15 Women Who Prove It’s Not Necessary to Lose Pounds to Look Your Best

Looking better without losing weight — is that even possible? A person’s true shape transformation doesn’t depend on what the scale says. Weight is just a number which you really shouldn’t care much about because beauty is not measured in pounds. And here’s proof!

At Bright Side, we want to share these stories of usual women who changed their appearance for the better without losing a single pound.

“In order to have a dream body, you need to know a lot more than a number on the scale.”

“You don’t have to change your weight to look completely different.”

Lucy Baker

“If you want to change your appearance, focus on yourself, not on other people.”

“It’s not about how much you weigh, it’s about how you look.”

“Don’t be disappointed if the numbers on the scale don’t represent the changes you are feeling.”
