Being able to buy off the rack breathing easier being able to last longer at working less pain less medication savings on groceries (don't buy junk any more) exploring new foods, Though I've eaten foods like dog, cat, rat, monkey, snake, snails ants and rice bugs, elephant etc. These were not consumed by choice except the rice bugs...lI was 7 sheets to the wind and decided to try it out ..I quit drinking a bit after that.
At 45 I had a 28 in waist and a 52 in chest I can still wear the same shirts but only upside down, each leg is larger than my waist was.
I have been told for 20 years to loose weight and given "diets" and me with no supervision ... I went from 181 to 357. You see I was confined to a chair and feeling very angry and deserted so I, being a good cook, rewarded myself to feel better all kinds of good stuff-- ya you know what I mean- - With this program I am having success. I am not kidding myself, this weight did not get there over night and won't go away over night but I have gone from a 62 to a 52 and in the process had all my meds lowered (or DC'd) and I can shop in a store now..not a fat man shop. I feel good. This program puts me in charge, shows me what I am doing before I do it and helps me make meaningful changes. Just like going into combat if you see a man who says they aren't afraid -- stay away-- he's a psych case or a liar, either way he's trouble......A fat guy who says it doesn't bother him is the same.
Semper-fi at least to yourself, never quit, never give up.

Immediate reward is losing that "stuffy" feeling, then I love feeling more energetic from eating right, then I get all this confidence not only from looking better, but from knowing I accomplished a goal. I just started here and I'm so motivated to make this health journey the best it can be!
