Scott Proscia's Inspiration and Motivation
My daughter was born on August 13, 2010, and she no longer has an obese father. She just turned 7-months old at the end of this competition and she'll never know that her father was obese and unhealthy.
I made the decision to start dieting about a week before Christmas. This decision brought me back to my roots and led me to visit Bodybuilding.com for information and supplementation. Believe it or not, I was once AAU Mr. Teenage Junior America (one of the first Bodybuilding.com Teen Bodybuilders of the week).
The Optimum Nutrition $100,000 Transformation Challenge was just what I needed to keep me going. It gave me additional motivation to take getting healthy to a competitive level and produce a transformation that even I, working as a professional in exercise science, think is truly unbelievable. Basically, the time came to start practicing what I preach.
I started the contest December 28 at 284 pounds. I set a weight loss goal of 75 pounds in 84 days, which would bring me to around 210 pounds with six pack abs. I got to 209 the day before the competition ended - mission accomplished.
My wife was my biggest advocate and a wonderful supporter. From cooking and weighing my meals, to taking my pictures, and even though she hated it, taking my skin fold measurements on locations I couldn't reach. Thank you my dear!
