Since I was a child. I have always had issues with my weight. I was told that I was "stocky" and "big boned". I never really cared about my weight until...
November 20th, 2007 was the day I decided to change my life. That morning I was looking in the mirror at myself and I was disgusted with what I was seeing. I was ashamed that I had let myself get to be nearly 300 pounds. I was ashamed that I had become a person that is living an unhealthy lifestyle
Ok, that is partially true. However, here is the real reason. I was trying to talk to this girl at the time. She said to me point blank, "You can't be serious. You're way too (colorful metaphor) fat to be even seen out in public with me."
Needless to say, I was devastated. It was like a switch that was buried deep down inside the pit of my belly turned on. That I promised myself that I will:
*Never again will I be fat. *Never again will anyone make snap judgments on my looks, either good or bad. *Never again will I let myself down and fail the most important person, myself.
This is the code that I live by every single day. Each time I get lazy and try to make excuses to not go work out. I think about those three commandments.
It's not going to happen. Not now, not never. I will not lose. Ever!
Why I Love it
You can see near instant results, unlike most things in life. The key is to apply the dedication, willpower, and determination to other parts of our lives. Lifting weight is just more than picking up an object and moving it. The process to actually lift that weight, starts will before your hand touches it.
