If someone asks you how long it will take to lose 51 kilograms of weight, what are you going to answer? Well, I’ve got an exact answer, it will only take 6 months if you’re strong-willed. Sure, you may be shocked, but it was made possible by this 22-year-old student /model/actress Joanna Joseph.
Joanna was a child who was overweight and was always harassed and shamed by the body. She chose one day to have it enough and changed her life that day. She decided to live a healthy lifestyle and her routine included exercise.

Have you ever looked back at pictures of yourself when you were younger, where the only thing that would hurt you is when you fought with your best friend and you tell each other “I don’t want to friend you” or when you lost your favourite stack of erasers. And now as we all grow up, life seems to change everyday with more bigger challenges, where we learn the real meaning of pain and loss, where sometimes it feels as if life is just too much and you just want to take some time off, or fly to a new country and start over because life needs a change. No matter how tough life gets, remember that in the end of the day, you are in control of your life. You do you. And no one, I repeat no one should ever have the audacity to tell you what to do, or tell you how to love, and tell you how to live your life. Your choices are important. They either make you, or break you. If you feel that you need to take a break, go ahead and take the break. Breathe. And tell yourself that things are going to be okay. Not today, not tomorrow, but someday. It might be a tough ride through, and you are going to be facing many many obstacles along the way. But as long as you put yourself first over everything else, you got this. Love yourself people! ❤️ #motivation #fitfam #fitspo #inspire #youcandoit #justbringit #dreambig #staypostitive #noexcuses #loveyourself #dedication #pushpull #focus #grind #strongwomen #girlpower #womanempowerment #newyear #confidence #fuckdepression
Joanna follows a strict diet plan consisting of a cup of orange juice, some fruits and two slices of whole-meal buttered bread in the breakfast, brown rice with healthy side dishes such as steamed chicken, fish, eggs, tofu, lunch salad and a chapati with some curry and vegetables for dinner.
Unlike other fitness freaks Joanna did not give up her favorite meals, the next day she enjoys something she likes and works out more.

I love ink. I personally believe that having tattoos are a special and beautiful work of art. A person shouldn’t be defined as bad, uneducated, gangster and so much more just because of their tattoos. I have a total of 10 tattoos on my body and each and every one of them have their own specific meanings. The most favourite tattoo of them all would be the one on my arm as you can see in the picture. It’s a quote from Linkin Park’s “The messenger” and it’s also a silhouette of Chester Bennington’s face. Linkin Park has personally helped me in my journey, especially through depression for the past 10 years plus. Their music speaks to me in many ways I can relate. And Chester’s struggle with mental health is something we should all take note upon. Mental health is something that should be taken seriously and not laughed at. I carry his message and himself with me everywhere I go to remind myself to stay strong everyday. Here’s some light to everyone who is going through a tough time lately. ✨ Hang in there. There’s always a rainbow after a storm. #portraitpage #theportraitpr0ject #portraitmood #kdpeoplegallery #portraits_mf #portraitfestival #bravogreatphoto #persuitofportraits #portraitvision #featuremepf #makeportraits #gramkilla #moodyports #bravoportraits #portraitsociety #discoverportrait #makeportraitsmag #earthportraits #model #malaysia #instafashion #fashion #colour #photooftheday #chesterbennington #tattoos #linkinpark #linkinparktattoo #depression #fuckdepression
Joanna says she remembers the time when people used to laugh at her for her weight whenever she feels demotivated. She keeps her old bad feelings running. She has a come a long since her childhood and now there is no turning back.
