I was morbidly obese for over 10 years. Everything I tried to lose weight for those 10 years didn’t work. So what finally happened? How was I able to finally lose my weight, all of it, all 120 pounds? I started reading everything I laid my eyes on… articles, weight loss stories, and anything at all related to health and weight loss. I researched every night. I figured I better actually learn about my body: how it works, how certain foods react to it, what kinds of processes happen inside of it. I also started studying everything involving exercise: how different types of activity affected the body, what burned the most calories, how to lift weights, how to build muscle.
I can't even tell you how many hundreds and hundreds of hours I spent reading. Every spare moment, my face was either in a book or a screen. Finally it was time to stop reading and get off my ass! It was time to put my knowledge to the test. Once I started, I found successes and failures, excitement and frustration, short-cuts and derailments... and a slew of other emotions and conditions. I've taken all of my experience and I've narrowed down my success into the four of the most valuable lessons and pieces of advice that saw me through my journey. The four things that made it possible for me to lose every bit of my weight. Believe me, I'm going to save you a shit-load of time and ass-ache by sharing this with you. Please, please learn from my mistakes.

Okay we all know how it works. You go on a diet, you lose a couple pounds, then you hit a wall, and then you quit. Or maybe you lost 30 pounds and you were happy at that, but then six months later you’ve gained 15 of it back. Or maybe as many times as you’ve tried to even start, you can really never get going. I could go on forever with the or maybes and come up with a ton of different scenarios but they all end the same… a weight loss journeys that never succeed. Why? I mean with all the efforts that we've all put in for years and years, why aren’t there more success stories?
Think about it. How many people in your life do you know who've tried to lose weight? I bet a lot. But just for shits and giggles, let’s say you only know a few. If everybody that walks the planet knows just one or two people who've tried and failed at losing weight, well, uh that’s a lot of friggin people!
So why do almost all of us fail? ...
