Why I Decided to Transform

I decided to lose weight and transform my body so I would look good in clothes, in the mirror, and in general. I used to be moody because of my weight and knew I had to do something about it. My teachers provided a lot of motivation and support in high school.

My life is much better now. I feel more confident and relaxed because my body looks great. Now I can do everything that I wasn't able to before. I used to be shy and wouldn't lift my hands up because my belly popped out under my shirt.

How I Accomplished My Goals

I accomplished my goals by pushing myself to the limit and never giving up. I held myself accountable to lose the weight. There were points when I wanted to let go of everything and give up. If you speak to yourself and tell yourself you're going to do something, then nobody can get in your way; you're on the road to success.

I went to the gym by myself. When I brought someone to work out, they just talked and distracted me so I couldn't work out hard. I cut out all fast food, soda, junk food, and candy from my diet and discovered how helpful it is to have dedicated bulking and cutting cycles. When my friends and family saw how successful I was they all asked for my help.

Diet Plan that Guided My Transformation

Dieting is required if you want to achieve a specific physique goal. It was hard for me to avoid snacks and sugary food. Thanks to my parents, I kept that stuff out of the house and replaced it with healthy snacks.

Meal 1
Meal 2
Meal 3
Meal 4
Training Regimen That Kept Me On Track

If you want to lose weight, this training plan is very good. I dropped lots of weight on this plan. The most important aspect to lose weight is the diet. If your diet is horrible, you won't be successful. Make sure to stay away from bad food.

Day 1: Arms/Cardio
Day 2: Legs
Day 3: Shoulders/Cardio
Day 4: Chest/Back/Cardio

What Aspect Challenged Me the Most

The most challenging part has always been the diet. In my early days, I thought I could gain weight by stuffing my mouth with as much food as possible. This led me to eat lots of junk food and calories which increased my fat gains. Since then, I spent a great deal of time researching foods to make sure I eat the right amount.

Time has also been challenging. It's never a problem finding time to work out, but it's difficult to find the amount of time with school in the picture. I was always tired after school, but knew I had to work out.

My Future Fitness Plans

I don't want to be a bodybuilder, but I do want a nice physique. Lifting will always be a big part of my life. I will continue working out to keep my body toned and muscular. I'm considering becoming a personal trainer so I can share my knowledge with others. Everyone needs help from people with experience.

Suggestions for Aspiring Transformers
  • Don't listen to what others say. They will put you down because they're jealous.
  • You're doing this for yourself, not for anyone else. Stay motivated and talk to yourself.
  • Do lots of research before you go to the gym or you won't know what to do.
  • You shouldn't work out to impress anyone. Work out because it makes you feel good.

Awesome job!!!! You are such an inspiration to so many young people who battle the same thing and go for your dreams of being a PT! You would be great at it considering you liked an unhealthy lifestyle and proved that change is possible. Keep it up!!

If his diet and exercise plan are "not good", how do you explain the outstanding transformation? It obviously has worked exceptionally well for him, therefore it must be good!

For all you guys out there, Yes i am planning on building muscle and I've upped my calories and eating like a monster to gain mass. What put's me down the most is my excess skin at the moment.. I'm going for surgery in couple of months to get my saggy chest to be fixed and tummy.

Not only is this an outstanding transformation, but the general message this guy offers is positive and constructive, and shows maturity well beyond his years. While many 17 year olds, including myself at that age, and even a lot of people more than twice that old are primarily concerned with pumping up their biceps or benching as much as possible just to satisfy their ego, Mehmet seems genuinely motivated to living a healthy life. If more people were this wise, the world would be a better place.
