Permanent Weight Loss Specialist at Weight Loss by Pete

Hi, I'm Pete Weintraub, Founder and Permanent Weight Loss Specialist at Weight Loss by Pete! Thanks so much for checking out my HuffPost Blog. I struggled with my weight for over 20 years of my life. This came to a culmination at the age of 20, where I gained a Sophomore 70 in just the first three months of my fall semester! I remember going home and being asked 'What happened?' by friends and family who hadn't seen me since summer. My buddies at school would make fun of my weight when we'd had a few too many to drink. And girls - PLEASE! Nobody was interested in me in that state. Thus began my five year weight loss journey to lose 100 lbs. It was NOT easy! After the first 35-40 lbs came off easily via calorie restriction, portion control and increased physical activity, I experienced a plateau that lasted nearly two years. Despite my best efforts, I was stuck, and nearly gave up. Fortunately, I didn't, and was soon turned on to a BETTER way of eating and exercising - QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. As I learned more about different strategies for both that preached this philosophy, all while getting my mind right, the rest of the weight came off quickly! My life's mission is to help as many people as I can to shed the unwanted weight, PERMANENTLY! This is done through healthy, sustainable lifestyle changes that I've learned and perfected on my personal journey through the plateaus, as well as years of research and trial-and-error. I've helped successful entrepreneurs, CEOs, busy moms and even Marines lose weight FOR GOOD, and I hope that my articles will help point you in the right direction to do the same.
