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, which helped you focus more on day-to-day goals.
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 what helped you hit your goals, and upload your side-by-side before-and-after pics to show off your incredible progress!
Feel free to tell us as much about your experience as you want to: your best tips or tricks, how much weight you've lost, or even when you started your journey.
The best responses will be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post or video!
