    Ill start with family. I lost my mother to obesity in October 2014. my then 16 year old son came to me and say dad you have to fix yourself! I cant bury you like I did memaw.. I cried hearing it! I had to stop being a selfish ass and stop letting depression control my life. my wife was miserable due to the possibility I could drop dead at anytime. she is and always was in good shape, cooked healthy yet I refused to eat it and lived my shitty lifestyle that got me near death! I lost several so called friends that couldn't handle the fact I no longer drank and ate shit every night with them. I was blessed to have 2 friends that are lifters. 1 is garrett griffin who was with animal for years and now with iron rebel. the other is jarred the hype man that owns BOAD clothing. both took me under their wing and beat my ass numerous times in the gym. they never judged me when I was fat and still support me today. no lost love on the friends I lost because I gained many more that live this lifestyle, the one I have come to love along with many here on this board. SNAKE has had my back since day 1 too! I leaned on him several times. I am far from my goals but dammit im well on my way!

    Very impressive BD. Took a lot of guts and discipline to do what you did. Im sure there were times where you wanted to give up, but you didn't! Just goes to show what a strong mind can accomplish. Priorities brother. Much respect to you!

    Thanks for sharing your story BD ... although I've been around since 2012 I hadn't heard it before today ... so many us need to hear that the lifestyle over time along with discipline, work-ethic, and a good diet can and do make a transformation like the one you've modeled possible ... your results speak for themselves ... and they are fvching impressive ...!!
