From Running 2 Minutes To 2 Marathons: Steven’s Weight Loss Journey [VIDEO]
“Actually, you’re morbidly obese. Continue this pattern, you’ll end up dead”
Steven Bryant couldn’t believe the words coming from his physician’s mouth. It’s a memory he’ll never forget. In 2013, he’d gone to the doctor for what he thought would be a normal, routine check-up.
But he learned that the 297 pounds he was carrying on his 5-foot, 8-inch frame made him a pre-diabetic with high blood pressure – not to mention his history of severe asthma.
He needed to make a change, fast, before his weight claimed his life.
“I was 25 and I felt 50,” Bryant said. “I really needed to do something.”
Blackdoctor.org met with Bryant, now 28, to discuss his weight-loss journey, where he lost 100 pounds in 10 months.
