I started to battle my demons; food, nicotine and lack of excercise
 
1 Attachment(s)
I started out in July of 2010 at 182 lbs and I was smoking near 2 packs of cigarettes a day I was 56 years old. I dropped to 111 lbs and am stronger than I was in my 20's.

I have used Fitday for many years and couldn't do without it. The home program was well worth the investment.

check out my before and after pictures.

Congrats! That is awesome. Did you quit smoking too?

yes Jane, I gave up almost 2 packs a day. that saved me almost $300.00 per month, so I spent most of that on a personal trainer.

That's the way to do it! Way to go! You look hella ripped in your "After" photo! Maybe you could become a personal trainer yourself one day?

Julie, You Rock!

You look amazing. I bet you are having a lot more fun now too. Life is so much better when you are in a position to go out and enjoy it.

Keep it up.

Natalie, I have quit many times, you just have to keep quitting! Everytime I quit I learned something about my hurdles with nicotine that helped me the next time.

Wow, amazing story to share...we all have those demons,hearing inspriational stories are what helps us all.:)

Julie - truly inspiring! I quit smoking several years ago and it was probably the hardest thing I've ever done - but WOW is it worth it! It's so nice to not be a slave to the nicotine. No more worrying about when/where I could have a cigarette.

My weight loss has stalled for the last few weeks. You've reminded me of how strong we can be when we put our minds to it!

Way to go!

Jane
