In February 2014, I decided to make a change. I decided to lose the weight that had been holding me back my entire life.
I wasn’t diagnosed with an illness, but I was tired of being overweight and wanted to set a better example for my family – my brothers, sisters, nieces nephews, everyone. At my heaviest, I was over 450 pounds, standing only at 5'7''.
I’ve always been overweight. Even as a child, I carried extra weight. It was part of who I was. I can't remember a time in my life when I was a healthy weight. I remember having to shop in the men's department when I was 11 and 12 because kids’ sizes were too small.
Doing three simple things (simple, not easy) I was able to lose 240 pounds from February 2014 to December 2014: exercising, eating healthy and resting properly (sleep). No medical procedures, no supplements, no trainers. Just good old fashion hard work and determination. I used the NutriBullet from day one to present day. It has been a constant throughout this process (beside some form of exercise and sleep).
It has changed my life.
I have used it every day since I started my weight loss journey and I will continue to use it throughout my life. Currently, my weight loss has surpassed 270 pounds. It is a little hard to calculate, though, considering I’ve been putting on some lean mass and trying to bulk up for the past couple of months.
As you can imagine, my workouts were very intense to have lost that much weight in a year, but I couldn’t have done it without the help and support of my NutriBullet!
This is my graduation picture. I am on the right with my dad.
Those pants are a 66 waist. I now wear 32-inch pants. I believe that shirt was a 6X.
