Jake Lasher


When I was living in Tallahassee Florida and working as a camp director year round I was miserable. I was overweight, unmotivated, and incredibly unhappy. I figured this was me now and I would have to deal with it and make do. My work and life situation did not really fit a healthy lifestyle. One night I watched The Resurrection of Jake the Snake and cried my eyes out. The next day I ordered the DDPY DVDs. I was so committed and ready to go and do it! Then camp started and I totally got knocked off track. Several other factors led to me leave Tallahassee, my boss stopped paying me, I started to develop some habits even worse than just my unhealthy eating ones, and I was going down a path that needed to change. In the back of my head was always, go back to DDPY, that worked, you felt good, you had motivation and confidence. At 30 years old I changed careers and moved back in with my parents. It wasn’t my brightest moment.
I decided enough was enough and it was time for a change. I hadn’t fully unpacked my things but I had my DDPYoga materials out. I was always waiting for tomorrow. I would think, " I’ll do it when this happens" or "I’ll do it after this." It never happened. Finally I went out and bought a DVD player and was ready to change my life. Then, the dvds wouldn’t play. Maybe from all the dust collected while they were waiting for tomorrow. I was discouraged but in the back of my head relieved. It was the easy way out but it wasn’t my fault. I immediately said no! I downloaded the app, and subscribed for 3 months. I was FLOORED by how much the program had changed and grown since I had been gone. I started a program, beginner 2.0 and I never looked back. I was able to change my mindset, focus, appearance, and overall state of being. I lost 80 pounds, moved back out on my own, and have never been happier. During one of the DDP live workouts DDP says "even on the days when it’s hardest to get on the mat, you never say I wish I didn’t do that." That’s my mantra now. Own your life and you won’t regret it.
Once I achieved my goal I got a DDPY tattoo on my chest as a symbol of my accomplishment, and as a constant reminder that we can never go back. And now when DDP says “don’t forget to do this tomorrow” I always say, how could I forget.
