    Story Highlights

    Professor Muata Kamdibe weighed 310 pounds with 44 percent body fat

    At his heaviest, he felt miserable and disguted with himself and lacked confidence

    Kamdibe began counting calories and using his own body weight to work out

    He lost 133 pounds and reduced his body fat to 6.5 percent in four years

    Darn you Caslon! You beat me to it. icon_smile.gif

    Anywho....

    I appreciate how stories like this continue to show us that there are no quick fixes to losing weight and body fat once the metabolism slows. It took time to get out of shape, so it will take time to get back in shape.

    Congratulations Professor. I know it took a lot of self discipline to achieve your goal. I want to get down to about 170# from my present weight of 260#. I was 6'1" but I've lost about an inch.
    Anyway because of nightmares and PTSD my sleep gets screwed up, and I often wake up feeling sick.
    From reading here I see that I should do cardio first; so should I eat before [and what should/how much should I eat] cardio or after? I also plan to exercise on my Total Gym after cardio.
    Sincerely,
    blaine

    I love stories like this. I've never been overweight so I don't know what it's like to be big but I love hearing about how people take charge of their lives and get inshape.
