Weight: 460 lbs
Why I Got Started
Although I was active as a teen and a young man, I had become severely overweight as an adult. I was so far out of shape it was crippling. What got me started? I'm not sure how but a beautiful young woman came into my life in 2002.
I was about 380 pounds at the time and she never left my side as I ballooned up to 460 pounds. I knew she wasn't going anywhere no matter what. I already let my weight make a mess of my life; I could not let it make a mess of hers as well.
I chose to become a better man for her. Once I got started I remembered the man I had once been and I chased my goals with a passion.
How I Did It
I had a VBG and did cardio for one year. I worked my way from one step at a time to six miles per day. After I lost about 200 pounds I began to feel like a man again; it was then that I started weight training.
Vertical Banded Gastroplasty, also known as Stomach stapling, has been the most common restrictive operation for weight control. Both a band and staples are used to create a small stomach pouch.
In the bottom of the pouch is an approximately 1-cm hole through which the pouch contents can flow into the remainder of the stomach and thence onto the remainder of the gastrointestinal tract.
Fitness is now my life. The young woman of whom I spoke is now my wife, and is into the fitness & figure side of bodybuilding. If I can afford to do something about the skin issue I would like to compete at the NPC level someday. Ultimately I want to make bodybuilding and fitness a career.
