A FITNESS guru has revealed she didn’t always have the toned, lean physique she sees now.
After being told by men that she was too “fat” until now, she was inspired to change her body and lead a healthier lifestyle.
TikToker and gym bunny Alli Borrelli (@finding_alli) has lost 70 pounds since beginning her wellness journey.
To inspire other women who want to do the same, she offers online weight loss guides and coaching.
The self-proclaimed “queen of intermittent fasting, fitness and travel” shared before and after photos of herself in one Video to prove how far she’s come.
In the first photo, Alli posed in the water in a black bikini.
The brunette beauty had a very different body type than she does today, with her fuller stomach and curvy legs.
She then shared a video of herself eating chocolate, as well as more photos showing her heavier years.
After men said they wouldn’t date her because she was “fat,” as claimed in the audio, she felt energized and tried to silence the haters.
The videos and photos below showcased Alli in all her muscular glory.
Wearing a matching workout set, she performed squats with weights to signal her new commitment to the gym.
She then shared a series of bikini photos that showcased her flat and sculpted stomach, slender legs and toned arms.
“I did. So can you,” she wrote in the caption.
Viewers were amazed by her transformation and applauded her perseverance.
“Sometimes we need the haters. They create us,” one person commented, while another added, “Sometimes being hurt is a good thing.”
A third said she was gorgeous either way: “You were gorgeous then and you’re gorgeous now!”
And a fourth thanked her for the inspiration: “It’s stories like this that spur me on even more.” That’s great.”
