Happy Saturday and late #flexfriday from the former 400lb man at 65% bodyfat on the left and 155lb guy at 9.5% bodyfat on the right. Just dropping in with an older picture to give some insight to ponder upon for the weekend.
People see the before and after, later learning the fact that it took 3.5 years. Yet, the hard part wasn't the weight loss.
No, my friends, the true test was becoming the victor instead of the victim. To unlearn all those years of being ridiculed and told I was going to be a nobody, a fatass, etc. That first took me being honest with myself. So, I removed social media, isolated myself and looked in the mirror.
I was weak. I was a glutton. I was wasting my life and consuming more than I needed, food that could benefit another more hungry. I was soft physically and mentally.
So, from the point forward, not only were my hands going to be callused... but my mind. I learned that in order for muscle to grow, I needed to break them down... so the mind will follow suit. I would break down the victim, become stronger.
Now, if you're capable (and you all are), you can do this, too. It's the most important thing you can do for the rest of your life. And the best thing is it works in all facets, not only weight loss and bodybuilding.
Are you willing to truly change? To sacrifice your comfort zone to suffer towards greatness?
Do it. Live to your full potential!
