Man Loses 280 Pounds After Not Being Able To Fit In 6XL Shirt, Finds Love And A New Career
It’s easy to slip into a spiral of unhealthy habits. Unhealthy food choices and a sedentary lifestyle can lead to excessive weight gain that is difficult to reverse.
One 21-year-old from Ireland decided to turn his health around, and the result is absolutely astonishing. You won’t believe how great his life became once he changed his lifestyle!
Bad Habits Definitely Die Hard — Especially On The Scale
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not always easy. A diet filled with fatty foods combined with no exercise can really start to add up on the scale. One young man from Ireland was struggling with some serious weight gain, and his lifestyle was to blame.
One Irish Man Was Using Food To Cope
Dylan Condron — a 21-year-old man from Waterford, Ireland — was struggling to find work after he left high school. Condron turned to food out of frustration, and he began to gain weight rapidly.
Condron’s Health Was Rapidly Deteriorating
Condron reached a massive 460 pounds at the age of 19. “I had pains in my head and my chest all the time – it was scary,” Condron stated. The teen had no confidence and thus his lifestyle stayed the same until he received the ultimate wake-up call.
A Gift From His Neighbor Sparked A Change
Condron’s neighbor bought him a t-shirt as a souvenir while traveling. The shirt was the size 6XL, and it was tight when he tried it on. Condron then knew it was time to make a change and take back his life.
He Had To Completely Transform His Lifestyle
Condron cleaned up his diet with high-protein meals and cut out his massive carb-intake. His family helped him to hire a personal trainer, and he began lifting weights and taking walks daily.
Condron Lost A Massive Amount Of Weight
The 21-year-old has lost a total of 280 pounds over the past three years. Although his strides to be healthy have been successful, he admits it was never easy.
He Struggled With The Diet And Exercise At Times
“With my family’s support I kept up the exercise and the new food regime and things began to work and I started to see a change. It was very difficult but I knew it was something I had to do so I kept going,” Condron stated. Little did he know everything would fall into place!
He’s Found Love After Turning His Life Around
Losing weight has given Condron a newfound confidence. He joined the dating app Tinder and met his current girlfriend, Amy Kelleher. Condron has also found a job as a chef. Amy couldn’t be more proud of all that Condron has accomplished.
His Girlfriend Provides Loving Support
“I met him after he lost all the weight and when I was looking back at the pictures it was hard to believe. I couldn’t put into words how proud I was of him,” Kelleher stated. Condron isn’t finished with his weight loss journey.
Condron Looks Forward To Completing His Transformation
“It’s kind of something that keeps me on my path. If I have a bad day I look at it and ask myself this is why you did it,” Condron stated.
