Weight Loss Coach Success Story

Mike Started in June 2020. His Starting Weight Was 232 Pounds.

Hi Peggi, You asked how the family is doing and are they on the bandwagon. The answer is a resounding Yes. My wife had a consult through her doctor’s office because she could see my motivation and she could use it too. And since my regime changed she found it motivating to follow me. She has been steadily dropping weight as well and as a former distance runner she returned to that. She’s 15 years younger than I am and her knees can take the pounding so she returned to running and some yoga in between. Helping her a lot. Also she has been joining me for a 15k – 20k bike ride on the weekend.

Our younger children have joined in, though the college aged are on distant campuses and doing it remotely. All of them did the Allstate Hot Chocolate 5K on Sunday. My high school daughter runs but she also is a shot putter and discus thrower on her track team so she takes me to the health club for weight training once or twice a week. I do struggle to keep up there and opt for the senior hours sometimes to catch a break from her. All in all we all started the COVID shutdown in March by overeating and eating poorly, over drinking and sedentary.

When you got me going in June, they all followed and now we all are eating right, exercising and developing better habits all around. Still a ways to go for everyone, but they listen to the advice and motivational messages from you I pass along and are all improving. My wife and I particularly are much slimmer and fitter than we have been for many years. And candidly we haven’t been suffering at all getting there once the routines were fixed and the changes were absorbed without stress or starvation. Thanks again for all of your help and inspiration. Mike
