Growing up, he was always the ‘biggest guy’ in the school and his size seemed to be normal to him. At 15, he weighed 252 lbs. He used to play football with his friends most nights after school but one thing lead to another; he was doing nothing while eating junk food.

When he was in college, he was consistent with no exercise and eating a lot of fast food for three years.

In the last year of February, he reached his heaviest weight of 454 lbs. He was in depression because he didn’t know how to change his habits.

He then realized that his health was at risk when he couldn’t even make it to the second floor without struggling. He was encouraged by his friend to sign up for an intense six-week boot camp. He lost 49 lbs and after his girlfriend left him, his weight reached 266 lbs.
