In July of 2014, I came off of a Carnival Cruise Ship weighing 363lbs. In August of that same year, a close friend of mine was giving blood pressure screenings at my church and was so concerned with how high my blood pressure was that she and my wife demanded that see a doctor the very next week. To no one’s surprise but my own, I was so overweight that my kidneys couldn’t handle the weight and were approaching stage 3 failure. My doctor also began prescribing me pre-diabetes medication. Coming from a Marine Corp background where PT was daily for me, I wasn’t quite sure how I got to this point in my life.
My wife was on her own weight loss journey and she joined the Virtual Accountability Group – Fit Fyne & Fabulous – a group of Divas who inspired, motivated, and challenged her through her journey. She constantly posted pictures in the group and every Saturday morning she took her measurements. One week she and her partner even won a prize for losing the most weight one week.
Even though I wasn’t in the group with the ladies, I took the same direction and began doing the same thing she did to lose weight. One of the coaches from Fit Fyne & Fabulous reached out to me because of the success I was having using the program and asked if I would help create a Men’s group using the programs and meal plans – thus my journey with Fit Fine & Flexed was underway.
Through the men’s challenge group, I continued to lose weight while helping others on their journey. Their journey inspired me and as of July 23, 2015 I have lost a total of 105lbs since last year! Thank you Fit Fyne & Fabulous and Fit Fine & Flexed Team!! My recent doctor’s appointment was an exciting one as he couldn’t believe the weight loss and he has even referred some of his patients my way who are seeking to live a healthier lifestyle.
