"That was the most embarrassing s***." https://t.co/mCaT8KfSN1— Men's Health Mag (@MensHealthMag) October 16, 2019
Gates weighed a staggering 310 pounds,"Did you see it!? I ain’t gonna lie, sometimes I be walking by the mirror and be like: what the fuck? Double take. Because I was 310 pounds and now I’m like 215-220. Now if I eat too much, I feel fat and want to just go work out. . . . When I first saw myself losing a little weight, my dream was to never wear a shirt anywhere. I didn’t want to keep hiding, because it was going to make me stop working. So I wanted to take my shirt off. I want a woman to just see me and just fall on the ground and just die."
Gates says of his rigorous workout regime, “One word: commitment. But what really did it for me. I had my shirt off and I was holding my partner’s baby, and his baby tried to suck my breast. The baby kept going like this [*mimes head tilting, mouth open*]. You know how babies open their mouth and do that? And I was just like: I am too fucking fat. I’m a fat slob. I need to lose weight. That was the most embarrassing shit. I’m a big gorilla, but I got feelings too. That shit hurt my fucking feelings.”
Gates released "Walls Talking” and is also in partnership with suicide prevention and mental health awareness outfit Save.Org.
