Why I Got Started
dot

I decided to diet and exercise to lose body fat because I was tired of the way I looked, I didn't like it one bit. Every day I would wake up, look in the mirror and say to myself "Is this how I really have to look?" My little cousins would tease me and call me "fatty." They were of course joking but I took it seriously since I was so self conscious. One day, I remember, I was sitting in the back of my dad's truck eating an ice cream cone and my cousin Shaydan, 5 at the time, asked me "Why are you so fat? Does it hurt to be fat?" I sat there and contemplated the question for several minutes. I think that was the thing that pushed me over the edge and when I decided it was time for a change.

How I Did It
dot

At the beginning of my senior year I started off like a noobie. All I did was exercise and eat less, not paying attention to my macros. After stumbling upon Steve Turano's lessons, I started to eat less fried foods and avoided processed and fast foods. I did a lot of cardio like running, swimming and kickboxing. I never really lifted weights because I was obsessed with the thought of just lowering the number on the scale, a mistake I realized far down the road.

I was always into martial arts and doing kickboxing, taekwondo and grappling with friends was a good way to hone my skills and get in a good workout. As time passed, I learned more and started to train harder. My workout sessions went from kickboxing 3 times per week for 30 minutes to 5-6 times per week 45-75 minutes per day. I ate healthy and constantly to keep my body stabilized. It was probably around April of 2010 when I stopped my cutting phase that I realized I lost a lot of fat, but also muscle. I was "skinny fat." I realized I didn't just want to be skinny, I wanted to be ripped, and not just ripped, but HUGE!

Although I was pretty toned around 136 pounds at the end of my cut, I wanted to get more mass back. My philosophy is anyone can be cut, you just have to drop body fat. It takes time, pain and sweat to have mass. I changed my goals from cutting to bulking at the end of April and stopped bulking during mid June because I felt that I was gaining fat because I was eating too much, also another rookie mistake. I am currently at 150 pounds and am dieting but lifting weights so I can retain as much muscle as possible while losing fat. When I am around 9-10% body fat I am going to start trying to gain lean muscle mass and eat around 200 calories over my maintenance instead of the 600 that I was eating during the bulking. My goal is to be around 155 pounds while under 10% body fat by my birthday which is coming up in about 6 months.

Suggestions For Others
dot

My suggestion for others is to stay positive, be patient and to keep a log of everything you eat and how much you exercise. Of course you aren't going to see the results over night even the course of a week but you have to know that what you're doing is working as long as you're doing it correctly. You have to trust what you are doing is working and that as long as you keep it up, you will only see positive results. I also recommend finding a workout buddy because that helps SO much. When you find your workouts are starting to get boring, switch things up. Try new things to keep your body moving and active. Instead of just running on the treadmill for 30 minutes, try martial arts, swimming, biking, or something that is fun yet vigorous so you work your body to the max to achieve the body you want.
