(CHECK OUT MY LINK(Facebook) for updated photos, as I need to update my profile here)I used to weigh 265 Pounds around the age of 12, I then decided I want to lose weight, I knew when I woke up with a feeling that was similar to someone holding a fire to my heart(literally) that something was wrong. BUT before I awoke with that burning in my heart I had a dream. *I rose off the floor in my dream and most everything was covered in shadows just few lights cast here and there. I began to run and noticed people chasing me and one man was running in the opposite direction in front of me. I felt it in my heart this was my soul-mate, he looked at me and told me to keep running(but it was like a silent movie there was no sound). I passed up the shadows and everything changed no more people were after me, and I saw a building so I went inside it seemed to go up for miles about half way he met me again and told me to keep running(Silent yet again)so I reached the top and it was as though I never went anywhere the ground was level for miles around, and there we were face to face holding one another(the floor had small slits in it all over in the shape of a box spread 12 feet apart.) now surrounded by the people, I knew they wanted to separate us maybe even kill us. Four metal sheets rose from the ground and one above leaving he and I in darkness, and he pulled me close and kissed my lips and whispered (Love I'm so sorry Good-Bye).* That is when I woke from my dream and I felt it in my heart my soul-mate had died. For the next 3 days I had a severe fever I was cold and my heart was burning and people smelt awkward like sewage, I felt detached from life. and I could not eat. (That is when I changed my life. I stopped eating meat and no longer drank soda, I was a vegetarian and I knew that junk food was bad so I cut it out of my life( I began to work out and Lost some weight and began to care for the Earth(I am now a very active environmentalist)I am starting my own organization). SO I worked out until I was down to about 210 pounds at the age of 14. I could not lose anymore weight I though something was wrong. THEN I STOPPED EATING ALL TOGETHER! It stared off slow and went on from there at the age of 16 I stopped eating all together for 2 months, I started at 180 pounds and at the end of the two months I weighed 90 pounds at 6 feet. I worked out on a daily basis even though I did not eat, Because I did not want to develop flab. I was healthy and I was supplementing though what I know now tells me I got nothing from the vitamins. At the age of 17 I tried to become a model and go pro I have always wanted to be a professional High end fashion model with mod looks and sheik styles and so forth. But I was turned away I was way to thin. So I began to gain weight slowly at 18 I weighed 120 and had abs and muscle, but I gained more weight until I was about 155.(UPDATE I am 185 now 5 body fat and muscle) It is a good weight and I work out everyday and teach yoga(that is another story) I eat what my body needs to eat and supplement the 70% of what the body cannot produce(IT TAKES A LOT TO FEED THE BODY)I do not drink soda and I do not eat processed sugars, I am a now a pescetarian and I am very very Healthy. I use organic products that are good for the skin and have not been tested on animals I am also an animal lover(I could not hurt a fly and a pacifist who believes in absolute peace, PAW(Peace across the world) that is my organization. Yoga(I also began to do yoga at the age of 13 and mentally I was prepared for anything due to yoga I do not believe I would have been here had it not been for yoga and my best friend(My cat) Puppet, he stopped me from killing myself, He showed me that was wrong I saw it in his eyes) yoga lead me to a place of peace and happiness(NOT ONCE HAVE I EVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH BEING GAY) I believe you attract what happens in your life and yoga showed it to me. I love to teach mainly the mental aspect of yoga and how you can cure yourself of anything the mind is a wonderful creation(I do not take medicines that are altered like Asprin, Tylenol, or anti-biotics and so forth. Life is so live. I love to hike, swim, camp, mountain climb, bike, deep sea dive, fish, run, workout, EAT!, body build, paraglide, just to name a few(Rugged Maniac, Tough Mudder, Spartan Race).
