Talking 90 lbs lost

7 years ago on my 30th birthday I weighed 265lb. At 5'10" that is extremely overweight. My doctor was very concerned for my health. And a friend of mine at 31 had a heart attack. After this my wife bought me a treadmill and I started to walk everyday; while watching TV I would walk in stead of sitting on the couch. Eventually I started to run and by the end of the first month I lost 20lbs. From then on I was hook. I started lifting weights and running outside a lot. I cut out fast food and started working on eating healthy. Reading every book I could find; I eventually became a certified personal trainer, just as a way of learning more about fitness. By the end of the third year of this, I was down to 175 lbs; I was a personal trainer and I had people asking me to train them. Now at 37 years old; I own my own training facility; I lift much heavier weights and I am at a very healthy 205lbs. I eat clean every day, workout everyday, take the correct vitamins and love my new life.

He survived the heart attack, although it was a pretty bad one. I no longer work at that employer since I opened y own gym, but as of the time I left he was back to his old eating habits and smoking.

Congrats Shane on your success in changing your life. That is amazing and def. something to be proud of! It's a shame that your former coworker didn't change their lifestyle, but nice to see what a turnaround you have made.
