Austin Sher remembers that for years he hated looking at himself in the mirror. "I felt like a human slug or at least as close as possible," he says. "I felt worthless and nothing else was really important than my next meal." In its heaviest form, Sher weighed more than 250 kilograms, a number he tried to ignore – until one day he could not. He was in the hospital, preparing for an appendectomy operation. When he entered the scale, the reality of his weight gain hit him more than ever.
"I remember seeing the number and promising to make a change when everything is healed," he says. In the weeks that followed, Sher planned what he was going to do with his new body and imagined the restored trust he would eventually feel.
Sherry, a 25-year-old search engine marketing manager based in Santa Monica, California, says he spent most of his life battling his weight, and his unhealthy diet was the biggest culprit , "Undoubtedly, family outings and a diet made up of fast food, over-dinner dinner and lounging with almost zero exercise were the biggest contributors," he says. "The routine was McDonald's, watching television for hours, repeating."
After fully recovering from the operation, Sher stuck to the promise he had made to himself and initially focused on himself to raise from the couch. "The first day I was cleared for practice, I dragged myself down the street and did a lap, turning one out into two, and day after day I tried to beat my time and distance," he says. Sher also began to shy away from social and family outings, where he knew the temptation to eat too much would be great. Eventually, he turned to the Internet for advice and sought advice on forums and subreddits such as R / Fitness and R / Bodybuilding.
