After a long bout with severe de-motivation I am back to working out and eating in a more responsible manner. I was in a funk for a while and just could not seem to shake out of it. I am motivated and ready to make some changes to my lifestyle and habits so I can get fit and healthy. I have switched to strictly water and have gone low carb. I have been going fairly strong for about 2 weeks and have dropped a decent amount of weight. I started out at 258 and I am down to 241. I am working out at the gym 3 to 4 days per week. I do atleast 30 minutes of cardio 3 days per week and lift weights atleast 4 days per week. I hope to get a little more motivated and increase the amount I work out so I can drop even more weight and get fit. This is the first time I have ever lifted weights. I have heard from several reliable sources that weightlifting is a good tool to help increase metabolism and burn fat. I really want to be able to have the self confidence to walk around with no shirt on in the near future.
