Brandon’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
When I was younger, around the 5th grade, I packed on a few pounds. I weighed about 140 and ended up being the fattest kid in my class. I stayed chubby until I was in 11th grade.
What made you decide to lose weight?
In high school, being chubby didn’t always work with the ladies and I wasn’t very good looking. So, one day I just quit drinking soda altogether and that helped me some. Then I just went from there.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
I changed everything! The way I ate and I started lifting weights every day. I also drank only water.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
It wasn’t that hard actually. You get past the first few weeks and you’re fine. Most people just can’t handle those 2-3 weeks getting used to it.
How long did it take you to start to see results?
1-2 weeks. I worked out really hardcore.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
It took about 2 months to lose 30 pounds.
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
I have maintained it for about a year and a half now. I have been working out and I’ve gained about 10 pounds of lean muscle from it. So, I’m getting pretty big!
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
My whole life has changed! My confidence for sure. I don’t get embarrassed anymore. I am great looking and I cant get the girls off of me! I tan now and I grew my hair out. I look like a surfer boy at the beach! My body is getting toned and I’m still working hard on it. It’s not perfect like those models in the magazines but perfect bodies do not come overnight. If you want any advice, it would be to follow all the workouts here on ShapeFit.com! Workout every day but do not work the same muscles twice in a row. Give them time to rest. Eat clean and have confidence. It is hard work but it is worth it. It makes you will feel 10 times better. Trust me!
How did ShapeFit help you reach your weight loss goals?
ShapeFit.com has allowed me to find new ab workouts and they have helped a lot! I appreciate them making this helpful website. It’s one of the best I have seen. Most web sites don’t give you animated pictures showing what to do when you workout.
