Why I Got Started

Back in January 2008, I went for a blood test and the doctor told me that I had high blood pressure and that I was overweight.

On my way back home, I began thinking that since I was only 31, I wonder how bad I would look when I turned 50 if I continued down this path. I knew right then I needed to do something about it.

How I Did It

I stopped at the store on my way home and picked up a fitness magazine. Inside, I saw an ad for Bodybuilding.com so I went online to check it out. I picked up a training routine and a diet plan from the website.

It took me about 18 months to lose almost 60 pounds of fat and gain muscle. My HIIT was the key for losing the fat. I was doing it every day, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Now I'm 193 pounds and 11% body fat and I'm still not even finished. My goal is to get down to 5% body fat while keeping my muscles growing.

Now I'm 193 Pounds And 11% Body Fat And I'm Still Not Even Finished.

Suggestions For Others

Starting is the toughest part. Give yourself time to see changes. Push yourself harder and harder each time to beat your previous records in the gym.

When I first started, I couldn't even stay on the treadmill for more than 5 minutes, but I just kept pushing myself harder and harder each time. Good luck to you all!
