Grateful! Fortunate! Healthy!

Rate this Entry
A little over 7 months ago I weighed 290 pounds. Today I weigh 193, which is more or less optimal for my 6-foot frame. Losing 97 pounds has been maybe the best thing that's ever happened to me. I feel better physically, and I have newfound confidence in my ability to accomplish my goals.

For as long as I can remember I've been on/off countless different weight loss programs where I'd lose the weight and gain back double. I'm really fortunate to have had the surgery with Dr. Fielding at NYU. Besides for the surgery... Never in my life did I ever think 'certified health coach' would be added to my life's Résumé.

Just recently I became a health coach to help people lose the weight who either had surgery or did not. I followed the program (which was highly recommended by my nutritionist) ordered food from the company and followed it for 5 months. I’m proud to say that I can help others do the same.

    Hi Michael!

    Your personal story is very inspirational, and I want to personally thank you for sharing it. I took a great deal from what you said and am in the process of finding ways to incorporate your words into my own life.

    Eight months ago I weighed in at 330 pounds. I currently weigh in at 237 - that's 93 pounds lost thus far, so I can relate to where you are coming from. There are many similarities between us (or so it would seem). But that is another conversation all together.

    I applaud you on your success thus far and wish you much continued success as you strive to reach your goal weight (BTW: if you don't mind me asking, what is your goal weight?)

    Have a great week!

    Hey Shannon,

    Thanks so much, that means a lot. My first goal was to be 199 (out of the 2's) Finally!! However, my ultimate goal is 175. Hope to reach that soon!

    All the best,
    Michael
