    My name is Alex. This was me at the end of my freshman year of college (Spring '07). The freshman fifteen is more than a myth. I had actually gained 25-lbs.

    I had a very poor diet, consisting of mainly Miller Lite and Domino’s pizza. Throughout the summer, my poor eating habits did not improve.

    This is me mid July, 240-lbs heavy. I was fat, greasy, out of shape, and miserable. That’s when I decided I need to make a change.

    This is me NOW, seven months later, and 65-lbs lighter.

    I stopped drinking and created a new circle of friends that motivate me to develop healthier habits instead of feeding me shots of Jager all night. I started jogging, then incorporated weight training.

    Right now, I’m at the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I am beginning to feel more comfortable about my body. Before, I wouldn’t even have looked at myself in the mirror. But now, I am posting these pictures here, and only feel slightly embarrassed though more inspired.

    I’m a changed person, and people recognize that. But there is still work to be made. I would like to improve my body. I now am working with a PT at my Gold’s gym here, and have set a couple goals: to lose 15-lbs body fat and gain 10-lbs muscle by April 21.

    Having the opportunity to attend the Real Jock Boot Camp program would be an honor, and would really help me in achieving my goals. It would also provide me an opportunity to be more open about who I am. I’m still in the closet, but I’m looking for the right opportunity to come out. This could be the opportunity.

    Having said this, I simply ask for your vote. Even more so, I’m glad that I could share this with you all. Thanks.

    -Ash x
