A 39-year-old man has decided to completely change his life around to become a better father and husband to his family. In just six months, his determination and hard work have already achieved results so unbelievable, his family hardly recognize him.
In August, Montana-based antiques dealer Jeremiah Peterson went on a backpacking trip to a mountain lake with his children. Instead of remembering all the good memories we had made on this trip all I can remember is this one thing that kept playing in my head over and over again, Jeremiah wrote on his Instagram. I found myself running out of breath and having to take breaks way before my 9, 7, and 6-year-old kids.
Back in 2008, Sam Rouen won the third series of ‘The Biggest Loser,’ a reality TV show that pits overweight contestants against each other to see who can lose the highest percentage of body weight for a cash prize.
Aged just 19 at the time, Sam weighed a hefty 154kg when he started on the show, and by the end had lost an amazing 71kg. Now 29 and a fireman, it is clear that he has kept up his good habits since his appearance on the show after releasing a post reflecting on the 10 year period of his incredible transformation.
Many people make New Year’s resolutions, and many people break them, but as you can see from these incredible pictures (https://www.instagram.com/fatgirlfedup/), some people don’t just stick to them. They smash them!
Lexi Reed from Terre Haute, Indiana, weighed 485lbs back in 2016 while her husband Danny tipped the scales at 280lbs. Together they decided to get into shape and just eighteen months later the pair have lost almost 400lbs (28 stone) together!
An obese mum has transformed her life by taking selfies every day for a year and taking on her fears to help her shed nine stone after her husband’s suicide. Justine McCabe, 31, was gorging on fast food and barely left the house after hitting rock bottom following the death of her husband John Paul last February. Three months into mourning she was coaxed into going to the gym by family and friends to perk her up and encourage her to lose some of her hefty 313lb frame.
At 22 years old, Laura Micetich AKA ‘The Iron Giantess’ weighed over 300lbs and was facing a raft of health issues including hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, and prediabetes. She realized that without a radical change in diet and lifestyle, her precious youth would be lost already and she was facing a short and difficult life.
“I decided to take charge of my life and make a change,” she said. “After trying and failing to get a handle on my health numerous times, my weight had become a serious enough concern that I was considering weight loss surgery.”
