Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments
Diabetic loses 101lbs for his family at age 45
With the help of my loving wife, her nutrition guidance, and emotional support, I lost a total of 101lbs at the end of 18 months. The first 12 months were hard as I got used to the process and learned. I had lost 30 lbs, which was positive, but certainly not enough. I was working hard in the gym but had not dialed in my nutrition.
Once my wife got more involved and helped me dial in my food, the weight loss really picked up the pace and I lost 71 lbs during the subsequent 6-7 months.
Today, my wife has made this type of endeavor her life and trains and coaches other people full time as a personal trainer and manager of our local athletic club.
She also lost a total of 30 lbs just following the same healthy eating plan herself.
I try to take any opportunity I can to inspire others and let them know it can be done, no matter the age.
I also want to say THANK YOU to my wife for saving my life by getting involved. :)
