Before & After

By Jack Haynes | In Blog

So the last twelve weeks have been challenging, but totally worth it.  Did I win the contest?  No, but I did win my challenge to myself.  I lost 12 pounds and dropped 8% bodyfat.  Is that normal?  Not usually.  Depending upon body type and where your starting point is, I typically see no more than 1% drop per month.  The bare naked truth is – to see extreme results you have to make extreme changes.

How did I do it?

I cranked my workouts into high gear, I forced myself to get back into cardio and the big one……I started eating right again.  Now that I’ve started the habit, it isn’t hard to keep going.

You can do this too!  Find a source of motivation that’s effective for you, whether it be a picture, an event, or someone like me to keep you accountable.

“Before and After” isn’t a one-time thing, it’s a way of life.  Self improvement should never stop.  So get up and challenge yourself!

    I agree. We need to set goals and reach them… But we must also retain them. Think of it like a championship. You want to wear the belt? Put in the work! I find the best motivation for me is seeing old clothes i once fit in and clothes I plan on fitting in in the future.

    This is totally the right way to do it. I do have something to motivate me all the time. I have a short video clip of a gym trainer that I always follow. I really love how lean the body of this trainer is and I always watch this most of the time to keep reminding myself of all the exercises that I need to do in order to keep fit.

    Really motivating! I just started yesterday a new exercise routine where I am really pushing myself. I hate it while I’m doing it, but afterward my body just feels better and I can’t wait until my next exercise day. I lost 45 pounds last year….kind of stopped workin at it but now I’m determined to lose the last 20 pounds. 🙂

    This post made me think about challenging myself too. I would love to lose some pounds but I don’t know where to start yet. Old habits are really hard to forget but I hope I can discipline myself for diet and exercise.
