Yea, your story is just further proof that it just takes dedication and hard work to get your body how you want it to be. I know some people who used
to be incredibly fat, and thought maybe it was just genetics...but no, a friend of mine who was over 300 finally decided to stop eating junk, and
start working out, and the weight just came pouring off. He literally looked like a new person when I saw him again after not having hung out with
him in a while. I think he now weighs around 180, and looks completely normal, never like he was fat at all.
On the other hand, I know some people who just say "oh, yea, I should start going to the gym sometime" over and over, and yet never do it. Or if
they do try, then they half ass it, don't get results, and quit because they decide that it's impossible for them to lose weight. It just comes
down to having the right work ethic to getting it done. When I work out, I constantly tell myself "You better keep running this pace for 3 more
miles, or you're worthless, any pussy can run another 3 miles now, keep going", or I think about how every challenge to my body only makes me
stronger. You need to find the motivation.
There are no "secrets" of weight loss...anyone can lose or gain weight by changing their diet and exercise. No matter how bad your genetics are,
you can do it...it just comes down to will power, and desire to change. If not for your physical looks, at least for your health. However hard or
painful a workout may be, it will not kill you, and it will only improve your body, mind, and spirit. It's not a problem of "can" you do it, it's
a problem of not wanting to do it. And if your workout sucks, just remember that it's only one hour or so out of your day, and you can sit on your
ass the rest of the day if you want...but you better do that workout with some guts, and realize you wouldn't be doing anything more useful at that
The more it hurts, the stronger and better you become. Good luck.
