Transformation Tuesday: John R.

Transformation Tuesday: John R.

"I have always been morbidly obese. Deep down, I knew that. But to me, being fat was more about not being able to find clothes I liked because I could only wear 4X-large, having zero self-esteem, hating the way I looked, being always chronically tired, and yeah, being totally ashamed of the way I looked.

But the fact that I was morbidly—as in death—obese didn’t sink in until my mother died from a heart attack and my sister fell into a coma because of her type 2 diabetes. That’s when I knew I had bigger problems than just finding clothes that fit.

So I promised myself that one day I’d do P90X. Seriously—that was my goal. But I was afraid. A friend of mine who was a Beachbody Coach said that Power 90 would be a great place to start. At 467 lbs., it was tough. But I stayed with it. I modified. I struggled. I did push-ups on my knees. And I kept at it because I was seeing results, reaching goals, and crushing the “I can’t do it” beliefs that had held me back for so long.

And finally, I was ready for P90X. It was hardcore, intense, extreme, and it worked.

So far, I’ve lost over 200 lbs. I’ve gone from a size 56 pants to a size 38, thanks to Power 90 and P90X. I’m healthier, happier, and I’m finally proud of the man I see in the mirror.

Best of all, I’m not stopping. At 264 lbs., I know I still have a way to go. But I’m determined to make it. " - John
