David's Weight Loss Journey
Tell Us A Little Bit About Your Weight Struggle
I weighed 425 pounds and was eating myself to death. Depression and food ran my life.
What Was Your Wake-Up Call Or "A-Ha Moment" That Caused You To Really Commit Yourself To Succeeding?
At my doctor appointment I learned my weight was 425 lbs and all my blood work was bad and I was told I would be diabetic and could die from a number of things if I didn't change my ways. I just had my son (6 kids in all).
How Have Your Eating Habits Changed Since Beginning Your Journey? What Did You Eat Before And What Are You Eating Now?
I used to everything that was fried, a lot of salt and tons of meat—every day.
Now plant-based eating is my life.
What Is The Difference In Your Fitness Before You Started And Now?
I didn't have any endurance and I hated anything cardio. Now I can bike for 1 hour and 30 minutes (about 20 miles) and still can do more. I love doing cardio!
What Has Been The Biggest Change/Payoff For You So Far?
I have my life back.
How Much Weight Have You Lost? How Long Did It Take You To Lose It?
I've lost a total of 235 pounds and it took me just about 3 years to lose it.

You can change your life no matter what age or weight—you got this.
