What Was Your Life Like Before Your Transformation?
I was an alcoholic for 15 years, but quit cold turkey June 8th, 2014. I started in the gym June 10th of 2014.
This lifestyle saved my life. The more I got into lifting the better I wanted to be. So, I smoked cigarettes for 22 years and said, "Hey, if I going to do this, I needed to be all in." So I have now been a NON smoker for 9 months, and feeling better and better.
Watching Marc Lobliner on YouTube has helped me more then I can ever say. I hang on to his words of "this is a lifestyle." Over time, it does become a lifestyle. Thank you so much Marc.

My turning point was finding a better addition, "the gym." Watching the Tiger Fitness YoUTube videos helped me make that decision.
