Jeremy Kills It!

Jeremy has to have one of the better P90X transformations I’ve seen.  He went at it right away changing his diet to healthier choices, but it wasn’t until he really dialed in his nutrition and gave up alcohol that he saw the weight and fat really start to fall off.  And fall off it did, wow!  Check out Jeremy’s awesome results!

Here’s Jeremy’s story in his own words:

“My name is Jeremy and I’ve been overweight since I was a kid.  I didn’t let it slow me down, always staying active and busy but never supplied my body with the care or nutrition it needed and deserved.  I abused my body for 30 years and was ready for a change!

I’ve lived in south Louisiana all my life, and let me tell you, food in this area of the country is unbelievable!  Most food here is either fried or served over rice and loaded with so much oil and fat that it makes a Big Mac seem like a healthy choice.  I ate plate lunches, hot dogs, burgers, fries, fried chicken, and candy on a regular basis.  One of my favorite past times was sitting on my patio drinking beer and smoking cigarettes or cigars.  At one time I remember that I took pride in how much beer I could consume, and I smoked over a pack of cigarettes a day!

After graduating college my weight shot up quickly!  I joined a gym but always had an excuse of why I couldn’t go.  So I ordered P90X, it arrived on a Friday afternoon and I couldn’t wait to start it Saturday!!  I woke up Saturday morning and just threw in one of the disc (I don’t remember which one it was) but about half way through the video I got sick and gave up.  I remember laying there on the floor in my living room feeling defeated!!  The discs found a new home in my closet where they collected dust for quite some time.

One day, I had enough, I knew I wanted to be able to pull those discs out and give it another shot, but felt like I wasn’t in the proper shape to complete any of the videos, so I borrowed an exercise bike, and purchased some weights.  I also started making a little better choices with my nutrition (instead of a big mac or a whopper I would get a chicken sandwich), but I was still taking in entirely too much alcohol and too many calories.  I started making a little progress but still didn’t like what I saw in the mirror.

On 4/14/11 I decided today was the day!  Day 1, I made it through the entire workout and I kept telling myself  “If I can make it through week 1, I can make it through the whole 90 days!”   Well I made it through week 1 and the 90 days, then went on to round 2, and round 3.  Sometime before starting round 3, I decided to start on Shakeology (daily) and I needed to get my nutrition straight if I really wanted to see results.  I figured out exactly what I was going to eat everyday and stuck to it, until the weekend came around, and then I would drink, but it was ok, because, I switched from high calorie beer, to wine, scotch or vodka.  Round 3 finished and I still didn’t have the results like my coach (Wayne Wyatt) or anybody on the infomercial!  IT WAS TIME TO GET SERIOUS!

January 2012, I was starting a new program, P90X2, and joining this group of 600 strangers that all had the same goal as me, to get RIPPED!  So I joined Coach Waynes X2 CREW!  Little did I realize that these strangers would quickly turn into friends that I wasn’t going to let down!  In early January, I downloaded the myfitnesspal app for my phone, and started tracking everything that went into my mouth!  I quickly realized that alcohol was out of the question, so I gave it up, COMPLETELY.  I even entered the few supplements I was taking just to make sure that I wasn’t going over my calories and my protein / carb / fat ratios were correct.  My weight quickly started dropping and I could see and feel a physical difference in my body.  My performance during the workouts kept improving everyday.  My goal with X2 was to finish below 10% body fat and I cruised past that to just a tad below 8%.

This has proved to be more than a workout program for me.  It’s been a journey to not only becoming healthy, but becoming a better person, a person that’s no longer self conscience about they way they look, a person that’s no longer dependent on alcohol to have fun, and most importantly, a person that doesn’t make EXCUSES.”
