How I lost 20+ lbs and kept it off a year later

By | Health & Fitness

90 DAY JOURNEY MEAL PLAN: As most of you know, just over a year ago I embarked on a 90 day journey to get into the best shape of my life – mentally and physically. It's now been over a year and I wanted to celebrate my anniversary by sitting down and having some real talk about how I lost the weight and kept it off. Because I developed some healthy, sustainable eating habits during my journey, it made maintenance so much easier.

Over the past several months, I worked together with my Registered Dietitian, Breanna Woods, RD to develop the official 90 day Journey Meal Plan for you! There are 4 dietary preferences and the food is SO DELICIOUS!

1. Omnivore
2. Pescatarian
3. Vegetarian
4. Vegan

All the meal plans are ADJUSTABLE based on your goals and your activity level!

Oh and in case you missed my day 90 update, here it is! I ended up losing almost 20 lbs in 90 days!

    I’ve been following you for many many years and you are glowing!! I can’t understand how people think they have the right to judge other people and their bodies.. you are stunning in any shape or form!!! I’m so proud of you and so happy for you! Love from Belgium ❤️

    • blogilates says:

      Ugh it’s still happening right now. Just posted something on IG and there’s a whole thread going on about my body and how I looked better before and how I’m too skinny now. People saying I lost weight because I’m not obsessed and not for my mental health. I just have to accept that the judgement won’t ever end so I might as well do whatever I want!

    • Vaiva Šlepavičiūtė says:

      @blogilates yes, do what ever you want, you look stunning and peaple judge becoise of jealousy

    • Eudora Mathewes says:

      @blogilates you look amazing! It doesnt matter of other people think you look too skinny. All that matters is that ur happy and healthy. Ily

    • Jodie Belotti says:

      @blogilates exactly! And people that truly care and have been following you since the beginning understand that! People will always have something to say and they are reflecting on you things they don’t like about themselves! And you would not be able to do all the workouts that you do if you were not eating properly! Do what makes you happy and we will be here to support you all the way ❤️

  • euphoric star says:

    Your such a literal queen and you inspired me to continue my fitness journey and never give up 💖

  • Charito Ruiz Cabrera says:

    Hey Cassie! this cuarentine I started exercising because of you. I’m overweight and you motivate me every day to be a better person! I love you and your videos because you’re an excellent person

  • Cynthia Cho says:

    No matter what body size you are Casey, we’ll always love you and your positivity!! ✨

    Especially me okay, I love you.

  • Rebecca Rosenzweig says:

    love you a lot and you really inspire me! I’m on day 37 of my own 90 day journey and I am feeling really happy! thank you❤️

  • ThePotatoBrownie :P says:

    I’ve been failing with my fitness goals, so I definitely needed this😭

    • Tiffany Salinas says:

      Yes! Me too! This video was definitely posted at a time I really need it. I am on a journey to lose 70 pounds. It is difficult and depressing.

    • ThePotatoBrownie :P says:

      Tiffany Salinas oh for sure it is! I’ve really been struggling to get up and exercise. But, I know once I loose the weight it’ll totally be worth it!

    • Klára Pohanková says:

      Look, I know this will sound cliché, but to achieve your goals, you really NEED to believe you CAN.
      Try to visualize yourself in 5 years. Who do you see? A fit, healthy and HAPPY person? Or an unhealthy and unhappy person, who regrets his choices in the past? The only thing that determines if you succeed is you. You decide what you want. You have to believe in yourself. I know you can do this! Surround yourself with people who cheer you on, who care about you and get rid of he toxic people. And don’t be afraid to get help!

    • Kuhu Naidu says:

      Same!! I reached out to four friends and told them I’ll update them on my daily food and workouts. Today is my second day and I’m loving it, casseys video also came at the perfect time.

  • Harmylie • says:

    Thank you so much Cassey. Such a positive and including message. Thank you for everything, sending you much love 💕

    Also to all people having insecurities about their body, remember that it’s an experience, not an image. We’re all different (for example, I’m skinnier than Cassey – I’m underweight for some reasons but I’m gaining, recovering! 💪🏻- and pretty fit but my tighs touch each other because I have a small pelvis, not a super small weight etc..) and that’s perfectly okay! You can do it ❤️

  • Dawn Sajan says:

    No idea why people are so rude. You’re an inspiration to me as a Asian American to stay fit and active! Thank you for the tips!

