    the only time i can get under 1600 is if i don't work, where i can prepare food at home and am not forced to eat snacks all day

I once ate 34 slices of pizza at an eating contest (winning of course); to be that overweight and able eat that much as a teenager was very risky. If I had stayed on that path I would not expect to live a very long or healthy life. My body is still covered in stretch marks from just how over weight I was.

Growing up I was teased and made fun of at school, I was terrified to ever take my shirt off in public. I would fake being sick whenever we had to go swimming for class, and wouldn’t enjoy going to the beach because I could never take my shirt off like my friends and class mates. I didn’t enjoy a lot of things growing up because of the fact that I was overweight. I knew I was different, and I knew that people looked at me differently. One day I just had enough, promising myself that I will make a change. I had a dream, a dream that one day I will have one of the most amazing bodies people have ever seen. I saw the people on the cover of fitness and bodybuilding magazines and pictured myself looking like that. I wanted a body that looked like it was sculpted out of stone. The body of my dreams! After being so self-conscious of my image all those years, it made me want something that was exceptional, not normal. I never was normal, so why start now I figured. I wanted to change my body, and I was willing to work as hard as I possibly could to make it happen. No one ever believed I could do though. How can a fat kid that can’t stop eating have an impressive body? No one believed I could even lose any weight, yet alone have a sculpted 6 pack. This doubt, this “hate” just made me want it even more. I wasn’t just doing this for myself anymore; I was doing to prove everyone wrong. I had faith in myself, that I could achieve anything I put my mind to. I had a dream, and I wasn’t going to let anyone or anything stand in my way! I'm now an aspiring fitness model/bodybuilder, and I want to continue to prove others wrong on the path to all my dreams!

    Below are some of my pictures. It is great to be on here and see everyone else's transformations, it is really inspiring as I know exactly what they went through! Keep training hard, eating smart and may all your dreams come true!
    that is absolutely amazing.. got any secrets? and how does it feel to accomplish something so great like that?

    Thank you so much! It feels so good to have come so far, and that's why I love this thread because I know what everyone else on here has gone through. It's great to see everyone else's transformations, it's really inspiring. No secreats really, just a lot of hard and SMART work... My advice is to stay consistant and be mentally strong, very strong! I know I have been down at times wanting to quit, and I'm sure others on here did too, but the main thing is to keep going. If you are able to push yourself mentally, it will take you to the next level. Your body will go as far as your mind will, so push your self as much as possible. Another thing is the human body is a miraculous thing, it will adapt to almost anything you give it. So with that, you must always change your workout and diet. Even if you have a flawless workout and diet, your body will adapt and your gains will start to slow down. So you are almost in a chess match with your body, always thinking steps ahead. In order to bust through your genetic limitations you have to out smart your body. I always change my workouts (intensity, reps, sets, weights, exercises, routine...) to keep my body guessing and always making gains. I get great rsults from carb/calorie cycling, I feel with this approach I never slow down in terms of my progress. The thing is there is no "one size fits all" diet or workout, everyone is different. So always try new things to see what works best for you!
    Good luck with your fitness goals, I love to see others transformations and stories, it is really inspiring!

    From right to left:

    2011 Aug - 82kg - 18-20% BF

    2012 Jan - 80kg - 14-18% BF

    2012 Sep - 77kg 10-12% BF

    BF percentages were calculated on the InBody 520. No idea how accurate this machine is.

    Kept a simple diet. No counting cals. Only stuck to a rule. Small breakfast, decent sized lunch, small dinner.

    Goal = Lean athletic look

    You made an incredible transformation for yourself. Good job!
    Bodybuilding is not weight and repetitions; itís resistance and absolute muscle failure. Itís not quantitative; itís qualitative. Itís more mental than physical. Itís more control than rage. Itís the realization that you can always get bigger. ~ bodybuilding

    Below are some of my pictures. It is great to be on here and see everyone else's transformations, it is really inspiring as I know exactly what they went through! Keep training hard, eating smart and may all your dreams come true!

    **** me sideways..

    Top two were my befores. I didn't start making headway until last year with my weight loss. The second picture was taken in March 2011, and the recent ones were between Sept and now

    Bodybuilding is not weight and repetitions; itís resistance and absolute muscle failure. Itís not quantitative; itís qualitative. Itís more mental than physical. Itís more control than rage. Itís the realization that you can always get bigger. ~ bodybuilding

    Good god, you sir are a boss. That is a crazy transformation, only the likes of the Greek Gods themselves can describe. Not trying to undermine your progress or anything of the sort, but when were you on the sauce at all bro? Either way sauce or no sauce, you are my inspiration.
    People say all of this crap about genetics this, genetics that. I will never let genetics tell me what I can and cannot do..

