Why I Decided To Transform
I started as a very inactive couch potato. I was up to 245 pounds and the doctor said I really needed to lose weight, so football came around and I chose to try it out.
Well, it was really hard; I got light headed and felt like throwing up, but I kept pushing. Throughout football I was a slow lineman on the JV squad. I did lose 10 pounds thanks to football.
Then someone told me about wrestling, so I went in and decided to give it a shot. I was heavyweight at the beginning of the season, but I decided to eat healthier and dropped down to the 220-weight class.
Throughout wrestling, I kept cutting pounds off and reached a previously unimaginable 205 pounds at the end of the wrestling season. I kept cutting until now, and I've reached my goal at 170! I'm still cutting pounds as slowly as possible to keep muscle.
My bench has not gone down, and in fact, it's gone way up. I started at 165 pounds, but now I'm up to 210 pounds on bench!
How I Accomplished My Goals
My parents were awesome and motivated me greatly. I couldn't have done it without them.
What Aspect Challenged Me The Most
I feel like the diet was the most challenging because there were days that I wanted a sweet candy. Sometimes I cheated, but who doesn't?
My Future Fitness Plans
My future fitness plans are complex. I want to get into bodybuilding and enter competitions. I would also like to start a program that helps overweight people start and learn to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Suggestions For Aspiring Transformers
It's hard, I know, but it's all worth it! The moment you step on the scale and see it's getting lower and lower, you just get an unexplainable happiness! Just keep pushing and you can achieve it because the body does what the mind orders it to.
