Bio

I'm a 6'2" 33 year old father and husband. I am losing weight and my goal weight currently is 220 pounds. I know that sounds like a lot, but, I really do have a large frame and I also have a lot of lean mass.

I started on my fitness journey when I reached a hefty sum of 300 pounds. I vowed to myself and my family that I would get in shape and stay in shape. My wife and I joined LA Fitness on March of 2011. I started with cleaning up my diet and doing cardio.

However, I noticed that I was losing weight, but my stomach and pudgy areas were not improving. I discovered I was losing muscle mass and not fat mass. I added weight lifting to my gym time. I started with a program called Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe. On June of 2011, I started this program with the following weights: Squats: 185; Bench Press: 135; Deadlift: 225; Rows: 135.

As of January of 2012 my lifting numbers are: Squats: 345; Bench Press: 235; Deadlift: 405; Rows: 210

This program was very successful and now I am embarking on a new program called Mad Cows.

My current weight as of 2012-01-24 is: 242. I've lost 58 pounds so far and I have 22 pounds to go. I am only losing about 0.75 to 1.25 pounds a week now.

Weight lifting, eating right and sleeping right has led me here so far. I am going to reach my goal weight this year and it's going to be awesome!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
