I hate using that word but I’m using it for now… I’ve recently started checking out almost everything Shoemoney has typed about on making money Online for about the last 7 months now and he’s been a HUGE inspiration for me.
But somehow I ran into a post about his Biliopancreatic Diversion Duodenal Switch Surgery… (phewww, hope I got that right!) and was blown away by how much weight he lost through this surgery.
I myself was overweight by about 80 LBS. at one point in my life but lost most of that in 2002…while I gained some back over the years – I’ve recently been working out alot and losing it once again. So I know how it feels to be overweight… although I was always “just chubby” most of my life as I was an athlete since I was about 6 years old and couldn’t stay away from sports…or sugar – which is why I was never skinny. But for about a year and a half I was REALLY big because I just couldn’t stop doing nothing after a year of Walking 5+ miles a day and barely even eating (I was homeless for a while) a $1 hamburger a day. So going from being really active and eating very few calories a day to suddenly eating all day and not doing crap – it makes you get fat quickly.
So I was just blown away by the pictures of Shoemoney as he looked prior to the surgery. I read the article he wrote about it on his blog and it shows what kind of a person he is and the type of people he has to support him. So while some people may think he’s a lucky person for making so much money — they sometimes overlook the problems people may suffer from behind the wallet…
I think it’s amazing though that this guy went from this:
Yeah, I threw in a picture of him with some hot chicks… like that could ever fail?
Seriously though… that’s one big accomplishment after another. So while some may or may not see how hard he’s worked to become who he is online – they may or may not now know how hard he’s worked offline as well.
