An Amazing “Real-Life” Weight Loss Story

Mainstream media is loaded with “amazing” stories of massive weight loss.

If it’s not celebrities with personal chefs and super-sexy personal trainers, it’s Biggest Loser contestants going through weeks of torture at the hands of Jillian Michaels.

But what about the rest of us who don’t have…

  • a ton of money
  • a ton of weight-loss knowledge
  • a ton of support
  • a ton of willpower

We end up getting fatter & sicker & sadder.

Or….. if we’re equal parts lucky & brave, we run into someone who will teach us, support us and lend us their willpower until we’re ready to break free of our bad habits and stand on our own two feet.

Just like Eric

  • Eric who lost 155 pounds in 18 months
  • With no drugs or gastric bypass surgery or personal chef

It’s a great, great, great, great story that everyone trying to drop some weight should listen to.

Special thanks to Curd at Hostyle Conditioning for telling me about Eric. 

Curd and I have been chatting via Twitter (@HostyleTraining) for the past few months. During one of those discussions, he mentioned Eric…and I told him that he had to get Eric on video to tell his own story. And after watching the video today, I was blown away and dropped everything else I was doing to get this post ready to go online asap.

I can’t say enough about the amazing work Eric has done with his body and with the fantastic support Curd gave to Eric when he needed it most. It’s a real “made for tv” kind of story.

Well done guys.

BTW, Curd wrote a nasty sandbag interval workout for Hive Health Media back in April – check it out

    Gosh, can’t really keep my mouth shut. Look how much weight Eric shed. I wonder how much effort did he expend just to reach this far. Oh man, I salute you.
