Losing Weight Fast The Easiest Way Possible
In my first post to my amazing new health and fitness blog I want to talk about how to lose weight extremely fast by using Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, the Atkins diet and smart thinking. Yes like most people these days I myself have had a terrible time losing weight over the years. Living in the states most of my adult life I have come to realize why most American’s are so overweight. Growing up in Germany we didn’t have a shortage of food but yet we didn’t eat to much either.
Its not that the food was bad but it wasn’t so addicting that we would eat to much, we look forward to our meals but yet we had more appreciation for are food. It’s hard to say in words but it felt like a sin if we ate to much. We could over eat if we wanted to but we waited for our meal times before we would eat anything, we never ate a snack or got up at night and raided the fridge. Maybe something to do with our parents and the war, it seemed that they looked at meals as a blessing and us children looked at it the same way they did.
And I think that is the case for people in Europe, plus fast fatty foods is not such a big thing in Europe as it is in America, well at least not yet but I think it is getting to that point soon. But once I moved to America when I was 22 that slowly started to change, There was delicious fatty foods around every corner, tons of fatty snacks at your finger tips. Over time I really started to gain weight, by the time I was 30 I was at least 30 to 40 pounds over weight.
My family and cousins back over seas could not believe how big I had gotten. Once my mom told me I was fat is when it really hit me, I knew I needed to lose weight, besides I still wasn’t even married yet. I wasn’t unattractive but if the time came that I meat the right women I didn’t want her to be thrown off by me being overweight. The first diet I cam across was the Atkins diet, it was very hard to stick to but I did pretty good and was slowly losing the weight. But it was not fast enough, that’s when I knew I needed to start doing exercises and fitness programs together with my Atkins diet.
For some reason I loved the idea of fitness DVDs, I did not want to go outside and jog or go to the gym, I guess I was kind of shy when I was starting out. I heard great things about Jillian Michaels 30 day shred from you tube videos and websites like 30 day shred before and after pictures that shows all the amazing before and after pictures of people who have had great success with her workouts. But I was not ready for what was in store, this workout is extremely tough and very hard to do.
I had no choice to start doing a fitness plan if I wanted to lose the weight fast. The first time I did the 30 day shred I went all out and thought I was going to die by a heart attack. So keep note of that, when first starting the 30 day shred or any other exercise go slow in the beginning and work your way up. It took me two months of dedicated hard work to get back down to my normal weight, and there is no doubt to me that it was a miracle. I don now why I was so determined to lose weight, maybe when my mom saw me and barely recognized me as well as my cousins laughing at me.
I guess family can play a big role in motivation. Ever since I lost the weight I have kept it off through smart eating and fitness DVDs. My next thing I want to work on is Jillian Michaels ab exercises, I want to start working on getting a little buff, not to buff, but some nice firm muscles to make the lady’s feint when they see me at the beach with some rock hard abs, o how I wish. But that’s all it took was motivation, exercise plan and a good diet. I still do the Atkins diet but since I am down to my normal weight I enjoy a nice fatty cheeseburger every now and then, I just don’t over due it. And if I do I make sure I burn it off as fast as i can with hard core fitness training, it’s not hard to pop in DVD and do a good workout.
