Why I Got Started

I started to change my body because I was always the "fat kid." I would always be excluded because of the way I looked. Although I had friends, I was often picked on. My entire childhood is filled with memories of being teased by other kids.

In high school I gained about 15 pounds by eating 2-or-3 slices of pizza a day with a pop. My diet was out of control and I was on my way to a life of being overweight. Everyone would make fun of me because I was overweight and I would stick out like a sore thumb compared to all my friends.

How I Did It

I tried many things before I actually lost weight - the WII, playing hockey, buying into cheap gimmicks - but none of those worked. Finally one day I was in grade 11 and I signed up for a weightlifting course at my school. The first day I was in the gym atmosphere I was intimidated, but I was around my friends so I stuck with it.

Day by day I would learn something new. I found this knowledge interesting and I couldn't get enough. By the end of the course I had not seen any changes, but I loved the way I felt when I did workout. I started to lose weight around January when I realized my body was getting out of control.

I Couldn't Get Enough.

I found out that in order to change you need to change your diet. When I changed my diet I started to see change in my body. Two months later I decided to join the YMCA. I changed my diet and day by day my body was changing. Eventually my knowledge grew and with a lot of hard work combined with determination I managed to lose 40 pounds.

Now that I am fit, I am no longer known as the "fat kid" but now my friends call me "jacked." This experience has changed my life and I am now looking forward to becoming a personal trainer and helping people like myself when I grow up.

The most important aspect to change your body is your diet. Without a proper diet you cannot make the changes that you wish to achieve. Work hard, be patient and changes will come.
