From September to now I have lost about 25 lbs. I'm eat every hour with very healthy foods; plus I do not eat anything with gluten due to allergies. And cannot express water; lots of water. My new career has us training 4-5 days a week for 2 hours a day with endurance and cardio as the focus. Prior I was doing "some" cardio which I thought was enough; it isn't. Admittingly I have lost some muscle as haven't been able to weight lift like I have been used to but the minimal fat I had around my waist is all but not. Running short distances. Running long distances up to 6 km. Running stairs. Skipping. Riding resistant bikes. Doing circuit training (weight and body resistant) that keeps your heart rate up. All of this has benefited me.

Hard? Hardest thing I have done in my life. I thought I was fit before even when I was doing TKD, BJJ and weight lifting but it is no where near what I am now. Being committed and having somebody push you and expect results; gets results.
