Fat Joe talks weight loss and overcoming diabetes

According to Joey Crack, his first taste of success and wealth put him on an eating roller coaster ride.

“I was talking to my trainer yesterday and he asked me, ‘When was the last time you were slim?’ I swear to God I think when I was a month or two months old. That was it, I was Fat Joe ever since. — [I thought] ‘I’m rich now. I can go to Mr. Chow’s and eat all the steak and lobster I want.’ … I think I weighed about 450, 460 at my heaviest. I always took pride in being fat. That’s why my name is Fat Joe. And I always represented for the big people. But I realized at a certain point all my big people were dying — my best, best, best, best friends don’t even know this but I was diabetic for 16 years — since I was 14. And being that I lost weight [I have] no more diabetes.” (CNN)

Thought not obessed, I understand Fat Joe. I’ve had several family members whom passed away to do weight issues. R.I.P. I promised God that I would live a healthy lifestyle. It’s such and honor and privilege to have life and be able to enjoy it in a healthy way.