    People are starting to comment on the physical changes. My mental state is sharp right now as well, so I feel great. I ran my nine miles today in 1hr 45min and 45sec that felt awesome. I did two double days this week, didnt go off the boat for Turkey Day, and have been actually eating my 1800 not going under 1400 this week. Other than that I am starting to worry about going home for winter. Im going home for three weeks, and when Im home, Im afraid Ill fall back into my old habits. I dont know how Im going to do it, or if I should even worry. I really dont feel iike going home to be honest. Its 21 days I can spend doing double days before my next semester starts.

I'm looking into getting into some natural physique comps hopefully next year. Just got to keep working hard and going after my dreams! Thanks again for that comment, love the part about the Greek Gods, very creative! I'm so gald that I can inspire others, it's an amazing feeling. I just want to show everyone that you can do anything you put your mind too!!!

    Thank you so much bro, really appreciate it! No secreats really, just a lot of hard and SMART work... My advice is to stay consistant and be mentally strong, very strong! I know I have been down at times wanting to quit, and I'm sure others on here did too, but the main thing is to keep going. If you are able to push yourself mentally, it will take you to the next level. Your body will go as far as your mind will, so push your self as much as possible. Another thing is the human body is a miraculous thing, it will adapt to almost anything you give it. So with that, you must always change your workout and diet. Even if you have a flawless workout and diet, your body will adapt and your gains will start to slow down. So you are almost in a chess match with your body, always thinking steps ahead. In order to bust through your genetic limitations you have to out smart your body. I always change my workouts (intensity, reps, sets, weights, exercises, routine...) to keep my body guessing and always making gains. I get great rsults from carb/calorie cycling, I feel with this approach I never slow down in terms of my progress. The thing is there is no "one size fits all" diet or workout, everyone is different. So always try new things to see what works best for you!
    Good luck with your fitness goals, I love to see others transformations and stories, it is really inspiring!

    You look really young in that photo in comparison to your most recent photos. How much do you attribute your changes to growing up. Just curious.
    Thanks

    Growing up I was always the fat kid struggling with weight and eating problems throughout my life. I reached over 300 pounds (130 kg, 28% body fat) by the age of 16, and I was heading towards a very dangerous path. I once ate 34 slices of pizza at an eating contest (winning of course); to be that overweight and able eat that much as a teenager was very risky. If I had stayed on that path I would not expect to live a very long or healthy life. My body is still covered in stretch marks from just how over weight I was. I always hated them, trying to find out ways to get rid of them. Now, I love them! They are my ďtattooísĒ, they are scars that I will have for life constantly reminding me every day of where I have been, what I have done to be where I am today. Growing up I was teased and made fun of at school, I was terrified to ever take my shirt off in public. I would fake being sick whenever we had to go swimming for class, and wouldnít enjoy going to the beach because I could never take my shirt off like my friends and class mates. I didnít enjoy a lot of things growing up because of the fact that I was overweight. I knew I was different, and I knew that people looked at me differently. One day I just had enough, promising myself that I will make a change. I had a dream, a dream that one day I will have one of the most amazing bodies people have ever seen. I saw the people on the cover of fitness and bodybuilding magazines and pictured myself looking like that. I wanted a body that looked like it was sculpted out of stone. The body of my dreams! After being so self-conscious of my image all those years, it made me want something that was exceptional, not normal. I never was normal, so why start now I figured. I wanted to change my body, and I was willing to work as hard as I possibly could to make it happen. No one ever believed I could do though. How can a fat kid that canít stop eating have an impressive body? No one believed I could even lose any weight, yet alone have a sculpted 6 pack. This doubt, this ďhateĒ just made me want it even more. I wasnít just doing this for myself anymore; I was doing to prove everyone wrong. I had faith in myself, that I could achieve anything I put my mind to. I had a dream, and I wasnít going to let anyone or anything stand in my way! I'm now an aspiring fitness model/bodybuilder, and I want to continue to prove others wrong on the path to all my dreams!

    Below are some of my pictures. It is great to be on here and see everyone else's transformations, it is really inspiring as I know exactly what they went through! Keep training hard, eating smart and may all your dreams come true!
    wow bro...I can't believe you're a true inspiration ... you have all my respect
