No dieting. No starving myself. No foods off limits. Yet I’m 4 kilograms lighter and have lost a total of 16cm off my waist, hips, arms and legs!
My clothes fit better and no part of my abdomen is attempting to escape over the waistband of my jeans.
Admittedly, it’s not just abstinence from alcohol. Having more energy means I’m exercising more and sleeping better, which is making me less likely to reach for sugary snacks throughout the day. I expected to lose a little weight along the way but, since I wasn’t overweight to start with I didn’t expect much of a change. So nobody is more surprised than I am with the fact that, at 43 years old, I’m in close to being in the best shape of my adult life.
That was worth doing!
