Eastfield nutrition and exercise science sophomore David Cosnecos (19) lost 110 pounds in one year by exercising and dieting.

"During my young age it didn't matter for some reasons," Cosnecos said. "I felt bad about my shape, especially in high school. When I got older, I became self-conscious."

After graduating from high school in November 2006, Cosnecos started riding his mountain bike, cycling, running and practicing yoga.

The first time, he rode his cycle 20 miles to Eastfield from his home, and continued using it, going to a gym and other places.

He started running for three to four minutes and it gradually increased his running time.

"It is such a big difference being a different person," Cosnecos said. "I was less resistance to gravity. It is so much difference. I couldn't imagine it."
