Chad's Before Picture at
464 Pounds

Hi, my name is Chad Soileau & in March 2006 I weighed 464 pounds. 464 will always hold a special place in my heart because it was this number that made me realize that unless I made some drastic changes in my life I wasn't going to be around in 5 years. I have since lost over 260 pounds and live a healthy active lifestyle by running, cycling, swimming, weightlifting and boxing on a daily basis.
