I hesitated to post a second video today, but I had a feeling that in a couple days this progress would have been old news. "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth." Genesis 9:13

My name is Zach Moore. @mmazach in 2011 my cardiologist flat out told me that I was going to die. I would not live to see my 35th birthday (I was 30 years old at the time) if I did not lose weight and suggested Gastric Bypass. I was 400 pounds at the time. Which was 100 lbs lower than my maximum weight of 500 pounds.
β€’
I put surgery off for three years because "life happened", I ballooned up to be a 500 pound human. Do you know how miserable life is and how tasking daily simple tasks are at that size..? I had enough so like many I fell for what I say on Tv, Radio and the internet, (GET HIGH SCHOOL SKINNY) I tried dieting, I tried taking weight loss pills, I have tried skinny teas, sure enough I gained more and more weight. I thought nothing was ever going to change, I fully expected to die a fat, overweight, slob who people looked at and judged without knowing the struggles that I have been on, no one was ever going to help me... that is until I started caring about myself and help myself.

In 2014 I turned mine life and my families life upside down. I had Gastric Bypass Surgery in May 2014. I lost 240 lbs the first year alone (417 Day 1 to ➑️ 177). From there I got weird as I call it and started to a hobby, a healthy love myself hobby. I began to learn about my body, what foods help lose weight, gain weight, trigger hangry times, and just don't sit on my pouch. My health now is what's important with what I've been through, I take 10 extra minuets to read what is in food, the REAL differences between processed food (boxed food) and real food (food from the planet). I have lost 350 pounds total since November 2013. You should see me now.

Life on this planet is so different now from my POV and my eyes, being called "normal" everyday is humbling, but at the same time makes me think would you be the first to have called me names as well? I know that years of obesity has lead to some bad times and memories that I may never forget, my skeletons, well all have them, it's human nature.

THERE IS NO SUCCESS WITHOUT HARDSHIP...
In a perfect world I would have figured out my life by the time I was 31. Had a growing family, a perfect job, and enjoyed waking up every morning to a new day. But we don't live in a perfect world. Every time we think we have something figured out we get hit with a new endeavor. Every time we feel like we are catching our breath, a wave takes us back under. These past few days I went from feeling like I was finally make strides towards my calling only to be thrown to the back of the line of Life. In the past I probably would have curled up and called it quits, but I've been thru far too much in my life to let this deter me. I've been on my own for 13yrs and counting. Never being given anything except for challenges I signed up for to prove my worth. There is no "perfect life". Life will randomly show up to remind you that it's here to collect. Refuse to show up empty handed. Refuse to be thrown on the streets. Refuse to be cast aside by your own doubts. Even the strongest of us have our weaknesses and the weakest have their strengths. Take your punches and fight until you find your strength.

I'm in lust
πŸ˜πŸŒπŸ«πŸ’πŸ˜
Pinch me once,
Slap me twice,
Remind me 3 times that I'm on a 30 day challenge to melt the fat, because I'm half a second away from whipping these babies up & scarfing down the ENTIRE batch of chocolate dipped, rainbow sprinkled, cherry topped, banana split frozen goodness.

Must. Not. Cave.
Must. Remain. Strong.

I've been doing some cleaning, and today started going through my t-shirts to get rid of some and trying them on(because we all know that we ALL have far too many t-shirts in our closets because we never get rid of themπŸ™„πŸ˜‚) Well, I came across this one. One of maybe 4 t-shirts that I would always wear about 10 months ago! I had a lot of other t-shirts, but this was one of the 4 that actually fit me anymore at that point in my life... I was curious so I put it on and I was amazed. It was several sizes too HUGE. I know that I've lost a decent amount of weight, but putting this t-shirt on brought up so many emotions... Happiness.
Excitement.
Sadness.
Shame.
Anger.
Disgust.
Embarrassment.
But most of all greatfulness. πŸ™Œ
I'm so happy, proud and greatful of how far I've come. πŸ˜…

There are many days where I still feel like the same person with the same body that I had 10 months ago, but it's moments like these that show me how incredibly far I've come and reassures me that she is in the past. πŸ‘Š*FOREVER*

Never underestimate yourself, never give up on a goal you've set for yourself, never allow someone take your happiness away, especially yourself!
One thing I've learned through out this weight loss, it's that someone is always waiting to watch you fall, someone is always going to have something negative to say, but there are people cheering you on and hoping that you reach that end goal, so show them that you're better than all those negative people around you. ✌

What's your excuse? Why can't you go above and beyond? Why can't you turn that little dream you have into a reality?

I'm not going to say that it's an easy journey, but I will say it's worth it! πŸ’“

I know I still have a long ways to go, and still have several inches, and about 40lbs to lose(give or take depending on my muscle gain) but I have a lot of big goals set for myself to reach, and that's where it all starts. πŸ™Œ
Goals.
Motivation.
Determination.
Willpower.
Use those as a foundation, and you'll make some of your dreams a reality!

Make sure this is something that you want & you're willing to work for... because the easy road will always be there!
I'm up against an opponent I can't see but I can feel them breathing down my neck.
IT'S ME
It is all my fears & all my doubts just waiting for me to fail!
It will always be a fight between my body & my mind.
I drown out the sound of uncertainty with my own heartbeat because I'm a lion in a field of lions with fire under my feet.
For me... the laws of physics are merely a suggestion!!!!
I'm listening to the little voice & screaming over the top of all the doubt.
I'm getting up early even though I want to sleep in, because there was a reason I set that alarm in the first place.
I look in the mirror & see my true competition!
I see who it is & who it always has been!!!!
ME V'S ME πŸ‘ŠπŸ½

2 years in the making!! Will power isn't automatic people it's earned. It takes hard work and dedication so don't give up on yourself!!

Great start to a Sunday morning spent with those that could make it from our Wake Up Call team.
