140 LB Body transformation – Fat To Fit – Amazing Fitness Transformation
100 Comments


– It was the year 2007,
my daughter was just born and, as you can see I was obese. I was unhappy. I had high blood pressure,
borderline diabetic. And, I was getting ready
to embark on yet another failed weight loss mission. And, over the next seven
years I’d be go on about 20 of these missions where
I would crash and burn at the end and end up gaining
back every ounce that I lost. It was a vicious cycle that
went on for way too long. I didn’t feel good about myself. My self esteem was shot. It was ruining my relationships. It was ruining my life. I had just gotten a divorce. And, I was having thoughts of suicide. I’d just recently gotten in some trouble and had my whole life turned upside down. And, I had to do
something to take control. So, I decided to transform my body. From that day forward I
was a man on a mission. I ate, slept, dreamed exercise and nutrition. I engulfed my entire life in this mission of transforming my body. And, in the process I
learned so much about myself. I learned so much about life. I was relentless. – [Trainer] Get some
air, buddy, get some air. There you go, just like I told you. (mumbles) There you go, yeah, yeah, stop. – [Boy] Then can we see you? – [Robert] See what? – How many pounds you lost. Oh, big feet. – [Both Kids] Oh! – [Robert] For the first time in my life I found something that
I was actually good at, something that made me feel good. I literally read every piece
of fitness and nutrition literature that I could get my hands on. I probably spent thousands
of hours just researching and trying different exercise routines and trying different diet
plans and figuring out what works best for me. Within the first nine
months I probably lost about 80 or 90 pounds and
I felt like a new man. It’s indescribable. I had changed my relationship with food. Exercise was my new oxygen. I became addicted to
watching my body change. And, I also became
addicted to this feeling of control, this new feeling of control that I had over my life, over my body, over my emotions, over my thoughts. God was assigning a task to my life. And, fitness was the
way he was communicating this mission to me. It felt so spiritual. And, though it was happening
in the gym it felt so much bigger than just my personal
fitness transformation. This is more than just
about me and my body. This is about something
much bigger than me. My journey of fitness took me
on some really crazy paths. But, one thing about it,
no matter what the obstacle in front of me, I never gave up. I was relentless even when
the discipline ran out. I was relentless even when
I didn’t want to do it. I was relentless even when I
messed up and I gained weight. You know, there was times
I gained weight 20, 30, 40 pounds back, but I never gave up. I was relentless. And, as a result I was
able to achieve things with my body that I didn’t
even think were possible, things that were unimaginable. Like, who would have
thought that me, the obese 360 pound kid would have a six pack? Who would ever thought
that an obese 360 pound kid would be on stage competing
in a physique competition with dudes that had been
in shape all their lives? Nothing’s impossible. I’m possible. And, if I can do it anybody can do it. (uplifting music)

  2. Much respect to you . I normally weigh 145 but once I got to trucking industry I gain to 185 now and I’m planning to lose weight back to my normally weight but it’s hard bro.. Really need motivation for this one.

  3. I’ve been trying to lose weight for so long. I’m 340. I always try different diets and working out but I always crash. Congratulations man, I know it’s hard to lose I hope to lose weight some day.

  4. Thank you brother!!!
    I’m 100% at this point and I’m lost.
    I watch ur video now every single DAY!!! my goal 12 weeks

  5. I am 16 years old, 300.3lbs.
    I just started ANOTHER weight loss journey. I always start and give up. Not this time. This video is very inspiring man.

  6. I cant believe that I’m not the the only person that had experienced the same exact lifestyle as me it makes me feel happy and confident about weight loss the only problem is I got nobody to do it with and that’s why I’m not confident enough to loss weight on my own

  7. You're video really motivated me I've always seen people that are big and get fit. But at the same time I never seen anyone with my body structure like yours. Your video video has shown me that it is possible to get fit and have a nice chest again thank you for making this video 💯

  8. Thank you so much for sharing your transformation. Your opening statement about the years of failed weight loss and start again it is truly my story. I pray that I finish this time around. Your story has truly inspired me to believe it is really possible with discipline, hard work and God……God Bless You

  9. Everything in the beginning of this video mirrors me. I've been doing the yoyoing with diets. Weight lifting I have no problems with except making it a lifestyle. Putting everything else more important than me. I guess I should take my own advice I give my pts; how can you help anyone when you are broken down. Thus, before I break down I need to fix myself. The only difference in me and the before you is 40 lbs.
    Gonna use you as inspiration. Thank you sincerely.

  10. thanks man seriously i mean that you gave me that push i needed to keep going on iam going through the same thing so thanks ✌️

  11. Absolutely amazing, I've been on my own journey for 4 and half a months now, and 38kgs lighter 🥰🥰🥰, keep on pushing!!!!!!!

  12. What up Brix? I’m from Va too (Chesapeake) I’m trying to do the same thing!! But I believe I need a coach. I was 290 at the start of last year. I’m 238 now but I can’t seem to get muscle definition. And to be honest I seem to lose focus sometimes… maybe because my gym is my home hahaha!! Hit me up tho I would love to met up. And pick ya brain.

  13. dont leave gym before 6 months and then you wouldnt quit 😛 … biggest motivation is when u see changes , that derives you crazy 😀

  14. nice fooling. guys what ever is shown in video just reverse it. he was already ripped and then he gained lots of fat. and made stupid video of his heartbreak drama. dont get fooled. not every thing is real. i have seen guys working out for fuking 15years so dont fool me.

  15. This is crazy !! A CRAZY TRANSFORMATION !! very motivating sir !! A huge respect !!! Guys trust me rather than being motivated for just a min after watching such motivational videos why don't you just embed that in your mind and heart and then work on it and be successful ! I wish you all the best !!!!

  16. I want to add my 2 cents to the video….a lot of people don’t realize that major weight gain and obesity isn’t always about overeating or eating the wrong types of foods. Alcohol plays a significant role in getting fat. You could eat salads, fruits, and drink protein shakes all day, but if you’re drinking beer and/or hitting the bottle, your weight is gonna skyrocket. I’m shedding that alcohol weight now and has no desire to drink anymore. There’s no point to it.

  17. Blessings brother. I'm on a similar path. I have a debilitating condition that nearly killed me. I'm at the genesis of a miraculous comeback. I look forward to sharing my story some day. You sir are an overcomer and an inspiration.

  18. this is truly amazing……what he went through….not just being obese but the obstacles beyond that….he was imperturbed and kept gloing…

  19. Ure such an inspiration..I cried thru this video 😭..I'm battling with a lot of health issues like hypothyroid, ovarian cysts, uric acid n obesity but I'm on a mission to be fit again to be healthy again and I'm not giving up untill I see the six packs in my abs☺️..Sending love and support and prayers to everyone who are going thru rough times in their lives..Don't give up we will make it thru 😘🤗

  20. Thanks for uploading this man, i needed it, am on my own journey now, went from 92 kg to 81 and i’m seeing change in my arms chest and stomach your story and progress just makes want fight harder

    Anyone who is on their weight loss journey and becoming fit i know you can do it, never give up no matter the circumstances, progress may be slow but at some point it will become a regular part of your life and eventually like this guy said in the video, you will become addicted to seeing your body change!

    God bless and hope you’ll reach your goal💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿

  21. Desde Argentina, gracias por tu ejemplo de asumir una gran responsabilidad como lo es preocuparse y ocuparse del cuerpo dejado, y transformarlo en dedicación esmero y amor por el mismo.

  22. Very inspiring, I need to reduce 40 pounds of fat and get more muscle… but don’t know how to get this type of will power..🤔you are a great example.
