Hello! I've been lurking and learning for a bit...so glad to have found this site, you guys are amazing!

I'll keep this short and sweet. Saw Forks Over Knives and read a lot of books, the best for me being Eat to Live, never looked back.

The last six months have changed (and probably saved) my life:
- Lost 17 lbs
- Resting HR from 100 to 60s
- Allergies Gone
- Insomnia Gone
- My cardio went from nonexistent to INSANE :D

I absolutely HATE putting a before photo out there (yuck!) but it's the only way to explain how excited and happy I am about the changes so far. I'm about 1/2 way to my goal...six months from now I want to look like Michelle Risley!! (We all need our dreams :wink: ) I've competed in bodybuilding in the past (at age 35 and 39). Now at 49 I'm lifting heavy and killing the cardio, and FINALLY have a diet that nourishes my body while getting rid of fat. I'm VERY excited to see what the next six months will bring.

You look fabulous. (you do in your before too). And I love the new hair colour.

Good to hear you are getting such great results. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
