Why I Got Started
dot

I guess when you have been fat at some point in your life, you ask yourself "Do I like what I see? Do I like how I feel?" I wasn't happy at all with the way I had let myself get to. I had gotten fat and was feeling horrible all the time.

Breathing was a hard thing for me. So I decided to get started but I always have to have a goal to keep me going. If I do not set a goal then I know I will fail. I was rather fat in my younger years and was often told "you need a bra" or "what's up fat boy?"

I Decided To Get Started.

I just got tired of it and finally made myself do it. If you can just make yourself diet down 1 time ... just 1 time, then you will be hooked! It is hard, I wont lie. Your friends will tempt you to eat poorly and people will say you cant do it, but you can!

How I Did It

Diet was everything. I decided to give Dave Palumbo's diet a try and wow, did it ever work! My fat loss was slow but steady. Every day I felt a little better and better. When I started to see my abs come in, I thought I was going to do a flip!

A mixture of weight training and cardio also helped take the fat off. I kept my heart rate under 130 bpm for an hour on the stair master 5 days per week. My training was simple, 4 sets of 8-10 reps.

Diet Was Everything.

1 body part per day for me, I like to do it this way so I can really focus on that muscle better. I stayed on Bodybuilding.com for motivation. My friends here were helpful and I really liked to look at bodybuilding pictures to help me stay on fire!
