I have been at this lifestyle change for a little over 9 months and certainly see changes, and so do others. I do feel much better. I have lost over 30 pounds but have been a little disappointed at not losing more. I know that I have been losing inches . I gave away 8 pairs of shorts, went to the shorts that were too small for me and had to have them taken in, some of them 6 inches or more. Now I hope that there will be a summer so I can wear them. lol
When I was at the Mayo Clinic for a routine check up a few years ago I was aghast when I was told that I was over 50% fat!! I don't remember exactly if it was 52%, 56% but it was over 50%. Really? Wow!! Several months ago I went to Max Muscle to have them check the % of fat that I had in/on my body. I was really hoping to be below 50%. I was pleased to find that I was at 32%. Yesterday I went again and was euphoric to discover that I was 26.8% which is excellent for my age!!! Yeah!! That means I have lost around 30% of the fat that I had to drag around with me all the time. I guess what I am doing is releasing the fat and replacing it with muscle.
Come work out with me sometime.
