My name is Eric Thacker. I am the founder of Believe 2 Achieve. I started Believe 2 Achieve because I want to motivate and inspire others. On April 14, 2014 I stepped onto the scale and weighed 448 lbs. That moment hit me like a bolt of lightning. At that time i was living life in a lot of pain. I couldn't tie my shoe or get off the couch without help.
On top of the weight issues i was having, 2 years prior i started having seizures. I was told by my Dr that i could never drive or work again. That same year I was told by another Dr that i was blind in one eye and going blind in the other. So as you can see the chips where down for me during this time.
Now on April 14, 2014 I made a decision after i saw 448 on the scale. I made the decision that i was going to live a better lifestyle. Due to all of the falls i had taken, i had some bad shoulder injuries. So weightlifting was out of the picture. Running wasn't happening either. I have always been a huge wrestling fan. I heard that Dallas Page aka DDP had created DDP Yoga. I watched some of the testimonies and decided i was going to do that!
I was a slow beginner in the world of DDP Yoga, but each day i told my self i would get better. I also chose a better nutrition plan that i could live with. No diets! Each day i got a little better. Weight was coming off. I lost 30 lbs my first month! After one year of being in this program i lost 185 lbs. After 16 months of being in the program, I lost 203 lbs! Not only did i accomplished these weight loss goals, but i am also closing in on becoming a certified DDP Yoga Instructor.
None of this would have been possible if I didn't believe in myself! That's what Believe 2 Achieve is all about. I want to help others who are struggling like i was realize that anything is possible if you believe it and put in the work!
