This Dad Worked Out So Much In The Last 6 Months He Looks Like A Different Person

Jeremiah Peterson is an antiques dealer living in Montana with his family, which includes three energetic kids. Bored Pandareports that in August, Peterson went on a  camping and hiking trip with those kids—it is Montana after all. But it wasn’t a fun, relaxing, pleasure trip. 

Peterson said that instead of remembering hanging out with his family and enjoying the natural landscape, he was miserable and out of breath. His kids were running circles around him. He decided he needed a change.

He committed to a daily exercise regimen and a keto diet, which means high in fats and proteins and extremely low in carbs. He tracked his progress on Instagram and the results are astounding.

The Daily Mailinterviewed Peterson on his progress, and it seems like even he was shocked by how quickly his appearance transformed.

“I went from having a real dadbod to having a college kid’s physique,” said Peterson. People were coming up to him all the time to tell him he was getting younger looking by the day. It wasn’t just hid body that was changing, it was happening all over.

“Since going from fat to lean it’s made everything better, my hair and skin look healthier, you can see my jawline instead of chubby cheeks and I have abs.”

Well, yes, also the abs. Here he is at 31 days into his program, already looking super different:

Peterson works out three hours a day, which is definitely a lot. But that includes hiking as well as weightlifting. He says that he once went home and drank beer to destress from work. Now, hiking in the mountains is a much healthier alternative, and helps him clear his mind much more efficiently.

Peterson also shared his meals with followers, so folks would know what he was putting into his body to fuel workouts:

And the results speak for themselves:

In a caption of his before and after photos, Peterson writes that he’d been making excuses for himself and lost touch with how he was looking and feeling before starting this challenge to get fit.

Peterson got help planning his meals and workouts from a group called My Transformation Starts Today, a group that also awards cash prizes and runs contests for participants. And he won $ 50,000!

Personally, I was wondering how he found the time, but if you get a year’s salary to work out, that takes some of the time pressure off, doesn’t it?

Maybe he could also get into modeling?

Hard work that paid off. Literally.

This Poor Pup's Former Family Showed Up To Her Shelter To Adopt A Different Dog

Usually, pet adoption stories are the kind of news that brighten your day and remind you that there’s still some good left in this world. Unfortunately, the most recent news in the realm of rescue dogs is about as heartbreaking as it gets. 

Meet Zuzu, a 2-year-old German Shepherd currently residing in the Downey Animal Care Center in California.

Shelter volunteers describe the pup as “beautiful and loving” and “amazing” — which is evident from her sweet profile photos on ShelterMe, a site dedicated to matching prospective pet owners with shelter pets. 

Unfortunately, Zuzu’s life hasn’t been easy, thus far. According to her former owners, she “cried” constantly after her father passed away. Eventually, the distressed doggo jumped the fence into a neighbor’s yard and the neighbors called animal control.

Shelter volunteers had previously assumed Zuzu was a stray — until her former owners showed up at the shelter and Zuzu couldn’t contain her excitement. 

“Doing dog intros we got interrupted by a distracted and overly excited Zuzu,” shelter volunteer Desi Lara wrote on Facebook. “With her fast wagging tail seeing her owners Zuzu lite up like a Christmas Tree. She looked like the happiest dog. Yeah, she’s going home.”

In a heartbreaking turn of events, though, Zuzu did not go home with her former family. In fact, they were at the shelter TO ADOPT ANOTHER DOG INSTEAD.

“Their reason was because she was crying and sad since her father passed away. She wasn’t a happy dog anymore,” Desi wrote. “Their solution for her unhappiness was just leaving her here. And [to] go get another dog.”

Obviously, people are outraged by poor Zuzu’s situation and calling for her former owners to be banned from taking another dog.

Most importantly, though, people are sharing the video to make sure Zuzu gets adopted by a deserving family.

“Let’s get her into the perfect home please,” Desi requested. 

While Zuzu’s story is heartbreaking, we should be glad that she’s being taken in by a shelter that will find her a good forever home. 

“[I was] honestly sad but glad,” Desit told Buzzfeed of Zuzu’s situation. “I knew the rescues who come to [the shelter] would find her a good home where she would be a family member.”

We can’t wait to see Zuzu go home to a family that loves and appreciates her! (h/t buzzfeed)
