There are a lot of things you can take from a lot of people. But when your mom calls you fat, it’s time to take a look at yourself.
I was your typical college student frat guy. I ate whatever I wanted—hot dogs, fries, chicken fingers, late-night pizza, Taco Bell, McDonalds. You name it, I ate it. Then, when I found I was sluggish and didn’t have any energy, I’d throw back a 5-hour Energy (or two), a Red Bull and maybe a cup of coffee or two. That didn’t even help because my diet was so bad. My clothes didn’t fit. Senior year, I had 4 shirts and a pair of pants.
In 4 years of college, I put on 80 pounds, and I was miserable.
But it wasn’t till I took that walk with my mom and she told me how overweight I’d become that it hit me. I knew I had to change. One night I was flipping around and I saw the P90X infomercial. Then I realized that we owned P90X. It had been sitting in our freakin’ basement for years. So it got it out and did it.
In the beginning, it was so hard. I could do maybe 1 pull-up and I would have to pause all the time doing plyometrics. I never worked this hard in all my life. But I had a goal to meet, so I kept pushing.
And now I’m on my second round! The results totally blew my mind. I remember looking in the mirror and seeing something totally odd—abs. I have abs. I’m also proud of all the weight I lost—81 pounds and still dropping. Even better, I’ve totally changed my outlook on life. A complete 180 from the mindset I had before.
My life has changed so drastically. Everyone knows me as ‘the P90X guy.’ I can’t tell you how many times people come up to me at church or at work and say that they’ve seen my before and after pictures and they’re just blown away.
Wow, to think that I can inspire other people by just doing this makes me feel so good.
