A Fairytale Ending: Man Lost 70 Pounds And Looks Like A Disney Prince
On 29th April 2018
Jeffrey Kendall, 26, from Connecticut, managed to lose 70lbs by transforming his diet and exercise regime, including taking up yoga. He shared his story on Reddit, where he said: "I’ve lost a lot of weight, a lot of sadness, and a little facial hair. I’ve gained a whole new appreciation for life. Remember to always love yourself."
Jeffrey photos looked like the human version of Disney’s Prince Adam.
He shared his weight-loss transformation photos online to help others and inspire those who are feeling stuck. He has shocked the internet with his incredible transformation and has gained a legion of fans. People were quick to complement his hard work and his beautiful luscious hair.
His inspiration to get fit came while he was taking care of his mother after she’d suffered a brain aneurysm on July 4, 2015.
He told Love What Matters: "She was in a coma and rehab hospitals for 7 months until they deemed she had plateaued and was to be released since insurance would no longer cover her."
"I was an overweight youth, I was bullied growing up. I’ve lived my life with body-image and confidence issues."
"I had seen her in the hospitals where she could barely speak, I had seen her in the ICU where she couldn’t. I had seen her on the floor unable to wake up. To see her stare without the longing of a mother was heart-wrenching. It put a world of self-pity and pain in perspective to me."
A new appreciation for life
"My good friend was also in an emotional time after a breakup and wanted help to get in shape. It was a perfect reason for me to start something new as I felt a new appreciation for life after that summer. We started out small, a light barbell workout and agreed to do push-ups every day. Soon I was waking up and going for walks while listening to uplifting music."
He has always had self-image problems.
Jeffrey explained how he had previously struggled with depression and his confidence levels prior to his weight loss. Kendall slowly began to incorporate exercise and self-love into his life.
After nearly two years of dedication to his healthy lifestyle, he lost 70 pounds!
He said: "I started jogging and doing sprints, pushing myself a little more and more. I sought new ways to work out, I found YouTube channels like 'Yoga with Adriene' to help fill those times when I wanted a workout at home. I began doing yoga and working out almost every day."
His main motivation was his mother
"She’s the toughest person I know and gives me a constant appreciation for life."
One user said he should be in shampoo ads.
another said: "You are already famous in Poland, they call you Prince Adam."
He also posted a photo of himself cosplaying Prince Adam.
Jeff says he’s been overwhelmed by the positive response and attention he’s received.
"I could barely sleep that night, it was amazing. The comments were all so uplifting and inspiring," said Jeffrey.
