I am Jay, or "MODDED COROLLA". A 26-year-old electric mechanic from The Netherlands.

Just like 64% of construction workers in my country, I am overweight. I was actually part of the 15% that is obese. After losing 30+ pounds I can happily say that I am no longer obese. I have around 10 pounds left to lose until I reach a normal BMI.

I did not start a diet, I realized (after several attempts) that those don't work for me, I just return to my bad habits when the diet finishes.. so I decided to make a full lifestyle change; I eat healthier, Drink lots of water, I work out, and I have breakfast every single day. Writing a blog about my old lifestyle really helped me see what I was doing wrong, which in turn helped me see what I needed to change.

Here's a blog entry that I wrote a while ago, it gives a better look at the changes that I made:

Now that I've lost most of the weight, I've started to work on strength training while I work on losing the last 10 pounds of fat, it's great to be back to doing strength training, it's even more amazing to be able to do more than 10 push-ups. When I was (a lot) heavier I could barely do 5.

This active and healthy lifestyle feels great.
Here's to reaching my final goal and maintaining success!
