Starting Weight:305 lbs
Current Weight:195 lbs
In 1988 at 40 years old, I was diagnosed with Pancreatitis. I spent 5 months in the hospital and that was the start of my weight gain. I continued to gain weight and then was diagnosed with diabetes and hypertension. For the next 20 years I lived a stressful life and gained over 150 lbs. In 1998 I began to take insulin along with Metformin for my Diabetes. In 2004 when I went to my doctor for a follow-up, he told me my tumor markers were off the charts which meant I could possibly have Pancreatic Cancer and if so, life expectancy was 3-6 months! I then had a procedure that removed part of my pancreas and found out I didn't have cancer but my pancreas was not working at all. I started taking insulin, working up to 200 units. In 2006 my wife got sick and I became her caretaker until her death in 2013. In that time my weight peaked at 350 lbs! My Dr. told me if I didn't lose weight I would die. 3 months later I made my first appointment at The Heart Shop and since lost 115 lbs and off my insulin!
"I set myself a goal, I made it, I learned a lot and I'm better for it! I've met some new, wonderful people at The Heart Shop and love that they've helped me with my journey. I love the whole process!"

Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
The thing I enjoy the most is the freedom to do things I couldn't do before. Also that I feel better, have more energy and my clothes fit better.
