The left was taken last summer at a farm / produce store. The right was taken about a month or so ago. My heaviest was 388 in 2011. My last weigh in was 250, last week. Up until three weeks ago I have not stepped foot in a gym since high school (25 yrs ago) my fat is now turning to muscle and I feel 200% more energetic and productive than I ever have.
I decided about eighteenth month’s ago that I was tired of being obese and people staring and laughing at me like I was a freakin’ circus freak. I gave up carbs, processed foods, fried foods and went from probably 5000 calories a day to 1600 to 1800 a day now. I was so complacent with being morbidly obese that I thought it was just meant to be.
I decided to do this for me! Not my wife, deceased mom, Facebook notoriety, because my Dr. has been telling me to, but for once in my life, me! I’m so glad I did. I want to help or educate any and everyone that will listen! I can do small things now that skinny people will never understand, like fit in restaurant booth, kneel at church without my fat ass half off the seat and half on, fit in a movie theater seat without spilling over both sides!
I can’t wait to sit in an airplane seat or a roller coaster! This is definitely a if I can do it anybody could, story! I figure another forty pounds and I probably bought myself an additional twenty years of quality life ! Thank you for letting me share my success story on my lifestyle change! No such word as diet, people! Like an addiction, its a lifestyle change and lifelong battle!
