With 348 pounds, Fitzroy Powell Jr. has cleared the drive-through penalty – and regained his life. When he learned to cook, he lost over 130 pounds. This is his story, as she told Maria Masters.
I've always been heavy, but my weight has not always bothered me. In high school, I played defensively, and my 5 & # 39; 10, 315-pound frame was an advantage on the field. Sure, I had some fat on me, but I was strong and active. That changed in 2014 when I started college. Not only did I stop exercising, but I also began to ask why I am at school at all. I felt directionless, so in the dining room I searched for comfort, where I ate everything on the menu: pizza, chicken, burgers, cakes. Over the next two years, I've gained another 30 pounds.
Spring 2017 came I was halfway through college and working in a local movie theater where I left popcorn and snacks after closing in. One night instead of going home, I stopped at Taco Bell and ordered almost everything I ate most of the food on the way back home and cleaned the leftovers later that night Then, a few hours later, I ate again I felt sick in my stomach, I remember thinking as I did Why am I doing this for me? At last I thought there was enough, I knew I needed to change something, at that point I was 348 pounds
