This week, PEOPLE shared the stories of six women who lost half their size through diet, exercise and serious resilience.

Christina Jordan, a mom of three, went from eating just 500 calories a day — and gaining weight — to losing a whopping 134 lbs. thanks to a healthy diet.

Lindita Halimi grew up in war-torn Kosovo, where eating was an act of survival. Once the war ended, she started eating uncontrollably — food was now readily available — and quickly hit 250 lbs. But by making healthy recipes she found online and dedicating herself to weight training, she slimmed down 130 lbs.

Joanne Raymond learned to stop yo-yo dieting — she lost 100 lbs. and gained it all back twice — and finally dropped 133 lbs. for good.
