Far kunne ikke lege med sine børn - nu er han slet ikke til at kende

Da Jeremiah ikke længere kunne følge med sit syv-årige barn, tog han en drastisk beslutning

I juli sidste år vejede Jeremiah Peterson, en far til tre fra Montana, 127 kilo.

Men i en pludselig åbenbaring besluttede han, at det var på tide at gøre noget drastisk. Han kunne ikke længere følge med, når hans børn løb og legede, og det nægtede han at blive ved med at leve med.

’Jeg blev stakåndet og var nødt til at holde pauser længe før mine 9-, 7- og 6-årige børn. Det afspillede sig igen og igen i mit hoved’ beskriver Jeremiah Peterson i et opslag på sin Instagram.

Så familiefaren lagde sin livsstil om, og i dag er han som et helt nyt menneske. Vægten viser 37 kilo mindre end den gjorde i juli, og resten af det overskydende fedt på kroppen har Jeremiah Peterson skiftet ud med muskler.

Mens den amerikanske far til tre har gennemgået sin ekstreme forvandling, har han lagt billeder op af processen på sin Instagram-profil, hvor han nu har over 10.000 følgere.

PHOTO BEFORE AUGUST 4th AND AFTER PHOTO JANUARY 8th Go beyond showing up and doing the work. Part of why I keep making these side by sides is because I want my daily wins to be more powerful. For myself. I think so often people believe that there is a finish line. That once you pass that invisible thresh hold that your world will stay that way, that your bank account will stay at a great number, that you won’t have to think about staying in shape anymore, that you won’t have to think about making your wife fall in love with you everyday like the first day, that you won’t have to keep striving. But that’s bull crap. I want to remember how easy it was to slide down to that and that I have to DO THE WORK to be in the best shape of my life daily. Yes I have goals for later in the year but I have to focus on today. By remembering everyday where I came from and tell myself daily I’m not going back. It would have been really easy to slide into Christmas and New Years just like I always have. But I want more. So no days off. Stay active. Stay hungry. This isn’t just a physical transformation for me. I have some things that I have to do. It’s what I wake up thinking about. What I fall asleep dreaming about. It’s what I want to fight for and NEVER fall back into a timid place of complacency and acceptance. Because God knows I am thankful for all I have. But He also put me here to be great. To provide in more ways than I have for my family. To push the envelope in our businesses. To proof every enemy, well meaning friend and family member wrong. That there can be more. That I have more to give and do. And it all starts with what I do today. And each day. To tally it up to a HUGE win. . #wintheday #dothework #nofinishline #wedothework #nodaysoff #winthemoment #gobeyond #win #imnotdone

BEFORE PHOTO- AUGUST 4th AFTER PHOTO- DECEMBER 23rd Total Weight Loss 82 Lbs (Please leave me comment on my transformation.)I've been asked many times how it that 150 day (July 25th-December 23rd) transformation even possible? . The truth is the honest to God answer is I did the work! . Two 45 minute trail hikes every morning one before work and one after work with a hour long weight training session every single day! . No Days off!!! I did the work!!! There was not one day that when I laid my head on my pillow that night all tired and worn out that I did not feel like I had won that day. . I can’t stand the picture on the left. @andyfrisella talks a lot in his podcasts about negativity and how everyone has a dark side. -Those pictures are extremely powerful resources of fuel and drive for me. -There is no better way to gauge our process than against ourselves. Being our own greatest competition. I want to crush that guy on the left. I want to crush that guy on the right. Look. Sometimes you have to stare that hate and anger in the face and source your power from it to CREATE some awesomely positive things in this life. -Don’t be afraid of it. -Don’t hide from it. Stare your fat ass in the face and choose who is going to win. We have this ONE LIFE TO LIVE. Each day that we are not living to our fullest potential is a waste of the precious time that we are allotted. I want to wake up every morning with an excitement and a drive to create something unique and incredible. I want to go to sleep exhausted every single night knowing I did everything I could that day to make my life better, my family’s life better and maybe in some small way the world around me a little bit better. Frederick Buechner said “One life on this earth is all that we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not LiVE iT aS FuLLY and BRaVELY and BeauTiFuLLY as we can.” @1stphorm #iam1stphorm #100to0 #1stphorm #workforit #dothework #1stphorm #neversettle #wintheday

