双语君(微信ID:Chinadaily_Mobile)今天一翻日历,猛然发现,九月都过去一半了......

这里不禁问一句:

胖友们,你们的减肥大计进行得怎么样了?!

YouTube上一位叫做Jared的美国大叔,40岁之前是个450多斤的大胖子,40岁之后的他痛下决心,花了15个月减掉了270多斤,相当励志。

Jared一直就知道自己很胖,但常年的生活习惯让他害怕做出改变:

I've been fat all my entire life. Every day I've woken up heavier than I was the day before. It was a fact in life and I accepted it. I didn't want to be fat. But I didn't fight to against it because I knew it would require to change a lifestyle. Actually I knew that wasn't just about diet and exercise. It's about altering the way I lived.

我一直就是个胖子,每天醒来都比昨天重一点儿。我已经接受这个事实了。我也不想成为胖子,但我并没有抵制肥胖,因为我不想改变我的生活方式。事实上我很清楚,这不仅和运动、饮食有关,更多的是要改变生活习惯。

明明知道不能再放任自己,可天生有一颗吃货的心......

For the longest time I had no interest in changing. I knew that when I sat down to eat a box of donuts, they would made me fatter, that my back would hurt even more, and that it would be even harder to stand up and walk around.

一直以来,我都不愿意尝试改变。我知道我坐下来吃一盒甜甜圈会让我变得更肥,背也会更疼,甚至会让我难以起身行走。

终于有一天,他再也无法忍受自己的状态了:

I finally got tired of being fat and unhealthy. It’s hard to say exactly what my breaking point was. It could have been when I passed the five hundred pound mark, but that was a year ago. Maybe it was buying pants and the largest size carried by the local fat guy clothing store.

我真的厌倦当一个不健康的胖子了。我也不知道转折点在哪儿,可能是去年我的体重突破了452斤,也可能是我去当地胖先生男装店定制特大号裤子的时候。

Jared说自己这一年就要40岁了,40岁已经不小了,应该逼自己一把了:

My birthday this year is another possibility; turning 40 is cause for reflection, isn't it? It does bother me that my performance at work has deteriorated. I’m too tired and worn out to sit in front of a computer for eight hours. I imagine that maybe it’s all of those reasons and more. Maybe it's doesn’t matter. What’s important now is that I’m ready to turn it around.

我今年的生日也是另外一个契机。都四十岁了,该反思一下了,不是吗?而且肥胖已经导致我的工作表现下滑,在电脑前坐8个小时真的很累。我想可能还有别的原因让我做出转变,或者这些都不重要。但重要的是我现在下决心要改变了。

然后,Jared就这样锻炼了15个月......

15个月后的Jared是这样的,简直让人不敢相信这是同一个人!

要知道,刚开始的Jared,连腿都抬不起来......

完成这么大的转变,其中艰辛不是一两句就能说清楚的。面对着镜头的Jared,哽咽地说:

I still made a major accomplishment. I've forgotten how I opening.

我仍然完成了这项艰巨的任务,我都快忘了当时是怎么开始的。

Jared 的故事激励了许多胖友和其他的普通人:
