I first met nick in my Marketing 377 class this semester. We found classmates who were looking for teammates for a class project and that’s how Nick and I met. He was an interesting cat to say the least. But as we got the talking I found out that he was going through this major transformation. Nick definitely knows first hand how hard it is to reach a goal, but in the end, the result is bitter sexy. Here’s my interview with Nick:
Me:What motivated you to lose weight?
Nick:I loved being big but felt as though I started to look fat (as the pictures show you). When I was at my biggest I was 205lbs at 5’10 and then got into an accident and when I got out of the hospital was 160lbs with hardly and strength or muscle. So first thing I did was worked out and ate to get big again but then also later to cut the fat off since I didn’t want to look fat again. Which is what I am still doing now.
Me:How much weight have you lost since you started?
Nick:After the accident the biggest I have got was 195lbs and now I am 160lbs so 35lbs.
Me:What kind of workout plan are you doing?
Nick:I am doing a workout plan I created and a lot of cardio on the elliptical.
Me:What kind of diet are you doing?
Nick:I have done several diets but the most effective I have come to realize is just being in a calorie deficit while eating healthy foods.
Me:How many times a week do you work out?
Nick:I work out 5 times a week.
Me:What are the foods you’re not allowed to eat?
Nick:Pizza, white bread/white rice/and things or that nature, also fast food.
Me:What would you tell yourself(the individual before your weight loss) if they were struggling with the idea of going through with such a demanding goal?
Nick:I have seen people transform their bodies that were not even in the shape I was in when I started so if they could do it so could I.
Me:What’s the most important thing you’ve learned through this transition?
Nick:Cut your weight slowly so you preserve your muscle mass or you will just be ripped with hardly any muscle.
Me:On a scale from 1-10, how sexy do you think you are?
Nick:You decide haha.
LOL! Nick, from the pic at the top, you’re an 11 on my list(no homo). I really appreciate Nick giving me his story because it shows that there are people out there fighting temptations and the results are paying off. It’s nice to have Nick in 2 of my classes, because it motivates me to stay on track, because I know someone else is doing the same. If at all possible find someone who is currently going through a transformation, someone close to you. Don’t wait for someone to start with you because there’s a high chance of them dropping out and you losing your motivation. Definitely find someone who’s on track and already fighting for their goal.
