Middle-Aged Japanese Man Transforms Into Handsome Bodybuilder After Wife Left Him.

Love can make people do crazy things, but the lack of love can do even more. When someone feels the loss of losing someone they love, they can fall into a pit of despair, or they can rise up and become better than they were before. That's exactly what this Japanese man did when his wife walked out on him. With a few lifestyle changes and a positive mindset, this man made incredible progress in a short amount of time.

When Japanese Twitter user Shirapyon entered into his middle adulthood years, he was happy with the ways things were going.

After all, he was happily married, so why wouldn’t he be happy? Unfortunately, things weren’t going as well as Shirapyon thought they were.

After he got divorced from his wife, he decided to return to the ways of his past. In an interview with Bored Panda, Shirapyon said: “I divorced 5 years ago, and for a while, I was drinking only liquor. But then I remembered my youth suddenly. I thought that I’d like to participate in a bodybuilding contest.”

“I lost weight in my own style, I lost 12 kilograms through diet and hard work at the gym. At my first contest, I did not qualify. But I loved the challenge and have now been competing in bodybuilding contests for 4 years,” explained Shirapyon.
