    Hard Lesson: Patience and Effort are Key

    I've had a BodyBuilding account for God knows how long and I never really used it until this year. Something inside me was just tired of being overweight and I snapped. I'm about 5'11" and I weigh 275 lbs, carried mostly on my chest and abdomen. I've tried to get in shape a few times, even purchasing some supplements to force myself to commit, to no avail. It's been about seven weeks since I really started making an honest effort again (using up my leftover supplements) and I'm finally seeing results.

    Since reading up on building muscle while losing fat, I put some money into a gym membership. My wife is also a great motivator: There were a few days I made excuses not to go and she reminded me why I purchased a membership in the first place. I'm not doing any crazy diets (or even the normal ones). In a nutshell, I decided to swap out some carbs for protein and listen to my body when I'm eating at a slower pace — I eat until I feel satiated, not stuffed. Before someone tells me I'm not going to see any results doing this: I started out at 285 lbs earlier this year, I've seen some muscle growth, and I've experienced some visible fat loss (though it's only a little so far).

    When I looked in the mirror that one morning, I finally understood why so many of us are on this forum and in the gym: It's freaking awesome!

    I don't know if anyone needs to hear this, but I know I did: Keep at it — these things take time. If you're having an issue with supplements, you might not have one that works for you. I wasn't using a protein that worked for me when I gave up in the past. I also didn't consider how I was using other supplements back then. But now, I've got a protein power that works great for me. I also just ordered some other supplements that I'm confident are going to help push me even further.

    Baby steps, my friends. It took me five years to learn that giving an honest (and consistent), no BS effort and being patient was the key to my own success. I can't wait to have some more dramatic pics to share in the future.