In June of this year my wife and kids were riding their bikes to school and one of my sons got a flat tire, my wife called and asked me to come help. . I didn't think anything of it and jumped in the car without my shirt on and went to help. . When I showed up to help my wife and kids were mortified that I hadn't put a shirt on and all the parents and kids where going to see my big fat belly! . I hadn't thought much about my weight gain much until that moment. . I realized in that moment that my family was embarrassed by how fat I was. . That feeling ate at me. . I knew I had to make a change. . I found the My Transphormation Challenge at @1stphorm . I wasn't sure about a challenge though. . I had all the excuses. . I run a business. I have kids. I don't have time to workout. It takes too much focus away from running the business. . What I know now? I know that my health, my strength, my confidence, my dedication, my hard work...ALL reflect deeply into my very excuses and or amply exactly what I love and value the most. . I didn't realize how lazy I had been. . How INACTIVE I was with my family until I became ACTIVE. . How much of a slacker I had been at my own job...my own business. . This challenge has rocked my world. . I just want to thank 1st Phorm for putting this challenge out there for people like me. I want to thank you @andyfrisella for challenging me far beyond just my physical limits. I am beyond grateful for the #1stphormfamily and the enormous amounts of encouragement and support that you all have constantly given to me. # While I am happy with the changes I have made I still have work to do. More to drive for. More to accomplish. That's why I'm so grateful for the #legionofboom because I fully plan on keeping my standards higher than I ever imagined and I know I will succeed. # I plan on sharing my Transphormation with you over the next few days. Please leave a comment letting me know how you think I did and if you have any questions for me don't hesitate to ask. Thank you, #1stphormphamily (Before photos July 25th and After photos today December 23rd for 150 Day

People have been asking me what my nutrition has been in order to achieve my results in the last 150 days. I am an open book. And I want to share so here it is... I am a carnivore through and through. Born and raised in Montana hunting and having a freezer full of venison which is naturally all grass fed for my family's healthy eating habits. My nutrition for the last 150 days closely followed the keto diet guidelines but I like to keep my protein a little higher than what a true keto diet calls for. Proteins I mainly kept to elk, deer, extra lean ground turkey, chicken & turkey breasts, salmon and white fish. I kept my fats high with avocado, coconut oil, grass fed butter, olive oil and almond butter. I tried to keep my carb intake relatively low. Riced sweet potatoes and cauliflower were in almost every meal. I just varied the amount and timed my intake according to my workouts. For greens I ate primarily asparagus, green beans, broccoli and brussel sprouts. If I felt hungry, I ate. I didn't feel restricted at all. I didn't track my macros it was just a trial and error process that I watched closely by weighing in every day and taking tons of selfies to see what was working and what wasn't. But that also doesn't mean I would switch it up right away if I didn't see immediate results. I trusted the process of doing the work and seeing how my body responded. I know this diet isn't for everyone but it's what worked for me. I will continue to eat like this for the foreseeable future. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. These before and after photos are 150 days apart July 25th to December 23rd (5 Months).

When I was younger I was always the guy that could maintain a fairly decent body with lifting during the week and then havering a huge cheat meal and drinks on the weekends. As I poured myself more and more into running and building my business I started to slack on my workouts. I found myself needing a beer at night to relax and unwind. Before long it was 2 beers or more.. Now I'm not saying I had a drinking problem. But I will say that those empty calories stick to my 39 year old body in ways that my 30 year old body never had to deal with. Lol...then don't get me started on the treats that linger around a house when you have three kids. The combination of alcohol and sugar are the worst for gaining weight and basically succumbing to the stereotypical Dad bod. I know now that because I have some huge goals for myself and my family that sugar and alcohol truly have to be a very occasional treat. Because after all this transformation has turned into something far bigger than just weight loss or mere aesthetics. My mindset for success has never been so strong. Watching myself and how much my physical body manifests into drive for my business, my family and the goals I have...I know I won't let a short term moment of indulgence interfere with my long term plans for success. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.Before pic was take July 25th and after pic was take on December 23rd for a 150 Day Transformation (5 Months) I would love for you to leave a comment on how you thought I did on my #transphormation With @1stphorm Thank you very much #iam1stphorm #100to0 #1stphorm #mytransphormationstartstoday #mytransphormation #transphormation #transformforlife #wedothework #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #bodytransformation #bodytransformations #diet #mealplan #mealplanning #relentless #goals #lost82pounds #150days
