At just 5 feet 6 inches tall, he weighed 420 pounds before radically changing his life.
Like so many others, he tried and failed countless times to lose weight. Any success he achieved was short-lived as the weight came pouring back on and then some.
Out of desperation, he decided to undergo gastric bypass surgery on Sept. 1, 2009. However, prior to the procedure he was convinced that the surgery would become like all the other failed attempts to lose weight. He thought at least he would go to his grave saying he tried everything.
Chuck was just 27 years old at the time and didn’t think he would live to see 30.
But then the unexpected happened… he woke up from the surgery and never looked back.
Although a critical component, the surgery proved only to be the first step in his journey. In fact, he only attributes 10 percent of his weight loss success to the procedure.
In just over a year, Chuck shed 64% of his entire body weight by conquering food addiction and devoting himself to a healthier lifestyle! And he did so without ever setting foot inside a gym.
