Hi everyone, I’m Leandro, I’m from Fortaleza and am thirty-one years old. All my life I was a thin person. My weight was never an issue. But after I started studying and working, I had no time to exercise. This led me to gain over 20kg. At this point, I traveled to visit my family and friends and all of them would make fun of me, calling me “fat”. I felt sad and sort of traumatized: I started feeling ashamed to take my shirt off, at the beach or anywhere else. Knowing that one year later I would visit them again, I promised myself that I would change. No one would ever call me “fat” again. Week 0: 85Kg My experience with Freeletics was hard at the beginning, which I think happens to pretty much everyone. When you are sedentary, you are not used to practicing high-intensity exercises that require a lot from your body. I felt stressed, felt powerless, felt insecure. I felt that it was not for me. Week 3: 76Kg I had a goal in my mind. I wanted to change. I wanted to show people that I would get this victory. Week 6: 70Kg Week 0: 85Kg Week 3: 76Kg Week 6: 70Kg After I started training, all my friends and family noticed how fast my body was changing and asked what I was doing. The process wasn’t easy at all, but I pushed and pushed. In the end I lost 15kg. After being bullied, I was uncomfortable, I was ashamed of my body. I was ashamed to go to the beach and take my shirt off. Now, this has totally changed.
