Learning how to lose 100 pounds isn’t the same as dieting to lose 10 or 20 pounds, it’s actually a very different journey.  Yes weight loss is the common denominator between these two goals but the numerator (10 vs. 100) requires solving these two equations in very different ways.

If you want to lose 100 pounds or more, you’ll have to be prepared for a long term journey that involves lifestyle change, psychological challenge, patience and perseverance.  Most likely you’ll have to overcome injuries, self-esteem issues, & you’ll work twice as hard as you thought you’d have to for twice as long. (sounds appealing right?)

One way to gain an understanding of what it really takes to lose 100 pounds is by talking with people who have already conquered this challenge.  I personally haven’t faced the challenge of losing 100 pounds, but I have a friend who has.  In looking at this picture it may be hard to imagine that my friend Lloyd figured out (on his own) how to lose 100 pounds, but he did. 

In the following series of videos, I interviewed Lloyd asking questions about his 100 pound weight loss journey.  Each of the videos goes over a slightly different aspect of how he found success.  In this first video, Lloyd describes how he found something that motivated him to make a change. (sound good, video not that good, I am amateur)

Videos 2, & 3 describe what Lloyd did to get started and how he stayed motivated.  In the 4th video, I asked a friend and client of mine, Becca Cheezum, to ask Lloyd some questions about how he handled the ups and downs of losing and gaining some back while on his journey.

Now that you know what it’s going to take to lose 100 pounds or more, you can get started creating your own fitness exercise program, map out your journey and then get started ASAP!  Getting started is half the battle!
