Why I Got Started
Ever since middle school I was generally unhappy with how I appeared. I became a very cynical and angry person with very low confidence, self-esteem and perceived self-worth. By my last year in college, I decided that I wanted to make a change.
How I Did It
I decided during my last year in college that I wanted to do something about my appearance. It definitely helped to have friends with similar goals.
We would go as a group to the college gym and work out at least 4 times a week at midnight. Being consistent about working out and dieting helped me see a massive difference within a single month.
I was able to lose 20 lbs in the first month! After seeing these results, I became even more motivated. People would notice my transformation and compliment me on it and that helped a ton as well.

I made sure to cut my bad eating habits that I had been accustomed to. I gave up on eating large and greasy meals and even gave up drinking soda of any kind and replaced it with lots of water.
Most days I would eat a lot of salad with low fat dressing and a healthy sandwich. This alone helped me lose 20 lbs within my first month.
At the time, I did not properly split my routine into body parts. I basically did these exercises (based on what I felt like doing) at least 4 times a week:
Full Body: 4 Times Per Week
* Standing Calf Raises: 3 sets of 15 reps
* Crunches: 3 sets of 20 reps
* Triceps Pushdowns: 3 sets of 10 reps
* Dips: 3 sets of 10 reps
* T-Bar Rows: 3 sets of 10 reps
* Lat Pulldowns: 3 sets of 10 reps
* Seated Cable Rows: 3 sets of 10 reps
* Alternate Dumbbell Curls: 3 sets of 20 reps
* Barbell Curls: 3 sets of 10 reps
* Cardio: 30 minutes
Suggestions For Others
Be patient and persistent! You cannot expect results overnight. Also, make sure you weigh yourself at the same time of day to see a more accurate weight change. If it helps, take before and after pictures as well.
