Why I Got Started
It all started back in 6th grade when I was getting a little chunky, and it progressed as time went by. By 7th grade, I was overweight. I didn't really notice it much, but other kids did. I would get made fun with immature fat jokes, mostly by my own friends. They thought it was funny, but I didn't. After that, my parents approached me about it. Suddenly looked in the mirror and noticed I was a mess, and I had to change my body before it got even worse. The first step you have to take in order to achieve your fitness goals is to realize why you need to change, you actually have to tell yourself that you're not in top physical shape.
How I Did It
From the end of 8th grade, it was time to make a change. I started off dieting, but it just didn't work because I was trying to do it all alone. I had a talk with my mom, and she happened to have a friend who was into all the dieting and exercising programs because he himself used to be overweight. He gave me a dieting guide to follow, and I followed it correctly. I started noticing changes, and within about 3 months I dropped 20 pounds. But my next problem was that I had little muscle mass on me.
Now I started thinking about lifting weights to get even more fit. I got a gym card at my local gym and I researched a good workout plan that best fit my schedule. Then I needed some supplements to assist my gains. I started off with some protein and a multivitamin. Once I picked up the weights, I never stopped. I love getting in the gym and feeling that alpha-male mentality. Within 6 months, I transformed my chubby body into a fit and sculpted figure that I am extremely proud of. I will keep working out and trying to achieve every fitness goal I have. I love bodybuilding, it changed my life forever.
