• Through years of unhealthy eating habits, Kevin O & Connor's weight rose to over 200 pounds.
• O & # 39; Connor promised to lose weight before he turned 40 and get six-pack abdominals.
• After making simple changes, such as combining the CICO diet with a hybrid workout routine, O & Connor completed a dramatic 70-pound weight loss transformation.
Kevin O'Connor was just like many ordinary people – a hard-working father who had trouble properly exercising or eating, disguising unhealthy food, and drinking only a little too much. That is, until he remembered a simple childhood promise he had made himself: to have a six-pack until his 39th birthday.
That promise has almost fallen by the wayside. "I had been trying to lose weight for years, but I always saw it as a diet and a temporary solution," says O & Connor, 41
When he was 20, O & Connor had given up all the sports he practiced. The work began to take over his life. It was not long before he reached his worst point and put 211 pounds on his 5-foot 8-frame. In the next few decades he hovered more or less there. However, when he turned 39, O'Connor had a momentous year in which he gave birth to a beautiful little girl. The event triggered the memory of the promise he had made about his health.
"When I was a boy, maybe 11 or 12 years old, I saw a journal cover – it could have been Men's Health – and the cover said," Even with 39 can you still have six -pack "and that has always grabbed me," says O & Connor. In his twenties, he thought, "I have years to 39," so he continued to eat and drink what he wanted. Because of this behavior, when he was 39, O & # 39; Connor felt that he was far behind his goals.
"I was disappointed that I did not keep my childhood promise and that my daughter would now have a fat, overweight father," says O'Connor. Dissatisfied with this thought, O'Connor revised his goal: instead of getting a six-pack before 39, he got a six-pack during 39.
