Losing 40 plus pounds, fitting into size 32 waist pants, and getting under 205 pound - these were all huge physical accomplishments for me. Honestly I have not weighed under 210 since I was 13 or 14, and never fit in a 32” waist, definitely the best I have ever felt physically. Emotionally I had some fears to get over, being someone that has always been on the larger side (I was 300 pounds when I was 15) being the "big guy" has always been a part of my identity and I have always struggled with comparing myself to other people. In
the past I have done this challenge, but struggled with the fear of being too small or losing muscle or the thought of "What if I'm not happy with how I look when I'm leaner".
Because of these negative thoughts and fears in the past I feel I was unable to be my best and ultimately did not give it my max effort. With that said, my biggest success during this challenge was getting out of my head, and learning to trust the process and be more confident. No matter what the end result! I will say the last week I felt very very happy as I could finally see some ab definition for the first time in my life. That alone was such a rewarding feeling that made all the hard work more than worth it! I seriously always wanted abs, I mean who doesn't?
