Fat Burning Spot My Personal Success

This is my fat burning blog.

Update for December 2011

I built this site to share some of the good and not so good experiences I have had with a fat burning diet. I have also kind of been getting into some of those weight loss TV shows lately, like the biggest loser. Occasionally I share my thoughts on them also. I’ve pretty much always been fat or overweight or whatever you want to call it.

As a little background I am 33 years old I started with my current weight loss journey Mid-March of 2010. I’m 6 ft. 1 and weighed in at an embarrassing 354 pounds. As of today December 16, 2011 I weigh 235. I can’t complain 119 pounds in a little more than a year and a half. I have had some setbacks. That’s why they call it a journey I guess. Luckily thanks to the fat burning system that I follow I have been able get back on track. I assure you it is not one of those lose belly fat fast type of fads. It has definitely taken a lot of work and discipline.

I do believe my results would have been even better had it not been for the condition of my back. I was involved in a fall accident that left me with a spinal fracture and four herniated discs plus a multitude of nerve problems that leave me in fairly constant pain. This has limited the types of exercise I am able to perform. I still have not allowed this to derail my plans to lose weight. I feel that Excuses, no matter how real, cannot be allowed to let you lose sight of your fat loss goals. If you should have problems of this sort it is important to discuss your exercise program with your doctor.

A major reason for starting this blog for me was the accountability. I would definitely recommend starting a weight loss blog to help the motivation. Unfortunately I didn’t update as often as I should have. I have decided to recommit to regular updates. Truthfully I probably still won’t. I still have a considerable amount of work to do. I have had my best success in weight loss thus far following a great diet.

In these pages I have shared and will continue to discuss what I feel are the best fat burning foods and workouts. I realize that I am far from some weight loss guru. I am however someone that has firsthand experience with just how difficult weight loss can be.

Goals are a very important part of any weight loss system. I have had a great deal of trouble coming up with my actual weight loss goals. The ideal body weight for my height does not seem ideal to me. I have seen as low as 186 pounds recommended. I am not trying to get skinny, this just does not appeal to me. As it stands my goal is 210. I believe over the length of my weight loss journey that I may need to reevaluate my goal weight more than once.

Recently my friends and family have told me to stop where I am currently at. I know that they are trying to be positive. This is not helpful though. I believe we are the only ones who actually know what is good enough. I will know when I am happy with my body.

A couple things in closing. In the past I have tried but no longer use fat burning supplements of any sort. I don’t see the need for them. I feel Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle by Tom Venuto is by far the best diet there is. It is my fat loss bible. For only 40 buck it beats the price of any of the big name diet programs out there and includes everything one need to know to lose fat while retaining and even building muscle. I will get a more in depth review up at some point. I will update my progress semi regularly.

Fat Burning Worked For Me

I should probably point out that once in a while on these pages I may tend to get a bit vocal about the outright hatred for the overweight that seems to be acceptable these days. I still have work to do as I head towards goal weight. I’ll get there but I will never forget how much of a struggle fat loss has been.

I just have to say fatty haters go away. Spend some time fixing the problems with yourselves that you obviously have.

So I hope you find some value in my little fat burning diet blog. If you would like to start a weight loss journal try Blog to Lose it is a great little supportive community that allows you to blog and interact with others.


Enough Excuses Want To Lose Weight Then Do It in 2011

Don’t let excuses be the downfall of your New Year’s resolution to lose weight. As I have said many times it’s all about action. There really is no excuse for excuses. If you have decided to lose weight in 2011 do it and forget the excuses.

Believe me I know all about excuses when it comes to losing weight and just about everything else in life. When I stopped letting them sabotage me my life was changed for the better. Here are some common excuses and why they just will not fly anymore. The truth is if you want to lose weight and get in shape you need to work and work hard at it.

5 Excuses That Won’t Fly in 2011
By Tom Venuto

It’s 2011. Your old excuses for not getting in shape won’t work. As Dr. Evil (Austin Powers) said, ZIP IT! I don’t want to hear them anymore! Read em’, then haul your excuseless butt to the gym!

