About my fat loss Journey

Welcome to my fat loss journey, so no matter where you are on your weight management and fitness journey, I hope to share some insight and cut through a lot of the myths and clear up some facts about weight management and fat loss as appose to weight loss and also share how to build and sculpt lean muscle.


A bit about me, growing up I was always over weight, even though I was a very active boy, this could’ve been because I had a mum that would expect me to not only eat big meals and over load me with food, but I wasn’t able to leave the table until I had eaten every thing that was on my plate.

Then as I grew in to a young adult eating all the wrong types of comfort foods would then feel bad about what and how much I ate that I would go through a vicious guilt cycle, so of course I kept gaining weight or body fat and blew up to 32 kg over weight.

One day as I looked in the mirror I knew that I had to change what I was doing other wise I would continue to do the same thing and get the same result, so I made a quality decision and said that enough was enough.

So I made the quality decision to take control of my weight but wasn’t quite sure where to turn for help, so I started to work out from home but didn’t really know what to do or even if what I started doing was making any type of difference.

I was then introduced to a personal trainer that began to teach me about strength training and gave me a training program and also gave me alternative foods to eat that would aid and sustain with fat loss, he also introduced me to a couple of different types of cardio and even encouraged me to purchase a heart rate monitor to track my heart rate whilst training to motivate me I guess.

Well it worked but I tell you that It took some time through exercise and proper eating the weight began to come off, I lost over 32 kgs and looked and felt good.


When starting out on this journey there’s a lot of information out there to grasp and it can get over whelming for some people. So no matter what level your starting at, as long as you have made that quality decision & are serious and have had enough of going around the same guilt mountain, the aim of this site is to get you moving in the direction of losing that weight or excess belly fat you desire and guide you on this important journey.

That was me almost 14 years ago, but there is hope and there is help and there are steps you can take to begin your journey and not get discouraged and disheartened along the way.


Firstly I want to encourage you to make that quality decision if you haven’t already done so to Transform your body, and give you some simple steps that you can follow and include into your daily routine that doesn’t have to take up so much time and effort.

So as you begin your own fat loss journey I hope to help you cut through all the confusion and fog that is out there with practical and clear steps that anyone can do.

If you require any further information or have any further questions, please feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to respond back, or send us an email on support@bestfatlossjourney.com

All the best,

  1. As an 18 year old wog girl living in an Italian household, I can completely relate to your story. I find it so hard to stick to a healthy and fixed diet, considering I get pasta and pizza offered to me on a weekly basis, you just can’t win with the wog parents! Your post has really inspired me to make this “quality decision”, and I can truly say that I have started changing my old ways. I look forward to reading all your new posts that I can implement to creating my own fat loss journey.

    • Thanks for the feed back and I am glad this has inspired you to make the quality decision Chiara, I know all to well what you mean, I faced the same temptations, you do get well fed though, but of course, you need to have a balanced diet of good fats, proteins, veggies, fruit, omega’s 3. But once you take the first step and make that quality decision the next step gets easier. Let me know if you would like some more tips and check out my other posts.

  2. Great progress, it needs strength and resistance to follow a weight loss and work out programs, and to achieve the goals you set to yourself, your weight loss journey could be a motivation to millions of people who wish to lose weight but don’t know where to start.

    • Hi Rawan,

      Thanks for leaving your comments on my post, I believe the secret to long term success to fat loss is consistency and determination and starting off with realistic goals.

  3. Hi Charlie! Great post! Congrats on changing your life around and pursuing a healthier lifestyle. I know you mentioned in a previous comment that the secret to long-term success in the dieting or fitness world is consistency. That couldn’t be more true! From my experience, the game changer for losing 20 pounds of fat was using an app on my phone called myFitnessPal and buying myself a food scale for the kitchen. When you take the guesswork out of tracking your intake, you see major results.

    Best wishes,


    • Hi Kent,

      Thanks for the comments, I would agree consistency with persistence is the key to my success in losing 32 kilo’s and keeping it off, I too have seen the benefits with using bench top scales to my measure my food with, and used myFitness Pal to track food with that keeps you on track. Thanks again

  4. Hi Charlie, What an inspiration and you are using this knowledge wisely. I also had to eat everything put in front of me, if we didn’t finish, then no pudding. It isn’t easy to lose the belly-fat and I am a comfort eater which doesn’t help. Best wishes, Jill

    • Hi Jill,
      Thanks for the positive comments you left, if we didn’t eat everything on our plate we would get a smack up side the head, i would’ve preferred the pudding as well.
      If you would like any further questions answered please let me know?

      • Hi Jill,

        I know so many people that are comfort eaters and are over weight and want help, so one step is to recognize it and the next step is to do something about it, it seems that your on the right path though. Should you require any further info please let me know would love to assist.

  5. Hi Charlie, So many of us can identify with having to eat all that was put in front of you. I find that today am a comfort eater and when stresses get a very sweet tooth indeed. Thank you for very well written bio. Best of luck to you, cheers Jill
