These pictures were taken in December of 2020 at our first in-person gathering after doing church exclusively online for 9 months. When I saw the pictures online, I knew that I needed to do something.

The two pictures on the left were what prompted me to start taking my health seriously… I have lived most of my life heavy, but had never really felt fat, but during the first year of the pandemic I gained an additional 20 pounds, topping out at 260 pounds.

My XL shirt and 38 shorts were stretched to the max. My doctor told me that I was pre-diabetic and I was on medication for cholesterol and high blood pressure. Everything hurt, and I was miserable.

I reached out to a couple from our weekly Bible study group that had lost significant weight during the pandemic and they introduced Wendy and I to the health program that I now coach.

It is impossible to express in a social media post how much that one decision has impacted our lives. In 7 weeks, I lost 37 pounds and went on to lose 65 pounds in six months, and I have kept the weight off and have continued to improve my overall health as I have learned to implement healthy habits into my daily routines.

I signed up for a diet, hoping to drop 25 pounds, but later realized that I received a personal development program. Since December 2020 my mindset about food and health have completely transformed, I have more energy now than I have had in 30 years, I sleep better, and enjoy life and the people I spend it with more than I thought was possible.
