420 Pound Model / 404 againAfter weeks of consistent weight loss , Eric suffered his first setback . From 420 pounds , his weight plummeted to 404 in just under two months . A week of overeating put some of the pounds back . Going up to 412 would prove disastrous for most men , but not for our model.
After gaining 8 lbs. in as many days , Eric was puzzled and asked if he’d done something wrong . After some discussion , the culprit (food prep, and bleu cheese salad dressing) was revealed . It turned out that between some misunderstanding , and food preparation mistakes , he had been eating three times the calories he’d assumed.
Willing to put in extra work , Eric gladly accepted the alterations to the weeks workout plan in an effort to cut the extra weight . Without complaint , or hesitation , he diligently went about his assignment and lost the 8 pounds in only six days .
Resposibility is the key . Regardless of the reason , extra calories means extra weight . By accepting himself , and his choices , Eric accepted responsibility . His response was to take action .
I am proud of Eric . Proud of his courage , his honesty. I am proud to call him my friend , and proud to be his . To watch his spirit fill the room when he laughs , all while I drive his body to it’s limits , is inspirational .
I am proud to be his trainer .
