Losing weight doesn’t have to be a losing battle

[dropcap]L[/dropcap]osing weight has never been easy, whether you are male, female, and regardless of your ethnic background, it simply is one of those things people always struggle with. But losing weight doesn’t have to be a maze without an exit; you can find the right place to help guide you through it.

29-year-old makeup artist, Javier Escobedo, from Logan Square is one of these people that needed the right guidance to help him achieve the results he wanted.

“I was in a dark place. I had lost all self control and I didn’t know what to do. I remember telling my family that I was ok with being fat and it was who I am, but in reality, I was very unhappy and it was just a facade to keep eating and mask the real issues,” said Escobedo.
It wasn’t until January 11 of this year, that Escobedo joined Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping and started seeing enormous results within the first 10 weeks.

“I would say by the fourth to fifth week of constantly doing the workouts and eating right I had noticed a change. It wasn’t a big change physically because of course that takes time but it was in my strength and most of my entire attitude. I was beginning my life again. Now, after being in the program for about six months I can say I am happy,” said Escobedo.

His weight loss journey has always been a struggle and he has tried everything from diets to starving to diet pills but he only felt sicker from it and that his “heart is going to pound out” of his chest.

“What Farrell’s help you do is start a routine. You get used to it, the workout time, the meal times, etc. So when you fall off you get right back on. It’s a lifestyle change. You won’t ever want to go back to your old ways.”

Before he started the program, his weight was 185.8 lbs and his body fat was 36 percent. After the ten weeks his weight went down to 169.2 and his body fat to 27 percent. Now Escobedo weighs 158 lbs. He has 24 percent body fat and 38.2 percent muscle.

The advice that he gives to everyone struggling with weight loss is to be persistent, not to give up and eat right. He urges everyone to join Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping because he is a living proof of what the program can do.

“If you want something you are going to do it. It’s the same thing in life. If you want those expensive shoes, you work hard to get money to make the shoes. You can do the same thing with your weight and health! Farrell’s is there to keep you accountable and give you all the tools right in front of you to take advantage of. All you have to do is work hard and do it,” said Escobar. “I can assure you, you’re not alone! It’s a family and we look out for each other.  Stop making excuses!”
