Jared– no, not the Subway Jared- decided it was time to make some changes when he turned 40. He’d always been heavyset, and by the time he was 40 his weight had hit 500 pounds. He started doing the Diamond Dallas Page Yoga program and shed over 300 pounds in 18 months. In this video, he reads his first blog post when he decided it was time to change his life.
When Jared first introduced himself to Dallas, he’d been doing DDP for nine months and had lost 180 pounds at that point. Even Dallas was skeptical since these results are NOT typical, but Jared had joined TeamDDPYOGA.com and had posted his “before” photos, so there was proof of what he was saying.
Jared continued to lose the weight and became so proficient in doing yoga that he was invited to participate in the filming of a new video. He didn’t seem as impressed as everyone else was with his weight loss accomplishment, which is when Dallas asked him to read his first blog post. You can hear how emotional it was for Jared when he read it aloud. If you need inspiration, I can’t think of a better video than this!
