84 Days In 48 Seconds: Weight Loss Time Lapse

Where I am Today – http://www.RTP-Blog-2.com

Song: Better
Artist: Guns N Roses

AS SEEN In Mens Fitness US Edition & On TV in Japan which has used the “time-lapse” portion of this video in a 5-minute profile on my fast weight loss journey that was broadcast on national TV to 5,000,000 people.

They filmed me in my house taking a daily picture, in the gym and eating clean! If you want to watch this clip go to my blog listed above.

The reason I am saying this here is because of the “it’s fake” comments I get. If you watch the TV clip you will see that I am a “real person” and I really do train and eat clean to get the results I have. *Due to Copyright this TV clip cannot be uploaded to YouTube but you can watch it at http://www.RTP-Blog-2.com

THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS VIDEO: First and foremost I want to thank the overwhelmingly positive feedback and comments to this video.

Secondly, I am not “special” and neither is the transformation. Thousands of people all over the world do this kind of thing all the time (myself included, 7 years ago). This transformation has more to do with the mind than the body. The body is merely a physical representation of your daily thoughts and actions.

Anyway, a lot of people have commented on the “unbelievable” fat loss from my first picture in black shorts and my official Day 1 picture. Just to clear it up, if you watch the video closely you can clearly see that I state that the first picture is from July 2003.

My “Day 1” picture is 3 and a half years later on November 8, 2006 as evidenced by the date on the newspaper (which you can see in the video clearly if you pause it.)

The primary goal of taking pictures and blogging every day was not to make a video. The reason why I started this project was a way of holding myself accountable. 7 years ago I was in shape, then I lost the plot big-time.

I then spent 6 years overweight and at times bordering on obese like in the picture from July 2003. Trust me, I have enough “before pictures” to fill a family album.

This time I decided to try something different. Take a picture every day (except for a few rest days). Taking a picture every day motivated me to push through the pain barrier every workout because I knew I had to take a picture that evening.

Now of course, once I finished the 12 weeks I was proud of my achievement and I did have a new-found confidence after 6 years of being out of shape. The reason I put this “time lapse compliation” video on YouTube was in the hope it could inspire some people out there who are overweight and want to change their life. This video does not promote anything, except for taking massive action on your dreams!

This transformation is consistent with eating clean and working out hard. It is not amazing, nor is it rocket science. But there are no “magic bullets”, no supplements and no “secret workout routines” that will do the job for you.
