A brave man decided to regain his health and embark on a life-changing fitness journey. Today we bring you the inspiring story of Neum Muliaumasealii.
He says he made the decision to lose weight after finally getting fed up with his lifestyle. Neum wanted something better for himself so that he could have more energy to dedicate it to his family.
“I got to a point where I didn’t know who he was. When I looked in the mirror, I didn’t recognize myself, ”he said. “I couldn’t move properly, I couldn’t walk without panting. I couldn’t even breathe properly, and I knew that if I kept it up, I wouldn’t be around much longer for my wife and kids. “
After making the decision to pursue a healthier lifestyle, this brave man lost weight quite quickly. So far, he has lost 150 pounds on his trip and the weight keeps dropping.
A brave man begins a journey to better health
“In 2019, towards the end, I weighed 644 pounds, and in February of this year, I was also diagnosed with diabetes. The doctor said that if I didn’t make any changes, there would be many more complications. “
So, with that grim possibility, Neum wanted to do whatever he could to improve his perspective. He did not want his family to suffer due to his health problems, so he did everything possible. Although it took a great effort to change her habits at first, she gradually got used to her new lifestyle. He also struggled with many doubts and low self-esteem as he began his journey.
“At first, it was difficult because of all that negative self-talk, telling myself, ‘You can’t do this, bro. You have tried it before; What makes you think that you are going to be successful this time?
The healing power of positivity
However, even though the voices in his head tried to discourage him, he kept going. Neum also said that the people he surrounded himself with helped him stay on track and keep going.
“I had a lot of positive people around me, a lot of positive vibes that were always there, and this time I was determined to do it.”
With his support system encouraging him, he felt that nothing could stand in his way. This brave man had such a strong desire to change his life that he put all his effort into going to the gym. After about 10 days, he began to feel and see the difference in his health.
“Some of my clothes fit me a little better. It was easier for me to get off the couch. On the 30th, in fact, I started to see a bit of my neck, something that I don’t usually see. I started to notice that I could actually walk more than I did before, and that’s how I knew there were changes happening. “
Don’t give up, even when the hill is steep
Neum knew none of this would be easy, but that didn’t stop him from trying. He owed it to himself and his family lose weight, and wanted to give everything he had.
“I knew I was going to have headaches, I knew I was going to have withdrawal, I knew that everyone around me was not on the same journey, so it was going to be difficult to move on. But, because I knew that by getting into that, I could move on, “he said.
You still deal with some of these issues even now on your journey, but it has become much easier to handle. After losing so much weight so far, you don’t want to throw in the towel anytime soon. From his highest weight of 644 pounds, he lost nearly 120 pounds in just a year and a half! This brave man has noticed tremendous changes in his mental and physical health due to weight loss.
“I would say that I am a more positive person. I’m more energetic, I’m more out there, I’m actually doing a lot of things that I would never really do. “
