Why I Got Started

I got started because I realized it hurt to tie my shoes. My head would pound, it was hard to breathe and I would get dizzy when I stood up. The second reason was that I was turning 40-years old so it scared me to think I was 40 headed for a heart attack!

How I Did It

First and foremost, I must give a lot of credit to my trainer Angela Courduff (AngelaC on BodySpace). Without her knowledge and guidance I could have never done it! I changed my diet to a high protein, low carb and low fat diet along with daily weight training and cardio. Most important, I was strict with my diet and worked out as hard as I could push myself.

Suggestions For Others

A few things I had to learn was you have to eat to lose weight. Don't get me wrong, you can't eat pizza every meal, it has to be the right foods.

Secondly you need lots of water to flush that fat out. Every time I didn't get enough water I gained weight. Finally, and in my case most importantly, set goals. I realized I had stopped setting goals and that's why I got so far out of shape!
