I had tried losing weight many times before but thinking of losing 60lbs seemed as challenging climbing Mount Everest in one go. So instead I took a different approach. My solution to climbing my Mount Everest was what we computer scientists call Divide and Conquer algorithm  *Geek Alert*  The Divide and Conquer approach is just basically breaking down the problem into smaller sub-problems until they become easy enough to solve and then once we have solved all the sub-problems we have basically solved the big problem Ta-da!!!!! lol. Ok, so you might be wondering how any of this crap helped me lose weight. Well, take the chill pill and let me explain: Instead of saying I want to lose 60lbs in a year I would say I want to lose 5lbs in 2 weeks and then work my butt off to accomplish that. Once I had accomplished that I would move to the next sub-problem and so on until finally those 60lbs were gone.  Because every sub-problem was easy enough for me to complete I always felt motivated because I felt I was accomplishing something at each step of the way. I seriously recommend giving this a try to anyone trying to lose weight. It is a LOT less scary and keeps you focused on the goal.
Good luck :)

See that guy on the left? That WAS me 4 years ago a lot has changed not only physically but mentally…see when it comes to weight loss 99% of people focus on that little number on the weight scale…see they lose track of reality…it’s not about that number because there are literally so many variables to effect that number whether it be your height, muscle mass, fat mass. I guess what I’m trying to get across is throw that scale out the window. The ONLY thing you need to focus on is being HAPPY and HEALTHY. And remember just because someone is skinny doesn’t mean they’re healthy =)
