Hi, my name is Shea Reid and I looked at your website and would like to submit a weight loss story.  I am 26 years old and in what I'd like to say the prime of my life. I never thought I would hit this prime until I lost my weight. I was overweight until the age of 21 and it was a game of pick-up basketball that changed my life forever. As I got crossed over, the guy I was guarding said " See you later fatso". Being called all the names in the book growing up I want bothered until that moment. I only thought it happened in grade school but I was an adult and it hurt a lot more. I went home and weighted my self and tipped the scale at 305lbs. At first I thought it was broken and then my friend weighed himself and he told me it was correct. I needed to change. I started walking and using the weights in the garage. I changed my eating habits and sat down with Ronald McDonald and told him we could no longer go on. I cut out fast food completely. At restaurants I didn't get fries but a garden salad with the dressing on the side. I had learned about portion control whereas before I didn't know what a leftover was because there never was any. At the end of a year and a half I lost over a hundred pounds and was feeling great. Then the worst thing happened, someone told me I was too skinny. I was 180 pounds and confused. First I was being called fatso and then anorexic rapper. I still wore baggy clothes insecure about myself and my weight. I started writing and I think it was a way for me to get away and think about things on paper. I realized no matter what anyone said about me, I was living my life and I had to be in charge. I am now 206.5 pounds and happy as could be. I go to the gym three times a week with a mixture of cardiovascular exercise as well as strength training. I never believed in diet pills because I thought how did they lose weight back in the day. Naturally. I have never used a supplement or protein regulate everything in my meal plans. The body is composed of over six hundred muscles and the two I used the most upon losing my weight was my brain and my heart. Hats off to anyone out there that is trying to lose weight and my congratulations to anyone who has achieved it. It is the hardest thing you'll ever do, besides solving the Rubex cube but in the end you will be truly grateful and able to hold your head up high. take care and good luck. Shea Reid. Nanaimo B.C. Canada.
