KISSIMMEE, Fla. – If you need some inspiration for 2020, 28-year-old Christian Montijo may give you the motivation you need to accomplish any new year resolutions.

Montijo just enlisted to the U.S. Army. For years, it’s been his dream to serve but one thing was holding him back: his weight.

“At the beginning, my goal was to join the army– that was it. I wanted to lose weight and join the Army and now we are here,” Montijo said.

A year ago, Montijo weighed more than 300 pounds. At that point, the husband and father of two said enough was enough and figured it wasn’t too late to get recruited.
