@AnytimeFitness having lost 70 lbs, choose what you eat based on nutritional value first, not taste, and keep active

@AnytimeFitness I also agree with the adage ‘abs are made in the kitchen’. Nutrition is so crucial.

@AnytimeFitness always eat breakfast and don’t skip meals. And drink plenty of water 😀

- Keep a food journal. If you bite it, write it! ~ Connie A.
- Lift weights. It forces your body to use up stored energy to feed the broken muscles that need repairing. ~ Hesed B.

- Have continuous goals whether they be big or small-always be pushing for something. ~ Tad B.
- Train hard. Watch what you eat. Smile and have fun in the gym. ~ Jason P.
- It’s 75% diet and 25% physical workouts. Just cut out anything processed, salt, sugar, fried foods, soft drinks, and coffee. The hard part is being disciplined. Get past the first week of eating healthy and you’ll be on your way to loosening that belt. ~ Smajo H.
- Get a trainer that loves their job. I have a great trainer that pushes, supports, and encourages me. ~ Jessica B.
- Be sure to keep track of everything you eat. Walk walk walk and get a fitness band to track your workout. Set small goals so you don’t get frustrated. Keep with it because you won’t be fit overnight. I’m almost down 100 pounds and let me tell you it’s a long process but I feel so much better. ~ Ron S.
- Cut out processed foods… and exercise! ~ Brenda G.
- The main thing is smaller portions. I still ate what I wanted but instead of 2 plates I just ate 1 plate. I lost 45 pounds in a short time and I was 40 years old. ~ Steve R.
- Drink water and eat HEALTHY. You can’t out train a bad diet. ~ Maricela R.
