When I started my journey almost a year ago, I never had excuses for how I looked, I took responsibility for how fat I had gotten. I knew it was poor eating habits, and lack of exercise. I had no one to blame but myself for letting myself go. I weighed in at 205 before starting, now I am at 129.2. I do not plan on going lower because most of me is muscle and I sure as hell don't want to lose those lol. Now that I have taken a new approach of my lifestyle, it gets on my nerves when I hear people ask me how I did it, and then I hear the excuses come from their mouth as to why they can't do what i did to lose the weight. If you thought it was a magic pill or something along those "miracle" diets, your mistaken. It's DETERMINATION, WILLPOWER, and the WANT, the NEED to get back into shape. It also irritates me when people think I must have just stopped eating or something to lose the weight. No, if that was the case, I would have a lot of skin slack and not have these muscles I have now.I eat more than you can imagine or even think about. Excuses are irritating and annoying, and if you don't have the WANT or the NEED, or the MIND FRAME, then don't waste my time. Now, certain people that have asked me what I did and asked for my workout routine, and when I see on my Facebook page that they lost 48 pounds in 4 months, it makes me happy and excited for them, because 1) they are making a big difference in their life and feeling good, and 2) they didn't waste my time.
Now here are my before and afters:
- Halloween 2011 @ goal weight
- Christmas still at goal weight
- July 2011 10 pounds to goal weight
