Where there is a will.....there is a way!
Pasquale Brocco started to suffer from obesity when he was 28 years of age. When he reached 300 kg (660 lb), his cholesterol level and high blood pressure threatened him with heart failure every day.
Three years ago, his doctor told him in no uncertain terms that if he continued to live the same way he would die in a short time! He realized that he could not allow himself to go on in this way especially with a young son, who was just a year old to raise. It was then that "Fat Pat" decided to change!
His story did not travel around the world due to the results, which are and remain exemplary, but due to the way, Pasquale has managed to lose all those pounds ...
At the beginning, Brocco weighted too much to use any of the exercise machines in the gym! He would, therefore, have to lose weight by walking all the way down to the supermarket to do the shopping.
The nearest supermarket was located about a kilometer and a half away from his house. So each and every day Pat walked at least nine kilometers calculating every time he went out to buy food.
Bracco knew that losing weight would not be easy, but what was at stake were his life and the commitment of a father with a very young son to raise.
After returning home from an appointment with his doctor he took a picture of himself in a mirror! He hated his body and all those extra pounds that had made him unrecognizable over time.
He walked to the supermarket for two years! After seeing his weight drop, gradually he began to replace fats and processed foods with healthy choices.
Soon the daily walks were combined with excursions and running up slopes. Then finally, he was able to use the gym exercise equipment and intensify his training.
In less than two years he managed to get rid of 90 kg (198 lb). He also underwent surgery to remove excess skin.
Now Pat is a new man, especially due to weighing 90 kg less! He is proud of the results he has achieved but most of all he hopes to be a good model and example for his son.
What will the little boy learn from his father's story? That anything is possible ... if you truly want it!
