How I lost over 50 lbs

I Lost over 50 lbs in 5 months

This may not happen for you but this is what worked for me.

I want to first say that there is no such thing as a magic pill, a 30 day workout, or a special drink that is going to magically make the weight disappear. It just isn’t going to happen like that. These things may help you in your journey to becoming a healthier you but it is still going to require a lifestyle change. I lost my 50 lbs just like everyone else that loses their weight, with hard work and dedication.

Here is how I lost over 50lbs. I started off back in the fall of 2015 wanting to change my life. I wanted to become healthier. I realized I was 37 about to be 38 and something just clicked. I decided I wasn’t going to continue to eat fast food, drink energy drinks and eat all these unnecessary calories just because I wanted to. I started looking around to find a quick fix. Really that was what I was looking for. I heard a lot of people talk about thrive, fit sticks, and then I heard someone mention the 21-day fix. I thought to myself 21 days, sounds perfect, I can do that.  So I went ahead a bought it online from someone’s website and a few days later is showed up on my doorstep.

Here is the first way I tried to loose 50 lbs

The 21 day fix Diet

I was excited I couldn’t wait to get home and open it. When I opened it I realized it was more than just videos and portioning your food out. It came with this book that had all the foods in it that you could choose from to eat. This meant I was going to have to go grocery shopping. I waited until the following week before I started. I picked out the easiest things that didn’t require any cooking or preparation. Remember I was looking for easy. The food wasn’t bad. There was actually a lot of food when it came down to it. See you don’t realize it but when you are eating unhealthy you are actually eating a lot of unnecessary calories. The trick is to eat smaller portions more frequently.

The 21 day fix videos

The videos were great. The first week I think I lost 8 lbs. I would eat right all day then do the videos when I got home and in the morning I would weigh myself. I was losing weight every day and it was awesome to see. You can’t do just one or the other, though. They work hand and hand. The first four days it was easy to stay on track. Then when Friday hit it was hard because I get home so late from work on Friday that I wouldn’t feel like doing the video. I skipped it. Then Saturday came along and I skipped it. Sunday I had to do three videos to catch up to where I was supposed to be. I was still losing weight just not as much as I should have been.

I did it for 2 and half weeks and I lost 22 lbs. I gave up and went right back to the same weight I was before I started.

February 2o16

I decided I was going to make a change I tried fit sticks. They didn’t work for me like they work for some people. Not everything is going to work the same for every person. For some people fit sticks work, for some people it is the 21-day fix. It is whatever works for you.

My true turning point 

March 1, 2016, I decided it was time to make a lifestyle change. I went and got a gym membership at our local gym. I started off I was going once a day 7 days a week. I was started to lose weight. Then I decided I wanted to see a big change so I started looking into different supplements to use. To see the supplements I use click here. I also started going twice a day to the gym 5 days a week and once a day on the weekends.

My diet

Changed my diet dramatically. Went from eating at least 3 to 4000 calories of unhealthy food to 1500 calories of high protein foods. I eat a lot of fish, chicken, and tuna. I drink a protein shake after every workout. I stock up on high protein snacks that I can eat throughout the day. One thing I ate a lot of was watermelon this summer. Watermelon is a good food to eat if you’re trying to loose weight.

Weight Loss

My weight fell off pretty consistently every week. Every week I lost anywhere between 2 to 8 lbs depending on the week. My goal was to loose 50 lbs. I have accomplished that goal and am now working on losing another 26 lbs to put me at an even 200 lbs. Last time I checked I was at 17% body fat. My goal is to be at about 10% body fat.

Goals are important to set. If you don’t have goals set in your life you really have no starting point. the key to setting a goal is to make it obtainable. Don’t make your goal so it is impossible to reach. This does you know good because you will just give up.
