A determined father decided to shed some flesh so he can actually he keep up with his wife and three children on a hike and that singular decision has changed his life for the better.
We culled the report from DailyMail and here’s the rest of the interesting story;
A dad has decided to change his diet and exercise habits after realizing he no longer could keep up with his three kids — and he has since lost 92lbs in just 150 days.
Jeremiah Peterson, 40, from Montana started his health journey in 2017 after going on a hike with his wife and nine-year-old, seven-year-old, and six-year-old children while weighing 290lbs.
‘I looked myself in the mirror and thought about my family, my responsibilities and how I would be 40 in less than a year,’ Jeremiah explained on his website after feeling significantly out of breath on the hike.
He continued: ‘I knew I HAD to make some serious changes in my life.’
In a recent Instagram post, Jeremiah elaborated on his motivation, explaining that his love for his family is what inspires him to stay fit and healthy every day.
‘I want to get into shape because I don’t have enough energy to be productive at work,’ he wrote.
‘I want to be productive at work because it’s important to provide for my family. I want to provide for my family because being a great parent is rewarding. I want to be an amazing parent because I believe it’s part of leading a good life.
‘My family has and always will be my why. Finding your reason why is essential if you want to achieve success in life. If you don’t have a strong reason behind your actions you are less likely to get the results.
‘Your why will pull you up when you feel like you don’t have the strength anymore. Your why will keep you fighting when everyone else thinks you are down for the count.’
He concluded: ‘I will do this. No matter what! My family is counting on me!’
Committed to changing his lifestyle, Jeremiah decided to workout twice every day and started the ketogenic — or ‘keto’ — diet to see if it would help him drop the weight.
