Losing 200 Lbs in 1 Year - My wife’s Incredible and Motivational Journey
I want the world to know how proud I am of my wife and if her story can help motivate others than that would be truly amazing!
My wife Judy Rosen has had challenges with her weight for most of her life. She was 200 pounds in her teens and as the years went on Judy got married and had 3 kids. She worked long hours and continued down the path of unhealthy living. We ate fast food all the time and we did not exercise. Over the years she became so unhealthy that she was on prescription medicine for blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol and I was on medicine for blood pressure.
March 2013, Judy weighed in at 424 pounds and was restructured from her job. She decided that her family was too important and if she wanted to be around she had to make some changes. She put a plan together for the family to make a lifestyle change. As part of the plan she interviewed many personal trainers in the area and crossed paths with Dave Harris at Individual Performance. He helped provide her with the knowledge, tools and exercise that we as family would be successful in making a lifestyle change. For all that Dave Harris has done for my wife and family I am cannot thank him enough.
I am so very proud of my wife Judy. She implemented the changes that needed to be made. She learned how to cook (and to eat) healthy, started working out and as a result she lost 200 pounds in 1 year. Due to her hard work, determination and example she transformed herself and her family. As an extend family we have lost over 680 lbs in a year.
As a result both Judy and I no longer take prescription medicine. We are more active as a family. And we enjoy our new life.
I am so proud of Judy and what she has accomplished and I look forward to the journey ahead with my wife and children.
