Some of you have seen my transformation, some of you have not. This was me at 17 years old. As you can see, I didn't know what the gym was. It was around this time that a friend told me "André, you are too skinny, you look sick, you should hit the gym!" He had no Idea what those words did to me. They made me question myself and my life, and more importantly my future. So I made a decision, give up running and get in the gym. For the first year I literally ATE EVERYTHING I could, going from 1-2 meals a day at 132 lbs to 5-6 meals is not easy. I wanted to quit, I wanted to give up, I wanted to stop eating. People told me that I would never make it in the fitness industry, that I didn't have what it takes to succeed. People hated on me for my new lifestyle, they dropped rude comments on social media, went behind my back and talked about my choice, they just didn't get it. I never listened, and I made a promise to myself, I told myself on the first day in the gym "André, from this moment forward you will never give up on yourself, and you will never give up on your dreams, and you will do everything you can to inspire others." 7 years later and I'm here, talking to you, encouraging you to believe in yourself and understand that your journey is written by YOU. YOU are in control of everything you want in this life. All you have to do is wake up with a positive attitude, block out the negativity, throw on your headphones, and just crush your goals, every single damn day. This is YOUR LIFE, not your friends, not your parents, not anyone's. It is YOURS. Do what makes YOU happy. I did, and I'll never look back. I'm @andremerzdorf
, and I will never stop showing you that what may seem impossible, is indeed possible. 👊
If you don't want to look like me in the right picture it's totally fine! DO what makes YOU happy! But maybe this story inspires you for something else in your life! ❤️🙏🏼
