My name is Matt Payne.  I am a Kansas City Police Officer on the SWAT team.  You would think that a Police Officer especially a SWAT team Officer would be in great shape right?  Well not so much.  I had let myself become overweight and out of shape.  My uniforms had become tight and uncomfortable. I had just got some 2XL shirts because the XL shirts were too tight.  I was wearing size 38” waist pants.  My friends and co-workers would joke with me and call me “fat”.  This really affected my self-esteem. I would suck my gut in while looking in the mirror to make myself feel better about my appearance. I WAS IN DENIAL.  In reality I was the heaviest I had ever been (217 lbs).  I lacked motivation and energy.  I was embarrassed of who I had become.  I would lose my breath doing minimal activity (such as putting my boots on).

I would work out in the gym, but never really got any results.  I was never really sure what exercises to do or for how long.  I would run for a little bit and lift a few weights and call it good.  Well that just wasn’t working anymore.  My diet was horrible (unless cheese burgers, fries and ice cream are considered health foods).  I have never had a good diet; I pretty much ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted it.  I never ate breakfast.  I would wake up and head off to work only to find myself starving at lunch time. I would usually gorge myself for lunch and then find myself starving by the time I got home for dinner.  I would then end up gorging myself again and then go to bed on a full stomach. I was the guy who would tell myself I would just work out a little bit harder in the gym.  Well that only worked in my 20’s.  Now I was 39 years old and it seemed that the thought of something sweet would make me gain a pound.

My cholesterol was at an all time high. My blood pressure was borderline high.  I knew my health was suffering from my poor diet.  I needed a change.  But what change?  My life is so busy.  How would I have time for a change?  I am married with 4 kids.  I have a full time job and 2 part time jobs.  I also own and operate a Lawn Care/Snow Removal Company.  How would I have the time to do a workout program or diet?  I needed help!

I then learned about Hitch Fit and was thrilled to see people I actually knew who had completed the program with great results.  I read their stories online and could relate to them.  I was motivated to make a change.  I desperately needed a change (for my family, my career, my self esteem, but mostly for myself).  I decided to take the plunge and buy the program.  I am not sure how I did it, but I found the time.  My wife supported me and encouraged me along the way.  The diet was tough at first, but got easier once I figured out how to get prepared for the week.  The workouts and cardio were very demanding. I would find myself working out at midnight after work, just to get the workout in.  I would choose to workout, instead of getting a good night’s sleep.  My hard work and dedication was paying off, I watched the scale go down week by week.  I could not believe how fast the pounds were dropping.  My clothes were getting baggy.  I looked forward to sending Micah my report for the week with my new weight and measurements.  My friends and co-workers would make positive comments on my changes.  It kept me motivated and on track.  I was holding myself accountable.  I would not let myself fail.

Finally, I am proud to say I now weigh 180lbs.  (That’s 37 pounds down!) I had to get new uniforms because they were falling off of me.  I now have a 32” waist.  I have not wore 32” pants since High School.  I traded in those 2XL shirts for L shirts.  I feel great.  I may not be a fitness model, but I am in the best shape of my life!  My cholesterol numbers are at an all time low.  My blood pressure is perfect.  I found happiness within myself that I have needed for quite sometime.  My friends and coworkers no longer call me “fat”.  It felt great to go on a beach vacation and not be embarrassed to take my shirt off.  I know I still have some more work to do, but I am headed in the right direction.  I am going to make healthy choices and continue with my workouts going forward.  I have learned how to eat and workout properly.  I will never go back to the overweight unhealthy person I was a few months ago.  Thanks Micah for your help along the way.
