Fact: I lost over 150 pounds and posted my pictures on the bb.com forum in 2004.
Fact: I was asked by Bb.com Corporation to be featured in ads because of the popularity of that forum.
Fact: I do not make any money off of the "Dorman Combo" or royalty on the ads featured.
Fact: The photos used in the ads were airbrushed.
Am I saying that I am valid in allowing those pictures to be used?
Am I fraud?
I train hard 6 days a week. I work extremely hard on keeping my weight consistent from years of being excessively overweight. At present, I am still a man who transformed himself both inside and out.
In regards to my criticisms in the past year, I want all of you to know that I have heard it. Some of it I agree with, and some of it, I don't.
Regardless of the varying degrees of people's personal opinion of me, ultimately, I have worked this past year on communicating my good character by redefining my public image.
I created a fitness lifestyle weblog community for people who wanted to change their bodies and challenge their minds the way I had to when I was very fat and insecure.
I had photos of women taken down from my profile in September 2005 because I wanted to become a better role model.
I have limited my articles, (all articles I stand by) and have focused my last articles on personal development.
And today I stand unashamed by the accusations - after all, my personal triumph is mines alone.
For those of you who come to this site, or my site, and choose to read my story because I lost 150 pounds, was able to increase my self esteem and attain a lifestyle only personal confidence and self perseverance from a significant transformation would allow me to do - then I hope my journey will inspire you to take that same route.
For those of you who are calling me a fraud - I guarantee you, I am not.
To Ryan and the bb.com team - I am still a proud and genuine representative of how eating right, training hard and supplementing correctly can transform a person.
Pretty Arrogant if you read all the posts with TONS
of virtual evidence that it was photoshopped..And it doesn't help that he's area of expertise either.
