You have to get rid of it to reveal the true beast that is you. You cannot let those ugly pounds hide the true you.

According to Danny, he used to be bullied at school because of his looks. So he retreated back to his room, spending most of his time playing video games, and binge eating. Things went on like that for four years, until Danny decided to change his life. What started as an effort to lose a few pounds turned into a life changing project. Danny was going to never be the same again. He decided to go to the gym.
Initially, it was a “typical bro split of one body part a day, 5 days a week,” says Danny. Just imagine this guy with this weight doing exercise in the gym, in front of everyone. And remember this story next time you feel goosebumps on thinking about going to the gym.
