Hello All,

So back in May of 2012, I quit my job to make a career and life change. I weighed about 225 pounds. In April of that year is when I was slapped with the reality that I was overweight.  How? Well…. I was invited to go to my cousins Quinceniera (Sweet Fifteen). I brought my nicest suit and shirt and tie. Me and my fiance were sharing a room and the morning of the event, I put on my clothes…. omg…. NONE OF THEM FIT!!! my legs would not fit in the pants and once I did get them in, I could not zip up the pants. And my shirt and blazer barely fit. It was embarrassing. My fiance said something like, “You gotta chance that.” Not in a bad way, but it definitely lit a fire under my ass.  Well… I ended up having to buy new pants and shirt that morning. Horrible.  This is my photo from April 2012.

April 2012, 225 pounds

After I quit my job I started my journey. Here is a shirtless photo of me from August 2012. I actually forgot I had taken this photo. I found it on one of my CDs. The hair was terrible. But look at those GUNS…. 🙂

February 2014, 173 Pound

It has been about …. 22 months, 88 weeks. I have lost about .6 pounds per week. I mean… I will take that. And of course I had some slip ups. But I kept going. At one point I gained 12 pounds back and was stuck at 200 for a WHILE. But now the time has come. For greatness and a healthier lifestyle. I am not a crossfitter *YUCK*, a vegan *i love bacon*, a powerlifter or an olympic lifter. I train my body for health and I do my best to eat like that also.  I hope this can motivate someone else to go out there and get in a better shape and that it is possible if you have patience and JUST FINISH. 🙂 That is all folks.

PS: I am sexy in all of these pics. Remember that. 🙂
