Transformation: Steven Smith Sheds an Amazing 143 Pounds!
What Was Your Life Like Before Your Transformation?
Life before my transformation was tough. I was bullied for my weight and struggled socially to adapt. I looked in the mirror one night before going to bed and decided I was making a change and going to go full force to do so.
The turning point of my transformation was when I began to feel abs under the fat. Plus, along with that I was able to actually see muscle while working out when I had a pump.
What Were Your Major Struggles or Challenges?
The struggles were having such a low motivation from all of my peers at the time, telling me I would never amount to anything. I also struggled seeing others around me who were already in shape.
Detail Your Workout and Cardio Plan During Your Transformation
My workout plan was strict. I worked out seven days a week with cardio also being seven days a week. I tried mostly all the split types but the one I grew interested in the most was one muscle group per day.
Detail Your Diet/Eating Plan During Your Transformation
Diet was strict. I was eating under 2000 calories per day which allowed fast weight loss. I still was not eating healthy or tracking macros. About a year into my diet I started tracking and this allowed me to dial in my body more bringing me to my current physique.
