Been over weight my entire life growing. Finally decided enough was enough when my digital scale would read error when I weighed myself because it could read past 300 pounds. I changed my lifestyle. Gave up soda. Changed my diet. Started riding my bike. Got comfortable enough to start going to the gym. Lost weight and gained muscle.
In March of 2018, I fell three stories and suffered a slew of broken bones across my entire body including a fractured neck and fractured spine.
I was in the hospital for two weeks. Had emergency spinal fusion surgery.
That was the darkest and hardest time of my life. I was out of work for 7 months, out of the gym for a year. I became depressed. Very depressed. Lost any muscle gain I made. Gained weight.
But now I’m back to a mildly happy place in life and I continue to work on myself.
