos are just one of the reasons why many people who are trying to reduce their weight avoid social media like Instagram. Transformation photos are those split screenshots that show a before and after image of the person who’s trying to lose weight. 

Instagrammer Chandler Sosebee (@tacoboutamangover) lost 85 pounds over two years, all in front of thousands of her watchful Instagram followers. She used transformation photos to document the journey, the changes in her body and to help keep herself motivated. But there are parts of the journey that the photos can’t show.

“Paying attention to your protein intake is SO important on a fitness journey,” she says. “Your body needs protein for fuel in order to recover properly, so when you’re not getting enough of it, your body starts using the protein in your muscles as its protein source instead. It took me a lot longer to realize that than I care to admit.”
