Years ago I was in a severe car accident that threatened my life, and took away my dream of being a professional football player. It happened a couple weeks before college, so I never even got to play there. I went through 6 very long years of operations and physical therapy and was told I would never play football again, never run, never lift weights, etc. My metabolism had slowed, and I had a massive weight gain. Muscle had atrophied, and I went well over 330lbs with around a 52" waist. I was also suffering from muscle dysmorphia (reverse anorexia). I was very obese, but saw myself, and felt small. I was sick physically and mentally. I would wear layers of clothing even in the warmest of weather, and I would gorge myself with food in an attempt to feel "Full". I defied the doctors and started training again. I lost over 130lbs and then told people I wanted to compete. They laughed at me until I beat everyone who laughed at my first show. Now years later I am a professional bodybuilder, write for 4 magazines, am a fitness Ambassador, have won many awards including bodyspace Male of the year, AND I am a lifestyle coach and transformation specialist responsible for the radical transformation of hundreds of clients worldwide.. I am a living testament that anything is possible if you believe in yourself! I "dared to dream!"
Why I Love it
No matter WHAT happens in life, there is ONE thing that you can contol... your body. And there is NO feeling more satisfactory than when you work hard enough to make the changes you want to it!
