When I dumped the cane within 3 weeks,
I was shocked, and the weight loss was insane. The kids at the daycare noticed too
I've had back problems for the last 20 years.
I was very discouraged knowing that I had the drive to get myself into better shape but my body wouldn't allow it
Touching my toes was something I've never been able to do in my life.
But something miraculous started to happen, in less than a week I started seeing results.
Ten years later, I'd gained 35 pounds and lived a sedentary life.
Every once in a while I'd get so frustrated with myself that I would try to start running or working out the way that I used to, only to run into more pain, swelling, and depression when I failed.
My story starts with obesity and a poor self image
since childhood.. I had NEVER been active or athletic in any way. In my early teens, I began going to metal shows and participating in mosh pits
I was at this time around 208 lbs. round as ever,
eating whatever and whenever and suffering from depression and mood swings.
Transitioning from active duty to civilian life was difficult.
I had been suffering from PTSD for many years.
