Stunning Time-lapse Video Shows How a Man Lost 42 Pounds in Just Three Months
Hunter Hobbs, of Norma, Oklahoma, has made the most of 2018.
This week, Hunter Hobbs, 24, of Norma, Oklahoma, posted a time-lapse video that showed his incredible body transformation over the course of the last three months. Hobbs, who works at an oil and gas company, was feeling out of shape in January, thanks in large part to the fact that his job has him sitting at a desk all day, which everyone knows results in weight gain. So he decided to challenge himself and make a change.
"I honestly just decided to see what I could accomplish if I actually took my diet and working out 100% serious for 3 months—no excuses," Hobbs told Best Life. "I strictly ate all the typical health foods you always hear about, such as chicken, sweet potato, eggs, oatmeal, spinach salad, etc. The only difference is I was super consistent with that and intense workout, which was 5-6 times a week in the gym, doing 20-30 mins of light cardio after the workouts. Would also do a little cardio and abs on the weekends as well."
As difficult as it was to stick to such a strict regimen and avoid take-out, Hobbs was passionate about seeing what he could accomplish if he ignored what his friends did or thought and maintained an intense, no-holds-barre diet and exercise lifestyle.
He was also inspired by the prospect of celebrating his accomplishments with a time-lapse video at the end of his transformation. "I knew If I documented and actually really committed I could make a really cool video as well," he said, which makes sense, given that research has found that posting about your wellness goals on social media can actually help you reach you lose weight.
By the end of the three months, Hobbs had lost 42 pounds, and gained what appears to be a fair bit of muscle—so his hard work really paid off. "It was the the hardest thing I've ever committed to but was worth it!" he said.
