2017 - It was a very difficult year for me, I made the decision to stop my career and take a break from everything. I kept training but eating 3-4 times a day and less portions than I have always eaten. I took advantage of that year to share more with my children and family because anyone who is in this knows how much time it takes away from your near ones, but the main reason was my Health. At 35 years of age I wanted to be sure that I was healthy to continue my career as a professional because my children and my family are more important than everything in this world. After at least 7 months of exams like CBC, CMP, GTT, TSH, PSA, Abdominal Sonogram with attention to the liver, thyroid sonogram, endoscopy, colonoscopy, sleep apnea and others, I do not say that this frees me from everything but at least it gives me a little peace of mind. That picture on the left was my shape, horrible, but I felt very well and healthy. It was very frustrating to see the deterioration of my body but I needed rest, peace of mind and to share with my family after a very competitive 2016.
Just starting my reconstruction in September 2017, Hurricane Maria came to destroy PR and I stopped everything again because the hurricane took everything away. There was no energy, there was no food, there was no water, there was no gas for the cars and generator, there was NOTHING so I had to move to FL to try to save my career and work to support my children and my debts. Thanks to my sponsors @prosupps , @ifbbpromighty_g and @salvatore_paula helped me leave PR with a flight that appeared as a miracle, and that is when finally in mid-October of 2017 I was able to start eating well and train and do what was necessary to try to save my career. Little by little, day by day, with many frustrations but without losing the faith of returning to resume my career that photo on the right is the result after 5 months of hard work and lots of food. It was not until last Friday that I took that picture and I could see that I am recovering what I lost, because for 283-285lbs it is not bad. (Continue ⬇️)
