I am extremely thankful for you. To give you an idea of just how far you have helped me come, looking back 15+ years (circa 2001 highschool grad) I struggled to break 180lbs. I wanted to be 190/200 and could never do it. Then around 2004/2005…I hit 190lbs fit. Then 200, 210….still fit. Then life caught up, I let myself go, and before I knew it, I had ballooned. Approximately 2010/2011, Jess and I were down at the beach, and I was standing by one of those “guess your weight” barkers, and I was curious….255 lbs. I was so embarrassed. Right then and there I promised myself to change. I started exercising again and slowly changed my diet. Slowly, I crept back down to 240ish. It was still an unhappy 240 though, so I kept on working out and eating healthier. Then Easter of this year Jess signed me up with you. I was apprehensive at first because of my schedule being so dynamic and downright ridiculous at times, and the adaptation was challenging at first to be honest; however, you made it so much easier than it could have been. Now at 205, I am amazed and confident. I am living, eating, and working healthy, and most of all I feel I am setting an example for my kids, that my parents didn’t necessarily do for me. My father sadly passed away early, before he got to meet either of my kids, vice verse. So I want to do anything and everything in my power to be around as long as I can. You have helped me do this, and I am so excited to “keep on keepin on”. So thank you for everything you do!!
