Well, mine wasn't technically a new years resolution. It just happened I found out about some health issues around the holidays and was able to get this rolling at the new year.
In these 6 months I have lost 58 pounds. I went from getting winded from walking across a parking lot (and grocery shopping my only exercise) to being able to do two hours of two tough workouts back to back - BodyStep followed by BodyPump.
I've gone from a size 20 to a size 14 in clothing. And I went from needing high dose meds for blood pressure, to none. Gone from uncontrolled diabetes numbers to normal range and went from high cholesterol to within normal ranges all with diet, losing weight and adding fitness. My thyroid which was very under active is about right now... Might still need some tweaking.
And, I've been doing low carb (under 100 net carbs) for 6 months and haven't really missed the carbs because they made me feel bad. And, in those 6 months I've only had one higher day and even that was at maintenance level.
All in all, I am so happy where I am. I had really hoped I could get to 175 by my 42nd birthday in mid December. I didn't think I could do it, but hoped to at least get to under 200 pounds and this week I did that - in just six short months.
I'm not starving. I'm not torturing myself. I actually feel great - the best I've felt in a very long time!
