Starting weight - 329lbs
Current weight - 199lbs
Hey everybody! My name is Carl and I’ve lost a few pounds since April, 2012. I’ve been overweight my entire life and I started to realize I wasn’t living my life to the fullest, so I changed.
From walking around the block, to becoming a full marathon finisher.. this journey has been amazing. I’ve started checking things off my bucket list (skydiving!) and have managed to maintain the weight loss for over a year now. I’m in school to be a personal trainer as well so I can pass my knowledge onto the people who feel like it’s impossible to lose weight. It’s not only become a “thing I did” but has completely consumed my life and I love it!
If there is a few things I want to share with people about weight loss is this: It’s 100% mental. Everything holding you back is in your head, once you make up your mind to lose the weight it will happen. Believe in yourself! Also, weight loss is one choice at a time.. simple as that. We make dozens of choices a day, all the “small” choices we have make the difference. The more healthy choices you make, the healthier your body will become. Lastly, there is no finish line to living a healthy lifestyle. Just because you reach your goal weight doesn’t mean you’re done, it means you’re now onto the rest of your life of maintenance and healthy choices.
Life is meant to be lived, so go live! I know it seems impossible but it’s not! Believe in yourself and take a chance, it will be 100% worth it.
I’m submitting this from my personal blog, but I recently started a health and fitness blog. If you have any questions/comments please feel free to ask, I love talking anything fitness!
