Warning! Long post, but please read.
I'd like to do a #tbt post, and show decent before and after photos, but if I'm honest, over the last year, I have been strategically NOT taking full length or straight on body photos - if I'm even in the shot at all. That's because I was embarrassed by how much weight I'd gained, and my inability to shift it.
There's a few people that have inspired my #lifestylechange notably @fatboyfitman , @possiblepat , and @robertfrank615 (who's videos are ALWAYS hilarious and his #houseofgains sayings keep me going through tough gym sessions), but by far the one man I have to thank is @dean_g_fitness .
A mutual friend recommended Dean. When we met, I jokingly said, "you know the Olympia guys? I wanna look like that". We both laughed for a minute, and then he stops, looks at my shoulders, and goes, "yeah. I think if we shred you down... then bulk... yeah, we could do it."
TBH, I thought it was a sales pitch. But Dean is such a genuine fella, and he really does keep you motivated and keeps your vision in sight at all times. We're only six weeks in, and I've gone from;
94.9kg (14.49 st/ 209 lbs)
91.2kg (14.36 st / 201 lbs)
As well as losing literally inches of fat from the rest of my body. I no longer feel like the 'fat friend', that needs to hide behind the camera, and I actively look forward to working out. My clothes all hang loose on me now. I feel healthier, and more confident in myself.
I'm a LONG way from where I want to be. And it will likely take years. But in less than two months, Dean has really helped me make drastic changes, and I feel more confident that there WILL be more to come.
I'm just getting started. 💪🏻😏 #liftfatboylift #bowersdontstop #fatboytofitman #olympiaorbust😂 #progress #evolveordie #letsgo #comingforeverythingtheysaidicouldnthave #deangfitness #awesomeup
