Why I decided to transform
I love to play soccer with my friends and participate in other sports too. Sports used to consume my mind, but I was fat, which made me feel bad about myself.
I didn't understand why I was fat while the rest of my peers could smoke, do drugs, eat unhealthy and still have good bodies.
I decided to change my lifestyle and start eating healthy and doing cardio. After a month, I lost 22 pounds and my belly disappeared. I got to a normal weight range but didn't feel like I was maximizing my potential.
My goal was to have a perfect body. I'm still trying to accomplish that every day but know it's possible with hard work and dedication.
How I accomplished my goals
Staying motivated was the key to accomplishing my goals. I stayed motivated by watching videos and looking at photos of people I wanted to be like. Lazar Angelov is one of my favorites. I think he has the best body.
I was inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger too. He's the greatest. His spirit is incredible and he's the most dedicated bodybuilder ever.
My supportive friends and workout partners who stayed with me all the way are irreplaceable.
What aspect challenged me the most
When I first started lifting, I didn't have a trainer so I asked friends for advice but they all gave me different answers. I decided to search the web and got even more confused.
Then I found Bodybuilding.com and got answers to my questions. I also got help from my workout partners who motivated and supported me to overcome all challenges.
My future fitness plans
I want to become my best self and inspire others. In the future, I plan to help people transform their bodies and accomplish their goals. As for now, I'm trying to learn more about supplements, build more muscle, and construct the body I always dreamed of.
