Why I Got Started
My dad had been telling me for years that I should start lifting. I was never really into it, I would work out a couple times then quit. A little more than a year ago I was starting to feel bad about the way I looked.
I would be tired for no reason, and I could hardly run at all for any extended time. I just felt like I was missing out on the joys of being fit. I then decided I wanted to lose weight. I wasn't to concerned about building muscle just getting rid of my stomach.
How I Did It
I started out trying to eat less food, but not really watching what I would eat. One day I saw a commercial for Hydroxycut. I bought a bottle, and then started to get serious about watching what went into my body.
I lost about 40 lbs before hitting a plateau. I was around 215-220 pounds for about a month, before buying another bottle of Hydroxycut Hardcore. This time around I started working out on a strict schedule, and began watching my carb intake.
After about two bottles of Hydroxycut I ended up weighing in at about 170 pounds. Since then I have gotten down to 153 pounds by continuing to be strict on my nutrition, and weight lifting six days per week.

Suggestions For Others
Don't give up. Stick with it and keep moving forward, it will be much easier to discipline yourself when you start seeing results. The No. 1 thing is no matter what you look like or how out of shape you may think you are, you can change the way you look and feel.
