1 year on 4 Hour Body, & the results are.....


I have probably overused that word by now. I started my 4HB journey a year ago today on 12/20/2010. I did not know how long it would go, but I had to give it a run because it was time to lose weight. My blog has pretty much all the details of how I got here to this point and time, but besides the obvious changes which I talk about all the time to anyone who asks, there have been other significant changes in my life and other accomplishments since I started the 4HB.

*I was 299 pounds and now weight 222 pounds (77 down yeah!)

*I went from a 55 inch waist to a 38 inch waist

*I have NOT been sick one day since I started 4HB, not even a runny nose (could be the athletic greens)

*I have NOT thrown out my back in one full year. I used to throw out my back about three times a year. The exercises by Tim in the book work.

*I have new perspective on life that I started on 12/20/2010. I put my family first and who cares what happens in my career. The odd thing is I took an easier job at my company, because I wanted to take it easy and really have more time with my family. You have to keep in mind I was working 6 am to 7 pm pretty much 5 days a week and then I would put in another 5-10 hours on the weekend. It was definitely a demotion, to my coworkers, but what they didn't understand is I didn't care nor did I see it that way.What happened was I experienced the most growth in work skill sets and also received the biggest promotion of my career. Funny how those things work out.

*I got to meet Tim Ferris and many other awesome people at a private event that was put on by Tim. I was inspired by them to further push myself to learn more to educate myself more and become better. I was also inspired to write and dare I say I am close to finishing a short book.

So here I am one year later and feeling great. That is the short summary. If you read this and would like some help on your 4HB journey, drop me a comment. I would love to help. I have plenty of tips and ideas that can help. I consider myself an ardent practitioner of Tim's 4HB.

I have thanked Tim Ferris multiple times, but why not one more. Thanks Tim!

12-3 - Damn I gained 2 pounds!!!

..before I get to why I am mad about gaining 2 pounds, here is a quick recap from last weekend.

I stayed strong and didn't cheat on last Friday (after Thanksgiving) and lost 4 pounds, weigh in on Saturday : 228 pounds!

I crushed it on Saturday and woke up on Sunday weighing 234 pounds.

So I of course jumped back on and made it all the way unti last night (Friday) and I had about 10 pita chips. I broke down a bit, but I knew I wasn't going to beat my best of 222 pounds so I delved into a mini-cheat.

I woke up this morning and was feeling great because I was at 226 pounds!

It is about 5 pm and I am MAD!!!! I spend the whole day at my son's flag football tournament (they won and I thoroughly enjoyed it)....but damn it kind of put a crimp on my cheat day. I had my donuts..but a Subway Sandwich isn't like cheating......

So in any case, back to why I am mad. It is 5 pm and I have only gained 2 pounds. I have been cheated out of my cheat day so far. I will make it whole tonight!!! It is on like Donkey Kong!!!!
