3 months ago on June 1st I started a weight loss competition challenge. I initially weighed in at 234.4 pounds. I started a diet of only meat, fruit, and veggies right at the beginning, and stuck with it the entire way through. My liquids were black coffee and water. The challenge just ended; on September 1st I weighed in at 187.6 pounds and won the competition. I lost a total of 46.8 pounds. In addition to the diet, I worked out extremely hard, lifting weights for over an hour a day 6 days a week with 1 rest day, and sometimes would do a water fast on my rest day.
