Weight loss Transformation Tuesday with Kristopher Smith
Here is a Transformation Tuesday BLAST from the PAST! Does anyone remember Kris? I get goosebumps to this day reading about Kris - he still truly inspires me! Now this is a transformation and a half. For my male readers, I do hope this gives you some inspiration. Let’s all show some love and help congratulate the wonderful Kris for his amazing transformation!!!!
Kris is all the way from Cali, USA and is an aspiring actor. He has already lost over 70lbs AKA 30kgs and is continuing his healthy lifestyle by eating clean!
He took the time to answer some of my questions, so I could get to know him a bit better. I have been following him on Instagram for a few months now and he is such an inspirational young man. For more info please go and visit Kris on his Instagram HERE.
- How old are you and what was was your outlook on health/fitness when you were growing up?
I'm 24. I was somewhat active growing up. I played baseball from 4th grade to 8th grade which is like age 9 to 12. My family is pretty big on sports I just outgrew it when I got to high school. We grew up eating pretty healthy. We only ate out like once a week. Just by the time I was in high school. I didn't make health or fitness a reality. I always wanted to lose weight growing up. Just wasn't motivated.
- What types of foods did you used to eat as a kid and young adult? What's changed since then?
All fast food. Taco Bell, McDonalds, Burger King and KFC. Lots of sugar. I love sweets. I used to sit at home when I wasn't at school or work and bake all the time. I eat clean now and watch my portion. I don't drink soda and stay away from fried foods. I try and make clean alternatives for my bad food days.
- Do you play any sports or what sports do you like watching?
Baseball. It's the only smart I understand. Favorite team is SF GIANTS.
- What are your interests, passion and what makes you smile?
I love drawing. Writing. Painting. Be creative and artsy. That's what I love about IG (Instagram) so much is creating cool pics. My passion is to be an actor. I'm going back to acting school in April again to start where I finished. I had taken a few classes there years ago when I was 19 but I got sidetracked with work but now I'm back into my focus of making my dreams come true. My family makes me smile. I appreciate and love them so much.
- What made you change your lifestyle into a healthier version of you?
The death of my brother. I didn't want to end up like him and not know what it meant to live a fulfilling life. I didn't want to live my life with any regrets and I knew being overweight I was going to be restricted to doing certain things.
- What are some of your dreams/goals you hope to achieve over the next 12 months? Get closer to being an actor. By the end of the year I want abs. Lol.
- What would you like to share with my readers about your transformation?
I just want people to know that you don't have to wait for anything traumatic to happen for you to lose weight. Start today. Today is never too late. As much I have been called inspiring. I get even more inspired and motivated with people telling me that they workout or eat healthy because of me.
Thank you so much Kris for your amazing journey and I look forward to following your progress throughout the year, can't wait to feature your abs!!!
I would love to feature you for our Transformation Tuesday posts. Even if you would like to send in progress pictures, a pair of jeans that may be a tad tight but after a few weeks you have been able to button them up. PROGRESS, not perfection. That is what we are all here for.
Have a great week until we meet again.
