My name is Fred Lechuga, founder of this extreme weight loss success story website, Fat2FitFred. I am married and have 1 child.
I was obese and overweight my entire life (baby, toddler, child, teenager and adult). After years of yo-yo dieting, when my son was born in 2005 I finally decided that it was time to make a permanent change.
I was tired over being extremely overweight and I wanted to change my future.
I lost over 150 pounds through exercise, running and eating right and I have kept it off since about 2006. It is my belief that running assisted with my fast weight loss.
I lost the weight on my own. I never did any type of surgery or take any type of magic weight loss or diet pill. (Weight loss surgery and diet pills are a temporary fix. Being overweight is typically a deeper issue than just being fat.) I also didn't have the money to ever hire a personal trainer.
I decided, due to my unique work schedule that I would do it by myself without any type of training or running partner. Since I was able to make these changes, I truly believe other people can also do it with hard work and determination.
While I was losing the weight, I fell in love with running. Since then it has become a hobby that I look forward to and have a passion for. I have run multiple marathons, numerous 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathon and a 50K during a running group's fun run. I use the running to keep my weight off, but more importantly to keep the motivation and inner fire going. (In 2013, I also bought my first road bike and I am learning about cycling.) I am now an affiliate for Ride Fite Cycling videos also.

I also enjoy spending time with my family. I follow most major sports, MMA and reading books. I am an Android phone user and Google fan.
I have become an amateur photographer using Google Glass and LG G3 to take pictures on my long runs. Since I am a runner I typically like to take sunrise pictures #throughglass or on the phone and share them instantly or after I edit them on Snapseed.
I am a big believer of drinking healthy smoothies. I useVitamix and Blendtec the best blenders on the market. Checkout on the links on my website.
