They called the 107kilo man a fat cow. But 4 years later he shows them in his own way!


As far back as the 19 year old Irishman Michael Sullivan can remember, he was fat. Even as a child he weighed more than his play mates. He continually put on more weight and lost friends. As an adolescent is suddenly became clear to Michael: food was the only true friend that stayed with him.

School got harder and harder for the boy. One day when Michael already weighed an alarming 107 kilo, fellow school students called him names, which stuck deep in his mind. "You fat cow", yelled a former friend. At university things got a little easier for Michael, he made some new friends, but he quickly realised that for them, and the girls, he was just the "funny fat guy". That's when he made a decision.

Michael chose the wrong, and very dangerous path: he starved. He slimmed down till he was unhealthily underweight, and was just skin and bone. Michael had developed an eating disorder, an illness that many people only associate with young women. However it also affects young men, who then see themselves in the mirror as too fat even though in reality their bodies are completely malnourished.

Then Michael took another turn. He learned about healthy eating and regular exercise. From then on, the young man could not be stopped! He trained almost every day and prepared nutritional meals for his body. And it rewarded him quickly. The once overweight guy rapidly builds muscles, and because of his young age, his skin moves with him leaving no unsightly saggy skin. Michael discovered a completely new understanding and feel of his body, and with it a whole new life. For the first time in his life he feels healthy.

With his success he really manages to punish his tormentors. They can hardly believe it when they hear how their punching-bag of yesteryear now earns his money: Michael is a fitness model! With half-naked photos where he presents his well trained body, is how he earns his living. No one had ever thought that possible for him!

It is really impressive how much willpower can effect a person. If this transformation has also completely blown you away, then share Michael's story with everyone that you know.
