Flexer of the Day: Derrell
Derrell, 24, from Ohio, was always overweight in childhood. He never played any types of sports, didn’t have many friends, and had a strong love for food. If something was bothering him, Derrell turned to food. The only thing Derrell had in common with fitness was his major obsession for Arnold Schwarzenegger. He always told his mom that some day, he wanted to look like him.
Derrell was heavy all the way up to my senior year of High School, weighing 225 pounds. He was the kid that couldn’t do a pull up in gym class, failed every physical fitness test, and always picked last.
His older brother has been thin, good looking, with a great build without touching a weight in his life. The girls loved him and Derrell was in total envy. He decided to change his life in 2006 when the ex “love of his life” called him a Fat A$# in front of all her friends. He went to the school bathroom, looked in the mirror and hated his reflection — he hated everything about the way he looked. He made a promise to himself, he was going to make a change.. So he did!
What a great story! Your transformation is extraordinary! Keep it up and keep inspiring!
