One man is reminding everyone that it is gratifying to take care of ourselves. Not only so you would look good, but most importantly is for you to feel good about yourself.
Nicholas La Monaco finally decided to take control of his life after neglecting his body for ten long years. He gained a lot of weight on the process and lost a lot of self-esteem. But he has decided enough is enough.
Nicholas started to face the problem instead of ignoring it like he usually did before.
“I faced one stunning and painful realization after another over the next few days. I didn’t have a ‘big frame,’ I wasn’t a ‘burly guy,’ my thick beard and open-buttoned flannels weren’t an attempt at style but to try and hide myself. It wasn’t ‘always hot’ in everyone else’s car and house, I was just fat and overdressed. I was now 5’7″ and 300lbs, and it was severely affecting my health and lifestyle.”
That’s when he decided to do something about it and started to make little changes in his lifestyle. Although he probably wanted to lose all the excess weight as soon as possible, Nicholas knew that the only way to make his weight loss journey successful is through hard work and perseverance.
Nicholas’ weight loss journey taught him a lot of lessons, especially things about himself.
“At the start, it was only about losing weight, the number on the scale, and something physical. But as the months went by, I began to learn more about myself than I ever imagined.”
Now, Nicholas has lost 150 lbs. He went from size 3XL to Small. His waist was from 44 inches to 28 inches. He said that his body transformation is not the best part of his weight loss journey. it was having the energy to go through the day.
