Weight has pretty much always been a struggle for me for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I was always the chubby kid and even throughout my teenage years I was always the big guy. Fortunately enough for me, I was never teased because of my weight so I didn’t develop any long-term insecurities or struggles with self-image or self-esteem (thank God).

However, as I ventured into college I had similar weight struggles as I did in my adolescent years. I was notoriously known around my campus as “Big Sexy” and loved and praised for my stocky posture and solid frame.

It wasn’t until after college that I really began to understand that my weight was the result of an unhealthy lifestyle and sought to make changes. I decided to attempt to change, not because I was unhappy with myself, but because I knew I couldn’t continue to live the same unhealthy life in my adult years starting a career and understanding that life is o to reanly what you make it.
