How I Lost 100 Pounds In 100 Days…

Why are some people fat, and some people not?

That’s the question I was asking myself. I was at rock bottom at 19 years old. I weighed 350 lbs and was miserable. I started gaining weight when I was sixteen, so I had been pretty darn fat for a while now… I didn’t have any energy at all. My health was failing and I couldn’t participate in a normal life and do the things everyone else could. Honestly it was a lot of work to get up and walk around the house.

I didn’t have a girlfriend. In fact, I HAD NEVER KISSED A GIRL! I was so ugly and unattractive I would make girls cringe just by looking at me, It just wasn’t going to happen. And I knew it. At most it was “Let’s just be friends”.


Of course, I didn’t have a date to prom

I hated the way I looked and was embarrassed and ashamed of my body. I was known as THE FAT GUY amongst my friend and everyone looked down on me as like a lazy slob and a pig. They assumed that because I’m fat I must not be able to control what I eat. I KNEW THEY WERE WRONG! I had tons of skinny ass bastard friends who ate way more CRAP than I did, yet never got fat! They just didn’t understand…

My friends would all try to give me advice, but they just didn’t understand what it was like for me. I knew I had a problem, but I didn’t do anything about it for a while. But then something happened…

I tried, but I failed…

I was so depressed and miserable that I really didn’t enjoy life. I decided to try to atkin’s diet. And it worked… for a while. I lost 26 lbs in a month or so of doing it, but I just couldn’t stick with it. It was too hard and too strict. I couldn’t deal with it, especially having trouble giving up drinking beer. So I gave up… and I gained all the weight back plus more! It sucked!

Time went by and I had tried a few other things, including a exercise machine off TV/some diet pills and none of it worked. My parent’s even paid $1000 for a personal trainer program that promised that I would lose the weight. He just didn’t know what it was like to be as FAT as I was.

He thought just cause he went to personal training school and lost a few pounds that he KNEW IT ALL. He thought I was fat just cause I couldn’t control my mouth and that I was just a fat lazy hog. He just didn’t understand. He’d never been in my shoes and would never get it… When I stopped showing up he tried to call, but eventually he stopped calling and my parents ended up wasting $1000. I felt GREAT! Yeah Right!

I started to accept that I would be fat forever

I was ready to give up. I was so depressed that I was just about to accept that I will BE FAT FOREVER. It was a horrible thought, but I give up. I started getting drunk every single day to numb the pain I was feeling. I figured that I’ll never have a girlfriend and I started researching russian mail order brides on the internet. I was at my lowest point….


I hated my life and wanted to die

I realized at that point I was either going to have to lose the weight and die trying or just give up and kill myself right now. I made a decision that would forever change the course of my life. I chose to lose the weight. I decided that “IF IT IS TO BE, IT’S UP TO ME!” And that I was going to do WHATEVER IT TAKES! even if it killed me…

Then I met a man who changed my life… His name was Brian Tracy. He talked about positive thinking and goal setting. He told me that failure is a good thing. It’s a required feedback for success in anything in life. That was very empowering to me because my whole life was a series of failures. I realized that they weren’t failures because I learned exactly what doesn’t work each time. Each time getting one step closer to what does work. I realized that I was now ahead of the game and close to figuring it out…

I set a date in the future to start my diet… I realized that was a mistake I had already made before. And it caused me to fail. But now, with my new mindset, I realized that it wasn’t a failure because it taught me a valuable lesson: The only time to start dieting and exercising is RIGHT NOW. I realized that’s the only time I really have control over is right now. The past and present are just mental pictures. So I started immediately doing what I knew worked… eating healthy and exercising everyday.

I was right, It wasn’t my fault that I was fat

I read some more about dieting and realized that I was right! It wasn’t my fault for being fat. I mean I don’t believe in a lot of conspiracies but I think this one is real. The government and certain big corporations want you to be fat and unhealthy. They are putting a bunch of crap and poison into our food and covering it up. So that they come to save the day with all kinds of magic pills that help the problems these poisons cause.

The government puts out just plain wrong information on healthy eating. I found out the food pyramid is a total scam. After reading dozens of popular diet books I realized there are so many scammers in the diet industry too just trying to resell “diet and exercise” programs over and over again when they don’t work. Just remember: It’s not your fault. But you can do something about it NOW!

After I figured this out and read some more, I read about eating a caveman diet eating foods that humans evolved to eat. It’s based on the fact that there were certain foods that humans didn’t eat until 10,000 years ago. Which is pretty recent in evolutionary terms. So humans just haven’t evolved to be able to handle these highly processed sugary and starchy foods that are part of our modern diet.

So, I started eating a Caveman style diet full of meat, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. I didn’t starve myself by any means… I started exercising everyday on the elliptical machines, because it wasn’t hard on my knees as walking. And I actually started to enjoy exercise and the natural high I would get after a workout…

The results were coming in…The fat was literally melting off…

I started losing about 5-10 pounds a week… and after a month I had lost 37 lbs! I was loving every minute of it! It was like a miracle how easy this was. I loved the natural high I started getting from exercise. 2 months after the start date I had lost 69 lbs. And in a little over 3 months(about 100 days) I lost 100lbs exactly. I went from 340 at the start to 240 in 100 days. It was like magic…

The whole process was incredibly fun too! I did not starve myself at all. It was a hell of a lot more fun going on this adventure and living the way I do now, than my previous life of depression and misery.. Over the next few months I kept up my routine and lost even more weight. And I still eat healthy and exercise regularly today.

Finally, Success! I’m free at last!

I’m not a perfect body builder type or anything, I don’t want to be. But I’m not obese anymore and I enjoy life. I have started to date women for the first time and I’m having the time of my life. I actually had 2 different girls that I didn’t know ask me out on dates and give me their numbers recently. That’s a first!

I have 10 times the energy and physical mobility now. I can do things that I always wanted to do like dancing and martial arts. I go hiking in the woods and camping a lot, and when I was huge, I would have never been able to do stuff like that.