  • Aditi Gupta says:

    I don’t understand the backlash. It is like reverse body shaming. If someone would have decided to gain weight, they wouldnt get half the backlash she did. Why can’t people just get it that it is HER body and no one gets to tell her what should make her feel happy and confident. More power to you Cassey💖

    • Aditi Gupta says:

      @pastelgreed she has not forced anyone to follow it. If you find it unhealthy, DON’T follow it. I also do not see myself following it. That doesn’t mean I will hate on her for following it

    • Peanut Forever says:

      @Miša Ružinská Exactly. “Body positive” people have turned into the biggest bullies.

    • pastelgreed says:

      @Aditi Gupta I’m not hating on her for it. I’m a supporter of hers and I love her videos. I was just stating a fact – that the backlash she got wasn’t because she was trying to lose weight, it was because she started to calorie count and restrict in the middle of her journey. That’s the main thing that triggered many people and resulted in a lot of backlash. My original comment didn’t say it was a bad thing or a good thing. I know she consulted with experts in the fitness industry, and overall their opinion is that in order to lose weight there needs to be a deficit in calories – she discussed this in one of her videos.

    • natie portman says:

      I think that weight loss is a very personal subject. And it doesn’t mean that she is against fat people. No matter her size, she always spreads positivity

    • Maliha Intikhab says:

      I completely agree! And we know that she was doing it in the most healthy way possible and she made it clear she was doing it for herself. Why must we rush to criticise that this person must be doing it because to appease the opinion of others? It’s like you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. So might as well do it.

  • Tiffany Salinas says:

    I wish i could heart this a thousand times.

  • theFitty says:

    *SEPTEMBER AT THE NEW JANUARY! State your goals, popsters! I’d like to tone up and shed 1-2 lbs of fat :)* 😜🥰

  • Invading Minds says:

    You honestly look less stressed which in turn makes you look younger! You’re glowing and I’m happy for you! This is why I hate social media because it’s made people feel comfortable with saying terrible things to each other. Remember that for every person that throws negativity at you, there’s 10 more that support you!

  • Anika Ethila says:

    Can you do a “what I eat in a day” video

  • idalis says:

    I am obese and my sister is small, but even as we work out together and I lose weight. She was losing weight too and building muscle like me.
    What people forget is about how small our bodys are and how compact we become with muscles compared to the fat we normally carry.
    Whenever other folks made comments I just reassured my sister to flex her muscles and prove she is healthy.
    Others will always talk, but litterally your youtube account and blog helped both her and I. Dont ever stop!😁🇺🇸❤

  • Colleen Erin says:

    Cassey, I remember you talked about feeling like you had gotten so vanilla before you started the 90 days. I see on your latest IG post there are people saying they will no longer follow you because of your 90 day journey. You know what? Those people supported the “vanilla” you. The one who never spoke your mind because you wanted to keep everyone happy. But now you have followers who are dedicated to the REAL you, so the community will be even better!

  • Chelsea Frattura says:

    Cassie, I’ve been working out with you since I was 14 years old! Im 21 now and you have continued to be such an inspiration to me. When I was in early high school I had severe body image issues and I did not have a good relationship with food and exercise. I attribute so much of my personal growth with fitness to you and your positive energy. You taught me that it doesn’t matter what I look like, as long as I FEEL good, you made me love the feeling of getting stronger, and taught me how to harmonize the physical body and the mind. I always loved doing your videos because you were so encouraging, and you always pushed me to keep going. You have always been so strong, on the inside and out. Thank you for always being such an amazing influence, especially on young vulnerable girls like I was. I love you Cassie!

    Lmao people getting mad and offended over people who get fit and disciplined…? That’s just complete madness.
    Those who don’t take care of their bodies as much as others, prefer to shame them instead of changing their habits, so that they can keep living the way they have always lived, without feeling gulty about it, while making the people who have chosen to change their body composition for the better, feel guilty… This needs to stop.
    If you don’t want to get as fit, that’s fine, who cares, if you are happy and confident in your body, keep doing what you are doing. But don’t judge or shame people who do want to get as fit and to change their body comptosition, to hide your insecuruties. People who have managed to become fit and disciplined, should be celebrated, not shamed. The “body positivity” movement has become just toxic, not positive at all.
