This was me, in March of 2008.
I was over 410lbs, morbidly obese.
Always hungry, never satisfied.
Addicted to video games.
Buying clothes was embarrassing, even at the local “Big and Tall” store. I didn’t fit in plane seats. I could barely walk without being in pain. I was balding. I was scared. I thought I had tried everything and failed at everything. I was a college dropout. I felt like I was going to die at only 28.
And I was about to become a father.
When my wife came to me and showed me that positive pregnancy test, everything changed. I knew that the man I had become was not the husband that my wife deserved. I knew that the man I had become is not the father that my daughter deserved. The realization of those things hit me harder than anything I have ever felt.
I knew I had to transform myself.
This is me today.
I’ve lost 210 lbs. and kept it off. I am now a proud father of two. I went back to school while working full time and graduated in the fall of 2014.
I am happy.
I feel alive.
I have never been smarter, never been stronger, never been faster, never been leaner, never been healthier, and never been happier.
I am afraid of nothing. And I’m only 35.
In my newfound passion for life, I’ve found an intense desire to help others who are in that same dark place that I was. I want to help you lose weight and keep it off. I know that I can help you because I’ve been where you are. I’ve felt what you feel. I’ve struggled, and I’ve failed. But I’ve made it, and I want you to make it as well.
And most importantly, I want you to know that you are not alone, and you can do this!
