Start Weight 310lbs in 2015—Current Weight 193lbs
My Journey Started in 2015. I was a skinny kid growing up. I never had a weight problem because I was always playing football, baseball, and basketball. I started working, partying, and eating out a lot after high school so I gained weight. The weight really crept up after I got married. I didn’t realize how much I had gained until I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and always fatigued. Even tying my shoes was exhausting. I was 310 pounds by 2015, so my wife and I decided to change.
We started our weight loss journey with diet, exercise, and a totally different mindset. I lost a total of 130 pounds that I have maintained for 6 years. I’ve learned what is good for my body when it comes to food and exercise. Louisiana is a hard place to lose weight and keep it off, but it becomes easier when your mind, body, and spirit are aligned. We joined RevFit in 2017, and we have built relationships with the members and staff. RevFit is a true “GYM” or as I like to say “FAMILY.”
Life is always going to get in the way of fitness and that little voice in our head will tell us it hurts, it’s too hard, it’s not worth all the hard work, etc. I’ve learned that it takes a place like RevFit and like-minded people to pick you back up and get back on track.
