When I realized that I was the heaviest I had ever been, and there seemed to be no end in sight, I knew I had to do something to help me stick around for my wife, my kids, and our 9 grand children. For me, making the monetary commitment was the toughest step, as the program isn’t cheap at all. But in the early weeks of the program, as the pounds drop, the lingering thought of the cost helped keep me focused and on track, no cheats. Dropping the weight has been exhilarating, with higher energy levels, fitting back into pants that were 2 to 3 sizes smaller than at the start. I am getting use to seeing my rib cage again. Playing baseball with my grandsons doesn’t kill me anymore, and I like that! And my wife says I no longer snore. I am a little more that 2/3 complete on this journey, and I know I can meet my goal and finish the trek.
