In this world that revolves around beauty than accepting and loving oneself is creating low-self-esteem and the feeling of an outcast, especially if you don’t like what you see in the mirror. Though beauty is not the most important thing, but sad to say people do get depressed when they see themselves in the mirror and knew they don’t belong unless they do something about it.

These people have been in this situation, but made self-improvement. See their transformation and you wouldn’t believe they’re the same person.

And then I decided that I really wanted to get better, so I started working on my health myself. I gained weight, and I was able to work the whole day. I was able to live on my own and finally became a ‘real’ adult!”

  1. “My parents got divorced, and I lived with my grandmother for a long time. I was surrounded by women. It was bad for me. I was bullied in school. And I was fat. After that, I moved, and I entered college. I was scared of being bullied again, so I tried to meet a lot of people, and I wanted to be very communicative. I made true friends, and they helped me to have a more active lifestyle. That’s how I managed to lose weight. Now I can communicate with any person.”
