I am someone who has never played a sport. Someone who has always been overweight my whole life.
I am someone who would eat until I was full, and then eat some more. I never had control.
I am someone who was over 400 pounds, wore size 60 pants and a 5x shirt.
I am someone who should not look like the guy on the right…..yet that is exactly who I look like.
After losing 200+ pounds, there are things I had to realize along the way.
-I can not make excuses
-I have to strive for perfection each and every day
-The scale is a great tool, but it will not make me go into “plateau mode”
-Exercise is important, but Diet is essential
-Holidays are special, but overeating on them is not
-Life never gets easy
-Today is the only day I can make a difference
-Tomorrow never comes
-The past helps me go forward
Losing weight is hard and keeping it off is harder.
Being over 400 pounds was the hardest thing I ever went through though.
I will not do it again.
