On June 23rd 2014, I weighed 174 lbs. On Dec 24th I weighed 125 lbs. It was a steady 2 lbs loss of weight each week, more or less.
I did not follow any special diet, like no carbohydrates, paleo, etc. There was no weight watchers or hitting the gym.
In fact I never once went to the gym the entire time except to check my weight on one occasion.
Moat folks who know me well, were not sure why I needed to lose any weight. I had a foot problem, though because of very poor footwear decisions which forced me to lose weight or stop playing sports. I chose to lose weight.
There’s one secret though. It was my discipline. Plain and simple.
I used two apps, recommended by my sister. One to measure my food intake and another to track my running.
First, I reduced my food intake from 2200 calories daily to 1500 calories daily over a 3 week period.
Second, I started running, starting at 1.5 miles daily to now consistently doing 13-15 miles daily.
Finally, I started to fast, all day on Thursdays. I only drank water. Starting with drinking only juices to milk and then over 4 weeks to nothing but water.
That’s it. I did not spend any money on diets, food, gym memberships or fancy weight loss programs.
Over 25 weeks of this helped me get down to 125lbs.
