  • Introduction to Video Content
  • A Nova Scotia man's weight loss journey has gained attention from none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. Derek Bona, a chef of 23 years, admits to having a love-hate relationship with food. While he enjoys creating dishes and making people happy, he also uses food as a way to cope with pain and mask negative emotions. However, in January, Bona decided to embark on a healthier path.
    After experiencing a fall and struggling to get back up on his own, Bona reached a low point in his life. He ultimately made the decision to prioritize his health and started focusing on healthy eating. This involved consuming high protein foods, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and limiting his carbohydrate intake. Remarkably, Bona noticed not only physical changes but also a positive shift in his mindset within the first two weeks.
    In addition to his dietary changes, Bona enlisted the help of a personal trainer named Rick. With Rick's guidance, Bona began incorporating exercise into his weight loss journey. The hard work paid off, as Bona saw significant progress. In just nine weeks, he managed to lose 55 pounds, bringing him from a starting weight of 590 to a current weight of 524 pounds.
    Bona's journey caught the attention of many, including local and Canadian celebrities. One of the most notable figures to acknowledge Bona's efforts was Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Terminator actor not only retweeted a photo of Bona's transformation but also left a personalized message of support. Schwarzenegger's encouragement meant a lot to Bona, who found inspiration in the fitness icon.
    Bona's story serves as motivation for anyone looking to make positive changes in their own lives. Through determination, healthy eating, and support from unexpected sources, Bona was able to take control of his health and achieve remarkable results. As he continues his weight loss journey, Bona is grateful for the outpouring of support and remains committed to his goal of becoming a healthier version of himself.
  • Subtitles section
  • Thank you, Kaylin.
  • A Nova Scotia man's weight loss journey attracted the attention of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • As CTV's Jim Common discovered, Derek Bona gets a thumbs up from the Terminator.
  • I'm a chef for 23 years.
  • It's a love-hate relationship with food.
  • I love creating dishes and making people happy, but in return I use food as almost an addiction.
  • A way to cover pain and cover any negative things I had going on in my life.
  • My weight loss journey started around the end of January.
  • I fell and I couldn't pick myself up.
  • People were pulling over to help me up, but I was panicking that I couldn't do it myself.
  • And I went through a bit of a rock-bottom spell.
  • It was either I was going to be here or I wasn't going to be here.
  • So I started healthy eating, concentrating on high protein, lots of healthy fruits and vegetables, limiting my carbohydrates.
  • And within the first two weeks, my whole mentally, everything started changing, not just physically.
  • As of a week on Tuesday, I started with a personal trainer, Rick, my trainer.
  • Now I'm almost 60 pounds lighter.
  • I was about 590, 600 when I started my journey.
  • And as of last Saturday, I am now currently 524 pounds.
  • So I just made an update post.
  • In nine weeks, I lost 55 pounds.
  • Here's an updated picture, kind of thing, before and after.
  • It went viral on Twitter and had people like Doris Troublavicus and other local celebrities and Canadian celebrities kind of just tweet me, encouraging me to keep going.
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger retweeted my photo, and he just didn't retweet the photo.
  • He gave like a personalized message to me, like telling me that he sees me and keep working hard.
  • And who's more popular in the fitness world than Arnold Schwarzenegger?
  • So it really gave me a great push to get up this morning and go for my workout with Rick.
  • And little ducks are bouncing to step, as they say, right?
  • Already, I've noticed that I am stronger than I ever thought I was.
  • I'm more proud of myself today than I've probably been in my whole life.
  • If you give up on your body, your body's going to give up on you.
  • You need to start thinking positively.
  • And when you start doing positive things for you, you'll see positive results.
