How I Gained It: I was always a husky kid, but athletic. I was always outside running around with friends or playing some kind of sport. In my 20s, I focused more on playing video games and not doing really much of anything. I loved anything deep-fried. I ate fried chicken, French fries, pizza, breadsticks and lots and lots of fast food. I would eat out 90 percent of the time. In January 2013, I weighed in at 450 pounds.
Breaking Point: When I turned 30, I realized that in 10 years, when I would be turning 40, my daughter would be 17, close to graduating high school. If I did not do something soon, I would not make it to see her graduate or grow up.
