Losing Weight Was Hard As Hell
Before I had decided to lose weight, I was a tired +200 pounds. Starting wasn't easy. Although I have had gone though stupid crash diets and was thin at some moments of my life (due to disordered eating), I made a point to lose weight the hard, old-fashioned way.
And that shit wasn't easy.
After starting on the elliptical, I soon realized I had to do far more than just 20 minutes of moving my legs. Initially, I lost about 10 pounds from the elliptical, because I want from doing nothing, to doing something.
But when I had slimmed down the "old-fashioned" way, I was so damn active. At first I hated every single minute of it.

Examples of Exercises I Was Doing Daily:

+ Sprinting (Interval training)
+ HIIT body weight exercises
+ Weight training
~ I was jogging maybe 3 times a week (I hated this the most)
I was spending about 2 hours working out

Examples of Daily Activity:

+ Walking a couple of miles to school
+ Taking stairs instead of elevators
+ Walking to run errands
+ During the summers, I went swimming often

Examples of My Eating:

+ I was meal prepping
+ No more soda, juice, sugar
+ No more processed foods
+ I was basically just eating meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and beans
I did eat allooooottttttt, but I my food choices were pretty healthy

It wasn't easy at all, but I did eventually learn to love being active. I felt so refreshed, alive, and I felt like a SUPERWOMAN. My body was able to do things I never though it could.

Was it a walk a park?
....Nahhhhhhh. NOPE.

For those who have successfully lost weight, bulked up, or become more active...what was/is your story?

Awesome. I hear you about the cardio. People hate it so much but it can't supercharge weight loss. It's all about the breathing focus. Once you can learn to control breathing, you will make quantum leaps.
