The wife and I decided to start "eating better" and hitting the gym about 3 months ago. We have really cut down our bad fats, and have moderate carb intake (<1g per lb). Upped the protein intake to about 1.5g per lb. So far, we've been hitting the gym about 5-6 days a week, but the last month or so has just been terrible with all of the New Year's resolution people. Hoping it will calm down in a bit. So far things have been going well. I've lost about 20 lbs of fat, and gained about 10 lbs of muscle (went from 36" to 30" jeans). My wife has lost about 5 lbs of fat, and gained 2 lbs of muscle.
That’s some fantastic progress Steve, keep up the good work and keep us posted. I agree that gyms can suck this time of year especially if you work during the day and have to hit the gyms when everybody else does.
