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.
