Week 1 Results: Fat or Not!

As a Kid, I was always bigger than the rest. You know how kids will ask their parents what they did when they were little. Well, I never was little. As a 6 year old, I was 4’3” tall and weighed 68lbs.

If you don’t know, that is the average size of a 3rd grader(9 or 10 year old boy).
In the 6th grade, I was 5’10”.
As a freshman, I was 6’2” and weighed 215 lbs.

As a senior in high school, I was 6’5” and weighed about 270lbs.

Junior year (Graduation usher)

Freshman year in College

Stephanie's(baby sister) graduation. After my first year of College.
I weighed about 320 lbs

I think you can get the drift, I was a big Kid. Here’s a question for your? As you look at the pictures that I’ve posted do you see a fat kid? There is no doubt that today, I am fat, that’s why I am doing this challenge, but back then I was not fat. I grew up with such low self esteem due to the fact that people constantly called me fat because I wasn’t some little kid like they were. Most people don’t know that about me. Most of my friends then would assume that I like being the big guy. The truth is I wanted to be the little guy. At this point in my life, I don’t want to be the little guy, I’m comfortable being the big guy, I just want to be a smaller version of that guy.
That’s my goal, a 100lbs less of me!
