Hello Friends, Fans and Foes,
I have been training now for four full days and have already lost 10 pounds. I started at 303 pounds and now I'm down to 293 pounds. I never thought that I would say I'm down to 293!
I attribute the credit to my personal trainer Ken Cutcher from Anytime Fitness. I think he is the perfect fit for me because he is an extremely energetic guy who keeps my big butt moving. I have worked out with him three times thus far and plan to meet with him three times a week from now until the end.
I think at first he overestimated my strength because of my size, but when you haven't really worked out for years, then you lose that strength and endurance. I could see the look on his face when I couldn't do some of the weights or even stretches he asked me to perform. But being the professional that he is, he changed his strategy and seems to be getting a little more out of me.
As far as my diet goes, I've been totally faithful. I finally took the advice of almost every health magazine I ever read by measuring out my portions and eating foods that are high in protein and less sugars and fats.
Anytime Fitness has a computer program for its members that allows you to track your diet and fitness activity. What the program does is track what you are eating good and what you are eating bad so you can eliminate the nonhealthy food sources.
I know the first several pounds will be easy to lose because I'm enjoying exercising and the quick results, but we'll see if Ken can keep me motivated when the fun and excitement of the contest wears off. Good luck Ken.
Thanks for the support. Yours truly,
Troy Keegan (Go Blue Streaks)
