Why I Got Started
dot

I almost died. After being in and out of the hospital for 4 months, missing grade 11 and being forced to do homeschooling, never having a girlfriend, or being physical with a girl in any way, something needed to change.

I took it upon myself to set myself on this journey. No help, no guidance; just my wits, my knowledge and common sense.

How I Did It

I knew exercise was good, sugar was bad, and carbs were bad. I expanded from there.

I Started Out Slow.

I started out slow, as all you can do while you are 420 pounds and bedridden is slow stuff, such as walking, playing games with my little brother like hockey and catch, riding my bike from place to place and to school and back everyday. Then I started to work out in the gym 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 days per week.

My diet was mostly fruits and vegetables, no bread, noodles, pasta, rice and little protein as I developed a medical condition called Diverticulosis.

Diverticulosis:
Diverticulosis, otherwise known as "diverticular disease," is the condition of having diverticula in the colon, which are outpocketings of the colonic mucosa and submucosa through weaknesses of muscle layers in the colon wall.

Suggestions For Others
dot

  • Eat with your mind, not with your body. Do what you know is right.
  • Don't starve yourself. As much as it seems like it's the best way to lose weight ... it's not.
  • Think about what food is - nothing more than to fuel your body.
  • Enjoy your food less.
  • Find new positive things to keep you excited and motivated.
