• My, How Things Have Changed •
The photo on the bottom was taken in 2015. I weight in at 338 lbs and 38.6% bf — My weight was contributed to no interest in my personal health, an extreme lack of discipline in food choices, and not until later in life, realizing I was suffering from depression. I always prided myself on “not being a picky eater” and “not being wasteful.” My lack of acknowledgement in food consumption combined with zero physical activity led me down a steep slope to just accept that, “this is who I am.”
Eventually I came around to admitting that a change had to be made. I have a lot of appreciation and thanks to give for some individuals for believing in, encouraging, and teaching me how to succeed in the goals I set for myself. — The photo above was taken just a couple of weeks ago. Today I am 267 lbs and in the low 20’s in bf%. I still have a way to go before reaching my current set of goals. — I’ve had over 20 years to get to the way I was in the photo below.. Making a lifestyle change takes time. It takes research, discipline, and adaptability. I have had PLENTY of trial and error with diet and exercise over the last 3 years. — Don’t give up. Be patient. The results with come if you put in the work. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. - Romans 12:2
as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. - Philippians 1:20
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own - 1 Corinthians 6:19
