I’m a guy who has been overweight for my whole adult life. Even during my childhood I was a chubby kid who always seemed to weigh a few more pounds than all the other kids. I was never the fattest but still considered to be overweight. In high school I wasn’t able to participate in football  or any other sports like I wanted to. I began to have knee problems that caused my kneecap to dislocate and pop back in which after a while caused a partial ACL tear. Anytime I suffered a dislocation of my knee cap it was extremely painful and kept me out from participating in high school sports. After high school I finally had surgery on both of my knees to address the issue but now each knee has 3 screws. Whenever I try to run or put a lot of pressure on my knees I feel pain, or as DDP would say, I feel the Bang!


After I recovered from my knee surgeries, I left my small town and moved to the Phoenix metro area in 2003. At the time of my move I was around 230 lbs. Between work and school I was not exercising  or eating right.  I ate fast food about 3-5 times a week maybe even more. When I had the opportunity to eat healthy at a restaurant or at home I wouldn’t really pick any healthy foods to eat. I was a young guy who moved to the big city and went out to party, drink, smoke and the whole nine yards that come with that lifestyle. Nothing I was doing was healthy during that time of my life. The years came and went and before I knew it I found myself weighing 370 lbs. I knew I had to do something soon. I had tried going to the gym and eat right in the past but I would give up and go back to my old habits. I would make excuses not to work out or eat right and would procrastinate on when I was going to get serious to get this part of my life fixed. I paid for a gym membership for about 8 years and only went to it a hand full of times.

Earlier this year I saw weight loss video of Arthur Boorman on You Tube. It was an inspiration and a reality check for me. I had to look in the mirror and say it’s time get serious and lose this weight, no more excuses. I purchased the DDP YOGA program and it was truly a godsend to me. It had everything I was looking for in a  workout. It’s low impact workout that wouldn’t cause pain in my knees. I thanked god that I had finally found a program that would work for ME. I knew that the work outs were only going to be half the battle. I remembered that I saw the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It’s a movie about an Australian man who came to America and did a juice fast for 60 days and lost a ton of weight. I knew that with the combination of DDP YOGA and Juice fasting would allow me to lose weight.  It was a win-win situation. I knew I had found a weight loss remedy that would truly work. Five and a half months later, I have lost 101 lbs and going strong. I am still a work in progress and I still plan to lose another 100lbs to meet my goal. I would highly recommend DDP YOGA to anyone. It truly is the best workout in the planet.


Anyone can do this program, if you don’t believe me check out Arthurs video. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired. If you want to change all the aspects of your life for the better, then all you have to do is  get your mind right. It’s all in between your eyes. I am convinced that your mind is the only thing holding you back from losing the weight.
