I have always been a bigger guy, even growing up I was called “Husky”, I guess that was the thing to call bigger kids back then. I was a Volunteer Firefighter for a long time but had to give it up because I couldn’t pass the physical to maintain my qualification. I also didn’t do much around the house, just coming home from work and sitting on the couch to watch TV. I would mow the lawn but that was about it. I never really knew my true weight because any scale I would use only went up to 365 including my doctor’s office so I would “guesstimate” that I was around 385. I was even going to give up my Commercial Driver’s License knowing that if I took the physical I would have to go for a sleep test because my neck was 22 inches, and I would probably fail that physical too. On January 17th 2017 I had a Doctor’s visit. When I went in the nurse said we need to get your weight, I reminded her that we were guessing because their scale only went to 365, well that’s when she said they got a new scale. I got on the scale and when it said 432.2 I was so embarrassed I wanted to crawl under the table. While I was waiting for the Doctor I called Lose for Life and told the owner, Kathy Murphy, that I wanted to come in that night and sign up for the program!!...That was the day my life so amazingly changed.
"I am able to do the things I love again! I have added years to my life. My self-confidence has improved a hundred times over. I am no longer embarrassed about how I look."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
My weight loss journey was one that I still don’t believe. This program doesn’t seem like a diet at all. I was never hungry, I like the Ideal Protein foods, and it works, BOY DOES IT WORK. The weight and inches just started to come off and off and off. My family and friends couldn’t believe how fast my body was changing.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I am back fighting fires as I pass the physicals with flying colors, I am no longer on any blood pressure medications, and I kept my Commercial Driver’s License! Oh yeah and now my lawn is perfect along with all of the landscaping that I neglected for so long because I just physically couldn’t do it. My family loves the new me, as I am so much more physically energetic, my wife sometimes complains that I have too much energy and she can’t keep up with me when we are doing projects!
