Drake’s proclamation that this summer, #Summer16, would be one to remember, has served as quite the motivation for people. Whether it’s the motivation to turn up with your friends or get your body right, the Summer 16 hashtag is full of plans and pictures of people, in the words of Oprah, “living their best life” or the life they want us to see on social media.

And Nicci Gilbert is a part of that number. The former Brownstone member is currently embarking on a weight loss, get fit journey. And she’s sharing the results. Earlier this week, Nicci said, that she once weighed almost 300 pounds. But vowed never to get to that place ever again.

And then she shared another picture of herself in a bikini after a swim.

While before and after shots are fun to look at and might even serve as inspiration for some of us, Gilbert is also sharing the work that she’s put in to get to this place. In some of her Instagram videos, she shares workouts, including runs in their backyard and boxing with her trainer, who just so happens to be her husband, Leonard Daniels.

How cute!

Check out some of Nicci’s workouts and before and after shots below.
