Starting Weight:254 lbs
Current Weight:182 lbs
I was fat all my life. When I reached 254 pounds (my largest weight ever) I just got sick and tired of being fat. I had kids that were still young and I wanted to be around to watch them grow up and to be able to see them have kids. I also loved to exercise but the extra weight put a heavy load on my knees and hips which limited my ability to run and work out. I also liked to play golf and found it hard to swing the club around my large belly. So I was just tired of having my life limited by being fat.
"I no longer feel or identify as a fat person."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was surprised at how well I felt during the journey. Other than the first week I usually felt great. Lots of energy and happier emotionally. I was also surprised at how quickly the weight came off. Much faster than other weight loss programs that I had tried previously.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I enjoy the feeling of my body. I enjoy wearing clothes that look good. I enjoy working out and playing golf. I have done triathlons and one half-marathon. I have the energy to travel and to not get tired walking around. I have even started ballroom and been dancing!! I also enjoy knowing that I have done everything I can to ensure that I will be around to see my grandkids.
