- No, that’s not my address. It was my weight in June 2005. Lying sick in the hospital in Summer 2005, the doctors told me to prepare to die. I felt trapped in my own body, but there was a small glimmer of hope that God would somehow rescue me.
From 2005 to 2019, I was in and out of the hospital with many doctor visits. Congestive Heart Failure, A-Fib, Hypertension – just to name a few of my conditions. I tried making changes through the years, only to lose and regain. In 2019, true help finally began to be revealed to me. My Pastor was teaching about the God Kind of Health from 3 John 1:2, and I knew it was for me. I realized that if I would cooperate with what God says to do with my body and what He says to put in my body, I could experience Health. I had a choice to make. I had to become responsible for what I was eating.
In December of 2019, I set out to make major changes. I was referred to a doctor that treats beyond prescription. He believes food should be our medicine. He taught me how to make conscious food choices. On my first visit to him, I had come down over the year to 558 pounds. I began to follow his plan, and the scale began to change. In 2022, I noticed my scale began to stall in the upper 400’s. I knew exactly what was missing; “Movement.”
While surfing social media, my wife came across RevFit. When we visited, I thought “Man these people are CRAZY!!” Turns out it was the CRAZY I needed!! It didn’t take me long to see that RevFit is truly a family of people who really did care about me as a person and would help me reach my health and fitness goal. One of my fears was getting on that spin bike and being laughed at by others. That never happened. Every Instructor and every person spinning has always encouraged me.
When I joined RevFit, I weighed 468 pounds; within 3 months of Spin, I have lost 41 pounds and continue to lose. My desire is to be able to run a 5k without having to stop. I also want to be able to go to the store to shop for clothes and not be forced to go to DXL because no other store has clothes to fit me. I realize through these years I have the final say about My Health and well-being, and I have the Power to Change it!!
