Why I Got Started
Back in February 2007 I weighed more than 200 pounds; I was fat, unhealthy and unhappy. I made the decision to get back in shape by the time I turned 40. 11 months later I accomplished my goal and had lost over 50 pounds.
How I Did It
Once I lost most of the fat and started to see some muscle definition I decided to start weight training again after taking nearly 8 years off.

Definition I Decided To Start Weight Training Again.
I am very honored and blessed to now be sponsored by NRG-X Labs.
I also made sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day consuming 1-1.5 gallons per day.
My training during my weight loss was mainly cardio. I did a session right away in the morning on an empty stomach and then, if time allowed, I would run again in the evening. My running sessions were usually 3-5 miles in length.
I would always try to get to the 5k mark and then go from there. On weekends I would sometimes have longer runs of 8-10 miles and these I would do outdoors.

I usually do 5 sets per exercise and keep the rep range between 5-10. My current cardio schedule is 5 days per week of low intensity cardio early in the morning on an empty stomach on the treadmill at 5-5.7 mph for 45-50 minutes.
Suggestions For Others
Never give up! You'll have good and bad days with weight loss, but staying consistent was always the key for me. I set my goal and was driven and determined to reach it.
There were many days that I felt like giving up, but that was never an option. A person has to fight through it and keep pushing forward.
