Why I Got Started
dot

Summer of 2007 really sucked because that was when I was at my all-time fattest. I always told myself I needed to lose weight as a kid and I just never committed myself to diet and exercise until September of 2007. I felt like it needed to be done now or else it would never happen so I set my mind to it.

My 17 year old cousin showed me the ropes of lifting and taught me the basics. But I really wanted to lose body fat before I focused too much on gaining muscle because I want an overall physique. What could you possibly take more pride in other than your own body? I wanted to be able to take pride in the way I look. That was why I got started.

How I Did It
dot

Last fall before school I started watching my diet, lifting and running (nothing major), but at least I was following a strict routine. The results that I saw after just a month or so gave me the motivation that I needed and from there I was hooked. Over the winter for cardio I would run or jump rope every day.

People started noticing very quickly that a lot was changing about my physique. Surprisingly, most of my cutting and weight loss actually occurred in the winter. Now that spring has arrived I've really upped my mileage for running. People are always asking me how I did it and the truth is not what they want to hear.

They want to hear a secret or an easy way to get in shape quick. The truth is that there are no secrets and I did it by hard work and determination.

In the beginning when I was only running about 3 miles, I did it every day, if not I would jump rope. Now that I have progressed and built up endurance, I just run every other day 7-11 miles. Weight training every day rarely taking a day off from that.

Suggestions For Others

In my opinion, you really can't achieve the results you want if your just dieting or just exercising, you need both of them. You're the only one holding yourself back. You have to push yourself. Success comes from sacrifice. Once you accept that, your goals can be achieved.
