My name is George. I am 33 years old and a father of 2, a son with Asperger's and a daughter who has ADHD. In October 2005, I hurt my neck while working at Walmart. I had doctors telling me to either ignore the pain or find another line of work. I attempted to go to a tech school to learn a trade but I was so depressed and was hurting so bad I did not take my certs. For the next 7 years, I sat on my ass in front of a computer playing video games in self-pity. I ignored and pushed away my wife, my kids, and my life. I had become very cold and callous. On top of that my mother was very ill and I  had to take care of her. But I even ignored some of that as well, I just didn't care about anything anymore, not even myself. I excepted to be dead by the time I was 50 and I had come to terms with that.
I went from having a six pack and being 140 lbs to a massive 280 - 290 pounds with no end in sight. The entire time I kept telling myself I couldn't do anything anymore because of my neck. I thought it so often that I actually truly believed it.

Then one day I took a look around and saw what I had become and asked myself if this was what I wanted for myself, my kids and my wife. Obviously, it wasn't but I didn't know where to start. Then while watching WWE RAW I saw Chris Jericho (Y2J) talk about DDP YOGA. Now I had heard rumblings of YRG for years, due to being a huge fan of DDP, but paid it no mind. Well, I started researching it and came across Arthur's story. That was it for me, I made my mind up right then and there that I was going to do this and get my life back. Took me a few months to save up the money but in July 2012 I finally ordered DDPY, and good god has my life turned around. I can’t begin to describe to you what it’s like to finally have my life back. It’s unreal. 

Now I have had major ups and downs over the last 4 and 1/2 years, since starting DDPY. I have had injuries, made excuses, suffered the loss of my mother, and just about everything you can name. I've lost stamina, flexibility, drive and will. I managed to shoot back up to 220 pounds while still half-assing DDP YOGA and eating like crap. However, as DDP would say, its not about how many times you get knocked down, it’s about how many times you get back up and oh boy have I ever. I had to slowly work my back up to get back to where I was and to surpass it. It's now the end of Feb 2017 and I now am working out 2+ hours a day, 7 days a week. For the last 60 and a 1/2 weeks, I have done added in the Red Hot Core workout after each workout. 
Now, I am down to 189.8 lbs and I look better and feel great. I went from a pants size of 40-42 to 34-36. My neck still hurts on occasion, but I have way more good days than bad days. I owe it all to DDP YOGA. I really enjoy the challenge in it. It's as hard or easy as I make it. Just when you feel you're outta steam and can't do anymore or achieve a goal DDP gets you pumped and BANG you did something you never thought in your wildest of dreams you could do. 

My current goals are to lose another 20-30 lbs and get DDP YOGA Instructor Certified (which I just started that journey of my life last week.) I want to give others the feeling of regaining their life, losing weight, building strength and an overall better outlook on life. 

I'm ready to go back into the world and show it just who I am, and what I can achieve! Nothing is impossible, even the word impossible says I'M POSSIBLE! So get ready everyone I’m just getting started.

Update February 2018

I am currently 162 pounds, up from 155 lbs in September, but lost a ton of inches, and am a Level 1 DDP YOGA Certified Instructor. I have gained leaps and in bounds in strength. I can do anything from forearm stands and scorpion, to black crow and psycho pushups. So happy! I now have done RHC 2.0 after each workout for 2 years. I now wear 30- to 32 size jeans. Can't wait to see where else this journey takes me!
