Brandon has transformed his life and is an inspiration to others
Here is his story:
Last summer, I couldn’t carry grocery bags up my stairway without feeling exhausted. I needed to sit down to just breathe. I suddenly came to the conclusion that I was disturbingly out of shape. Not only that, I’d get out of breath chasing my 3-year old daughter around the park. I tried going to the gym by myself because apparently, that is what people do when they feel fat and out of shape.
The problem was that I wasn’t getting any results. I was already feeling angry but this put me in an even worse mood. At the same time, my friend, Michael Foster, was in the process of becoming a personal trainer and asked if I would sign up as his client. I told him “absolutely” because I knew I needed the help.
The week before I was to start training, I went on a vacation to Hawaii. It turned out to be a complete food and alcohol binge. Sadly, I don’t remember much of the trip. On September 26th, 2007, five days after the vacation, I showed up at the gym for my first session with Michael. While I hated feeling very weak and slow, I knew that Mike was helping me to take steps in the right direction. For three days after my first workout, I could barely move, but it felt so good for some reason. Not only was he helping me to work out but he was helping me with my diet too. Before I began working out, I was eating fast food probably 4-7 times a week. I had to immediately stop that habit. It didn’t take long at all to start seeing results. It was almost instantaneous. Although I weighed 240 pounds so I had a lot of weight to lose. In a month I lost 10 pounds just by eating well and working out with Mike a couple times a week. I continued to lose 10 pounds a month for four months straight.
By the end of February 2008, I weighed in less than 200 pounds for the first time in 6 years.
I couldn’t have felt any better! For the first time in a very long time, I was actually happy with myself. I wasn’t waking up everyday mad at the world. I enjoyed life again. Carrying groceries was no longer a problem. Playing with my daughter just got better and better every day because I knew that what I was accomplishing would also extend my life. I never thought of it this way before, but it turned out that I was not only doing this for me, but for everyone who cared about me. Since February, I lost another 20 pounds and people are constantly telling me how much happier I seem and how much better I look. I know that I couldn’t have done this without the help of Mike and everyone at Innovative Results.
