Skin In The Game: How Jeff Lost Over 30 Pounds In My Inner Circle

fitness motivation

Losing 30 pounds is no easy feat. Perhaps you may be trying to lose a significant amount of weight but have struggled over and over in the past.

I’ve consistently written about the proper workout plans, how to lose fat, counting macros, how to determine your maintenance calories, bulking, even how to hire an online fitness coach.

I’ve also written about how to change and build the health habits that serve your fitness goals, to make your fitness goals much more accessible.

But just having this information is NOT enough.

What Losing 13 Pounds in 8 Months Can Teach You About What It Takes To Transform Your Body



When you’re trying to get swole, jacked, lean, toned, diced, ripped…whatever the goal, everyone has one thing in common: EXPECTATIONS.

Body transformation is the number one goal that comes in on my coaching application form.

And it’s for good reason… everyone wants to lose fat, increase their muscle mass, and feel great doing it.

And with all of the before/after transformation photos you see, it’s incredibly difficult to manage your expectations, or even know what’s possible for you in a particular timeframe.

If you saw 10 Instagram posts of 12-week transformations where people continually lost a drastic amount of weight, you might begin to believe that was the norm, and that if you just put in the work for 12 weeks, you’d have a similar transformation.

Fat loss successes and body transformations all have a story behind them.

For some, it seems to happen fairly linearly while for others it doesn’t.

Some people will scream at you — “fat loss is easy!” — insinuating that if you’re failing with your own fat loss efforts that you’re broken (which is highly unlikely), doing it all wrong (this is definitely possible), or just unlucky (but most likely inconsistent).

A Reader’s Story: His Battle with Cancer, Former Fat Boy Syndrome, and How He’s Rebuilding His Physique Using LGN365

Today we have a guest article from Hampus Hertzberg, cancer survivor, fitness enthusiast, and seriously one of the coolest people I’ve met on the Internet. He was one of the 15 winners who got a free 30-minute Skype consult when I released LGN365. After chatting with him, and seeing his progress, I asked him to tell his story here.

Every great fitness story has a beginning; mine just starts off a bit different than others.

My journey began toward the end of 2009. The following year actually became both the best, and worst year of my life.

I was 23 years old, and for years I’d been working part time jobs to support a lifestyle devoted to drinking and partying. However, all of the hiding from real life and anxiety was beginning to creep up on me.

On the night before Christmas eve in 2009 I drank so much that I spent my Christmas eve alone at a friend’s apartment where I alternated sleeping and vomiting while missing out on a friend’s breakfast invitation.

Simply put, I was the biggest douchebag.

I did eventually pick myself up that evening to act as Santa Claus for my friend’s kids, but I then continued my binge drinking until the day after January 1st, which is where I made myself a promise.

I was at the lowest point in my life and didn’t know what to do. I promised myself I’d turn things around.
