The year is almost over, and one of the most common New Year's resolutions is to live a healthier lifestyle. However, the hardest part about any fitness journey is getting started.
And since everyone's experience is different, we want to know what worked for you.
Maybe the first step you took to becoming healthier was to hide your scale and full-length mirrors.
Perhaps you wanted to start off small and tried working out in 20-minute increments twice a week, just to get your body used to everything.
Maybe you decided to make some healthier choices throughout the day, like cutting down on alcohol or sodas and taking the stairs every chance you got.
Or maybe you started meal-prepping all of your dinners, or you enlisted the help of a friend and started your fitness journeys at the same time.
Everyone's journey is different, so we want to know what worked for you. Use the DropBox below to share your tips, tricks, or anything else that helped you start your fitness journey and hit your goals.
Feel free to tell us about your experience too (how much weight you've lost, when you started, etc.). Bonus points if you include your incredible progress pictures!
The best responses will be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post or video!
