New book from Bricklayer Publishing seeks to inspire weight loss journeys.

A new book, authored by “former fat guy” Gary Drumm, seeks to share his personal struggles and inspire others to go on their own journey to lose weight by not trying to lose weight. Killing a Fat Guy: How to Kill the Fat Person Living in Your Mind and Create the Fit, Healthy Person You've Always Wanted to Be was released earlier this month and is quickly climbing to the top of overall paid book rankings on Amazon. The book has ranked as high as #2 in the Kindle store in Weight Maintenance and Weight Loss categories, and #4 in Self-Help.

Drumm long struggled with what he describes as the battle between the fat guy and the fit guy within his own mind. At his heaviest, he weighed 345 pounds. He was unmotivated, unhappy, and lethargic for years before he decided to make serious changes to his lifestyle. He learned how to change his mindset, began a regular training program, and learned how to get the proper nutrition his body needed in order to accommodate this new lifestyle he’d chosen. The lifestyle changes gave him a sense of personal power and delivered the physical results he had been seeking. With this book, he hopes to inspire others to find their own inner strength and take their own journey to a happier, healthy life.
