The Big Guy That Could by John

 

I’ve been an athlete since I was a kid, playing just about every sport, in 2006 I moved to Florida and my life completely changed, I didn’t realize it, I had stopped playing sports, all physical activity had limited to work and playing video games. I had no control over what I ate, fast food restaurants were my best friends. It wasn’t until last year when I started to see what I had done to myself, the chest pains started, I noticed that simply walking up the steps at a movie theater had me out of breath. By the end of the year I had finally hit my limit, I wanted to get back to who I once was and honestly I was scared. 2/21/13 was the day I started my journey, I weighed in at 280lbs, as of 12/8/13 I’m weighing in at 227 and I’ve yet to hit my goal, progress is now my best friend, I’ve embraced fitness and I appreciate every aspect of it, it’s only easier from here.
