Why I Got Started

Well I was always a heavy guy going through my elementary school days, high school days, and even my first year of college. Throughout these years I was not happy with myself at all and I didn’t have any knowledge on the subject of getting into shape whatsoever. In the past I’ve tried to diet without any exercise with undesirable results, this time I wanted to try something different.

 

I started to read articles on a healthy diet and started to train with my cousin in the gym a few times a week mainly doing cardio and some muscle training. All I wanted to do was experiment with a workout routine, as many diet routines alone haven’t worked out in the past. To my surprise, many friends and family were complimenting my weight loss after only two weeks. This really motivated me and drove me to start my “new” life.

After losing all that weight I felt fantastic, but I wanted to go even further! I started to increase my muscle mass over the next 7 months while watching what I ate and maintaining a constant cardiovascular routine, because face it…I really didn’t want to go back to the way I was in my before picture. All that hard work and dedication led to what I am now and what you see in my after pictures.

How I Did It

After really kicking it into gear with my diet and exercise I saw major results yielding a weight loss of 3-4 pounds per week and ultimately a loss of 60 pounds in an approximate 3 month span, give or take a couple of weeks. I would hit the gym 5 times per week, taking Saturday and Sunday off.

Each workout was performed at 9:00 pm until 11:30pm. I enjoyed working out at night because I would be able to get all my meals in throughout the day for maximum energy for my workouts and after I was done I would immediately go to bed and let my muscles start to repair.

Everything else basically stayed the same except for cardio, I did reduce the cardio to 20 minutes of running and walking on the treadmill to 3 days per week down from 40 minutes every workout.

Suggestions For Others

I would definitely encourage anyone to move forward and push to achieve their fitness lifestyle goals. It does feel fantastic to finally get there and I could not have done it without my friends and family. I recommend going to the gym with someone experienced who you can listen to and even compete with which gave me a big motivational boost.

The one thing that really kept me motivated was the reaction I was getting from friends and family. Getting compliments really helped me stay on track and not slow down, it played a huge part in my transformation and it will in yours too. Surround yourself with people who care, this is key to staying motivated!
