What can you accomplish in 100 days? After reaching a peak weight of 348 pounds and suffering from depression and low self-esteem, San Francisco resident LaKeisha Shurn decided to turn her life around. She joined the #giveit100 challenge with the specific goal of hitting the gym every day for 100 days. Her journey wasn’t just about losing weight—she resolved to improve her confidence and learn to love herself, flaws and all.
She posted daily videos on the #giveit100 website and at the end of her challenge, compiled a timelapse video that shows her struggles, triumphs, and a whole lot of sweat. Over the 100 days, LaKeisha lost 18 pounds and two dress sizes, but more importantly, she also went from depressed to happy and hopeful, and from feeling helpless to empowered. Inspired by her own transformation, she extended her goal to a full 365-day challenge.
