Why I Decided To Change Your Body?

I was sick of being made fun of. My whole life people said I would always be fat. When I got skinny people said the only way I would ever gain weight is if I turned into the fat kid again. I was sick and tired of people saying this and wanted to prove them all wrong. I felt that the way I looked made people judge me without knowing me as a person.

It wasn't so much changing my self to make others treat me different, but changing because I knew I could be a much better person. I would do anything to accomplish that. Nothing was going to stop me from accomplishing my goals - I would do it by myself.

I saw it as a journey to benefit not only myself, but also to improve my character, will power, determination, self discipline, and most importantly the satisfaction of doing something everybody said I could not.

What Got You Started?

After deciding that I MUST prove everybody wrong I decided to research as much as possible. I began asking for nutrition advice from whoever would tell me anything. I started off with walking, gradually progressing to a light jog, and eventually running. I would lift as often as I could at school and had little knowledge about the sport.

As I progressed and gained more knowledge about my training I started lifting railroad ties and big rocks outside. Eventually people started to notice my gains and began helping me on my journey. I slowly built my own gym in my basement by gathering and making weights/equipment with help from my parents and dads friends.

Throughout this journey I have never once given up my hard work ethic and always believed that I could improve my self.

When And How Long It Took You?

I started on June of 2005 at a body weight of 250 pounds. In march 2006 I was 165 pounds. I decided I wanted to gain strength and lean muscle and now in December of 2007 I am 205 pounds, and more athletic than I was when I was 165 pounds. So far I have been on this journey for 2 and 1/2 years and it feels like it has just begun.
