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!
