700lb Guy’s Life Is Transformed After He Trolled Bodybuilders.
While we all like to believe that what’s on the inside is what matters, the truth is that the world does judge you by your physical appearance. At the same time, staying fit is something that isn’t just about looking good. It is more about avoiding the unnecessary health risks as well. Unfortunately, or rather unwittingly, we all get complacent about our healthcare.
What usually follows is an endless and viscous circle of self-loathing and binge eating. But sometimes, certain things happen that snap us out of this slumber in the most dramatic fashion.
Jesse Shand trolled bodybuilders online for years to make himself feel better about his overweight 700 lbs frame.
The guy was at a miserable position in his life and found himself in an abyss with no visible way to come out of it. His father was murdered when he was a child and because of his ever-growing weight, he became a hermit inside her mother’s home.
Abusing people on the internet seemed as the most convenient option to Jesse to channelize his desolation.
Completely ashamed of his weight gain, he found it much easier to hide behind the computer screen and bully the bodybuilders to quell up his low self-esteem.
The bodybuilders were so frustrated that they decided to turn the tables and give him the taste of his own medicine.
They, then, asked him to show his picture since he portrayed himself too superior to them. But what they saw next was highly unexpected. Instead of an extremely fit Jesse, they encountered an obese Jesse.
To Jesse’s surprise, he didn’t face any mockery; rather, the bodybuilders vowed to help him in order to give him a second chance at life.
They realized his inner turmoil and began giving him tips on how to get in shape, beginning with just sitting in a chair and flailing around. Jesse said, “I've now lost 400lbs (28st) and I've probably got another 35lbs (2.5st) to 40 bs (2.8st) of loose skin so I'm only around 15lbs to my goal weight.”
“I was just doing anything I could do to further upset someone who was already devastated. I wanted to force my misery onto someone else – it meant I didn't have to think about my own terrible situation,” he told.
But with the bodybuilders, Jesse found himself the much needed help he had been afraid to ask for. He further added, “Some of the members started trying to talk me into believing I could lose weight. I said I was too fat to exercise but they said I could just sit in my chair and flop around to lose weight. So that's what I did – it was my first ever workout and by the time I was done I was tired and sweaty but it worked.”
