It wasn't bad until I lost the girl I loved. Then I went through some rough times.
At one point I needed to evacuate the anger so I started running. Then I joined the closest gym. Before I knew it I started to like working out. I was happier and I felt better.
I didn't get the girl back, but I think I was able to recapture my own life. This was a million times better.
What Were Your Major Struggles or Challenges?
At the beginning it was the cardio. I couldn't even run for 10 minutes at a rate of 9 kilometers per hour. But I knew it would come eventually, so I didn't stop. Now I can make 30 minutes straight, sometimes at 15 kilometers per hour. I do this just before my workout routine.

I didn't enough money and knowledge of supplements at the time so I didn't use them.
What Was Your Major Accomplishment, or Major Milestones?
To me it was to be able to run three times for 30 minutes at 15km/h, and then to do my workout routine. This made made my workout a total of 4 hours and 30 minutes. Then I would go do cardio HIIT training with some friends, and top it off with an outside coaching session.
I wasn't even tired the next day. Guess it was one of those days.

3 Biggest Things You Learned During Your Transformation?
- The power of motivational speeches

Workout for yourself. If you need an impulse find it in your deep regrets, pains, and sorrow. But after you have passed the first mark, go for it only for the sake of being happy. Selfish workout I'd say.
It feels like superpowers. So, if you want to taste what it feels to be like Superman, go for it!
