This is his story
“Happy to say I have completed my second challenge. I went from being an overweight trucker out on the road, weighing over 300lbs, stopping at all truck stops buffets to eat, having health issues and depressed. I first saw this challenge on IG and was kind of just watching it until I knew I had to make a change. Health was going downhill, and I had a family to worry about. Although I always had a passion for lifting and sports, I just really didn’t have the drive anymore.
Growing up seeing my father provide for us and being the great man he was, was all I was trying to be, but I was missing my health, nothing interested me or made me happy or excited anymore, it was like I had a piece missing and I could never fill it no matter what I bought, accomplished, gifts I got, holidays nothing would give me happiness anymore. I have to say this challenge has really changed that and has made me realize who I really am.
I’m starting to feel great and feel like myself again and although losing weight trying to build a nice physique is really hard, I believe I have found my happiness and will try to push this further and see how far I can get. During The challenge I had to overcome lots of sleepless days, long 14hr shifts at work, less time with family, but it was all worth it at the end for us. Advice I can give to someone starting their journey is know how to take advice from anyone, even though you might think you know more, any piece of advice from a different person is going to help you in some type of way.
Thank you all for being a huge inspiration, it takes lots of guts, discipline, pain and sacrifice to get to where we are. Congratulations to all! I want to thank all of y’all for always being so positive and encouraging in these challenges truly has helped a lot.”
