They called me HUGE until I lost 80lbs

  • The Story of My Nickname in High School. My nickname, "Huge," stems from my first name, Hugh. In this picture from ninth grade, you can see my double chin and full head of hair.

  • However, that all changed when I took a trip to the Boundary Waters when I was 16 years old. During this camping and hiking trip,

  • I had to carry a 60-pound backpack and a canoe on my shoulders, earning me the nickname "Huge." But, after just three days of physical activity, I lost 10 pounds. This experience sparked a desire in me to change my life and lose weight. In just six months, I was able to shed 80 pounds.

  • Since then, I've been on a mission to achieve optimal health and help others do the same. I don't want anyone to go through what I went through as a young person, struggling with my weight and being teased with a nickname like "Huge."
