At the age of 8 years old all the way to the age of 21 I was morbidly obese. In 2008 my sister passed away and I fell into a deep depression. Eating and drug use became my way of dealing with the stress. After stepping on the scale weighting in at 330lbs in 2010, I made a new year’s resolution to take control of my life physically and mentally.
Ever since I was little, my parents made sure we were active. I played sports year-round my entire life.
When I stopped playing sports in college to focus on academics; I lost a little bit of myself. I gained a ton of weight and wasn’t focused on my faith, on bettering myself or on how I talked to myself.
