Man lost 125 Pounds after seeing himself in the mirror.

A man who goes by the name DJ Andrews lost almost 125 pounds after catching a glimpse of himself in the mirror at the mall.

 

A man who goes by the name DJ Andrews lost almost 125 pounds after catching a glimpse of himself at the mall. He told huffington post that “For years, I was overeating due to lack of nutritional understanding and depression. Growing up, I was always overweight. Coming from a small town in rural Georgia, health and fitness typically aren't at the top of anyone's priority list. As far back as I can remember, from age 4 or 5, I'd be given massive portions of very unhealthy foods and would get very little or no physical activity afterward. Years of this led to me reaching my all-time highest weight of a little over 320 pounds”

He added that the breaking point came when he saw his reflection in a sliding glass door at the mall. And he knew the time has come for him to change.

Andrews said that he was fed up and constantly unhappy. He  said: “I decided to wake up early one morning in the fall of 2012 and go for a walk around my campus. I did that every single day afterward for almost two years. Walking the perimeter of campus three times is approximately 4.5 miles. I could barely do one mile at first, but I took my time and stayed consistent. The weight started coming off dramatically. Excited about the weight loss, I began changing my eating habits as well, and ate only things I cooked at home. Changing my eating habits plus walking really kicked my weight loss into high gear. Around late spring/early summer of 2013, I also started doing a lot of strength training to help tone up and build muscle. And by October 2013, a year since I'd started, I'd lost 100 pounds! I also began doing kettlebells, and then I completed the Insanity workout to maintain afterward.

He added that his life was different now he feels received by other people. He added that “Although I feel the same, but people are more welcoming to me. That may just be a self-esteem issue, or it could be because I'm actually interacting with others more than I used to. Before graduating last year, I started my own personal fitness group on campus and began helping others who are in the situation I was fortunate enough to break free from. I got a few other students who had seen me walking around campus and wanted to join, and we motivated each other to keep going. I also started a Facebook page dedicated to workout tips and recipes.

For the most part, losing weight has been a positive experience so far. But as with most people who lose such a drastic amount of weight, there are certain issues that arise, mainly having to deal with loose skin, which I am trying to get corrected currently

I hope that soon my appearance can reflect all the hard work and time that I've invested and that I can in turn, help others with my story and with the health and fitness knowledge I now have”

DJ Andrews is so proud of his weight loss and he currently weigh 195 pounds.
