Scott’s Weight Loss Story!
When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I became unhappy in June of 2013.
What made you decide to lose weight?
I wanted to look and feel better.
What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Eating habits and exercise. Quitting alcohol entirely was very important. I wrote a 5 part series for ShapeFit about losing weight after 50 which covers the five important factors that helped me lose weight and be successful!
What was most challenging about losing weight?
Nothing actually. It was easy!
How long did it take you to start to see results?
The first week I was down 7 pounds.
How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
What keeps you motivated to continue your weight loss success?
My lifestyle change which I chronicled in a book I’m writing.
How has your life changed now that you’ve lost weight?
More people notice me now and I get comments on my physique (mainly my muscles).
Do you have any advice for others who are trying to lose weight?
Make it fun and a permanent part of your daily routine. Don’t go for temporary gimmicks as you will just gain the weight back.
How did ShapeFit help you reach your weight loss goals?
ShapeFit.com gives me the inspiration to keep going. Posting progress photos on Facebook helps too. Get a workout buddy even if it’s online and in another state.

Scott’s Weight Loss Workouts!
About 75% of my fitness routine consists of weight training. I breakup my training into these workouts:
- Chest and triceps
- 500 reps of various floor exercises
- 100 reps of twists with resistance
Only about 25% of my fitness program consists of cardiovascular training. I do elevation stair climbing and trail hiking. My cardio is low impact with no running and I don’t touch my heels when descending stairs.
