I’m Steve. I’ve somehow made it to my mid 40′s relatively unscathed. During that time, I’ve been in pretty good shape; at about 6’2″, 190lbs, and about 10% body fat. I skied, biked, played volleyball, and lifted weights regularly and had for years. Well, that was then….. Actually that was in my early 30′s. After that things went a bit downhill. One thing that didn’t go downhill was my belly, which was doing it’s best Mt. Everest impersonation. I got married, bought a business, and had 2 wonderful kids. Somewhere in the course of all this commotion, I forgot about working out, eating right, and fitness in general.
I packed on about 35 lbs. Unfortunately, it was worse than just gaining fat, as I’d picked the same time to completely avoid any semblence of weight training too. About 15lbs of hard earned muscle evaporated, seemingly overnight. That means I was sporting about 50 lbs of excess fat, due to inactivity, lack of training, and a diet that would not be out of place on “Supersize Me”.
After about 8 years of doing blimp impersonation I decided that being so fat really sucked and it was time to drop some weight. I made some different diet lifestyle choices and “poof!”, about 35lbs went by the wayside. I’ve been in my mid 190′s ever since. I’m going to help show you what I did and what I found out so that you can do the same thing.
Have I gotten back in the gym too? Well, not so much. Ski any more? Sure, once every 5 years. I’m sure many of you out there can relate. But you can drop the weight. Really. It doesn’t have to be nearly as hard as you think, either. At belly Fat Loser I’ll post tips, ideas, the latest research and recipes to help you on your journey back. I’ll focus on things for busy professionals, such as business owners, salespeople, and others who’s days are crammed full of presentations, meetings, travel, entertaining clients, and family, leaving little time for fitness. You can find more time than you think, though, so here goes….
