I have lost a total 16 1/2 inches and 6 lbs! As of May, I had lost 8 inches and 3 lbs. As of yesterday, I had lost another 8 1/2 inches and 3 lbs and my BMI was lower and I am getting back my figure. Four days a week, 45 minutes to an hour per workout, sweating like a pig, limbs shaking after the session...I am on a serious roll.
My trainer, whom I do not see as frequently as in the beginning, wants me to diet now in order to lose 10 more lbs and lower the BMI to a respectable level. Her point is, I can exercise to lose weight but cutting out most carbs and sticking to nutrition high in protein, fruits and veggies will lower the fat % I'm still carrying. The next 3 months, leading into the Bacchanalian fest of Thanksgiving, will be devoted to lowering the carb intake.
That means little or no wine. Wish me luck!
