Alongside the image (above), the 35-year-old penned an inspirational message to his fans who may be facing similar struggles.
The father-of-two wrote:
"I thought I would share this with everyone… to truly understand how absolutely sick I was.. look at this photo and look at my eyes, I was a skeleton. This took a major toll on my physical and mental health. I know many of my fans have had similar struggles and can relate. The last 3 years were the hardest of my life, I look back and still wonder how I survived… I never quit although I wanted to thousands of times all day every day. This is from hurting my back after battling 2 cancers.. I had a 60 pound weight swing from my illnesses…I'm proud to say I didn't quit and I'm in the best shape of my life!! For everyone struggling right now from any situation.. remember… keep your head up and don't quit! There is light at the end of the tunnel, stay strong! T"
Wow, what a powerful story!
We're so happy to hear Tarek is in a better place (even amid his divorce), and is on the mend!
