Why I Got Started
I was a skinny kid growing up, always wanted to be the big guy but was unsure of what to do to achieve it. Then in high school I met a kid named Justin Wilcox who was not only a fitness freak but also on the school football team and was much larger than I was.
We became close friends, hanging out all the time, so I asked him what he did to gain the size he had. He knew his stuff extremely well, and after learning and listening to what he had to say I became hooked, striving for a larger and fit physique.
He brought me to his gym, helped me start up a beginner's program, and from there it all blossomed. I fell in love with fitness and haven't stopped since.
How I Did It
I achieved these gains through hard work, determination, and the two most important aspects: consistency, along with diet. I work out every day, some days include just cardio and others may include 2-a-days.
I revamped my whole diet and got rid of all processed foods, read a lot of information from Bodybuilding.com and Bodyspace and from what I read came up with a diet that was best fit for me.
I set goals along the way, and made them public to all my friends/family so I had more motivation to reach them.

Isolating one body part per day has been the best routine for me, but I like to mix it up often so my routine varies every few weeks.
But by doing a body part a day it gave me the rest in between I needed.

Suggestions for Others
In fitness it is critical to have patience, results do not happen overnight. So keep at it with a consistent workout plan and diet and results will come.
It can be intimidating going to the gym for the first time with guys in there twice your size. You have to remember they were once in your shoes and, if they are like me, would love to answer any questions you have.
Don't worry about the amount of weight you are using, concentrate more on form and technique this will get results much quicker.
