The picture on the left was from June 2007. I was at my heaviest which was pretty close to 200lbs. I wore size XL shirts and had a 38 inch inseam at my heaviest.
I ate just about everything I wanted to without any regard of how it would impact my health and my overall well being.
Exercise and eating right was the last thing on my mind. I ate just because I felt like it. Somewhere along the lines I thought, dreamt even, about the day I would get out of the vicious cycle and finally change the habits for good.
After starting a full time job and working 40+ hrs/week, I managed to lose some weight. This lit a small fire under my ass and I slowly started to incorporate some cardio and lifting weights into the mix.
The picture on the right is where I currently stand. It's been 10 years. I've lost 70lbs. I wear size medium shirts and have a 30 inch inseam (give or take). Through tracking my calories and following intermittent fasting, I was able to achieve what I thought was never possible My relationship with food is at its best. I feel and look a lot better than I ever have in my life. I allow myself to eat flexibly, still enjoying the occasional treat here and there.
I just wanted say that anyone is capable of anything if they put their heart and mind into their dreams and goals. Compound interest over time, doing the menial little things, can and will pay off. I promise.
