Last year I lost almost 40pounds strictly working out at home. No special meal plan. Just kept my calories under 1300 and worked out at least 45 mins every other day. I think the rower is a great idea. This year I’m doing zumba 3 times a week. So much fun

I did low carb 2 years ago and lost 25 lbs in 5 months. Be careful with this because my cholesterol went up (into the 200 range) I’ve since stopped eating meat entirely and am transitioning to vegan because since moving across the US twice in 2 years, I’ve out on around 40 lbs. my FI and I have the P90X workouts and will be starting them as well as a gym membership soon. I wanna get a headstart on getting in shape since we’re getting married next year. Hope this helps!

On January 1st of this year I started a low carb diet as well as going to the gym, running and taking fitness classes (I need variety or I get bored). In those 5 months I have lost 46lbs and my energy and endurance levels are so much higher. In the beginning I was also uncomfortable going to the gym because I was so terribly out of shape so I would go for jogs and do boxing at home with a Wii game called golds gym cardio workout. After 2 months I was comfortable enough with my weight and fitness level to go to the gym and take classes. You can do it!!!

The last time I was in pretty good shape was summer 2010, when  I was biking to school and working out at the gym for at least 8 hours a week. To get back into shape, I started running using a (free) Couch to 5K app, and I love it! I really like how it’s helped me improve gradually. Also, FI and I really don’t eat a lot of carbs, we eat a lot of baked chicken with veggies and one of our favorite dishes is bell peppers stuffed with ground turkey.
