For most of my life, alcohol was always a problem; I just didn’t think it was.

When I turned 30, it got worse and worse. Blackouts, seizures, and I could hardly walk. On March 21, 2012, I had a major stroke from alcohol detox.

I moved from California to Oklahoma to be with my family. The first year, I still hated everything, but things started getting better. Since the stroke, I have walked with my cane “Fred,” and each year I have been getting better.

I got married on September 10, 2016, to a woman I hadn’t seen since high school. One day last summer, I decided I was going to help motivate my family to lose weight. I bought some dumbbells and started finding workouts on the Internet. At about the same time, I found out our little town had a gym. And then I found Jim Stoppani.

My wife and I started going to the gym and I started studying everything I could on the JYM Army and Jim's Facebook page

The first program I did was Full-Body Shortcut to Size, and then I took off until the first of the year. I've since done 28 days to Redemption, Down and Up Mass, Full-Body Shortcut to Size again, and I'm now on the classic Shortcut to Size.

After starting Dr. Jim’s programs, my balance and ability to walk changed drastically. I now can walk without “Fred” or having to grab hold of anything for balance for quite a ways, and I just keep getting better.

The response I got after the first picture I posted was overwhelming. I never thought that I would inspire and motivate people. I just wanted to help my family and grow my arms.

Dr. Jim Stoppani has changed my life in so many ways for the positive. I have learned if someone says you can’t, prove them wrong. 

I started with all the JYM supplements and finally figured out what my macros should be through Dieting 101 and how easy eating right really is.

I would like to say thanks to the Steve Ngo and Debbie Stevens for their help answering all the questions I had and the rest of the JYM Army for all their love and support!
