|BEFORE: 280 lbs / 40 pants||AFTER: 198 lbs / 32 pants|
Here is Jason's Story:
Currently I'm 32, living in New Hampshire, working for my family's company. For pretty much the entirety of my life I had been over weight. Growing up, my mother owned her own bakery, and so I was constantly surrounded by cookies, brownies, cake, and any other sugary, carb-loaded treat you can imagine. Each year I'd gain a bit more weight, go up another pant size. It was just the way my life was. Then I turned 30. My doctor had been telling me I needed to loose weight for quite some time, but it always seemed so hard. I started with a workout routine, and stuck with it for a year, I had some success, loosing about 25lbs. The problem was I still hadn't changed my eating habits. Large steak bomb and a whole bag of chips? Sure, no problem. Five Guys burger and fries? I'd down that too. I knew I wanted to change, but didn't know how.
On the 1 year anniversary to starting my workout routine, I wasn't happy with my results. So I upped my game. It was around this time that my wife introduced me to this guy on line who was going to gain as much weight as he could so he could empathize with others and show them how to lose it. At first I didn't follow along very much, but every so often I'd catch a tidbit that you would throw out there that would pull me in more. Spinach shakes, Chinese "Fried" Rice, Quest bars. I started trying some of them out, and I started seeing success. I upped my workouts, and added in cardio. You inspired me to try recipes that I would have turned my nose up to months before. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't start my morning with a spinach shake. I still have work to do, my gut isn't totally gone, but I'm way better off than I was.
A few months ago I had my yearly physical, and I blew my Doctor away. He couldn't believe the change in my blood work in only a years time. I had gone from being pre diabetic, to having numbers that rivaled his most healthy and athletic patients. It made both of our days. So in short, I just want to thank you for being the inspiration you are. You gave me many of the tools I used on this Journey, and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it.
