Lizz, above are my test results from April 2012 and from this past Tuesday.  I didn't start watching what I eat and seriously exercising until September 1st 2012 when I first came to GPP. I was at my heaviest (268 lbs) by August and needed to do something different.  Joining GPP has been the best decision I've made in a long time and one that benefits not only myself, but my family.  I have more energy now than ever and although the weight has been slow to come off (need to be strict on diet), I have seen improvements in other aspects of my health. ... I weighed 268 in late August and today I'm at 239.7!  My new year's resolution was to be at 234 on my birthday in October, so now I need to adjust my goal and aim for 210.  
 
By the way, I HATE jump ropes.  Six months ago I could barely string 5 in a row....now I'm stringing 100 or more at a time...but I still hate them, more than burpees! 
 
Thanks again to you and the GPP staff.  You guys make working out fun!
 
Alex
