I am a 57 year old tax and legal expert. As a professional, I consider myself a well-disciplined businessman. However, for the past 20 years the discipline I brought to the workplace did not carry over to managing my weight.
In fact, several of my family members are also struggling with health issues as result of being overweight. I recently lost a younger sister to obesity-related illnesses and an older sister remains in a coma today. What a wakeup call for me! I knew I had to take immediate steps to lower my blood pressure and lose weight in order to save my life.
I weighed 257 lbs with 3 rolls of fat around my stomach when I started Encore’s Peak Performance in October. Three months later I am thrilled to report that I have lost 31 lbs. I have one stomach now and my high-blood pressure is under control. Success for me also includes the support I receive from Encore Counselors who hold me accountable. I do not want to disappoint them. They help me select the right foods when I eat out – which is frequent due to my busy schedule. I have referred several colleagues and friends to Encore. I believe a referral to Encore is a gift of life.
