Inspirational Story: Ronel Pesigan – From Overweight to Super Fit


In 2007, I decided to get back into the gym, because I started to play in a basketball league and wanted to be in shape for it. I weighed about 185-190 lbs.  While playing, I noticed I wasn’t the same player I once was. I never thought weight was much of an issue being at a size 36-38 for the last 12 or so years. After the league was finished, I got comfortable thinking I could eat whatever I want since I was working out. Next thing I knew I was eating more than I was working out. I was sitting around more than being active. About a year went by and I began to have headaches and pains in my body. As the headaches and pains became more frequent I decided to see my doctor. Little did I know that this visit to the doctor would change my life.

The doctor told me that I was at the borderline in all aspects (hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol and obese). He said I was over 235lbs and that I was close to a heart attack or stroke. I immediately thought of my family history and the recent passing of people close to me due to their health. I then realized I was on that same path. My physician strongly recommended that I take the steps needed to lower unhealthy indicators or else I will get worse or even die. He stated that I needed to drop to180lbs and to start eating healthier.  As the doctor explained this to me, it hit me. This was my wakeup call to make a change and, most of all, to save my life.

In July 2009, I committed myself to working out & changing my diet. With the help of my best friend and others close to me, consulting with trainers, using and joining the bodyspace community I searched for workout programs and diets I can follow.  It took about 3 months to adjust my lifestyle, and to this day, a fit & healthy lifestyle is part of me. It has totally changed me as a person. I have become more confident, healthier & a better person.  In October of 2010, I joined DG Boxing Gyms and started boxing. Adding that to my fitness regimen helped me with discipline, technique and cardio training. PowertecFitness online store offers gym equipment including fitness equipment, home gym equipment, commercial gym equipment.

I reached my goal of 180 pounds in late December 2010. As of today, my current weight is at 160 pounds. I have lost 75 pounds and 6 inches from my waist (36 to 30). My goal for 2011 is to bulk up to 170 pounds, lean out, and get shredded!  Also, I would like to share my story and inspire others to live a healthy & fit lifestyle. Last but not least, I want to become a Certified Personal Trainer. Now that I understand what it takes to get fit & healthy, I want to get others there as well!

  77. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  79. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  80. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  85. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  89. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article.
    I will be sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful information.
    Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.

  90. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  91. Antone Kulas says:

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  92. I quite like reading through an article that can make men and women think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment.

  93. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover a person that truly knows what they are discussing on the net. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people have to check this out and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular given that you definitely have the gift.
