Former WCW star Lash LeRoux was on the "Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling" podcast this week, where he said he got up to 318 pounds a few years ago.
“I think I hit a turning point at around 40 (years old). I retired early, way earlier than I should have," he said. "I retired around 2010 from wrestling."
"When I turned 40 around 2016, I was 318 pounds. I had a 44 inch waist. I was taking a lot of medication to cover up some back injuries. It was uncomfortable and unhealthy. If you look at a picture of me back then at 318 pounds, I look like Lash ate Lash."
"I thought to myself that this is not sustainable. I decided to start losing some weight. All I did was start watching what I was eating a little bit more. I started becoming a little more strict. I started stretching and getting my flexibility back."
"It took me about a year in a half, and in a year and a half, I lost about 100 pounds. I went from about 316 down to about 216. Then I started going back to the gym again. I fell in love with working out again. I’m leaner now at 228 pounds, which is roughly what I stay around, than I was when I wrestled. I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m happier than I’ve ever been. “
