When I started my diet in June 2003 I was about 230 pounds (105 kg). Now June 2005 I am 173 pounds (78kg). I never measured my body fat


Why You Got Started?

I always loved bodybuilding, and from the age of 4 I wanted to be just like Arnold (it is a little funny but it's true).

I Always Wanted To Be Arnold.

Until 9-years old I was very skinny, but then I started to get fat and at the age of 16 I weighted 225 pounds. That was to much for a boy of that age, so I began to get worried about my weight.

At 16 I Began To Worry About My Weight.

At this point I got interested to join a gym, and that is what I did. I joined a gym and from the first day till now I enjoy every minute of training because "hard work = great results." I enjoyed that feeling. In the beginning I was doing only cardiovascular training and after I lost some pounds I started to lift some light weights.

"Hard Work = Great Results!"


How You Did It?

I did it because I believed in myself and I made a challenge with my family that I will lose weight and gain muscle (this is funny but it's true). I found help from the gym instructors; they gave me diets and routines to help me lose weight fast.

I Found Help From The Gym Instructors.

After I started the diet I measured all my bodyparts to see if I was making changes. This has really been working because the more results I see the harder I train.

To be successful you need to believe in your self and don't waste time cheating.


What Supplements Did You Take?

For me supplements are a waste of money. I didn't take many supplements. The only supplements that I took and found helpful is protein powder. I only used protein powder because I want to be as natural as possible.


Suggestions For Others...

My suggestion to the others is that when you plan a goal don't ever give up until you achieve it and don't waste time cheating yourself. Remember this - The harder you work, the more results you will see! Again ... HARD WORK = GREAT RESULTS!
