For all those who are too lazy to hit the gym to lose weight, get inspired by Pasquale “Pat” Brocco of Arizona. He dropped more than 300 pounds by merely walking a mile to Walmart to get his food every day.
An obese man who use to weigh 605 pounds at the age of 28, decided to take this step after his doctor warned him about what high cholesterol and high blood pressure could do to him.
He decided to make this possible with literally one step at a time. Given his weight, it was impossible for him to join the gym. He said, “At 600 pounds, I couldn’t even go to the gym, I didn’t fit on the machines.” Talking about his journey from going to Fat to fit, he said, “You walk to Walmart three times a day and you end up walking six miles.” Now 31, Pat says he is content with the struggle he has gone through, “It’s amazing because I never walked six miles in my life and I was doing it every day.”
But it was not just the exercise that did wonders; he had to keep his diet in check too. He decided to make radical changes – such as throwing out junk food and dairy in favour of vegetables, brown rice, steel cut oatmeal and lean meats. It was tough to give up on junk food, but he was determined on his decision and opted for the healthier option and cooked it up when he returned home.
He even started a “GoFundME” campaign that can help him to collect the fund for his cosmetic surgery to remove his loose skin. And the internet helped. He raised $2400 and got rid of his extra 30 pounds of skin.
