The Internet Is Going Gaga Over This Man's Transformation Into A Disney Prince
April 9, 2018
A man who's struggled with his weight for most of his life has become an internet sensation after he lost 70 pounds while caring for his sick mother.
Jeff Kendall, 26, started caring for his mother, Liliana, after she had suffered a brain aneurysm on July 4, 2015.
Liliana remained in the ICU at a local hospital for weeks and slipped into a coma twice. During that emotional time, Kendall says he was in poor health and weighed 250 lbs. He knew the time had come for him to stop making excuses, he told People.
"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 pushups every day. Soon I was waking up and going for walks while listening to uplifting music," he told Love What Matters.
"My happiness grew and my confidence too. 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."
Then he posted a progress picture on Reddit and it exploded!
"I could barely sleep that night, it was amazing. The comments were all so uplifting and inspiring. Many called me a real life Disney Prince, the highest compliment of them all. It's made me choose to chase a dream of becoming a model or maybe an actor one day."
But for now, Kendall says he spends most of his time caring for his mother, who is now paralyzed on her left side.
"She's the toughest person I know and gives me a constant appreciation for life. She's always telling me to take a day off and I love her so much for it. At the end of the day, I just want to make her proud."
But I think the real queston on everyone's mind is this: What shampoo does he use?!
