Charles Weight Loss Story

Name: Charles Austin ‘Chuck’ Hill
Weight: 335 lbs
Weight: 230 lbs
Why I Got Started
I had been battling weight issues for a long time. I had ballooned to over 330 lbs and had started worrying about my health. Then after Christmas my mother had heart troubles. I saw her in the hospital and it scared me really bad.
I looked at myself and for the first time saw myself as I really was; fat, out of shape and a heart attack in waiting. Until that day I had never looked at my self as anything other than fit, hot and ready for anything. What a rude awakening to see yourself for what you really are.
I have 2 young boys and they are my power. I never want to let them down or hurt them. After seeing my mom in the hospital I told my self that my boys will not see me like that if I can help it. I went to the gym and have not looked back.
How I Did It
Weight training and diet. I have done very little cardio. Lifting weights and trying to always go heavier than the time before gives me motivation. I might not be the strongest or most ripped man in the gym but I can be the hardest working man in the gym.
