Women's Health Logo By Sarah Bradley, Locke Hughes of Women's Health | Slide 2 of 16: "Whenever I feel like giving up-trust me, I still do sometimes-I just remind myself of the girl in those pictures and how unhappy she was. I just never want to look in the mirror and see her again. That keeps me motivated. I’ve come too far to let a plateau hold me back.” -Cortland West, 24, lost 80 pounds
