Sean Yeager-Diamond's Success Story

I'll start this section with my own story. I grew up not understanding healthy outlets or healthy eating. I was encouraged to follow my passions, but they weren't exercise or fitness. My parents were afraid that calling attention to my progressive weight gain would harm me emotionally. So I as I grew up I "GREW" up.
I never played sports beyond AYSO kids soccer, I never participated in P.E. In fact, My teacher gave up on me and I became the "recorder," and held the clip board for other kids times.
Towards the end of Highschool and the start of college I decided that enough was enough. I like girls and was sick of being the friend, and I was involved in theater (I was good) and I wanted better parts.
I started walking at night. Every night. For hours. I didn't know what else to do. I became a vegetarian. If I can't eat it can't make me fat. Most importantly, I started to read and learn.
I had no idea what I was doing, but I knew I discovered something.
A lot has happened to me since then, I lost 135lbs, I became a fitness professional, I graduated with two degrees, I've worked with 100's of clients, and I've seen my story and my realness impact others. I like who I am.
