Ever since I was a little kid, I was overweight and as I grew, the weight only added on.
All my life people stared and made fun of me, but I tried not to let it bother me and would laugh it off. I didn’t realize just how much weight I had gained until I lost a bet and had to do 50 push-ups… only I couldn’t even do one. This simple act shattered everything I had thought about myself.
At the time, I was hired as a bodyguard. I was the guy who was supposed to protect people, yet here I was not even able to do a simple push-up. I felt weak and embarrassed. I felt ashamed.
I went to the doctor to figure out just what was going on and was shocked when I stepped on the scale and saw that I was 605 lbs! I never in my life thought that I could weigh that much. How did this happen? How could I let this happen? And then the doctor explained to me how this much extra weight was putting my life in danger and that early death was a very real possibility.
That was enough for me to make the decision to change my life so that I could fight for my life. I went home, threw out everything in my cupboard and decided I was going to eat healthy. I also made the choice that if I wanted to eat, I had to walk the mile and a half to the nearest Walmart and buy each of my meals.
I stuck to my plan and within 90 days I dropped my first 100 lbs. Today, I have lost about 350 lbs and am on my way to becoming a bodybuilder, something I never thought would be a goal of mine. Everyone told me I couldn’t do it and I’m proving them wrong and now I want to show that for you too, anything is possible!