1. I have no time.

According to a story in a recent issue of Men’s Health magazine, Barack Obama works out for 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Obama doesn’t just play basketball either. Our new president stays fit to lead with cardio and weight lifting. He also says he wishes he could train 90 minutes a day. Have you ever seen what the daily schedule of a U.S. president looks like? If the busiest man in the world can train every day for 45 minutes a day, then what’s your excuse? ZIP IT! You ain’t got one!

2. It’s too expensive.

Getting in shape certainly is expensive… if you keep wasting hundreds of dollars, month after month on worthless “miracle” weight loss pills, internal cleansing gimmicks and “magic” potions that all claim to make you slim. Deceptive advertising and slick marketing for bogus diet aids is more rampant than ever. 2010 was the year of thewu-long tea scam, the acai berry scam, and, of course, the ubiquitous “cleansing” and “detox” gimmicks . Unless you put on your critical thinking cap and learn to investigate before you invest, then you’ll get scammed by 2011’s flavor of the year as well. Your quest for those elusive “6-pack” abs will not only continue to be expensive, you’ll go broke. Walking, jogging, calisthenics and body weight exercises are FREE. If you want to know what’s really expensive, tally up the cost of legitimate expenses like natural food, gym memberships, fitness education, dumbbells and so on, and compare that to your doctor’s bill when you’re sick.

3. No one will support me.

Experts on social influence say your income will be approximately equal to the average of your 5 closest friends. Not only do I think that’s pretty darn accurate, I also believe that your health is your greatest wealth, and your physical condition will be about equal to the average of your 5 closest friends. It’s a real challenge to stay positive, focused and active when you’re surrounded by critical people and negative influences. However, in 2011, lack of support is no longer a valid excuse. Online social networking is exploding (check out Twitter and Facebook ) and more IN PERSON friendships and associations are being made from an internet connection than ever before. Training buddies can be found online. Connect with them. Mentors and coaches are easily found online. Hire them. Support forums have been around for years. Use them. No support from your current friends? Stop whining, start reaching out and go make new ones. In 2011, support partners and new friends are just a click away.

4. I can’t lose weight because of my genetics.

The marvels of modern medical and biological research are astonishing. Our top scientists have mapped the human genome! In the past few years, numerous genes linked to obesity have been discovered. However, the obesity epidemic we’re facing today has only developed over the past 50 years and genetic mutations that lead to serious obesity are extremely rare. Genetic predisposition only means that you have a tendency. It’s when the genetics meet lifestyle and environment that the genes express themselves. If you have a family history of heart disease, is it smart to smoke, eat junk, be a stressed-out, type-A maniac and a couch potato? Well of course not, and it’s the same with obesity. If you have a tendency predisposing you towards obesity, you’d better be the person doing the MOST exercise, not the least. You’d better be the person paying the MOST attention to your nutrition. You’d better be the person with the healthiest lifestyle. But unfortunately, it’s usually the opposite. Most people throw up their arms in frustration saying, “what’s the use, I was dealt a bad hand.” Sorry. That won’t fly in 2011. The latest research says genetics are a factor, but a tendency is not a destiny!

5. I don’t know how.

The lamest excuse of them all in 2011 is “I don’t know how.” NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO DO ANYTHING UNTIL AFTER THEY HAVE ACTUALLY DONE IT! Ponder that for a while. You don’t need to know how at first. To get started, you only need to know WHAT… what is the goal? Setting well-formed goals is the master skill of success. Not wishy-washy resolutions that have no resolve behind them, but real goals. In writing. With emotional ooompf! As you continue to affirm, visualize and focus on your goal with clarity, belief, and expectation, your new goal or intention will be received by your subconscious. Once a goal is accepted into your subconscious mind, your brain, being a goal-seeking mechanism, will turn on your attention filters to seek out all the information you will ever need to reach your goal. It will also turn on an infallible navigation system to guide you to your goal like a torpedo to its target. As your brain guides your attention, your direction and your behavior, you will discover that today, in 2011, there is more good information, coaching and instruction available than ever before. And when you’ve activated that “success radar” in your brain by setting goals effectively, it’s not as hard to find honest, accurate and helpful HOW-TO advice as you might think. In fact, you found this webpage, so you’re doing pretty good right now, aren’t you?

No more excuses. In 2011, remember my Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle Creed: You can either make excuses or get results, but you can’t do both!

Your friend and coach,

Tom Venuto
