A.J.'s Weight Loss Story!


weight loss success stories When did you become unhappy with your weight?

Ever since I was a young child. When I was 9 years old I started putting on weight and I fell into a deep depression and lost interest in all of the activities I loved. At the time I was having a lot of physical problems and it was hard to walk long distances since my knees would hurt from carrying the extra weight.

weight loss success stories What made you decide to lose weight?

I got out of a relationship which ended with a bad break up. I was humiliated by my ex-girlfriend when I was 19 and she obviously wasn't attracted to me which made me feel bad about myself and it really didn't help my depression at all. I had 2 really fit cousins and another one who just had a good metabolism. They were considered the best looking people in my family and I never got any looks from women so it made me think I wasn't good enough. I was fed up and finally joined a gym and the rest is history.

weight loss success stories What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?

Diet is the most important. I eat 6 small meals a day.

weight loss success stories What was most challenging about losing weight?

Staying committed especially when I would plateau for a week or two and even gain some weight back.

weight loss success stories How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?

All together to get to where I am now at 250 pounds, it took me 1.5 years but to lose the first hundred pounds it took about 11 months.

weight loss success stories How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?

I'm still losing.

weight loss success stories How has your life changed now that you've lost weight?

I have a lot more energy and the muscle definition I have now is beyond my wildest dreams. I'm stronger than ever and I'm benching 315 pounds for my max. I love to shop for clothes and I've been out on dates. I also love to run now. My drumming has improved and my all around stage presence has increased. I'm not camera shy and I feel a lot better about myself and now I'm studying to become a fitness trainer!
