Up until a year and a half ago, I was morbidly obese my entire life. In the course of a year I went from 350 pounds to 196 pounds, totaling 154 pounds lost. I lost this weight all naturally: no pills, no operations...just a lot of gumption, hard work, and lifestyle changes. To learn my entire story, click the "My Story: Being PHAT" link below.
Not only did I gain my health back, but also a new love and passion for exercise and healthy living, and helping others find their love for these things too.
The idea for PHAT Like Me stemmed from the people around me asking for advice on not only how they could reach their own personal weight loss goals, but obtain my new positive outlook on life too. From the conversations I had with these friends and family members grew the concept for PHAT Like Me.
Being PHAT is about eating healthy, acting healthy, but more than anything else thinking healthy! We're not striving for perfection, but for happiness! And happiness starts with feeling good in your own skin.
PHAT Like Me is about spreading the vigor for life I gained after saving my own life. All I want to do is help others be happy and healthy and satisfied with every day they have. One small change can lead to another, and before you know it you've accomplished so much more than you ever thought you could. We are capable of so much more than we can ever imagine, and all you have to do is take that first step forward to be one step closer to unlocking your true potential. So let's do this!
I am here now to inspire. I want to help those people who are out there that are willing to deal with the craziness that is my brain brave their own personal journeys to a sound body, sound mind, and fantastic, fulfilling life!
If you're ready to get PHAT Like Me, then stick around!!! HOLLA
